I have a Kenmore Model # 790.96214403 that right rear burner will not work. How can I make sure the element is bad and not something else?
ANSWER Frank, You'er on track, The infinite / burner switch 316436000, is the most likely issue and the easiest to get to. Remove power to the range, remove the control panel rear cover, turn the switch on, check for a "closed" circuit between the H1 and L1 terminals on the switch, then the H2 to L2 terminals of the switch, with a multi meter. If either circuit is "open" the switch is at fault, and needs to be repalced.
