It could be the switch itself or some stoves have a relay board that controls the burners. The problem could be here. You would have to check either the continuity of the switch or check for power to the center burner. You would need a volt meter and take caution as there will be potentally lethal voltage at the terminals. If you are not confortable with these diagnostic methods I suggest consulting a licensed technician.

SOURCE: Gemini Range Dual Burner

Unfortunately, you cannot repair one element of a dual burner. It all comes as one unit. When one portion of a dual or triple element goes bad, you must replace the whole element. I believe the part number is 1032746 and runs about $70. You will have to lift the glass top to access the burner elements. If you decide to pursue this on your own follow these steps: 1. Unplug range and/or turn off main breaker. 2. Open oven door to access screws under front edge of cooktop. Remove two screws and the top should tilt up. 3. The top will not stay up on it's own, so you will need some assistance holding it up. Some ranges have a couple of disconnect plugs that you can unplug, so you remove the entire top and lay it somewhere to work on. If this is the case with yours (as I suspect it is), lay some soft towels down on the kitchen table or counter top and lay the cooktop upside down. This will make it much easier to work on. 4. Remove affected element by disconnecting the wires first. You may want to write down how they came off, so you can be sure to reconnect them in the right order. 5. Remove mounting brackets holding element in place. Pay particular attention to the numbering scheme on the bottom of the element and where the brackets are mounted. The new element usually doesn't come with new brackets which means you have to take the brackets off the old element and put them on the new element. Make sure you install them in the same numbered holes as they were located before. 6. Reconnect wires and reinstall cooktop, making sure you reconnect the disconnect plugs if equipped. Now, be careful when working on the cooktop while it is upside down. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure on the glass or you could crack it. Also, use extreme care NOT to touch the element surface as the oils from you hands can cause hot spots and effectively ruin it. The bake light material in which the element is mounted is also very fragile. DO NOT put to much pressure on it or it may crack and break. Once you get the cooktop reinstalled and power reapplied, op test it to make sure BOTH elements are working. It is normal to see a little bit of sparking at first with new elements and/or an odor. Test the entire range of the element and make sure it regulates like it should. I hope this helps you.

SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY HAVE A WIRE BURNED. CAN YOU USE A MUTIMETER?

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.

HOW TO REMOVE THE GLASS TOP OF THE KENMORE ELITE ELECTRIC OVEN MODEL 790-9912?


There are usually screws under the front that will allow you to open the top. Make sure you have the power off. If the screws are not there. there may be clips that will need to be pushed in. A putty knife will work well for this.

I have a Jenn Air Electric stovetop with a glass top (Black) model # FCE 30600A One of the burners is nor working. Can I remove that glass top and repl;ace the burner?


Yes you can, at least I removed mine on a Kenmore. Be very careful as the burners are very delicate and even more so after they have aged.Look under the edge at the front for 3 screws. The top should pull out slightly and lift.

Corning smoothtop electric range


You MUST use flat bottom pans on three of the four burners, the back right burner is the multi-pan burner and accepts any type pan. You'll notice the other burners have a circle in the center, that is the thermostat that reads the temp of the pan, that burner type needs the flat bottom pan to work correctly. The multi-pan has no thermostat and it will boil water in any pan.

Good luck
