Hi Sir, What are model numbers for front right and rear left (face oven) elements of KESC308LSS? How do I open the top to replace them?
Answer Peng, the right front element is part number 8523696 and left rear is part number 8523697. Here are the instructions to remove/replace parts. Hope it helps. Thanks. 1. Unplug range or disconnect power. 2. Remove the control panel from its' sub-chassis and rotate it forward onto the cooktop glass. 3. Remove the five screws and flat washer from the control panel sub-chassis. 4. Move the control panel back into place over the chassis, then lift the front of the cooktop assembly, and prop it up with a piece of board so that you can access the components. CAUTION: Be careful that the cooktop does not accidentally fall.
The blue wire to my large front burner has burned through. Do I replace th burner for this. When I short the wire to the burner, the burner has no control, it stays on high.
Answer Louise, No, you shouldn't need to replace the surface element WB30T10132. You will need to repair and insulate the blue wire and replace the element control switch WB24T10145. The switch cycles the element off and on when in a cook mode, since it's stuck on the high setting, the switch has failed.
My front right large burner (with dual simmer small burner) does not cycle temperature up and down it just goes full hot and stays there which burns most food. How do I fix that? and what is the replacement part number?
You could check your limiters on the unit to see if they are bad. If you check on the burner from 2a to 1a on the element there should be no continuity. If there is then the limiter is open and would need to replace the element. If it has no continuity then the switch is bad. To get into the unit you would need to pull the unit from installation and remove the screws around the perimeter of the cooktop that holds the main top in place.
The burners on top of the range are not getting as hot as they use to. Do I need to replace them with new units?
Answer Hello Bruce,
This can be the fault of the elements or the infinite switches. They both play a role in temperature control.
Left rear burner does not come on. Indicator light on control comes on. Does this indicate a bad burner or a bad control?
You can test to see which one is faulty by accessing the switch by pulling the unit out and removing the rear cover. With the burner turned on you will test for 240 vac on the H1 to H2 terminals on the switch. If there is 240 vac then the switch is good and the element is bad. If there is not 240 vac then the switch would need to be replaced.
