Question about Kenmore 96422 / 96424 / 96429 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Kenmore 790.9641240, while using stove top power burner (front left) a loud pop was heard and I thought I saw a blue flash (like an arc) above the pan, the next day received a slight electrical tingle after turning plastic switch ON for right front burner, and again a loud pop (no apparent arc). Secured circuit breaker, opened the top backplane of the stove and found charring on the Simmer Select (P/N 316429301) and Cooktop Lockout (P/N 3164181__). Checked for grounds, by jumpering neutral and hot lead, measuring continuity w/multimeter across jumpered leads and return lead, and cycling stovetop switches to ON/OFF position. No measurable continuty was read. Ordered new Simmer Select and Cooktop Lockout boards. Is there anything else I should check before or after installing new boards?

    I also replaced the Cooktop Lockout (P/N 3164181__) board. It is right next to the Simmer Select board. I ended up buying the parts fromhttp://www.appliancepartspros.com/ AP3768449 (316418101) Cooktop Lockout $79.35 and AP3837345 (316429301) Simmer Select $25.65, and shipping cost me $12.95. This appears to have fixed all my problems with one minor exception, the Element On light. I believe the Element On light ties into the front control panel. Not wanting to spend another couple of hundred dollars I disconnected one of two wires to the light, and taped the disconnected connector with electrical tape.

    Good luck.

    I am having the same problem with my simmer select. I just replaced my simmer select board and now it seems I have no power to that burner. Have you come up with any solution? Thanks, Tom

Tom (Tchange): I also had arc/pop/short of SSB like g_royer. This was preceded over a few days by the Element ON indicator always ON (with all surface select switches OFF). I found the arc marks and burns on the SSB and replaced it. Element ON indicator went OUT, but like you, element no longer heats. I just checked continuity for each of the relays on the Lockout Board. In spite of the error designation on the Wiring Diagram (swapping P3 with P6), I found an OPEN relay for that element. Now to order the Lockout Board, just like g_royer.

    I'm having the same issue, but with a new SSB and Lockout Board, the element still doesn't work. Tried new element, no luck. Simmer select just clicks on and off, and the cooktop lockout also clicks on and off, allowing working burners to heat on and off about once every second or two. Also replaced main control board as this was suggested if the F40 lockout error returned after replacing the lockout control board. Does not make sense.

Pop heard yesterday by front right burner, everything turned off. Breaker not cut out but reset nothing turns on


There may be an internal fuse, or what you heard was the power supply connection burning apart, So now no power to the stove or stove top. Of course turn breaker off. before digging into dangerous territory.

The electric panel on my smooth top stove just went out with a popping sound rendering the oven unusable but the stove top burners are working.............what could have happened and is it worth it to get...


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good "blue" arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Frigidaire gallery stove, oven not working,


Morison,
The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I was preheating our electric oven, heard a very loud bang/pop. Checked and the oven had PF (power failure) I went downstairs and the breaker was tripped. Came back upstairs and to look at stove, the burners are working fine so I continued to preheat oven after a half an hour the oven was only slightly warm. Did you ever find out what was wrong?

My question concerns a Kenmore glasstop electric oven (model #790.95200100). While operating the oven at 450 degrees and the back right burner at level 5, I heard an audible "pop" and saw a flash of light...


After letting the stove cool, I pulled the entire unit out from the wall and discovered scorch marks on the wall. Opening the back panel revealed a simple fix: the "element on" light module had shorted and was visibly scorched and melted. Looks like a simple replacement (and some wire stripping where the leads fused). Stove currently works with the affected wires capped off (while I await a replacement module).

The recepticle that the burner ends plug into get worn and loose. This will cause arching and that may be what she saw. OR, there could be a wire loose under the stove top feeding the burner. Lift it up and give it a good inspection (with the breaker off). You may need to replace the burner recepticle.

Stove cutoff after loud popping sound


The element burnt in to and arced which is the loud noice you heard red flash of light. It probably tripped the breaker at the electrical panel. Don't turn it back on until someone checks the element and replaces it.

Microwave made loud popping sound and now does not heat.


Hey,
Try this
Probably a high voltage diode popped because contaminated grease eventually built up and made a path for a high voltsge arc to occur.. To confirm,take the outer cover off the microwave and discharge the high voltage capacitor by shorting its terminals. Then pull the plug off the magnetron side and place it near the magnetron socket. Now turn the microwave on and push the connector on the magnetron with a chopstick or a long insulated screwdriver. If no arc when you do this this confirms a bad diode.



please rate my suggestion..
