Make: Jenn air
nothing just starting to trouble shoot and it is not at this location.
Thanks for the question.
This is the burner for your stove, you would need a volt meter to check the burners to see if thats the problem, it could also be the switches causing that problem.

using a volt meter? what shoud it read? How would i check the switches? is it rare that both big burners are on a down hill slide simutanously?
If you set the switch to a medium heat do hey work ok.
it generally does not get past low heat and at times it will get to the appropriate setting...ie medium or high
Then that would be the switches causing that problem and not the elements.appliance doctor40422.5407341435
The switches can be bought at any appliance parts store near you or from Sears.
so, is it the switches or burners? how would i check the burners...with the volt meter...or am i just checking for continuity?
It is the switches thats causing the problem, just by what the symptoms are it has to be the switches so theres no testing required.If it was the elements you wouldn't get any heat from them.
do you have a part number...if not that is fine.
thanks for the input..
The part number at Sears is 766300 , hope this helps you with that problem.
Thanks and God Bless.
i checked on the part..it is obsolete...is there any generic part that coud be used?
I see, if you take the switches to an appliance parts store they will sell you one that will fit and work in your unit.
