You have a wire lose, do not use and unplug the range. Have a tech come and look at the wires.

SOURCE: The burner control goes ''pop.''

Your igniter lead is shorted by some foreign object and needs to be cleaned before it kills the spark module.
This usually happens when you have a pot that boils over spilling liquids and solids on the igniter contacts.
Check the igniter area on the side that doesn't pop to locate the igniter tip, then find the exact match to it on the other side and clean it off with a toothbrush and alcohol.

Grill starts then turns off


Need more information because if you have an appliance with some kind of safety valve using an electric sensor or thermocouple there are a few ways to test the problem in order to determine where the actual failure is happening.
With normal residential barbecue grill models I hear this complaint usually with infrared models. If an infrared burner ignites and then blows itself out this indicates the ceramic tiles at the top of the housing are cracked. Over time this will grow worse and can pop or even throw-out flame which can make it scary since infrared burners are so effective because they pressurize the gas for maximum heat.

My oven wont turn off from the knob it keeps turning


You didn't say whether you have a gas or electric oven, or oven & stove. I'll assume you have a stove, just to cover all bases.

First, you should shut down the oven: a gas stove will have a valve on the gas line behind the stove. The valve will either have a red handle or a flat stem that usually has a hole in it. Turn either valve 1/4 turn to shut off gas, use a wrench on the flat stem. An electric stove should be shut off by flipping off the double circuit breaker for it in your electric panel. Do not unplug an electric stove when it is on; this can damage the plug &/or electrocute you.

Most likely the inside of the knob has stripped out. Look at the knob for a hole that has a setscrew in it: a small allen wrench or screwdriver will loosen the setscrew, most knobs don't have them and will pull off. Be careful to use even pressure on two sides of the knob; if you can't pull it off, use two butter knives or flat screw drivers to pry it up enough to get a grip on it.

Look at the center stem on the back of the knob, it will likely be cracked or stripped. Some stems have a D-shaped metal insert that strips out inside the plastic stem. If you have one, pull off a burner knob and compare the stems in the back, if they are the same size, put the burner knob on the shaft for the oven control, and use that knob to turn the oven control off.

If the burner knob won't fit, use your fingers or a pair of pliers (gently) to turn off the oven control shaft. If the shaft stops normally, you can turn the stove back on using either the gas valve or the circuit breaker. If you have a gas stove that doesn't have electric ignition (a clicking noise when you turn on a burner) you may need to re-light the pilots for the burners. Lift the covers off the burners to re-light the pilots.

If you have succeeded in turning off the oven, you need a new knob -- you can get one at an appliance parts store or maybe a hardware store. If the oven control did not turn off normally, I would leave the oven/stove turned off: the control itself will need to be replaced by a qualified repair person.

I have a Kenmore electric smooth top range that I cannot use the oven on.


it sounds like the clock assy. cooked or there's a shorted wire somewhere,did the bake element crack or short out?this also can take out the clock assy.if the part is 150 dollars that 's not bad,some of them cost 300 or more.good luck with your oven,also you should have an electrician come in and put the stove on it's own electrical line.

I have a Char-Broil Tec grill everything works fine but after about 2 minutes into grilling, a loud popping sound and the tec-radiant burner goes out, this happens everytime I use the radiant burners


The radient burner most likely has a crack in the top. This will make the pop and the burner will go out. Inspect the top of the burner for any cracks, if you find one, the only solution is to replace the burner. Since these burners get very hot, I do not recommend having the grill lid closed when these burners are being used, this can cause them to overheat and crack the top surface.

My Whirlpool electric range made a loud electrical popping/cracking noise followed by smoke. Now the indicator light for the left front element is always on. Also when we try to turn on any burner the eft...


Sounds like you have a short in one of your burner switches that may have also taken out your main control. Does your oven work normally? Those error codes are related to 1] control board and 2] oven over temp, so the burner issue is unrelated except in that it may have surged the control.

you can view the switches by removing the rear panel(if this is a freestanding range) and from the description you will likely see the shorted component with some black marks around it. Please unplug the range first,as these wires are live even when all burners are off

Burners on JP326 electric not heating


Sounds like breaker tripped so no 220 to unit. Reset breaker. The burner switch you first turned on probably blew out and needs replacing, so don't turn it on again. If all else works ok, then that is it. Unless you are handy you may want to call the repair man.

You need to check the connection at the back of the unit that hooks to the house power. Turn off breakers or pull fuses before checking. It sounds like you only have half of the voltage you need. One of the wire connectors may be burnt or you may have a problem with the house wiring.
