Question about Kenmore 91112 / 91114 / 91117 Electric Kitchen Range

Burner works intermittently

I have the above range/stove. Two of the burners on the stove work intermittently. Sometimes they do, sometimes not. The connection at the base of one actually sparked a little while trying to get it to work the other day. I have tried removing the burners and reseating the buriner in the receptical, but this only works for a little while if at all. what would cause this type of problem and how can I permanently/cocsistantly get these burners working.

    My problem is similar but in my case only the Left front, speed heating, large element stopped working all together. I have tested the elements by

    swapping with the other remaining large element, no change. Both elements are good as the suspect unit works in the Right Rear fitting. The problem appears to be with the actual recepticle that the element plugs into. Couldn't see any wire damage but hard to see without taking apart. Everything else works, fuses are good to. RS.

You have either a bad burner or a bad control for same, or bad connections.

With power removed use a pair of pliers to crimp the connections (after cleaning the ones on burner) going to the burner.

SOURCE: Kenmore gas range

hi Clogged burners are a very common problem with gas ranges because foods spilled on the burners block the gas ports and prevent ignition. On some gas ranges you can remove the top ring of the burner to expose the ports. Here's how to clean a burner:

Step 1: Turn off the power supply, both gas and electric, to the range. Then remove the burner.

Step 2: Soak the burner in a solution of mild household detergent and water. Clean it with a soft cloth.

Step 3: Clear the gas ports with a pin or needle, rinse the burner, and let it dry. Caution: Do not use a toothpick or matchstick to clean the gas ports. If the tip of the wood gets stuck in the burner ports, it could cause a serious blockage.

Step 4: When the burner is completely dry, replace it, and turn on the power and the gas supply.

check the burner socket, it is likely that contact is being lost where the burner connects to the hardwired portion of the system (the socket). It is not unusual for the socket to "burn up" when there is a poor connection to the burner resulting in the burner being replaced and the new burner not working or working intermittently.

Yes, you can repair the appliance yourself and save on the cost of labor and services charges. Unfortunately, when these triple burners go bad in the manner you describe, there is no way to repair only the portion that is burned out. The burner is one complete piece and needs to be replaced as an entire assembly. The following link explains how:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3692628-surface_burner_replacement_electric


Replacements parts can be purchased from any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need. I suspect your model number is actually 790.96593601 or 790.96593602. These are the only two numbers that cross to the model number you provided. If I'm not correct, please post back with your COMPLETE model number.

The part number for the triple burner is 316216702. Keep in mind, this part, alone is not cheap. The cheapest price I found was about $120 at appliancepartspros.com. However, you would spend much more if you included the added price of a service call and labor charges. Use the part number provided to search any other web sources you like to see if you can find the burner listed elsewhere for a better price. Use the part number as some websites may not list your particlar model, but will carry most parts.

If you have any questions please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

The electric panel on my smooth top stove just went out with a popping sound rendering the oven unusable but the stove top burners are working.............what could have happened and is it worth it to get...


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good "blue" arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Tip

Electric stove burner won't heat sometimes heats


If you electric top burner stops heating or intermittantly heats the most common problem is a loose connection where the actual burner connects within the socket (to make an electrical connection). It will over time become loose and/or corroded. To do this you simply lift the top portion of the stove up (remove the grates prior to doing this.Normally you can squeeze the pins inward slight so the burner makes a good contact and use a piece of sand paper to clean the contacts.

Igniter works sometimes.....stove won't heat


Check your oven thermo. sensor at room temp. you should have between 1 to 1.1K ohms. If not replace it. You also should check your burner and oven relays.
