Sears glass top range problem -790.95751990

Hello sir:

I recently replaced the 6" right front heating element on my Sears 790.95751990 glass-top stove. The element comes on and heats up but now has only one setting: high. I can't vary the setting from low to high. Do you have any suggestions for how to fix? I suspect the switch may be broken.

Thank you for any help you can offer. And Happy New Year!

    After waiting 15 days for a response I finally solved it myself. Problem was with the (infinite) switch. Replaced it and everything is fine. Easy procedure - just remember to label everything as you go along. Hint: take a digital picture of switch wiring before you start.

    The small burner on the front left dual burner of our Kenmore glass top stove model 790-96324403 does not work. When turning on the dual, only the "rings" around the small element comes on. I would appreciate it if someone could tell me how to replace the element. Also, Is it possible that the problem could be with a switch or something else? Thanks a lot for your help.

Will just replacing the oven element fix my Kenmore model 911.955879range oven? It sparked, broke in two and a white flame continued going around the element, wouldn't stop I had to shut breaker off.


Hello Jennifer;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Good for you - turning off the breaker.

You have a older oven. Usually there is a spark or crack in the oven element. In your case the element was so embrittled it broke into 2 pieces.

Before you use the top range burners to be on the safe side you need to disconnect the oven element. You may have damaged the oven control board to where it is locked into power for the oven.

25713262-01ium3bsyoj5ql4fhv4kpwvp-4-0.jpg 1.) Remove the bottom drawer to reduce weight.
2.) Put a rug on the floor in front of the oven, so when you pull the oven out it does not scratch the floor.
3.) Pull the oven out so you can get behind it.
4.) Unplug the unit.
5.) Remove the back bottom cover.
6.) Disconnect the heating element and remove from oven.
7.) Rap the two loose element connections in the back with electrical tape.
8.) Follow the element loose connection to the control board at the top. Disconnect at the oven control board.
9.) Inspect the loose wiring from the control board to the heating element for burns or melting.
10.) Plug the oven back in and turn on the range burners.

The part number for the oven element is WB44T10014. Sears wants about $95.00 for this part. Search the internet for this part number and get it for about $28.00.

Your oven control board may have become damaged. Recently I replace one for a friend. Sears wanted $256.00. I got a remanufactured board over the internet for $30.00.

Get back to me and let me know what is going on.

Where are the fuses for the Sears Kenmore stove to elements located on Model C880 675080L0


Most likely no fuses. Either the element or the switch that turns it on is bad. If lighat comes on when you turn on burner the switch is probably ok and the burner went bad.

Can you replace a Maytag smooth top on a slide in range?


Yes it is replaceable but expensive. Approx $334 plus shipping at sears. The glass top unbolts at the front then lifts off at rear but all the burners must be removed and mounted to the new top.

Where can i buy replacement glass top hot point cook top electric stove


Are you sure you put the right model number in? The RB526 doesn't have a glass top! Suggest you find the equipment id tag on your stove and then go to searspartsdirect.com and plug in the model number and search for the part you want.

NOTE: Sears is not usually the lowest priced place to buy from, BUT they use the real part number that you can do a search on to find a lower price. But since it is a glass cook top, sears has the in store delivery and pick up so that you can inspect for cracks and chips before accepting it.

The right front element will not heat properly on my Frigidaire electric stove. If you turn the knob to a low number it barely heats. It is very frustrating because you cannot keep something warm or cook...


Without a proper model number I would say you need to replace the element or the infinite switch for the element. Best off to call a reliable repair company such as Sears.

Kenmore flat top range front burner popped and now doesn't heat.


Assuming the other other elements work....

Write down the entire model number and call a local Sears parts store if there is one near you. They should give you the option of having the parts shipped or picking it up.

To change the element:

Unplug/turn power off to your range first.

Look under the front lip you should see between 2-4 screws. Remove the screws and then the glasstop will lift up. You might need some help to hold it up while you remove the front support bracket.
Once you have that bracket removed from the glasstop, you can change the bad element.

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.

I need to replace top spiral heating element in the stove Maytag. Where I can buy it?


You can buy it at any local parts store. Or you can go to the sears website and put in your model number under the parts area and pull up the diagram of your stove and order the part directly from sears.

Kenmore smooth top - cooking problems


Smooth tops take a little geting used to than a coil top range....Make sure you have good flat cookware. NO GLASS COOKWARE. (ie vision ware.) Once the burner is set to high, it has to heat the glass, then the pot, so it does take about 2 min loger to boil, If you want to simmer, then i suggest bringing the item to a rapid boil, and then cutting back the heat to below the 1 on the range. and adjusting from there. All smooth top glass ranges do work in this manner. Most people can adjust to the switch, but not everyone can. there really is no problem with your range. BTW i work at sears, and i am surprised that no one helped you.
