I have a Kenmore 790-92683301. The left front burner serves as a burner and a simmer. When I turn on the burner it does not heat up but when I press the simmer button it heats up. Is this the switch and if so which one do I need. Thank you.
You will want to check the push button as it may be faulty. Also check the burner switch for 240 vac coming off the burner switch at the h1 and h2 terminals. If there is not 240 vac then you will need to replace the burner switch.
My control panel works, all buttons perform as they should however I can not see the clock/temp. Pixels very dim what can I do?
The lights dimming on the control board would be caused by a faulty control board which would need to be replaced to correct. Unfortunately the clock 316080103, which is the part required, has been discontinued by the manufacture with no replacement.
Back burner does not come on but the light that says burner is on is lit.
Answer Hello Joe. You need to check and see if the switch is sending power to the element. If not, replace the switch. If it is sending the power, replace the element on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Everything works on my stove, except my oven. What is the problem and what part do I need?
Answer Hello Shirley. If there is power coming to the control board, but not out to the elements, you will need to order and replace the control board 316455420 on the unit.
