Question and Answers


What would have caused "pop" noise when I turned off the simmer element and now none of the burners work?


You did indicate if the oven will heat or not. If the oven will not heat the likely failure preventing other 3 surface elements from working is that the pop noise indicated a short and it likely caused the circuit breaker to trip inside the house circuit breaker box. I recommend locating the breakers dedicated for the range and reset both breakers by turning them OFF and back ON 2-3 times and then recheck the operation.

The simmer burner has a "simmer select control board" which likely has shorted. It's possible to have a shorted burner switch too. The simmer select board will likely show signs of being burnt or shorted if it had failed. The simmer select control board could be located behind the console, rear panel or it could be located behind the left or right side panel. NOTE: If you attempt to repair the range yourself be sure to disconnect the range from the power source before removing any panels.

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

On pressing the simmer select button for the front left element on our Kenmore range, there was a pop, an electric flash and element stopped working. The simmer select board was damaged so I replaced both the board and the simmer select button. The element still does not work although with simmer select button on and the element turned on, the light flashes and I can hear a relay tripping. Is this now a fault with the element control ? All other elements and the oven work perfectly.
