This IS something you can fix

There are three likely causes, in most common occurence
there are fuses in the rear control console that blow
the socket does wear and require replacement
the temperature controller wires come loose, or the control fails.

check first for fuses
second swap the cables from the controller of the burner that doesnt work, to another controller to test if it is the controller or the socket.

  • swap cables with power disconnected and do NOT leave bare cables unsecured even while testing, better a live repairer, than a live wire
if the burner then works the controller is dead
if the burner still does not work, the socket is dead

the local parts store, or even a hardware store, will have the parts, even if branded frigidaire or ge or generic instead of kenmore, (Sears service is expensive and slow) many models of stove use the same socket, element, controller, clock, circuit board

Kenmore stove oven does not shut off


Wow, this post is going to be extremely late. Actually, I was able to get a new control unit for my Kenmore gas range from Sears Parts Dirext for $156.06. That includes shipping and tax. The burners work without it. We just cannot use the oven until the new board comes in. It's very easy to replace. Remove the panel screws on the back (just the top) and you have access to unplug the unit and remove the 4 screws holding the assembly in.

Large burner won't shut off


This stove uses a special switch that turns one way for the large burner and the other way for the smaller burner. I was not aware that this had a seperate simmer burner on it, however. I think you using the wrong term there.

This is not computer controlled--the only computer on it should be the oven switch. I would assume that you need to replace the switch for the dual-size burner. If you take your model number in to Sears, or log onto Sears dot com, you should be able to get to the PARTS DIRECT web site on the computer, and if they ever sold that model you should be able to pull up a parts breakdown with expanded drawing and part numbers and prices. You should be able to buy the part from them. The part should be virtually the same as ANY recent model Frigidaire or Kenmore stove with the same style burner. This should be a very easy repair for you to make yourself, assuming that you know a little about working with electricity--remember, this stove USES 220 VOLTS!

Check out all of the wiring coming into the switch and going from the switch to the burner to be sure that there is not a short!

If you have one of the older smooth surface stoves, where the burners are part of the ceramic top, all bets are off, but anything you bought new in the last half-dozen years, should have a separate burner underneath a glass top, and the repair should be simple. Even with the older stove, it is still likely the switch, and should be no problem.

Kenmore electric stove model c880.6383880 left front burner does not work....it is not the element itself as it heats up on another burner.


hi,

sounds like you have the old-style coil elements on you stove.

your problem is the switch under the element, called the infinite switch. i would suggest to have a technician replace it. they usually charge for the labour but if you have never done it before, it's money well spent.
