Question about Kenmore Cooktops
Replace cooktop element
Mine cracked and I ordered a replacement shipped overnight. I can't get a repair person out before Christmas. Is it easy to do it myself?

On each of the heating elements there is a thermostat that does two things. It is a high limit safety thermostat and then a different set of contacts turn on the hot surface light. Unfortunately, you can't just replace that part. You will need to isolate which element it is with a mutimeter and replace the entire element.When you turn one of the units on high you will see a dark line under the glass running 1/2 way across the elements. Those are the thermostats... Find the defective one and the rest is pretty simple to replace

Model Number is always helpful when
This part should still be available from a local parts outlet. You'll need model and serial and color. Model and serial are located underneath the unit on its bottom.
You won't like the price. Good Luck

there is a problem with either the elements or the controls,i doubt it is the elements as its unlikely that all of them are faulty at once.the control knobs or control panel is more likely the problem.
