Help! I have a smooth top electric range, and all of the surface elements
decided to stop working on the low setting. They all work on the high settings,
but not low. Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong?
P.S.: The range is a Kenmore Elite, with convection oven, about 8-10 years old.
Not sure of the model number
It may be a blown breaker on one of the 120V inputs to the range.
Just a guess, but throw the double circuit breaker at the power panel
for the stove to "Off", and then throw it back to "On", and let us
know what happens if anything. The fact that all the LOW postions are
bad means it has to be something common to the whole stove, and the
input power lines are suspect. It could also possible be an open
neutral line, but that seems less likely.

Those breakers are double and connected. If one leg
opens, so does the other. Plus, if one side was open,
you would not get any heat, certainly not high heat,
because they are 240V. They modulate the heat by
turning the 240V power on and off.
