I have a kitchen aid stove/oven does not allow for low/simmer. Only works on high heat.
model: YKERA205PS0

adjusting the knob does not lower the heat element. What could it? Where to start?
Thank you

Added complete model number

Thanks Dan. What switch? At the knob? Can you be more specific?
the model number is YKERA205PS0. I was missing the zero

The knob is attached onto a switch. That switch is what is malfunctioning and will need to be replaced.


Did you look at the page at the link I supplied and the rest of the information found there??

The Appliance Clinic said:

Heat Control​

Power to the surface elements is cycled on and off by the element control switch that is mounted behind the control knob on the control console...
