When you set a cook top burner to high then it should stay on until the "thermal" limit shuts it off. then the burner will stop glowing. if you dont put a burner on the top, the burner sensor will shut of on the thermal safety.
it is normal but what you need to check is if you pans are flat on the bottom. a bow inwards or outwards will cause the thermal to shut the burner off. the pan needs to "draw" the heat out of the top and allow the burner to operate properly.
most of the time the pans a warped causing the burner to cycle on the limit and then not heat as well as it could with a "flat pan"

How do I properly operate the Turbo Boil on my new Kenmore range?


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.

I have a very old Tappan electric cooktop 13-3087-10 with solid burners. One burner has a round button in the middle that has become rusted "pushed in". What is the purpose of the button?


This is the temperature sensor. This one burner has a knob with different numbers on it because its heat is controled by a thermostat and not just by varying the current, as are the other burnser.

Frigidaire Oven surface light stays ''on'' even when cooktop off


I unplugged the stove, un plugged all the burners cleaned them, put them back on plugged the stove back in and the light went out, something to do with unplugging it I think. reset it or something.

The oven will not light when turned on.


When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven will not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve will not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve
-- defective gas valve coils

Oven heats very slowly (Jenn-Air JGS9900BDS). Cooktop works fine. Broiler works. No error codes.


hi, Could be a bad bake element or a bad temperature sensor. If the element will glow bright red/orange with no hotspots it is OK. Take a volt/ohm meter set for ohms and check the temp sensor. If less than 1050 ohms replace it.

Burners overheat


The burner control is failing for each burner. That model takes part #316021500 for the 6" units and part #5303935086 for the 8" unit.
This must be an older range, as Frigidaire lists the 6" switch and no longer in production. You can replace a 6" control with an 8" but not the other way around...

Hope this helps. Please rate my answer if this is the case.

Burner will not turn off


You'll need to replace the burner switch. This happens when the contacts become fused together.
