Thank you for your question.  Trying to cook when the elements do not heat consistently is upsetting. This sounds like it is either the elements or the surface element control. The element controls are keys 54 and 54A in the first parts image at Sears Parts Direct . If the issue is not with these controls, then the elements themselves are most likely bad. See the third parts image.  Check to see if the surface indicator light turns on when that right front burner is turned to the single direction to heat just the inner portion of that element. If that light does not turn on, then it is likely that the element control switch needs to be replaced.  Remember to disconnect the power to the range before accessing any internal parts for repair or service. There is usually a tech sheet with the electrical diagram in the control panel.  If electrical tests are needed to trace a wiring problem, I do recommend having a technician visit to diagnose and make repairs. You can schedule a technician at Sears Home Services . If further assistance is needed, please reply.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

cooktop element will not turn off. stays on high

A:

I know how dangerous it can be to have a burner that will not power off since the burner can heat up so high that most likely it will melt another part. While you are waiting for an expert answer, I did manage to find a link that will provide you with more information about your problem. I hope my link is useful.

A:

This range uses a power relay board and a user interface control board for the surface elements. There is a known safety issue on this model of range with serial numbers between VF122XXXXX and VF334XXXXX. If your range falls within those serial number parameters, I recommend that you call Sears for service at 1-800-469-4663 (1-800-4MY-HOME). Although I cannot absolutely promise that you won't be charged for this call, it is almost certain that you will not have to pay for the repair. You will likely need to agree to a fee when you set up the service since the range is out of the original 1 year warranty. That fee almost certainly will not be charged once the technician verifies that your serial number is in the above range. The technician will replace the power relay control board on the back of the range to fix this problem and then test the range to make sure that it is working properly.

If the range is outside the serial number parameters provided above, you likely have a stuck relay on the power relay control board that is on the back of the range. There is a chance that you could have a problem with a user interface control board. I recommend that you have a service technician verify this failure and repair the range. Here is a link for the Sears Service website in case you need it: Sears Home Services .

If you need more help, reply with additional details and the full serial number of your range.

Q:

Why does my Kenmore Elite electric range beep and show the F7 code quite regularly?

A:

The F7 indicates that one of the surface unit potentiometers (infinite burner switches) is not connected to the UIB (User Interface Board) or is bad. A failed UIB could also cause this problem. Since it is an intermittent problem, it is likely hard to diagnose. If you have infinite burner switches that are obviously not working properly then the failed burner switches will likely need to be replaced. If that does not solve the problem, then the UIB will likely need to be replaced.

I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair this problem so that you can avoid replacing unnecessary parts. This range as multiple control boards and replacing the wrong parts can be expensive.
