Plef398ccc burners not turning on and rechecked wiring

Long story short. First problem the front right burner stayed on. I replaced the relay board one wire at a time. Then the digital screens for the boards did not turn on. I lifted range and that is where I found the mouse electrocuted at the hot wire for the front left burner. Stoves beeps and F5 came on all the screens. Research says that clock board needs to changed. So I changed that and still the same thing. I am hoping that it is not all the burner controls that is failed. What do you think?

my assistance has already been rejected, so i don't know if you will get this post. before buying any more parts, check to make sure you are getting a full 220v at the outlet and test each leg (110v) against the neutral and ground wires to make sure they are good too. when you get a short, like the dead mouse scenario, the breaker might trip on one side of the dual breaker, giving you a machine that seems to have power but does not function properly.

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.

LG lre30451S burner will not shut off. It is stuck on high and the only way to get it to go off is to flip the breaker. When I flip the breaker back on the burner goes back to high. Thanks


I had the same problem with my LG front left burnr. Look at the back of your range there should be schemetic for your power control board. look for defective burner wire going into relay. There should be 5 relays in rows. Relay is the problem. I had the same problem with my front left burner stuck on high.
After replacing relay everything works fine.

Right front electric stove is stuck on high without shutting off, regardless if knob is switched to off. Needed to unplug the stove completely from electricity.


it depends on the model and manufacturer of your stove .. some have solid state relays that could be shorted (usually computer controlled stove) or a conventional relay (for cycling) that may have a stuck contact .. if its a conventiional stove with spiral cooking surface (not smoothtop) .. then you can make sure the burner is not hot and the stove is unplugged .. then you can simply lift and pull the burner out of its socket .. that will get you working temporarily on the other burners until ;you can fix the problem .. that burner could have an internal short to ground .. easy to check with an ohm meter or by substitution of one of the other burners .. if another burner does the same thing then suspect the relay or control switch ... if the substitute burner works properly then replace the defective one ..

Dual element burner on glasstop range...inner element stays on


It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.

I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.

Hope this helps.

How do you replace a burner switch on a Frigedaire Glasstop Stove


Hello,

The repair on this stove will be relatively easy then. All you are going to have to do is pull out the stove from the wall and remove the upper part of the back panel where the burner switches are.

Remove the knob and take out the screws that hold the switch to that front panel. Then from there just match up the wires to the new switch off the old one.

This repair will turn out to be pretty cut and dry for you. If you have anymore questions please ask.

Thanks Again,
Bill

Replacing a radiant element on a maytag glass top range I'm having strange problems with the two right elements of my MER5770 The front larger dual element will only operate at high heat. When turning on...


If the burner is scorched or pitted, go ahead and replace it. New burners can cost anywhere from $10 to $40. Otherwise, check the burner's electrical connections to make sure there is solid contact. Jiggle the burner in its socket. If it is loose, then remove the burner—most just pull out of the electrical socket, although some are mounted with a screw. (Always unplug the range before removing a burner.) Slightly spread the two terminals apart for a tighter connection. If it still doesn't work, then replace the faulty burner with a functioning burner of the same size. If that burner works, then replace the bad burner with a new one. If it doesn't, then inspect the electrical socket for damage. If it's charred, replace the socket. To do so, remove the screws that secure the socket to the range and then unscrew the range wires. Attach the wire connections of the new socket to the range wires and reassemble the burner.

After replacing everything works okay.
