Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a Inglis smooth top stove, model IME 8230. One of the front has a dial for single/dual --for quick heat up. It was working fine, til couple of days ago, it suddenly went haywire. When I turned it on to low or just #2 (meaning should be low heat),either way to the single or dual , it just heats up realy high(hot), like it 's turned to 8/max for high heat. Normally the element will come on and off when set at any setting(the setting on the dial from low to max); now, it won't go on and off, the element stays on and turns on really hot even set at low. What can be wrong with it??? Would the glass top be able to withstand the high temp. of the element if it does not go on and off periodically????

The swich for the burner is bad and needs to be replaced. The glass will be fine, but unless your just boiling water you wont be abe to use it until you replace the switch.

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.

GE Stove tope range not working


If the phenomenon is intermittent, and you get it going and coming as you restart the oven, then it is likely a bad wiring or a bad connection.
Ensure first that the circuit breaker is ok and well in place, then proceed testing wirings.
Check connectors to buners, hobs, and controls panel.
If all wirings and connections are OK, the what reamins is a faulty control panel or a fault on some of the knob controls.

Where are fuses in Kenmore stove C970


Stoves generally do not have internal fuses they rely on the house circuit breaker to protect the circuit. Some stoves have what is called a thermal fuse. These can trip when the oven or broiler has overheated. Some are located on the back panel and some are located on the top panel under the top of the stove. Since this is a smooth top model there may be one on the back panel. More than likely there is a problem with the oven control circuit possibly in the electronic control. The relays can go bad on the control and the oven will not work.

Either the knob has gone out or the burner element. I would test the knob first to see if there is current when turned to the large zone. If the knob is working, next would be to test the burner to see if the outer ring has burned out. I would guess more likely the control has gone out. Burners have less failure (typically).

JBP84TOHWW GE Electric Range Large Dual Element Not Working


similar problem after a power outage. Display would be blank until I turned ON an element (after which display would light, but no power to the respective element. No elements would heat even thought the dial shows power). Turning OFF the element would blank the display. I reseated the power cord and cycled the 50a basement breaker for 5 mins. Everything now works, but not sure for how long.
