I need a parts diagram to replace the right front surface heating element of a Kenmore range, Model 629-45775


Does the element have continuity? if so, it will be the element switch that needs replacement... Generally, the radiant element will be held on by two screws and a steel plate, note the wiring before removing the old part. Definitely remove power to the machine before doing anything inside of it... Kenmore Range Stove Oven Surface Element Switch WP7403P239 60

Oven will not pre heat


Hello,

Simple to test a bake element or range top burner element.

First, visually see if the element has molten gobs on the tubular-looking element, and/or is cracked. It will be obvious.

And if you do not see anything obvious, you should still test the element with a voltmeter. Many elements are set up so you can unscrew a screw where the element gets attached at the inside rear of the oven, and then pull the element into the stove a couple inches, enough to unhook the wires and then be able to put a voltmeter tester on each end of the element (set to the OHMS setting) to see if the element has continuity.

IF the element is good, then...

...You can also then make sure the wires are not contacting metal(BE SURE OF THIS),... and then plug the stove back in and test the wires to see if you have 220 volts. If not see, which of the two wires has 110. Then if you know which one does not have the 110, then you UNPLUG THE STOVE again and then access the rear of the stove and trace that dead wire from the element plug-in back in the range. You will physically be able to trace that wire.

When working with 220 elements in anything...please realize that usually one leg wire of the 220 volts (in other words, 110 volts) is always 'hot' even though the switch to it is off!! Always remember that!

Fitted new mainoven thermostat to Stoves Newhome built-in oven & grill Model No. 444445062 Serial No.41209452 other data on plate EFa900h need a wiring diagram,couple wires can adrift. Every thing...


I can only speak for the 720. If you want a circuit/wiring diagram for this one, then I need an email address. I will then register this on my BT Digital Vault and you can the download the whole manual.
Looking at the diagrams, the neon for the main oven has white and black wires.
The white wire from the main oven neon goes onto the same connector on the thermostat block as the white wire to the oven element. The black wire from the neon goes to a common terminal on the top oven neon, which then goes onto P6 of the top oven switch (still black wire).
If you need any more info, then let me know.

Front right burner stopped working


Often, this will be due to the element. The easiest way to troubleshoot is take a matching element(if possible) from the other side of the stove top and see if that works in the receptacle.

There should be some letters after the model numbers you listed. The last three letters also lets me know what type of top you have on your stove to guide you through how to access the parts. Make sure you write the full number with all the letters before ordering parts.

If you have the glass top or ceramic model, the connections are different than other types. The manufacturer warns customers and nonservice personnel to never try to lift these cooktops. If you would like to pursue changing or testing this element despite that caution, there is a picture of an element and switch below.

On some flat top models, you need to open or take off the over door before you can lift the top. Most stove tops will then lift off, but you may need to take off a screw or two.

Also, on Canadian models, the front two burners will not operate during oven cleaning mode. If you are a Canadian user, try to reset your burner by turning on and off at the breaker. Canadian users should also make sure that the timer is not set and open the oven door fully to make sure toasting is not engaged.

Porcelain cooktops simply lift from the front and are held open with metal supports. Replacing coil type elements on models with drip bowls (not flat top) is very easy; you simply pull out the element and replace with a new one that can be purchased in large chains and appliance stores.

You should check the receptacle and wiring underneath the stove top for signs of visible dirt, grease or other abnormalities such as burns or frays. Turn off the power, and make sure the wiring plugs are tight.

Make sure the plug in end of the coil element is not burnt or damaged. Check the coil for rough or discolored spots. Follow the wires under the stove top that plug into the coil receptacle to make sure that there are not burnt, frayed or broken areas on the wire coatings.

Testing the element for continuity and possibilities like the receptacle and infinite switch requires special tools. Testing the infinite switch would be extremely dangerous as it is done live with 240 current (unless you live outside the US). If you have testers, you can check the integrity of all of the above.

Another less likely cause for elements not working is the knob that controls the burner being damaged on the inside. You can pull a different knob to see if that works, but this kind of issue is usually obvious because it does not fit snugly and has play when you turn it.

Finally, if you are going to replace the element, or replace the receptacle or switch, make sure that you take the old ones with you with the full model number. Before pulling wires, take a digital picture or mark wires with tape/paint so that you remember how to reconnect.

Check your parts before leaving the store, so that uninformed clerks do not steer you wrong. If you need further info on how to remove and replace the items shown, leave comments. But, take a look under the hood first, because you might be surprised at how simple it all is. I hope this helps

Whirpool electric oven replacing bake element


In addition to what aborcass stated, I just had to fix the same problem. Remeber to turn off the power before you do this. On my stove the element acess is behind the side panel (right side when facing the stove). You remove two screws on the back and one underneath at the bottom, (you need to pull out the drawer). Once screws are out, slide the side panel forward gently about an inch and it should just drop off.
You should see the wires for the element level with the bottom of the stove. The wires will guide you to the element. And you should see that the element is screwed in with two screws to the stove. This is the tricky bit, to remove the element follow the metal piece holding the element to the right until you see a third screw. Remove this screw and the whole thing will come out. Take off the wires, replace the element on the metal strip, slide the element and metal strip back into the stove (take care to ensure the left side of the metal strip slides into the proper position under the metal clasp. Re-attach the screw, plug the wires onto the element and turn the power back on. You should have heat.
Good luck.

Baking element


oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.
