Some sparks happening , can see through glass top.
Elements are under the glass.Other thing is one of the elemant cannt be controled or reduce the heat, it stays at same heating level even though I turn the knob to reduce.
Much appreciate your help.

1 bad connector blocks

2 bad infinite control

Old hob/cooktop? Replacement parts cost may be a significant fraction of the cost of a new cooktop.
