You said, you have a 12 year old Kenmore Range. Smooth-top, over which only 3 eyes
And you've lived with this for a couple of years. But now the bottom element burned out.
It sent sparks flying as it glowed brightly and released fire as this bright spot moved around from one side of the element to the other and finally went out.
You would like to replace whatever is needed.
Please help determine what is needed.
This is the old model # PLT083-2. You see it inside the door.
My advice is that after 12 years and a number of failures. especially the sparks!
You should replace this range! Do not put good money into bad!
I believe you deserve the pleasure and comfort of a new range before the holidays!
Here is a report I just read !
I believe it will help you decide and you may find it very interesting!
Repair or replace you appliances?
When to pull the plug on your old Appliance
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your appliance,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your appliance is under warranty or less than four years old
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that appliances under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your appliance is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new appliance.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive appliance
six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a appliances you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

This means you hace a problem with your clock. Take the back off the stove and then pull the ribbon connector off the clock and clean the terminals. If that doesnt fix it replacing the clock should fix it.

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.
