If unplugging it for a couple minutes and plugging back in does not rectify then it sounds like a bad spark module or a shorted wire inside. All 4 should spark at the same time when any burner is used. (Does trying to light a burner make the other 2 spark too?)

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore elite bottom freezer model. The

The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace the blade. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged and rubbing against it. Check the rear condenser fan as well for faults. It is possible that the noise is coming from the motor itself. If that is the case, you will need to replace the affected motor.

In this model the clicker keeps working if you keep the Knob on Lite so make sure it's not there first.
The clicker is electrically triggered: when you turn one of the gas buttons a small contact situated on it is activated - this button powers the clicker module, starting it up. In your case the contact on the last burner that you used has failed - it happens on brand new appliances. It has been badly assembled in the factory and now it has become stuck closed, keeping the clicker functioning.
All you need to do is to access the switch and disconnect it. Later the switch will have to be replaced.

How do I properly operate the Turbo Boil on my new Kenmore range?


Turboboil is a feature offered on a number of Kenmore electric ranges and cooktops. Without you model number it's hard to get into specifics - but turboboil is a special, high wattage heating element that delivers up to 3KW of energy to a specific heater on the cooktop. If I understand correctly, you would only use this setting when you wish to bring water to a boil in the shortest period of time possible - then change to a normal burner heat setting to maintain the temperature of the water in the pot.

Remember, an electric heat element is turned "full on" and "full off" as needed to maintain temperature (unlike a dimmer knob controls a light bulb). The turbo boil turns on a "double heater" to rapidly heat the water - after water reaches 212 degrees, it can not be heated any further (it turns into steam) so you should switch to a normal burner mode from that point forward.

Kenmore Stove Glass top


Hello,

I have a Kenmore glass stove, not sure what the model number is I don't have it with me right now. Yesterday, the timer started to beep and F1 started to flash in the display. The stove top is working, but the oven does not. The only way I can get the timer to stop beeping is to unplug the stove.

Any suggestions as to what is going on with this stove. It's only 4 years old.

Thanks

Kenmore Elite Gas Stove


Will have to ask some basic questions first.  How old is the stove?  What is the entire model # from the sticker on the unit?  Is this LP or natural gas?  Also, make sure that the orifices in the center of the burners are clean (can use a safety pin or paper clip to poke them a few times to clean).  Make sure that the black caps are on top of the burners and seated properly or they will not lite.  Let me know what you find.

Stove/oven gets hot then shuts off


Shut the breaker off! These are the exact symptoms that a tenant of ours reported for their range. I went to check the range and found that one of the power wires on the terminal block in the back of the range was burning itself up. It had actually started a small wire fire. You need to pull the range out of it's hole and unplug it. Remove the panel in the back above where the cable goes into the range. Examine the power wires and terminal block carefully, because I bet you'll find one of the wires is burning up and needs to be repaired. Please write back and let know what you find.
