Kenmore model 790.99012 burner is not coming on completely

When I turn on the front burner it only heats in the middle the outer part will not come on. Also it was only going up to 8.5 setting I took off the dial and put it back on which seemed to resolve the problem. Any ideas?

SOURCE: The inner right front element

inner element burned out. Either burner needs replacing or control switch is bad. Take out burner and see if coil has a break in it. IF not, then switch is bad. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

SOURCE: kenmore glass top range left front large burner out

check the burner socket, it is likely that contact is being lost where the burner connects to the hardwired portion of the system (the socket). It is not unusual for the socket to "burn up" when there is a poor connection to the burner resulting in the burner being replaced and the new burner not working or working intermittently.

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.

The stove part has five burners, 4 outer and one in the middle. One day the four outer burners stopped lighting, but the center one still does light. The four outer burners all still click when...


Look for obstructions or a buildup on the spark tip on each burner. I use a tooth pick to clean around them. Let the burner completely dry before trying to light it since water will give a shorter path to ground which will produce a smaller on no spark at the burner.

I have a kenmore elite range model no. 790.9911. The right front burner wont turn off. Is it the switch, burner or control board


On this model (with the glass touch controls, right?), it is usually caused by a bad, sticking relay on the relay board, located on the back side of the oven, down near the bottom. Some of these models had a safety recall... You might want to check to see if yours is one of the affected models. (The model number you gave is not complete; find the complete model # & serial # on the range itself, usually on the range frame, visible when you open the drawer or open the door.

Could you find the completer mode number because the number listed above your post is for a gas oven.
Look at following areas for the model number

The inner right front element will not heat up on our Kenmore Elite ceramic stove top. The middle and outer elements on the right front work fine. Why is this happening?

Kenmore Elite 790 Range


I can't believe I found this today. Today, my Elite 790 inner coil also stopped working! A little too coincidental.

When I turn on the burner, I can hear like a relay click on, but it does not heat. The middle and outer burners are fine.
