I have a Whirlpool Electric Range, Model No. RY160LXTS03.

Customer Question
I have a Whirlpool...

I have a Whirlpool Electric Range, Model No. RY160LXTS03. Left front burner not working. I replaced heating element, but couldn't get to element switch.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I know I left left burner on all night several months ago by accident. What is the likely cause, and what is the next best step for me to take. I would like not to have to bring in an appliance contractor service. Thank you, Richard

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

All other burners working great. I very recently replaced all burner elements. Left front still not working. I have moved out of state, so my daughter or her husband will attempt to fix (with your input).

I provided exact model number.

You have to replace the burner switch or check the burner socket to the unit to get it working again. Can you use a mirror and flashlight to check inside the socket to see if the terminals are bad?

Range is 4-5 years old. Purchased from Lowe's
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
It appears the burner switch is beneath a metal shield, so can't get to it. I'm not at range location, so can't look at it. I think the it's likely the fault is in the burner socket. What's most likely, the switch or the socket?
