Kenmore flattop stove

The heating elements on my Kenmore flat top stove have quit working. This includes the four elements on top of the stove as well as those in the oven. The circuit breaker for the range has not been triggered.

The clock on the stove and the light in the oven still work.

Thanks for any ideas as to a solution.

What kind of cookware is recommended for glass top stoves

Glass ones work best, but any heavy metal will also work. Heavy gauge not heavy weight. The lighter metal tends to bend and warp after a lot of use. If the bottom of the pans are not absolutely flat, these stoves will not heat the pan very well, which is why the glass cookware is the best to use, since it will not warp.

I replaced what I thought was a bad 9" heating element on my Kenmore glass top stove and the new element still does not work or even attempt to come on. what should I do next?

Did you check if electricity was coming to the element. Try putting a volt meter on the two wires and turn it on see if you get anything...could be a bad switch

Model # 79094320300 the clock and oven does not work on my Kenmove flattop stove, what can I do about it?

The clock runs on 110 volts and the oven at 220 volts. If the cook top is on, the issue is in the stove. Best left to a qualified technician.
If the cooktop is also not functioning, check the breaker.

Boil element caught on fire and melted.

If element caught on fire, I would suspect stove needs cleaning. Do that then elements should not smoke for long. (I hope all moisture was removed from stove!!!)

We have a JennAire model CP220W-C01 cooktop. We use the old coil type heating elements. There was a flash and smoke from the right front element. A repairperson replaced the connector, only to have it blow...

Unplug the element from the receptacle and then disconnect the receptacle from the point where it plugs into the stove. Now, carefully, turn on power to this heating element. If nothing happens then you have removed the likelihood of a problem in the large portion of the stove's wiring. Next, plug the receptacle cable back into the stove without connecting the heating element. Again, carefully turn on the power to the heating element in question. If there is no spark then the cable, connector and receptacle are ok. If it does spark, replace the receptacle and cable assembly. No spark, then inspect the heating element where it connects to the receptacle. Look for melting or signs of damaged insulation that would allow for a "dead short". If you see damage to the element then replace the element. No damage, clean the connections with a toothbrush, and plug the element back in and turn on the juice. If it sparks again, replace the element. Good luck and be careful. Don't attempt any of this if you are inexperienced in working with electricity. 220 Volts can cause death or serious injury... just the flash from an arc can cause blindness and burns.

Left burner is not working

these elements merely unplug when you lift up the one side of the element,then just easily rock back and forth till it unplugs from the stove top

No heat to all elements. The stove is getting power, but all four elements stopped working at the same time.

VERIFY that ALL voltages are present. The power CAN appear to be getting there, but one side of the 240 volt line could be open and indicators SEEM to work but nothing will operate.
