SOURCE: Dual cooking zone burner not working

Okay...what you have is a dual element with the 6 inch coil burned out. Yes, this is repairable, but unfortunately, since this is a dual element, it is sold as one assembly. The part number for a replacement is WB30T10044, and you can find it at repairclinic.com for about $90 (repairclinic item number 824238). I know it isn't cheap, but it beats having to pay for a service call, or buying a new appliance.

If you wish to repair this yourself, you can do so by following these steps:

1. UNPLUG the range before servicing. There are dangerous voltages still present even with burners turned off.
2. There are a few screws located under the front edge of the cook top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Remove these screws and the top should lift up. If the range is not equipped with any kind of hinge supports, the top will have to be propped up.
3.On some ranges, there is a disconnect plug for the surface element wiring harness. If you have this feature, unplug the wire harness from the connector and follow these steps:

a. Unplug the cook top and leave the elements in place.
b. Place the whole cook top assembly face-down on a soft surface (like some old towels, or a blanket).
c. Remove the affected surface element. Take note of the numbered positions where the mounting screws are located and locations of the wires. You may want to write down the numbered positions and the wire color codes. HINT: A good digital camera can save you time if you have one. You will need to install the new element in the same manner.
d. Install new element (upside down). Handle the surface elements with care. They are very fragile. Care also must be taken not to handle the element coils or ceramic material. Try to handle from the underside of the element only. Oil from your hands can cause damage to the element and/or premature failure.
e. Re-install the cook top back on the range and you are DONE.

NOTE: If your range does NOT have a disconnect plug on the wiring harness you will need to perform the repairs with the cooktop propped up, and install the surface element assembly from underneath. A helpful hint: Use some duct tape to hold the element secure until you have it screwed back into place. Don't forget to remove the duct tape when completed. Once completed, lower the cook top and secure with screws.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have require additional assistance.

SOURCE: Dual element burner on glasstop range...inner element stays on

It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.

I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: The oven heating element won't turn off

I would thing if you called an appliance service store or retailer and gave them the make and model number of the stove they can sell you one and maybe install it if you need them to but I would thing it would be called the oven switch

I need a parts diagram to replace the right front surface heating element of a Kenmore range, Model 629-45775


Does the element have continuity? if so, it will be the element switch that needs replacement... Generally, the radiant element will be held on by two screws and a steel plate, note the wiring before removing the old part. Definitely remove power to the machine before doing anything inside of it... Kenmore Range Stove Oven Surface Element Switch WP7403P239 60

Kenmore 790.9641* free-standing electric range: The "single" (inner) part of the dual radiant element is not working. When the knob is turned to the single side, the ELEMENT ON indicator lights, but


The inner ring or center part of the element is burned out. You will need to replace the entire element, as it is not possible to replace just part of it.

F1 keeps flashing, top elements work but oven doesn't. What part do i need to replace? I have kenmore electric range


Hello,

The F1 error code means that the computer thinks a button on the touchpad is stuck. Sometimes this can be resolved by making sure the touchpad connector fits tight into the control board. The F1 code can be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF. If it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced . Gene

LG range cooktop


Open the door and just under the front lip of the top there are a few screws that secure it to the body. Then you have to pull the maintop towards you. Its secured by two clips at the back.
