Re: Kenmore electric range cook top and oven not working
Probably had something short out and possibly ruined one or more components too. Unless you are electrically inclined I would call the repair man. 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

If it is an electric stove it may have tripped one side of the 230 line. Check the house cuircuit breaker panel and find the stove circuit breaker. It will be tied together by a bar or clip. Shut off both breakers completly and reset them back completely. If it is a power problem this should reset the stove.
I understand that you are having a problem with your electric range. You state that as you turn more elements on the stovee on (ie. the burners and oven) the breaker will trip. Have you had any service done to the range before the problem started occuring?
This sounds like you have a problem with your breaker. As a breaker is tripped it will get weak as many times as your breaker has tripped I would replace it. You also need to verify that you are using atleast a 50 amp breaker. You will need to purchase the same type of breaker as you have (ie. Cuttler Hammer, GE, Square D, etc.). You will need a two pole 50 amp breaker. Follow the below dirrections to change the breaker.
1. Turn off the main breaker.
2. Verify that all electicity is off by checking electric in the house of building (everything should be off, not working)
3. Remove cover panel screws
4.. Lossen the screws on the two wires that are attached to the breaker
5. Remove the wires
6. Remove the breaker
7. Install the new breaker
8. Insert one wire under each screw
9. Reinstall cover panel
10. Turn main breaker on
11. Turn on oven breaker
Once the oven breaker is on check to see if all elements and oven will work at the same time. If the breaker trips. We will have to walk thru some more trouble shooting steps. However, I do believe that this will solve your problem.
Thank you for chossing FixYa.com please post any other questions that you may have about you appliances
We have the same model. It just did that today, tripped the 50A breaker for the oven and the 100A breaker for the house. The part that failed is on the back of the clock. remove the panel from the top of the back, there are several relays on the board, the large relay on mine had some black discoloration around it. If you remove the two boards from the housing you can see where where L1 and L2 shorted together. The part number for the board is 316207529. New board $132-$169 Rebuilt board on ebay $95
First of all, did you disconnect your Range prior to working on it. This is something that should be a priority when working on your range. Or, you can shut off the breaker, which is located in your house electrical panel. It's most likely a 50amp 2 pole breaker, and could also be in a sub - panel in some houses. Check this out first before continuing. And, if it is tripped, turn the breaker to the off position and leave it off until you replace your heating element. Once completed, then you can turn it back on. Try this, and if it works - great! If not, will try something else.
Yes. The elements are individually replaceable. Depending on the element, the small one P/N is WB30X342,
the large element P/N is WB30X348.
Unplug the cook-top or turn the breakers off. Pull the burner out horizontally and upward to expose the screw connectors. Unfasten the wires, remove the element, place new element in place, conect the wires, and reinstall.
