The general electrical rating information for that type of range is shown in the image below. You can check the electrical rating plate on your exact model to make sure that it matches the KW rating shown below. That rating plate should be on the base of the range just in front of the right front leveling leg. It is the sticker that also has the model number and serial number on it. Based on the KW rating of that range, it should need a 40 amp breaker with 8 gauge copper wire size. Local and national electrical codes will also apply to the power supply for that range. Using the 30 amp breaker and 6 gauge wiring should not cause any problems as long as the wiring is installed according to your local and national codes. The 30 amp breaker will probably not trip unless you were using all of the surface burners at the same time and the broil element was also on. The more restrictive 30 amp breaker is safer than a 40 or 50 amp breaker. Based on the information shown below and the KW rating that you will probably find on the rating plate of the range, I don't recommend that you switch the breaker to the 50 amp size unless it conforms with local and national electrical codes. The 6 gauge copper wiring should be okay if it is installed according to the proper codes.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The sound you're hearing is the burner switch contacts opening and closing. The current flowing through the contacts will cause a slight arc as the contacts are closing and opening. This is not abnormal and the only way to resolve the noise is to replace that burner switch.

The burner switch #316436001 for Kenmore range model 790.94332701 can be purchased at Sears Parts Direct if you plan on replacing it yourself. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the panel from behind the console.

Transfer one wire at a time from the old switch to the corresponding terminal on the new switch if you plan on replacing it yourself.

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

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
