Question and Answers


Kenmore Electric Range Model 79094851300


The image below shows the wiring diagram for your range. The L1 voltage through that burner switch is apparently closing the contact through that circuit traced in purple since the "element on" light illuminates. There could still be a problem with the burner switch, the wiring or the element. You could have a problem with the simmer select switch if your failure is on that left front burner.

I assume that only one burner is not working. You can check the element by switching it with the other one that is the same size to see if it works. You may have already done this. If the other burner element works in that position then you will need to replace that bad element. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the element is not causing your problem, you can unplug the range and lift the cook top. Check for damage on that terminal block for the element that is not working. You may see that terminal block melted or the wire insulation discolored if that terminal block is bad. If you find no wiring problems, then the next step would be to check the wiring on that burner switch (with the range still unplugged ). If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can use the wiring diagram shown below to check the continuity through the burner switch (L1 to H1 and L2 to H2) if necessary. If that burner switch is bad, it will need to be replaced. You can check that simmer switch if the failure is in the left front burner.

These tips may help you fix this burner problem on your own. I you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
