Major Appliances/amana stove


I own a amana arh6700e stove with a dual radiant burner that acts up.  Even when on the lower dual setting, it still boils water rapidly. Also lately it has trouble shutting completely off.  You think you have it off, but later you find out it isn't.  So is it the switch or the burner?  How to test each?  Also how do I get to them?  Thanks

All testing for the problem you are describing would be from the rear at the back of the switch of the burner in question.  This infinite switch controls the voltage going to the burner in question.   Unplug the unit and then remove the rear top cover.  Paying special attention to the switch in question, measure voltage coming out of terminals marked H1 & H2.  These two terminals should not have voltage if the burner is turned to the off position.  Let me know what you find.  

Waiting to hear from you,
