Cooking on electric stove top. Put water in pot and turned heat to 8. At boil, turned down to 4 and put half bag of peas in, then covered and went to living room. After 5 minutes, I smelled burned metal, ran to kitchen to find pot melted to element (white hot, not red hot). Turned off burner and moved pot to unused burner, leaving a trail of molten metal. I've never seen an infinite control switch fail in such a way...
