Coil Element(s) - Not Working - Electric Cooktop

Possible Solutions

Are the controls set correctly?

Make sure to push the knob in before turning to a setting. If the knob is not pushed down before turning the cooktop will not turn on.

Are the elements not as red? 

Coil elements on new electric and freestanding ranges have changed starting in June 2018. Ranges and cooktops using this type of burner are now equipped with temperature-limiting coils. This change is due to updated UL (Underwriters Laboratory) standards. This change will be standard for all brands and all replacement parts as well.

The outer element coils will remain on all the time but may appear to not "glow" as strongly as your previous element. The inner coil will cycle on and off and glow red when it is cycling on. It will glow, then turn off and on, as the burner is being used. This is a normal operation.
