I hope some late night folks are out there and can help me. I'd really like to go to sleep. Had a pot boil over (a lot) and the water leaked into the front of the cooktop underneath the control panel. Now, the stupid thing won't stop beeping.
How do I flip open the control panel (which has the burner controls and the touch pad for the oven, etc.) to dry it out. Barring that, any suggestions for drying this out?

Turboboil is a feature offered on a number of Kenmore electric ranges and cooktops. Without you model number it's hard to get into specifics - but turboboil is a special, high wattage heating element that delivers up to 3KW of energy to a specific heater on the cooktop. If I understand correctly, you would only use this setting when you wish to bring water to a boil in the shortest period of time possible - then change to a normal burner heat setting to maintain the temperature of the water in the pot.
Remember, an electric heat element is turned "full on" and "full off" as needed to maintain temperature (unlike a dimmer knob controls a light bulb). The turbo boil turns on a "double heater" to rapidly heat the water - after water reaches 212 degrees, it can not be heated any further (it turns into steam) so you should switch to a normal burner mode from that point forward.
Had the same problem after overusing one of the bigger elements on my bellini induction stove / cooktop to boil copious amounts water. Element eventually stopped working and would just flash power level similar to when it cant recognise an induction pot, but also made a clicking noise over and over. My solution was to turn mains power off at meter box, and back on to reset the stove. When power came back on stove was working again! might have reset some sort of cutout sensor inside stove but cant be certain. Anyway, worked for me so give it a go and see if it helps. good luck.
Hello, Did you clean the cooktop recently? Sometimes water or cleaner can get into the spark switch causing it to spark untill it dries out. The same if a boiling pot spills. If none of those happened one of the burner switches is bad.
This really works well to break down grease. Get a large pot that is ALL Metal! No plastic handles etc. Fill the pot with water and add vinegar. (Two parts water to one part vinegar) Turn the oven as high as it will go and allow the water/vinegar to steam. Keep an eye on the pot as not to boil out all of the water. Repeat as necessary. Hope this helps.
There are lines on the inside of the inner pot that show how much rice and water to put in. It is roughly 1 cup of rice and 2 cups of water. Put this inside the lower pot, put a cup or two of water in the lower pot and get it boiling, then turn it down with just enough heat to keep the water boiling. Just make sure the water doesn't boil away. The rice will be done in about 45 mins. The nice thing about this cooker is that you can't really overcook the rice. It will keep it warm and ready to serve for some time.
water is a great conductor of electricity. It is likely nothing to be concerned about in this case though, if you light the burners and allow the water to burn off/evaporate from the ignitors it should be fine. It happens all the time with gas ranges and cooktops. Once the ignitors are dry they will stop conducting/sparking unwanted.
Hope that helps calm your concern. Thanks for coming to "fixya" for your solution. Please take a second after reading this to rate the info provided to you.
Just fixed this problem and repaired the corner of the Ceran cooktop.
Disclaimer: These cooktops run on 220V and will kill you if you don't know how to work with electricity. If you're unsure, get some help.
The boiling water slopped out of your pot, and went over to your controls (knobs) and went down the shaft and into a component call "Infinity Switch". The water caused the switch internally to weld one of the two internal sets of contact points into a permanent position. The fix is to replace the "Infinity Switch" that the boiling water spilled into. The Infinity switch is the component that the control knob slides on to.
In my cooktop one of the infinity switches failed and appears to damage the adjacent switch. Mine actually caught on fire and damaged the wiring and the connector. Hopefully you are better off. Since they were in such close proximity I replaced them both. For $20 you might consider the same. I replaced both to be safe and they were $21.47 each.
My cooktop has 4 elements 2 small, 1 large and 1 combined (small and large) surface. A large element was definitely damaged and possibly a small element. I ordered both. I mention this in case a multi-element was damaged on your cooktop.
You will need to contact either Jenn-Air or someone. Since you can't see an exploded parts list online, you'll have to use the schematic. It is in a plastic sleeve and it stuck to the side of the ventilator housing underneath the cooktop.
When you wire the new part in, make sure you have the wiring correct or when you turn it back on you will burn up the new part.
as far i know it is normal if u put at high control after a sec,the sencor control is turn off then a sec again it open coz of the sensor, design the sensor for not overheating the hob.it is normal try to position the control in in not a max position.or the pot u use is exactly in the circle or bigger dont put a small one in the bigger hole of ur elctric hob.tnx
