Kenmore Range Damaged Burner Elements

If you’re experiencing issues with damaged burner elements on your Kenmore range, it’s essential to address this problem promptly, as it can affect the range’s cooking performance. Here are steps to diagnose and potentially resolve the issue:

1. Identify the Damaged Element:

First, identify which burner element is damaged. You may notice visible damage, like cracks, holes, or irregularities in the element’s surface.

2. Turn Off and Unplug the Range:

For safety, ensure that your Kenmore range is turned off and unplugged from the electrical outlet.

3. Remove the Damaged Element:

Carefully lift or detach the damaged burner element from the range. Follow your owner’s manual or user instructions for guidance on how to remove the element. Typically, it involves lifting and gently pulling the element.

4. Inspect and Replace the Element:

Examine the damaged element for the extent of the damage. If the element is cracked, broken, or otherwise compromised, it’s best to replace it with a new one. Replacement burner elements can be purchased from appliance parts suppliers or the manufacturer.

5. Installation of New Element:

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installing the new element. It typically involves sliding it into place and securing it with any retaining clips or brackets provided.

6. Test the Burner:

Turn on the range and test the newly installed burner to ensure it heats up properly and maintains the desired temperature.

7. Regular Cleaning and Maintenance:

To prevent future damage to your burner elements, practice regular cleaning and maintenance. Clean the burners and the surrounding area to prevent food or debris from damaging the elements.

8. Seek Professional Help:

If you encounter difficulties during the replacement process, or if the burner element continues to malfunction after replacement, it’s advisable to contact a professional technician. They can diagnose and address any underlying issues affecting the burners.
