    By iappropriate, I ment that the repair suggestion did not work. I appologize if it ment something else.



    I exchanged the swithes with no effect. I then exchanged the the part suggested with no effect. The burner continues to stay on and not turn off even thoughthe swtch is turned off.



    I did not exchnage the burner because there is no other burner like that on the stove.

    Is there a way to test this power board, before ordering, to confrim that it needs replaced?



    Can you switch the connection for the burners to see if the broken one works and the the ones that are working, do not work?

.. i see 2 problems here one is the guy doesnt know how to explain anything. that is happening.. because if he changed the infinate switch with no change and he changed the burner and now it works then obviously it is the burner.. if he changed the switch and it fixed the problem then it was the switch... Now the solution givin here is a very good solution.. it would explain why a burner and a switch being changed would have no effect.. So the guy with the problem should not come back to fixya if he doesnt understand what is being explained to him.. if he needs more info then he should ask. so go ahead and give me an inappropriate rating if you wish.

    The problem is going to be in one of your power boards.. There should be one board that controls the top however there is also another board behind the range at the bottom on the left that also controls the elements. It is very hard to explain the exact operation with someone who is not familiar with it. However part 316239403 is a power board that also supplies the burners.. I know that if you replaced the previosly mentioned part and changed out the switch you should not have your problem anymore.. The only things that turn your elements on are the power boards and the infinate switch. Any other problem would not allow the burner to turn on.

    An inappropriate rating means that we are being rude and no help. Thanks for trying means that the solution provided did not work. Helpful means that the situation got better and fixya is that the solution fixed your problem.

Please confirm your model number. If 79099012102 is the correct model number, there is a POWER RELAY BOARD located on the back of the unit behind the bottom metal panel. 316239403 is the part number if your model number matches the one listed in my response. If it is different, than my part number will not be correct.

I have a kenmore stove model number 790,72403012 and 3 of the 4 burners are working. They all are getting a spark, but the front left won't fire up.


First, try to light the burner in question with a match. Just hold a match to the burner, then turn the gas on to low. If the burner doesn`t light, the problem is the gas supply to the burner. Next, lift the top cover and put the prop rod in the hole in the cover to support it. Hold a match to the left-front burner. Now, turn the control knob to "light". You should see the igniter spark and hear a snap. If this doesn`t happen, repeat this step with the left rear burner. If you hear the spark and snap.
If the igniter doesn`t work on the front left burner, but does on the rear left burner, the igniter does work. The problem is likely the control knob for the left front burner. The. Control knob includes the electrical switch the activates the igniter when you turn on that burner.

Low flame on left front burners high flame onright front burnners


That is food/grease buildup. Clean the holes. TURN OFF GAS to stove, then just clean the holes in the burners with a soft wire brush. Then turn gas back on and immediately relight pilot lights. If that sounds scary, call your gas company, they might come out and help.

Sears Kenmore gas stove, the front left and the left and right rear burners turn on when the knob is turned to the lite position. The right front burner doesn't turn on when put lite position. N


If there is no clicking sound like you hear when you turn on the other burners than I'm going to say that either the electrode is bad or the spark switch, which is what you turn to turn on the burner to begin with. Both parts are cheap so it may be a good maintenance thing to change all of the burners. Make sure you have your model and go to www.repairclinic.com and order both parts, and if you don't need one send it back for a full refund even if you installed it. good luck

My right front burner wont turn off. My dad checked the control knob and it seems to be working. He unplugged it from the front burner and put it on the back to see if it did the same thing and it did. ...


with a model number to know exactly how power is supplied to the surface burners its going to be hard to let ya know anything definate...but do ya have knobs that ya turn to turn on the surface burners? if yes knobs..their will be terminals on the switch marked L1/L2 on those 240vac should be there all the time when turning the knob onto high on terminals marked H1&H2 should be 240vac to the burner

if it has the touch button to turn on the surface burners 240 vac into board all the time ..4 individual outbound power places (one for each burner) and the one for that burner also should have 240 vac when set to high

in either case if 240 vac out to burner the burner is bad
if 240vac into switch/board and not out..switch/board bad

Hi,

You are correct, on most Kitchen Aid units the switches come as an assembly of all 4 with the wiring, I would have to have your exact model number to be sure but most often you cannot replace just the one switch.

The electronic ignitor on front right burner no longer works.


All ignitors should fire regardless of which burner is turned on. See if the right front will light up if you turn on another burner or look for a spark. If not, the ignitor is probably fouled and needs a good cleaning. If the right front burner will spark or ignite when a different burner is turned on, it is the right front control switch - not an easy fix. When cleaning the cook top, if you remove the knobs, any liquid that gets into the switches will short them out. Found that out the hard way.

My whirlpool range ss630per-1 burners will ignite except of front right which give no ignitor sound at all, but the Rear Right works fine. any solutions?


Each burner control knob has a built-in switch that controls the igniter. It appears the front right burner switch in the knob is possibly defective. They are replaceable but it requires dis-assembly of the range front. Are all the igniters in a sequence? Have you tried turning the front right burner on while another burner has the igniter on. This may let you ignite the burner automatically. When you have another burner igniter clicking try turning on that burner. If the range has rectification igniters that will not work.

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.
