Middle ring of triple element does not "glow" as bright as center and outer ring. A new three level front burner was installed by service tech, under warranty. The new burner ohms is 46 center, 69 middle, and 56 outer. Tech tested the old burner ohms, and it was similar to the new burner. He did not test wattage at control knob.

I don't know if triple element burner is poor design and working properly or if there is a problem. If this is design, I am returning range.

For more details, check out this Sears discussion page. You can see a picture of the burner.

Hi Jake,
Thanks for your reply.
Do you mean exchange the entire range or change out the faulty electrolux element with the Whirlpoool triple element? My range is one month old. Will a Sear's tech put a Whirlpool element in a sears range?

No, you would need to exchange the entire range, as Whirlpool parts won't work in Electrolux models.
