The right front burner on my range stopped working. What do I replace to fix the problem?
Answer Hello Stacy,
You can do a voltage check on the switch to make sure that you are getting power going to the element and make sure switch is working. With unit on you should have 240vac across h1 to h2 on the switch. If you do not have this then the switch 316436000 is bad. If you do have power then the element 316010205 would be bad.
The "element on" light will not go off although all elements are off. There was a wiring issue with the front left element, I have repaired the broken wire, but the light will not go off.
Answer Hello Joe,
You will want to access the switches on unit. Remove the wire from terminal P on all but one switch. Reconnect power. If the indicator glows then that switch is defective and needs to be replaced. If it does not glow the switch is good. Do this for all the switches. You may want to start with the switch for the front left since this is the element you had trouble with.
The right front 8" element on my kenmore 790 electric range continues to heat after it has been turned off. Does the switch need replaced? If so will your switch 316436000 replace 316021501? Your switch looks different than mine. I marked my switch for wire color but I am unsure how they would connect to your switch. Thanks, Dennis
Answer Hello Dennis, the original switch for the 8" element was 316021501 but was replaced with 316436001. Look for the markings on the switch. Make sure you have disconnected power or turned off the breaker before making this repair. There should be a wiring diagram on the back of the range. If not, the switch should have the terminals marked L1, L2, H1, H2, and P. Terminals L1 and L2 are the wires for the power coming to the switch. Terminals H1 and H2 provide the power going to the element. The P terminal is usually for an indicator light. Hope this helps!
Serial is VF72138862. Is part 316436001 the correct replacement infinite switch for both the large and small burners, left front and back respectively?
Answer Hello Peter, The switches for the large and small elements are different. The large element switch is 316436001 (Left Rear and Right Front burners). The small element switch is 316436000 (Left Front and Right Rear burners). Thanks!
I need to replace the switch on the oven that controls the light and convection fan. I believe the part number is 316209903 and I also need a switch for my right front dual burner. I can not find the part number for this. Could you please help me with this? Thank you.
Answer Hello Candice,
The part number for the door switch which turns the light on and off is 316209903. The convection fan motor is turned on by turning on convection bake at the control. The right front burner switch is 316239601KIT.
I need to replace the switch for the large left front burner on my stove. The part number on the original switch is 316021501 (type B). I purchased a replacement switch and it is labeled part# 316436001. The replacement switch is about a third larger than the original and the terminals are configured a little bit differently. Will the new part work on my stove? The model# of the stove is FEF355ASF and the serial# is VF32913265. Also, is there a wiring diagram that will show me how to hook up the new switch? My husband labeled the wires poorly when he removed the switch, so I want to be sure I'm connecting everything correctly. Thank you for your help! Laurel
Answer Hello Laurel, looking at your model number, I show your left front burner to be a small element but if you have a large element, the switch for the large element is part# 316436001. The switch for the small element is part# 316436000. It's common for the manufacturer to change the switches over time so they make look different from your original switches. Make sure you have disconnected power or turned off the breaker before making this repair. There should be a wiring diagram on the back of the range. If not, the switch should have the terminals marked L1, L2, H1, H2, and P. Terminals L1 and L2 are the wires for the power coming into the switch. Terminals H1 and H2 provide the power going out to the element. The P terminal is usually for an indicator light. Hope this helps!
