Question about Kenmore Cooktops

2 Answers

No heat in oven/cooktop; but all other features light up/click; unit only in use about 4 yrs; the first time this happened, sev. mos. ago., it started working the minute the technician walked in, as I turned it on; do the Kenmore cooktops have a short life span, or is it time to replace w/ another 4 burner?\r\n Thanks

We set the ovens to bake, they click but do not heat up.


Could be the elements.if it is a fan oven the elements sit behind the rep late.first check the fuse box.then if the oven lights up it could only be the elements.they are easy to replace .you can buy the replacement units off eBay.you can also watch a tutorial on replacing them on YouTube.

My glass cooktop has cracked across the top left corner. It has created a triangle, about 1-1/4 inch on each side. Is this a flaw in the glass?


most of the time for this to happen something would have had to been dropped or excessive weight on the unit ... it is possible over time the unit had a unseen hairline crack and the heat has caused it to become worse... the glass for these units are ridiculous in cost but can be repaired...

Keys on the oven are not working so I can not start oven bake


Thanks for posting to Fixya I will be helping you today. You have posted that you have a Kenmore Elite 44173 electric cooktop with a problem. However, you also mention your are having trouble with the oven not working. This post maybe categorized wrong but I will try to answer you question for both a range and oven control.

Sometimes on a cooktop customers will lockout the controls on accident while cleaning. Usually there is a button on the control that you hold for 4 seconds +/- and there is a little simbol of a padlock next to it or you might have to check the owners manual.

Lastly, Ranges may also have a lock out feature that the customer must press 4 seconds too unlock. On select models controls may also be locked out by putting their oven into sabbath mode. Usually the display will indicate a "SAB" to alert that this feature has been set.

*In general the above instructions should help if your unit is locked out.

Happy Holidays!

When lighting any burner...the igniter continues after lighting."click, click, click, click, click" and so fourth. Thank you for your time.


My parts list doesn't tell me if that is an auto relight unit or not. But since you say it happens on any burner I'll leave out stuck ignitor switch for now.
Check the house ground wire to the unit and check that the burner caps are installed properly. The auto units read a ground when they ignite so if the burner caps are on wrong or dirty they can cause this.

My Kenmore cooktop will not heat properly, all 4 burners. They turn on and heat a little bit, but the burner on lights do not light up and the burners do not heat to full temperature. I closed my oven...


hi my name is mark, a service tech needs to check the voltage to the cook top. you will probably find improper voltage. check data plate for proper voltage should be 208v or 230v depending onwhere you live.

(2) front Burner igniters on my new Matag 30" Cooktop continue to click


Sounds like water got into one of the switches. This usually happens when you wash the knobs. Water stays in the holes and runs down the shaft when replaced. Maytag has issued a recall on some stoves because this can be a fire hazard. UNPLUG THE COOKTOP UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!!!!!!!!! This has happened to me with a whirlpool unit and it tripped a breaker and shot sparks across the kitchen. First go to Maytags web site and see if yours has a recall. If so Maytag will fix it free. While you are waiting leave stove unplugged and light with a match. If you need to fix this yourself disconnect the wires from the two switches this should stop the sparking. Connect one switch at a time and see which switch is bad. Most of the time the electric part of the gas valve can be replaced seperately. and you can do this yourself. If you must actually disconnect a gas pipe unless you really know what you are doing call for service.
