I have had this problem with other stoves, and have never been able to fix it...

The coil heating elements on my electric range are uneven. They are not level and this makes sauteeing and frying a challenge. All of the liquid in the pan goes to the lowest edge. I've tried replacing the coils, but since that didn't work, I'm guessing the problem has to do with where they are plugged in.

Any suggestions?

** I've tried replacing the coils, but that didn't work **

You replaced them with ones *the appliance manufacturer specified* for use on the make and model of range you have or just with any 'off the shelf' replacement element?

There are at least a couple of popular range surface elements which look very similar but have slightly different height specifications. If the wrong ones where installed, it could account for an uneven fit.

I can't see the element receptacle being the cause unless they have been replaced previously but might be a possibility. If the element prongs which fit into the receptacle are bent, that could produce unevenness.

If the element's drip pans or trim rings have been replaced previously, that might account for a poor fit as well.

You can read about what information is needed to get the proper replacement parts for your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my site linked below.
