Red face Element or infinite switch?
Model Number: 629.45766691   Brand: Kenmore   Age: More than 10 years

Element on Kenmore cooktop went out. Had it replaced and now it won’t cycle off (“runaway”). Could it have been improperly installed? If infinite switch was cause of dead element, how can it now be heating up? Would appreciate quick reply as repairman(?) is coming back tomorrow. Many thanks.
