Thank you for contacting ManageMyLife.com regarding the large burner on your Kenmore electric range that gets too hot. I know this can be a frustrating situation and I am happy to help you today.

Based off of your description, more than likely the infinite switch (p/n 318293830) is the problem and it will need to be replaced. The control panel will need to be taken off in order to access the two screws securing the burner switch to the mounting plates. Remove one wire at a time from the old switch and transfer it to the matching terminal on the new switch. I added an image below for accessing the burner switches. You should only need 1-6 in the image below to guide you. Please be sure to disconnect the power to the unit before attempting to service the range.

Parts can be purchased from Sears PartsDirect.

If you do not feel comfortable repairing this issue yourself, service can be scheduled at the following link: Sears Home Services.

I really hope this information helps you today. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand not wanting to pay to have the range repaired again in such a short period of time.

With out the model number I can only give you a general answer.

I am sorry but it does sound like the same problem when you self clean the range sometimes the oven temperature sensor gets to hot and will fail.

If you will use the link and give me the model number information I will be glad to help you fix your range so you will not have to pay for service again.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

The model number is 790.45482503. Will this just keep happening? Isn't this a design flaw of some sort or other? Thank you for your help.

A:

Thank you for giving me the model number. I do not think it is a design flaw but rather a quality issue perhaps with the component from the vendor. I am sorry about that, but the next part may last the life of the range. I had one go bad on my own range when it was a little over a year old and the replacement has been working ever since, which has been 12 years. I would suggest you replace it and hope for the best. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
