Question about Kenmore 96599 / 96592 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

The warming drawer element stopped working. Any tips on checking if it's the element vs. the computer control panel that's causing the problem? When I inspect, there appears to be a relay that is next to the element inside the drawer - is that true and is that something that I should also check? This range has already had problems - one range element had to be replaced after it stopped working w/in the first 6 months and the touch screen computer control panel had to be replaced after the LED's started to fail w/in the first year. Both are expensive parts to buy.

Warming drawer not heating

Hi friend, I appreciate your inquiry

Based off the information you have provided it sounds like a possible issue within the element in your warming drawer or the sensor. You may have to schedule a technician to come out and evaluate any damage a spillover may have caused with your drawer. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Check Fault Codes

If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the wiring diagram and tech sheet in the dishwasher that will provide information on the fault.

If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

Fisher and paykel DD605 stops at 25 mins

Most likely a fault with the heater element. Check if the water is warm when it stops during a heavy wash cycle.

Oven was on , noticed steam around door, then sparks and smoke came from directly above door, strong burning electrical smell , switche power off from stove and fire went!!!

what is the make and model number of the range if you had sparks flying from under the door assure that the element has not burned out usually when the element does go bad it does cause an arc at the bottom of the unit also if your unit had a warming drawer there would also be an element located inside the warming drawer as well and this could also cause the sparks. also this can be caused by a piched wire also grounding to the frame as well you would need to unplug the machine and take the rear panel off the machine and then do a continuity test to the elements this would assure if your problem is with the elements or not If you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue to help others in similar situations in the future thanks again Rick

Top and control panel work but oven does nothing less than a year old.

bake%20element2.jpg Bake element Most times it is easy to see a failed oven element. Their will be a hole or a welded mark somewhere on the element where a piece of cheese fell on it and caused a hotspot. You can also check elements with a meter or simply apply some wall current to them using a cheater cord to see if it gets warm. If the element gets warm that means it will work and is not bad. If the element ain't coming on but you have checked it out, of course then that would be the thermostat. HEADS UP: When fooling with the stove always be sure the power is off. Pull out the bottom drawer and most of the time you can unplug the power cord without moving the stove. To make it easier to work on most stoves the oven door can be removed. I set the door at the broil position and gently ease up on the door, remove it, and set it to the side. As far as the oven thermostat goes, they are simple enough to replace but quite expensive. I suggest if you have an electronic oven control then that old extended warranty plan is a winner. Heads Up: One thing you want to remember about fancy electronic controls, never put the stove on self clean! The temperature will cause the delicate electronics to fail. I don't care what anyone says. That stove will get to 900 degrees and adversely affect those controls.

Fisher paykel DD603 top drawer starts cycle then stops and beeps and doesn't go thru cycle

When it stops and beeps can you tell me all lights that are on when you open the drawer cheers. also check to see if the water in the tub is hot if not you have a heating issue. either a faulty element or Mtr Controller module. try swapping the Mtr Controller module (computer board) from the top drawer to the bottom drawer and see if that moves the fault. cheers
