The inner right front element will not heat up on our Kenmore Elite ceramic stove top. The middle and outer elements on the right front work fine. Why is this happening?

I had the same thing happen on a brand new Kenmore Elite ceramic top stove; I call the service tech as it was still on warranty, and I was told "All is working just as it should!" Appearantly, due to goverment energy efficiency regulations, the middle ring on these "power elements" designed for 3 sizes runs at a lower wattage so they can keep their "power smart" ratings. Nice of them to tell us this in the manual. I was also told to buy new pots and pans; the ones that transfer heat evenly through the bottom (to compensate for the element that does not provide even heating)! Some people just get paid big $$ sitting around all day thinking this stuff up!  I want my coil stove back!

Inner element burned out. Either burner needs replacing or control switch is bad. Take out burner and see if coil has a break in it. IF not, then switch is bad. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Front right burner under stove top model 62960002603 only heats to LOW heat. It has a single, dual, triple mode setting and will not heat up to highest setting. HELP.


I looked up the model number you gave. It is a Kenmore range.The part number for that element is 7406P494-60. When you say it only heats to low, do you mean that only the center portion of the element lights up? Normally, when this occurs, it is an indication that the middle element and outer elements have a break. The problem could also be a faulty infinite switch(burner control). The part for that particular control is 7450P011-60. You will need a voltage/ohm meter to troubleshoot further. This can be a very INVOLVED repair attempt. I recommend, that if you're not comfortable disassembling your unit, call for service--this can absolutely be a tricky diagnosis and much care is needed to not damage the glass cooktop when checking the element. I hope I helped you.

How do i fix a heating element on my electric cooktop


Most top elements are just a plug in.. find where the element joins the body of the stove and firmly pull on the element straight back from that point. MAKE SURE THE POWER TO THE STOVE IS TURNED OFF AT THE BREAKER

Which element is it? Try to switch the infinite switch from another element. This will tell you if it is the element or the switch problem.

Dual element burner on glasstop range...inner element stays on


It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.

I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.

Hope this helps.

Kenmore Elite 790 Range


I can't believe I found this today. Today, my Elite 790 inner coil also stopped working! A little too coincidental.

When I turn on the burner, I can hear like a relay click on, but it does not heat. The middle and outer burners are fine.
