Default Surface element does not heat
Model Number: 790.99013   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The large dual element on my range doesn't heat up. I removed the element and tested the resistance, read approximately 80 ohms. I tested another element and only read 23 ohms. According to some online research I found it should be between 19 & 115 ohms. I tried swapping switches between elements and the problem remained with the same element. Could it be the power control boards or is my resistance to high for that element?

Cool Incomplete model number

Quote:
Model Number: 790.99013
That model number is incomplete, it is 3-4 digits. Please post the complete model number so we can look it up to see what appliance you're dealing with and what components it uses which might be responsible for problems.

If the element was the problem it would have infinite resistance. Anything else and it is is likely good (or at least not the cause of a 'no heat' complaint).

Did you check the element's limiter switch? If open it would prevent the element from heating as well.

Default

Model from the data plate inside the warming drawer reads is 790.99013101. The unit is a Kenmore Elite Range. In the meantime I tested the voltage to that element and only saw 12-13 volts ac. I haven't checked the limiter

Lightbulb Test limiter

I don't know how you are testing to get that reading. AFAIK the element should receive 240 volts or nothing.


Quote:

Someone should because if the element is definitely good, either no power is getting to the element or the limiter isn't allowing it to reach the element.

BTW. If the element limiter is found to be defective the whole element will have to be replaced as the limiter is not available separately.
