Default Kenmore Dual Burner Indicator Light Always On
Model Number: 790   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 1 - 5 years

Ok. So I have searched high and low for how to troubleshoot this switch. All I am looking for is a way to use my multimeter to determine if the switch is bad. For some reason I can't find it anywhere.

From what I have read it is probably the dual infinite switch but I want to confirm a defective switch with my meter. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi.

Witch indicator light is it- heat on or the hot surface?

Provide the complete model and serial numbers.

Simon.

It is the heat on light, not the hot surface. Model: 790.95372801. Thanks.

Hi.

Trace the wire leading to the indicator light and with the power off remove it from the infinite switch. Turn the power on and if the light is off - replace the switch.
Look for the diagram inside the control panel, at the back of the range, in the bottom drawer compartment.

Here is the large element infinite switch Part number: 316436001

Part number: 316436001

I will try that. I have one question though. This is the dual burner element. Isn't the switch shown above the single element switch. It has the smaller burner are and also the larger area for bigger pots.

So there is no wire that goes directly from the indicator light to the switch. The wires from the indicator light don't directly terminate to the infinite switch.

HI.

According the schematic for a similar range there is the jumper wire connecting P of the small element switch and #4 of the dual element switch.
But if the light belong to that dual infinite switch - replace the switch.
