Hello,

You should first check the wiring on your knob to be very sure that it is not malfunctioning or having partial contact by touching the back burner mapping or control. if everything is okay there, then you van check the below as well but if not, please fix the partial contact on the knob.

Secondly,Inspect the element to determine whether it plugs into a receptacle, as most do, or is wired directly.

Remove the plug-in element and inspect the prongs: Lift up the front of the element, then pull the element straight out.Check to see if the prongs are burned, pitted or otherwise damaged. If they are, you'll need to replace the element and the receptacle.

Take care.

    My question was not about a microwave, It is a Kenmore cooktop,and the wiring is ok I have no idea why when you turn on the front left burner the left back burner comes on , but I will retry again. thanks

    Hello,

    Have you check the manual to see if theirs is anything relating to this? because one possible reason among others could be that the left front knob is having partial contact with back burner that is why it turns on while the front knob is turn on.

    From the manual, i doubt if this is the way it is been designed but the cause cold be what have stated above.

    Try as you said again and the performance.

    Take care.

GE stove with defective surface unit


Make sure that the replacement is receiving power. If not U need to trace the wiring that goes to the element for the source of the issue.
Also check the power switch to that burner.

I clean the burners and the ignite it is not working if i used a lighter the back tow burners will turn on but not the front ones


Sometimes when we clean the burners we get some debris or gunk into the gas outlets. I always take a toothpick and clean out the gas openings. Be very careful that you don't break the toothpick off in the opening. Once you've done this, use a lighter at the burner and turn on the gas. You should have a flame. Let the flame burn for about 5 minutes to burn off any more "gunk" that may be in there. Also, if your burners have covers, make sure they are in place before you light the burner.
Depending on the age of your range, you might need to clean around the igniter. Some are concealed and you can't reach them. Those that are not concealed can be cleaned by wiping with a soft, dry cloth.
I hope these suggestions help you get your range working again. If they do, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

I have a kenmore elite range model number 790 46809 991 and the burner on both the left and right are acting up. They both show that a burner is on on the control panel (not surface indicator) and the...


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

Are the burners warm all the time? If so then this is a problem. Perhaps when you had your incedent were you leaning forward and pushing on the front controls? Or was the container pushing on controls on the top? .....Pushing on the controls can case them to get hot.

YES, you need a GE professional to look at this.
Good luck,
