Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges
Do you know what the repair for this is likely to cost? Should I just buy a new stove?
Turn the breakers off and wait 10 minutes and then on. If this doesn't clear the problem, you'll need an electronic timer module. Electrical spikes cause problems like this.

the eazy answer is its the burner.i only say that because on most service calls with your complaint it dose indeed end up being the burner.but before i come to that conclusion i do check the out put of that burners switch.if has 220 volt output then its the burner,even tho if you look at the wiring diagram it will show a limiter before it gets to the burner but that part is built in to the switch and is not replacable on its own.so then use volt meter take a look at your wiring diagram .look on that diagram and decide which wires are leaving the questioned switch that controls your bad burner .place your probes on those wires again if reads 220 volts replace the burner. i hope this helps .God bless ,tom

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.

This will sound crazy but I had to work through it on my own stove a few years ago. The ignitor (glow tube) was getting hot but the oven would not owrk. When investigating the problem I found that the gas valve will only open when the ignitor pulls a specific amperage or draw of current. As the ignitor ages it pu;;s a reduced draw of current. This causes you to be fooled by the glow nut no gas. Replace your ignitor and your oven will begin to work again!
You can get ignitors easily online by doing a search for "appliance parts" and then entering the model number of your stove. Look for ignitor and you will be good to go. Also check out a few different sites as the prices of the parts can vary quite a bit.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for your help. I was looking for a thermocouple but that must be old school. I couldn't figure out what told gas to flow."
On this website: http://www.repairclinic.com/0078.asp#Whirlpool , it shows all of the codes for the Whirlpool errors. Based on the remarks, if it shows a "4 digit failure code" it is "Shorted
"Replace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC)"
But verify this as I am not an appliance repair specialist. I am a computer nerd who just knows how to find information. I am actually trying to figure out an answer to my own problem with my Whirlpool Gold Accubake.
