Q:

Model 7909622240A Electric Range.

A:

I completely understand your need for some type of instructions on how to properly replace the simmer select switch on your range. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the unit. At this time, I was unable to locate information that would be helpful in regards to your question. Some of these questions that are asked will need specific research and will be answered by an expert with-in two business days but usually sooner.

The first step in completing this repair is to unplug the range to disconnect electrical power. 

 

You can then remove the upper back panel behind the console. Note: Metal edges on that back panel are sharp. Protective gloves are recommended.

 

I posted a picture below that shows a similar switch to the one that you are replacing. The top image shows the switch inserted in the housing in that console. The simmer switch in your range may be slightly different but the basic repair procedure is the same. You can release that switch and pull it out as shown in the second photograph in that image. Pull the wires off and attach the wires to the new switch. You can then insert the new switch in the housing (shown in the bottom photograph of that image).

 

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

Q:

Kenmore Electric Range model 7909622240a not heating up anywhere

A:

A non working Rangeis not something any of us want to see. If you are technically handy, this is a good site to get instruction and fix some things yourself. If you do not feel confident doing your own repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the scheduler. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check the bottom link for some possibilities. Hope this is of help.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom the range has lost one leg of voltage. The voltage supply should be checked with a volt meter across the two outside terminals where the power cord is attached to the back of the range. The voltage must measure 220-240 volts across the two outside terminals and the voltage must measure 110-120 volts when measuring across the center terminal to each outside terminals. If the voltage supply is correct, then there must be loose or burnt wire connection at the terminal block or in the wire harness.

NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

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 .

Thanks for your help with this. I did lose one leg of voltage but the problem was with the outlet. The plug seemed to go in much easier than it should have. I looked in the outlet with a flashlight and the metal inside the outlet was not making complete contact with the prong on the plug. Long story short I installed a new outlet and everything is working normal again. Thanks again for your help with this!
