On this model (with the glass touch controls, right?), it is usually caused by a bad, sticking relay on the relay board, located on the back side of the oven, down near the bottom. Some of these models had a safety recall... You might want to check to see if yours is one of the affected models. (The model number you gave is not complete; find the complete model # & serial # on the range itself, usually on the range frame, visible when you open the drawer or open the door.

Where are the fuses for the Sears Kenmore stove to elements located on Model C880 675080L0


Most likely no fuses. Either the element or the switch that turns it on is bad. If lighat comes on when you turn on burner the switch is probably ok and the burner went bad.

Been posting for days! Kenmore Elite Range throwing eo11 code..Need fix!


What is the model number?
You have a problem with the control panel or the user interface control board that is causing this problem. You can unplug the range and check the wiring connections in the console. There are not any tests available to clearly diagnose the cause of this failure.

Frigidaire model FEC30S6ABF front burner wont turn off


Hi - From what you have described the range could possibly be experiencing a faulty element/sensor or the communication to the element from the control board is now compromised. If you are referring to the left front element, the part number is 318178110/MSRP: $65.86. Right front element, part number 316224201/MSRP: $89.60. I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately and properly diagnose the range.

My right front burner wont turn off. My dad checked the control knob and it seems to be working. He unplugged it from the front burner and put it on the back to see if it did the same thing and it did. ...


with a model number to know exactly how power is supplied to the surface burners its going to be hard to let ya know anything definate...but do ya have knobs that ya turn to turn on the surface burners? if yes knobs..their will be terminals on the switch marked L1/L2 on those 240vac should be there all the time when turning the knob onto high on terminals marked H1&H2 should be 240vac to the burner

if it has the touch button to turn on the surface burners 240 vac into board all the time ..4 individual outbound power places (one for each burner) and the one for that burner also should have 240 vac when set to high

in either case if 240 vac out to burner the burner is bad
if 240vac into switch/board and not out..switch/board bad

I have a kenmore elite range model number 790 46809 991 and the burner on both the left and right are acting up. They both show that a burner is on on the control panel (not surface indicator) and the...


Hello gralexander,

The problem you are experencing is with you control switches. The cheapest place i can find the switch is from searsparts direct. Here is a link to the webpage http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-79046809991/0583/0124160/P0050380/00001?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=79046809991

You will see a diagram in the top left side of the page use it to locate the switches that are bad and order them from sears. You may also need the burners to check them you need a continutity tester.

1. Remove the burner from the socket
2. Take your test and touch one probe to each side of the burner.
3. If you have continunity then the burners are good
4. If not you will have to order burners as well.


Changing the switches:

1. Unplug the range
2. Remove the back panel where the switches are.
3. Remove the knob from the front
4. Remove the screws from the switch you are replacing (Due one at a time)
5. Move the wires from the switch to the corresponding terminal on the new switch
6. Replace the switch and screw in place
7. Do the other switch
8. Reinstall the cover on the back of the unit
9. Plug in and try

Doing all of the above steps should fix the problem that you are having. Please make sure that you install L1 to L1 and L2 to L2 on the new switch other wise you will cross wire it and the rest of the switches will short and need to be replaced.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com. If you have any other questions please post back to this thread and I will do my best to help you with your Range problem
