Question and Answers

Q:

Why is the 6" section of the 6-9-12" triple radiant element of my Kenmore range model 790.96593601 not working?

A:

This range uses a control board to supply voltage to the cook top elements. Your failure could be in the control board, the wiring or the element. A technician would normally be needed to check the voltage coming out of the control board to the element to determine whether or not the control board is the failed component or not. I do not recommend that you attempt a live voltage check such as this yourself. If you are able to unplug the range and access the element, you can check it for a loose or failed wiring connection. Using the wiring diagrams below, you may be able to take a resistance reading on the inner coil to determine whether it is open (failed). The first image shows the wiring diagram with the brown wire traced from the surface unit control (power board) to the element. The black wire is traced to the terminal block. The brown wire supplies the small section of the element with the L2 leg of power and the black wire supplies L1. Since the other sections of the element heat, the black wire is okay. The second image shows a schematic diagram of the same element. The third image shows the location of the power board and a parts diagram of the elements. Unplug the range before accessing any internal components. You can access the elements by opening the oven door and removing the screws at the front of the cook top. Lift the cook top up from the front (it should have hinges on the back) and prop it up securely with a stick or other item to access the element. If you can determine the failure using the information provided, you can fix the wiring failure or replace the failed component.

You can view a parts list diagram and order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

Q:

Microwave Oven - Noise Level

A:

It is hard to determine whether a noise level in a microwave is normal without being able to physically hear it. There are some issues that will make a microwave louder. If the microwave is positioned on a counter that is not level or is unstable, it will vibrate and make more noise. If the turntable is not aligned properly inside the cavity, it could make a growling noise. You can check those issues. I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.
