Know When it's Time to Replace Your Stove Burners
If you own an electric stove, it's important that you check to see if the range burners are working properly. It isn’t uncommon for older electric stove burners to burn out, heat unevenly, or become damaged. As a result, your foods cook unevenly — or not at all.
Sometimes, a stove burner can be fixed with a little bit of cleaning. However, if you notice any of the following issues, it’s likely time to purchase replacement stove burners:
• The burner only works occasionally
• You have to jiggle the burner to get it to work properly
• The burner glows red hot in some areas but is black and cooler in others
• The coil is cracked
• Your pots and pans show damage due to uneven heating

How to Change Your Electric Range Burner
As with most appliances, stove parts will need to be replaced and repaired with age and use. Whether it's a drip pan or an electric range burner, replacement of many stove parts can be quick and hassle free. Here are some suggestions regarding maintenance of your electric range burner, such as how to check up on your heating element's performance and how to replace it.
1. Checking your electric range burner Even if you use your stove regularly, it can be hard to detect any problems. However, there's an easy way to test its performance even before you notice any issues. First, turn up your burner onto the highest setting and wait until it heats up entirely. If you see spots that are not glowing red, it usually means that your element is beginning to fail and will need to be replaced. Replacement will also be necessary if you notice a much brighter glowing spot in a specific area of the element.
If you suspect an element is bad, you can also test it by plugging it into a properly functioning burner area. If it doesn't work there, you know it's time to replace it. If it does, you may have a problem in your connections and should call an appliance repair provider to get it fixed correctly.
2. Replacing an electric range burner The first step in replacing your electric range burner is finding the right part for your appliance. Frigidaire® offers a wide selection of stove top burners for top brands like GE, Kenmore, Maytag, Frigidaire, or Whirlpool that should fit your unit perfectly. First, make sure you fine the right size replacement for your stovetop. Next, unplug the old burner and remove it as you would if you were cleaning it. Finally, just insert the new burner. It's that simple.
3. Cleaning and maintenance Buildup of grease and dirt can prevent a burner from heating correctly. A thorough cleaning could be a quick fix for your cooktop. To check to see if there's buildup, unplug your range, detach the burner, and look at the connecting prongs. If you notice dirt, clean the burner as you normally would. If there is blackness or corrosion on the prongs, it's time to replace the burner. To maintain your electric range burner, be sure to clean it regularly with a non-corrosive cleaner.
