Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore electric range #79096011406: I just replaced the infinate switch#5303974067 because the element indicator light wouldn't ever turn off.

A:

Having a burner that is not shutting off sounds very dangerous and I understand your concern in wanting this problem on your range. While you are waiting for an expert answer, I recommend you resubmit your question and include the model number of your range so that the expert will provide you with a more detailed answer. I did manage to find a link about a similar problem and I have attache it below, please keep in mind that the link describes a part number for a different model range. I hope my link is useful.

A:

The circuit for the surface element indicator light is traced in purple on the wiring diagram shown below. Since the light is still staying on even though you replaced the infinite switches, you apparently still have a bad switch on one of the other burners that is causing this problem. You can unplug the range and check the resistance between L1 and P on each of the infinite switches to determine which one is causing this problem. You should detect an open load or infinite resistance between the L1 and P contacts on an infinite switch when it is turned off. If you detect zero ohms (continuity) between these contacts on a burner switch (with the switch in the off position), then that switch will need to be replaced.

This information should help you fix your surface indicator light problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Q:

What is wrong with my range model 790.96011406 when the oven element overheated & broke in half and the stove top burners maybe too hot also?

A:

A problem with the electronic oven control board or a short in the element could cause the oven element to overheat and break. If you replace the oven element and the oven and bake elements work normally you may not have a problem.

The stove top burners are controlled by switches and a temperature limit switch. The limit switch will normally shut off the burner element to prevent damage to the ceramic cook top. If the burners and the oven elements are not working properly, I recommend that you call a technician to diagnose and repair the range.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
