If the range surface element does not work, ensure that the switch on the surface element is on and is connecting properly. If the problem persists, examine the surface element board. Each burner is controlled by a relay on the surface element board. If the relays are damaged, the surface element will not work. Replace any defective surface element boards with a new ones. Remember to check the manufacturer's manual to identify the specific surface element required.

If the oven door still refuses to close properly, examine the gasket and confirm it is clean and in good repair. Additionally, check the armature and springs, adjusting as necessary until the door closes.
