Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have C970-440934 Kenmore range. Couple of days ago, front left burner started turning ON/OFF every few secs even at HI temp setting clearly not heating up to the temp it should be.

Yesterday it all started with different issue. as soon as I start front left it goes to red HOT ON..wont turn OFF even it wont allow me to turn off completely from the on/off button. I had to remove the elect plug from socket to deactivate. When activating all burners were showing PF error..I reset all by pressing ON/OFF button but same issue again, left front burner turn ON..Red hot seems temp control switch not working? burner seems okay as you can see the whole coil red hot..can you please advice ASAP which part needs to be check/replace and how? Also, where can I find out the part? thanks.Looking for quick answer.

Will not fully heat to temp setting; takes 2 min B4 gas ignition 2 heat.

Time for the gas valve to open fully can be a few minutes, I've seen them take up to 3 minutes to open, so its not unusual. Hoverer, the temp issue may be due to your burner's gas jets being clogged with ash, etc. Remove the burner and inspect, the holes or jets should be nice and clear, any clogged ones need to be opened use a safety pin or something similar to open, try no to make the hole any bigger then it is. You may also find it may light quicker since there will be less back pressure in the line once the jets are cleaned.

Low flame on left front burners high flame onright front burnners

That is food/grease buildup. Clean the holes. TURN OFF GAS to stove, then just clean the holes in the burners with a soft wire brush. Then turn gas back on and immediately relight pilot lights. If that sounds scary, call your gas company, they might come out and help.

The panel could have been defective at the time of purchase. After 6-7 years, there may not even be a replacement available but you can check with an appliance parts supplier to find out.

I have a Beaumark Electric range about 8 years old, The right front burner comes on high as soon as it is turned on, even if I turn it to low it remains on very, very high and burns everything. Why

The burner is not controlled and so it is possible that there is no control on the heating coils.The thermostat settings must be checked as this can be an area where the coils are not controlled for the heat set but goes to the highest level.You will need to remove the unit to check the control action of the controller, check the thermostat and sensor.

Burner temperature is always on high heat even at low setting

not related any further then sounds as if you have 2 burner switches gone bad,and actually the front right burner is controlled by a electronic control circuit board part retails for about $160-$200 part number 12002723, and left rear switch about $30 part number 74007841 . uint needs to be uninstalled from counter and parts changed by removing the bottom panel
