A couple of the burners on my Whirlpool range, model # RF360BXEW, don't work.  How do I test to find out what the problem is?  One of the burners will heat up sometimes but if you change the temperature, it will go completely off.  The range is almost 8 years old.  Also, assuming that I'm able to fix the problem, where can I get porcelain drip pans for the larger burners?  The ones I got from Wal-Mart don't fit even though the smaller ones fit.

Thanks

wow,do all of your appliances have a consiracy against you??  if you have a coil top range,you can buy a set of burner bowls(black)  can get you the part number later, as for the elements working intermittently,pull the elements out and check the ends of them for signs of overheating as the block in which they plug into may have become loose/overheated.  the terminal blocks for each side come as a pair w/wiring back to the switches part #9751014

Haha.  I'm beginning to think that they do.  And just when I need them.  Thanks for the part number.

Use your meter to test the burner switches.  Also, inspect the end spades on the burner elements for pitting as this is a sign that the recepticles are worn out.
