Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your oven not working properly. We are here to help. I suspect you are not getting 240 vac to the range. You need to reset the circuit breaker and see it that corrects the problem. If that did not help you need to turn the circuit breaker off to the range. Next, slide the range out, and inspect where the power cord or wire from the wall connects to the range. Look at the terminal block for a burnt wire on the range. You need to replace the bad wire. After that turn the power back on and measure for 240 vac with a multimeter. If you did not find anything wrong, measure for voltage at the terminal block. Next, if the correct voltage is at the terminal block, then the problem is at the control panel. You should measure 120 volts on the black and white wires at the board. If you measure that voltage then the control board should power up. If not, then the control board is bad. If the board powers up, you can check for 240 volts between black and red wires at the control board. When you set the control in the bake mode, you should measure 240 volts between yellow and orange. In broil mode, you should measure 240 volts between blue and orange. If the control board powers up, and you have 240 volts going into the board on red and black terminal. However, if you do not measure 240 volts out of the board, then the control board is defective. If you measure normal voltage out of that control board to the elements, then I recommend that you unplug the range and check that orange wire that is common to both elements. The wire schematic below will help you perform the tests. I hope this helps.

John is right about not having 240 volts. You probably only have 120 volts on the L2 leg (red wire in that wiring diagram). Reset the breaker and you should be able to get the burners to work. You may have a bad oven element that shorted out the board. I don't recommend that you check that live voltage as described above. That is dangerous.

Q:

Why do the top burners cycle on/off without reaching temp on my Kenmore electric range?

A:

In the wiring diagram provided you see the temperature limit switch. This limit switch is what cycles the burner off if you fail to put a pan on that burner; this is a safety feature & is normal operation on this model of range. Also, if the pan does not match the burner size the burner will cycle on & off rapidly. If you are 100% sure you are using the correct size & style of cookware I recommend calling for service.
