Question and Answers


Replaced Terminal block for left front element and still not working. 790.9421940E.


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The failure could be the burner switch or the simmer select board providing there are no burnt wire connections at the burner switch or at the simmer select board. The surface element requires 220 volts in order to heat. The element needs line one (L1) and line two (L2) voltages or it will not heat.

I added an image below of the wiring diagram. NOTE: I do not recommend making any voltage measurements unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I strongly suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
