Gas burners go out

Kenmore elite dual fuel range C970 burners spontaneously go out while cooking. All of the burners do this at all settings below medium but only intermittently. We have adjusted the gas flow several times, changed the regulator and computer control pad, blew out gas line coming into stove, had gas company out twice to check gas line and regulator on gas meter. Everything seems to be ok but the burners still go out on their own. What else can we try?

    Hi Cherie Reglin, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Is there any sort of a draft that could get to the stove? Ceiling fan, close heating/air conditioning vent, window or door that gets opened frequently?

    No drafts, not from windows or ceiling fans etc. problem occurs in summer (when windows are open constantly), winter (window never open) and all year long. The burners stay on and work normally +/-70% of the time. It seems that when the outdoor air pressure drops (due to weather fluctuations) the burners go out...

SOURCE: viking range - gas flame on one burner does not change

It sounds like the repair man was correct. The only variable is the valve, if the rest of the burners are fine then it will be the valve

SOURCE: i have a kenmore elite slide in range. we notice the smell of gas

Hi,

There could be a couple things that would cause your symptoms, I will do my best to try and explain each one.

First off I am assuming from your dialog that everything is cooking the same on the top and in the oven, the times are the same the flames on the top burners look or sound no different. If this is the case the repair outside would not have a direct bearing on a 'problem' but it could cause the odor. Here is why...

Natural gas has no odor a chemical called Mercaptan is added to the gas to make a leak easier to detect. The amount of Mercaptan is regulated closely so it all is consumed in the flame. If there is too much you will get an odor from the flame.

The Mercaptan can line the inside of the piping that feeds gas from the regulator to the range. Working on the pipes can break loose some residue that may have a stronger presence of odorant causing you to smell it for some time. It will eventually go away.

The second thing that could cause this odor is if you have done any remodeling in the home, paint fumes, stains, oils many other chemicals can mix with the gas and cause this Mercaptan to not be burned up all the way and create an odor.

I hope this helps

I continue to get code F11 on my Kenmore Elite Gas Range Oven and therefore, I am unable to unlock / open my oven door. I have pressed and held down the STOP button as well as the oven light button.


Your model number should be much longer than 790 30 Open drawers and doors to look for the whole model number around the frame.

With the whole model number you can get more information at Sears Parts Direct. There are parts diagrams and user manuals and you can order parts.
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/



This site gives instructions for repairing F11 and recommends checking the temperature probe and tells how to do it.

It could possibly be you are not getting 240 volts to the range. The top igniter may be getting a current back through the other side of the 240 circuit and that is why it works when the oven is turned on but the oven will not be getting power to heat. Have the 240 circuit checked or make sure the circuit breakers are reset correctly.
