Kenmore Stove The back left burner shorts out the whole stove when turned on. I replaced the fuse but that did not help. Do I need to replace the element or is there something else I need to look at?

Check the wiring first, but it is usually the element. When they burn out t hey usually short to ground.

One burner won't ignite. The electode was


Most likely its dirty meaning the burners themselves and aren't getting any gas through. If you feel lucky you can do this without turning off or unplugging the stove, but on the oft chance there is a short I would do those just to be on the safe side. If you know how lift the top part of the stove up, you did not give model number. Find the electrode and clean with a clean toothbrush, plug in see if there is a sparks, actually look for the spark first. If you have a spark then your issue is the feed to your burners or the burners themselves being clogged. The feed is like a straw should there be an obstruction than nothing passes through. Clean the burners with a pin, blow through the gas inlets that go to the burners. After cleaning retry.

On Light Won't go off on cooktop


I am asuming you mean a standard cook top stove.
you should probebly unplug the range because it looks like a short circuit.
!) a shorted or failing burner/control will light to ground
2) every burrner has a fuse, unscreww each burnner fuse till light goes out. that is the problem piece.
3) change heating elements with the element of the same size on the other side of the stove.
4)put fuse back in. if light off - bad elemet - if light on - bad control
bad control - I'm not sure you want to tackle that. but call me back :)
