SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

First disconnect power to the range to check resistance. Terminals 1A & 2A connects to the element temp limit switch (hi-limit). You will need an ohmmeter to check the temp limit switch. If the temp limit switch reads 0 resistance (closed) between 1A & 2A it is good & I suspect the cooktop lockout relay board or the simmer select board. Remember to use extreme caution when working with voltage. If you do not read 120volts from L2 on the surface unit switch to neutral the simmer select board is faulty. If you do not read 120volts from L1 on the surface unit switch to neutral the cooktop lockout relay board is faulty. Please see the image provided below for wiring details.

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 .
