Kenmore Elite, electric cooktop, Model # 790-41273000, Front right burner. what does it look like when fuctioning correctly. Mine is new and it is not clear to me if the burner is fully functioning.

Right front burner is considered a turbo burner. Perhaps it looks differennt then the other three burners which light up in a full circle. ???

SOURCE: Stove burner igniter does not work.

Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.

What holds the spring assembly onto the bar assembly is just two small prongs. Use a pliers on the end that protrudes through the bar, squeezing the prongs together, and it should come out fairly easily.

SOURCE: kenmore glass top range left front large burner out

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.

It appears your Ignitor has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.
