No, sorry,not with a battery,it takes 120 v.a.c. to operate the control panel which controls the gas valve for safety,without 120 volts the gas valve coils cannot open to give you gas flow for ignition of the burners,without a 12volt d.c. to 120volt a.c. inverter or an engine generator/alternator your pretty much w/o a gas stove...sorry

If it is a 110 volt range then get a 12 volt battery and a 12 volt to 110 volt ac converter that should be sufficient enough

Hello, is this a two electrical filament hot plate? Also, is this range stove/oven? I'm a little confused here on what exactly what you are referring to hot plate or cook stove with electrical burners and oven. If it a really old hot plate with one burner look at the plug there could be a fuse in it. If it is electrical range then check the control board and see they a fuse on. If not, check the voltage with a volt meter. Be very careful here there two phase that is 240 Volts AC. The voltage will be split between the two l20 hot legs AC which is 120 degrees out of phase in respect to each other; in other words, don't both of them don't let them touch each other.


If it a kitchen stove I'm fairly sure that the control board is shot and with this not operating it will not open the current/voltage relays for the electrical burners. REMEMBER YOU ARE DEALING WITH 240 VOLT AC...BE CAREFUL.... GB....stewbison

How do I use my Griddle for the first time? We did not get a manual I would like one sent to us.


I can't help you with the manual because you did not provide the make and model number.

Typically, you wash the griddle with soap and water (DO NOT WASH ANY ELECTRICAL CONTROL UNIT!). Rinse and let dry if it has a non-stick coating. If it does not have a non-stick coating (bare metal), towel-dry the griddle, then put some vegetable oil on a paper towel and wipe the entire cooking surface so it is covered with a thin film of oil. Heat it to about 250 °F for about one on-off cycle on the electrical control. It is now "seasoned" and ready for use. If the griddle does not have an electric heater but is designed for use on a range-top burner, set the burner to just below medium heat and heat until water droplets splattered on the griddle boil off quickly.

I have a maytag super capacity plus stove and need to adjust the air mix for the burners. How to do it? Please help thanks


Open the top of the range. I believe there are a couple of spring clips in the front between the range top and the top of the door. Not sure on the Maytag. However, when you get the lid up, (it should be hinged at the back), set the burner pieces back on. (These burner pieces HAVE to be there or you'll just have a blowtorch pointing up!) You'll see that going to every burner there is a tube to carry the gas. on the side of every tube there will be an adjustable, sliding air vent. They are usually held in position by a set screw. Loosen the set screw. Light the burner and carefully slide the vent closed or open to adjust how much air is being brought into the mix. If the flame is way too high and or orange in color....you have too much air. You want as much flame as possible on high without the flame being orange or white-ish. Once you get the flame the way you like it, tighten the set screw back. Hope this helps.

Hello gralexander,

The problem you are experencing is with you control switches. The cheapest place i can find the switch is from searsparts direct. Here is a link to the webpage http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-79046809991/0583/0124160/P0050380/00001?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=79046809991

You will see a diagram in the top left side of the page use it to locate the switches that are bad and order them from sears. You may also need the burners to check them you need a continutity tester.

1. Remove the burner from the socket
2. Take your test and touch one probe to each side of the burner.
3. If you have continunity then the burners are good
4. If not you will have to order burners as well.


Changing the switches:

1. Unplug the range
2. Remove the back panel where the switches are.
3. Remove the knob from the front
4. Remove the screws from the switch you are replacing (Due one at a time)
5. Move the wires from the switch to the corresponding terminal on the new switch
6. Replace the switch and screw in place
7. Do the other switch
8. Reinstall the cover on the back of the unit
9. Plug in and try

Doing all of the above steps should fix the problem that you are having. Please make sure that you install L1 to L1 and L2 to L2 on the new switch other wise you will cross wire it and the rest of the switches will short and need to be replaced.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com. If you have any other questions please post back to this thread and I will do my best to help you with your Range problem

I have a Samsung Induction range and it has an SE error code on the rear left burner contro. I cannot get the code to clear so my whole range top is inoperative. How can I fix this.


"SE" error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or in the back cover, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Top left burner (propane) does not seem to be receiving gas when trying to ignite it with electrical igniter (control knob). However the burner can be lit with a match when the control knob is turned past...


The igniter usually sparks for all burners on the stove at the same time. Usually a little water or gravy, or such has gotten on the little spike that stick up and throws the spark to the burner. If you will take a small brush, like a tooth brush and carefully clean around the little spike it normally starts sparking again. As it is right now, you should be able to see the spark on all the burners whenever you start any of the burners. Check to see on the one that is not lighting, I think you will find that it is not sparking at all right now.

HI HERE THE STEPS TO DISASSEMBLEA gas range cabinet comes apart very easily. Here's how:
Step 1: Take out the screws that hold the panels, and pull off the control knobs. On the control panel the knobs are friction-fit; pull them straight off. Some knobs may have setscrews in the base of the knobs; back out these screws using a screwdriver or Allen wrench and pull off the knobs.

Step 2: Remove the back service panel on the control panel by backing out a series of screws around the edge of the panel. To remove the front panel, take off the control knobs and remove a series of mounting screws that hold the decorative panel to the frame. These screws may be hidden by molding or trim; pry off the molding or trim with a screwdriver, or take out several screws.

Step 3: To gain access to the burner assemblies, remove the burner grates and then the top of the range. The entire range top should either lift up and off the range or open up and back on hinges. The oven door can usually be removed by pulling it straight up off the hinges on both sides of the door. Some hinges have a latch that must be unlocked before the door can be removed.

Step 4: If the surface light of the range burns out, remove retaining screws and panels as necessary to gain access to the bulb. Replace the burned-out bulb with a new one of the same type and wattage; check the ends of the old bulb for this information. Then replace any retaining panels.

Step 5: If the oven light burns out, unscrew it and remove it from the oven. Replace the burned-out bulb with a new one of the same wattage, made for oven use.
