Question about Kenmore 96412 / 96414 / 96419 Electric Kitchen Range
On the left hand side of the stove, the "element on' light not shut off. When I try to turn on the burner, it comes on immediately. Is there a short circuit somewhere? Is it safe to use? It is a Sears Kenmore Electric Range Model No. 790.9013. And the last four digits are the color number. It was purchased in 2007.
The element on indicator is typically controlled by the infinite switch (the temperature control) for the element.

You either have a short in your electronic ignition or the ignition board is defective. Check the wiring to the ignition board for shorts. also check and make sure you ignitors are well grounded.

check inside the stove for some kind of fuse , also check with a multimeter set to OHMS the circuit breaker of the stove to see if theres continuity . hope it helps

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.

If unplugging it for a couple minutes and plugging back in does not rectify then it sounds like a bad spark module or a shorted wire inside. All 4 should spark at the same time when any burner is used. (Does trying to light a burner make the other 2 spark too?)
