Hi,

**model# 665.92024101**

A free standing range, ceran glass top.

If the element is good, if the surface switch is new and wired correctly but the element will not work...leaves the heat switch on the side of the element ( which doesn't appear to come seperate from the element ) or the wiring between the element and switch.

The square heat switch with the probe going across the element does 2 jobs....shuts off the element if it gets too hot and turns on the hot surface light...this switch may have been damaged when the original surface switch let go. It can be ohmed as per the wire diagram that comes with the range.
