Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens
I am trying to replace my ceran glass maintop. This is a Kenmore range part # 316282939. I found instructions and it says to remove the screw that secures the green ground wire to the range. Then remove the screw next to it securing the wiring harness strap. I don't see any green ground wire? So I am stuck not able to remove this maintop. Can you help?
Actually if you've removed the 2 or 3 screws at the front (underside) of the cooktop, you can lift up the front. Prop it up with a board, and then remove the 4 screws that hold the 2 brackets that hold the 4 elements to the cooktop. Now pull the cooktop forward a bit, and you should see a green ground wire attached to the back of the cooktop. If not, then don't worry about it! Just pull that cooktop up and off the range. You will need to transfer the 2 tabs in the back of the cooktop, and the silver steel bar located at the front of the top to the new cooktop. Then reverse the process to install the new cooktop and re-fasten the elements to it.

A family member removed it while I was away. Returned home a short time later & it was outside under the C/P. Thanks anyway.

SOURCE: Would this work or burn
This should work just fine as long as the breaker it is going to is at least 20 amps as this is the amount of amps that both fans would be drawing at once if the were both on. The 12/2 wire should be plenty to supply the 20 amps needed for the fans.

Are you trying to connect your range to a 3-wire source, using a 4-wire cord? I'm a little confused on your symptoms. Normally you have a 2 HOT leads and a NEUTRAL/GROUND (3-wire) in older homes. In newer homes you have 2 HOT leads, a separate NEUTRAL and a separate GROUND (4-wire).
The following link explains the difference between the two configurations and how they should be correctly wired:
New construction homes built after the year 2000 REQUIRE the use of a 4-wire plug and are usually readily wired at the receptacle to accommodate. If your existing receptacle already has a 3-wire configuration you do not need to re-wire it, however. The easiest solution would be to purchase a 3-wire power cord that matches the receptacle you have.
Read through the link provided and post back and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

Turns out one of the unique problems with your type of ignition system is that the spark module is susceptible to noise on the electrical line.
According to the manufacturer Service pointer, the solution to this problem is to install the ferrite bead kit to reduce line interference (electrical noise) from the direct spark ignition module.
You should also make sure there is nothing wrong with the wall outlet and the circuit breaker for the range,
