How does one get in touch with Joey S? I'm trying to figure out how to replace the glass range top. The pictures Joey S. sent are to small to see. He says he can send larger ones, but does not include a way top contact him.

Q:

Is there a dual function element also or just the dual switch?

A:

Based on the model number you submitted, your range does not have a dual function surface element. The model number you submitted appears to have two 6" radiant burners for the two back burners and it has two 9" radiant burners for the two front burners and NO dual function surface element. Since the right front radiant surface burner is NOT a dual element burner it does not require a dual element infinite switch. If the "ELEMENT ON" indicator light for the right hand burners will not turn off, it could be caused by the right front or right rear burner/infinite switches.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore oven model 790.96002600 heat?

A:

It seems like you indicated that the bake element was tested and is still functional. If not, you can unplug the range and check the resistance of the bake element. It should measure between 10 and 40 ohms of resistance with one wire removed. If the element is okay then it is likely that you have a wiring failure or a bad electronic control board. The wiring diagram for your range is shown in the image below. The broil circuit is traced it yellow. That circuit is apparently good since the broiler works properly. Part of the bake circuit is traced in red. A wiring failure in this circuit could be causing your problem. You could unplug the range and check the resistance through this circuit from the control board with a volt/ohm meter. If you measure the same resistance through the circuit (10 - 40 ohms) that you measured directly off of the bake element, then the circuit is okay. Replacing the control board (part 316557108) would fix this heating problem.

NOTE: Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing or checking internal components.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.
