Both heating elements will not operate?
Answer Hi. Use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. Make sure all terminal block 240/120vac wires are snug and have proper voltage. If you are referring to the bake element part # 316225001 and the broil element part # 316199900 then I would ohm out each one and make sure the wires to them are not loose or shorted out. If the clock /control relays are not sending the voltage to the elements then replace it. Clock part # 316455420. Thank You.
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.
