Question about Kenmore Ovens

Open Question

I have a black flat top stove and there are little white spots in the glass. For some reason I have one burner that the white spots have disappeared and it is dark where the pot would sit. There is nothing spilled on the glass. There is no residue of any kind. It is smooth to the touch, seems to works fine, but for some reason the dark spot is there and very evident. Is this something I did? Is it etched in the glass? How do I fix it?

SOURCE: gas top burner not lighting ( 4 others work )

It's probably the ignitor and there may be soemthing clogging one of the gas holes. You can gently use a scrub brush to dislodge any cloggs and see if that helps. You might have to replace the ingitor if this doesn't work. We have parts, so please call us to help. Hope this does the trick for you. Ella

Glass top broken,can it be fixed


The glass top can be fixed. You will need to call a parts dealer to order. They usually run a couple hundred dollars. If you are going to replace yourself than you will need to pull the stove out and disconnect power. Than remove the side panels and it allows access to the screws holding the glass top in place. Be extremely careful when replacing these. They can break easily. Make sure you place burners and everything on the new one exactly how they are on the old one. Easy way of doing this is have a couple big towels and set next to each other and switch parts there. Remember that when you put it back together to clean it with glasstop cleaner before you use the stove.

Stove top ignitors do not ignite but oven does.


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

My front left burner on elec.range model FEFL67GCA does not work.


If it's just quit all of a sudden then I assume it's burned out.You will have to remove the glass top to get to it. The new burner has two wire connectors that plug in. CAUTION: Make sure you disconnect electrcal power to the stove before working on this!

Large burner won't shut off


This stove uses a special switch that turns one way for the large burner and the other way for the smaller burner. I was not aware that this had a seperate simmer burner on it, however. I think you using the wrong term there.

This is not computer controlled--the only computer on it should be the oven switch. I would assume that you need to replace the switch for the dual-size burner. If you take your model number in to Sears, or log onto Sears dot com, you should be able to get to the PARTS DIRECT web site on the computer, and if they ever sold that model you should be able to pull up a parts breakdown with expanded drawing and part numbers and prices. You should be able to buy the part from them. The part should be virtually the same as ANY recent model Frigidaire or Kenmore stove with the same style burner. This should be a very easy repair for you to make yourself, assuming that you know a little about working with electricity--remember, this stove USES 220 VOLTS!

Check out all of the wiring coming into the switch and going from the switch to the burner to be sure that there is not a short!

If you have one of the older smooth surface stoves, where the burners are part of the ceramic top, all bets are off, but anything you bought new in the last half-dozen years, should have a separate burner underneath a glass top, and the repair should be simple. Even with the older stove, it is still likely the switch, and should be no problem.

Replacing glass top stove HELP!!!


You can buy replacement tops for your range. Check with your manufacturer for local parts distributors or service locations and they should be able to find you one. There is also online part stores that sell them like http://www.partadvantage.com/store anywhere from 150-400$
