Home cooks turn to Kenmore Elite appliances ranges for their streamlined designs and accurate temperature settings. Problems with the cooking functions of an Elite range interrupt meal preparation. With these steps, you can find the source of the problem and identify the best repair options.
One of the most common reasons that a Kenmore Elite range stops working is a problem with the power or gas. For an electric range, check to ensure the power cord is plugged in and power is moving through the outlet. If the outlet is broken, look for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. If your gas range stops working, ensure you have enough gas left, and then, examine the gas lines for leaks and loose connectors. Replace broken or cracked lines with the correct stove repair parts.
If a gas burner won't heat, look for food buildup on the spark igniter electrode. If your stove has a Cooktop Lockout feature, try resetting it according to the directions in your manual. If the burner continues to malfunction, you may need to replace range parts such as the spark igniter switch or the spark igniter electrode.
An electric element failure can prevent the oven from operating correctly. One gas and electric range DIY repair help tip is to test the different functions. If your food cooks but doesn't brown, you may need a new broiler. An oven that doesn't reach the correct temperature may need a new thermostat. If the oven doesn't heat at all, examine the electronic control board.
