Question about Marvin 2060 Compact Heater

Heating elements The right heating element does not light up on low setting, but the left one lights up at the hight setting.. I asume the right element is out. I can't figure how to get the element out to replace it. The box says you don't need any tool; I tried to twist it like you do on neon lights but it isn't working. can you explain how to do this and ALSO WHERE CAN I BY A REPLACEMENT? Thank you Ken Duewell E-Mail krdue2@sbcglobal.net

    pushing forward or back did not remove this element; the way it is removed is to push down on the element tube, the base retracts down ;therefore once pushed down it releases from he top,;very easy.

Is this one of those quartz type elements? If so I think you push it one way, forward or back to remove. Try a local appliance parts supply for the part.

    I asked what type element was first first, in case you didn't notice. But thanks for the rating anyway. This is why most questions go unanswered, not enough info. is given.

Front right burner under stove top model 62960002603 only heats to LOW heat. It has a single, dual, triple mode setting and will not heat up to highest setting. HELP.


I looked up the model number you gave. It is a Kenmore range.The part number for that element is 7406P494-60. When you say it only heats to low, do you mean that only the center portion of the element lights up? Normally, when this occurs, it is an indication that the middle element and outer elements have a break. The problem could also be a faulty infinite switch(burner control). The part for that particular control is 7450P011-60. You will need a voltage/ohm meter to troubleshoot further. This can be a very INVOLVED repair attempt. I recommend, that if you're not comfortable disassembling your unit, call for service--this can absolutely be a tricky diagnosis and much care is needed to not damage the glass cooktop when checking the element. I hope I helped you.

Installed new upper & lower elements & thermostats, only top htr works


If original problem was caused by sediment burning out lower element, did you clean sediment out of water heater when changing lower element?
Two element water heaters are 240V.
Thermostats cut power on one hot wire, but 240V circuit has 2 hot wires. So lower element has power at all times coming from the red wire.
1) Use ordinary tester or multimeter set to 240V <> test each screw of lower element to bare metal part of water heater. Each screw should show 120V. If there is no power, then upper thermostat is defective, screw on upper thermostat is loose, or red wire between upper and lower parts of water heater is bad.
2) Remove wires from lower element. Use continuity tester or multimeter set to ohms <> test across both screws of element to see if power travels through element <> if element is bad, then continuity tester will not light up and multimeter will show no ohms. Put wires back on element after test.
3) Start with cold water in tank. Turn on water heater & upper element will turn on. Put ear on side of tank to hear if upper element is heating water. Test #3 screw to #2 screw on low left side of thermostat, should read 240V > Test #3 screw to #4 screw on low right side of thermostat, should read 0V.
Put ear on side of tank. When upper element turns off: Test #3 screw to #2 screw on low left side of thermostat, should read 0V > Test #3 screw to #4 screw on low right side of thermostat, should read 240V. If this test shows 0V and 0V, then upper thermostat is bad. If reading is correct, immediately move to next test.

4) Turn temp on lower thermostat to 150. Using ordinary tester or multimeter set to 240V <> Test across both screws of lower element. If there is no reading, and you know element is good from step 2, then lower thermostat is bad, or wire is bad between lower element and lower thermostat, or wire is bad between lower thermostat and top part of heater.
5) Test across both lower thermostat screws, should read 240V.If this test is good, it means wires are good. Put jumper wire across both screws of lower thermostat, and test lower element again. If element finally turns on with jumper wire, then lower thermostat is bad.

If wire is bad between upper and lower parts of water heater, and water heater has tight-fitting 2" foam insulation, it usually indicates water heater replacement.

Front switch light and fan goes on but no heat in oven, no matter how hight the setting


Hi .
If the oven fan is o/k, then it is probably the oven element that is faulty, I would suggest that you replace the element.
Please rate my solution.

Heated Seats


I had the same problem on my 04 LeSabre. To check to see whether it was the element or the switch, I unplugged both seats and ran jumper wires to make left switch control the right element. The switch and element worked properly. Then I ran jumper wires to make right switch control the left element. The problem was the same, so it was the element was bad.

I had my element replaced at the dealership, since I didn't want to wreck my leather seats. It cost over $400 (about $150 for the element). I guess it just tucks next to the old element - the old element stays in place.

On Light Won't go off on cooktop


I am asuming you mean a standard cook top stove.
you should probebly unplug the range because it looks like a short circuit.
!) a shorted or failing burner/control will light to ground
2) every burrner has a fuse, unscreww each burnner fuse till light goes out. that is the problem piece.
3) change heating elements with the element of the same size on the other side of the stove.
4)put fuse back in. if light off - bad elemet - if light on - bad control
bad control - I'm not sure you want to tackle that. but call me back :)
