The infinite switch that you set when you turn an element on cycles off and on to control the temperature of the element.

When an element gets too hot at a low setting the infinite switch is bad.

If you replace the infinite switch be sure to disconnect the power to the range before removing the back panel to access the switch.

You can order the switch you need at [searspartsdirect.com]. There are 2 different infinite switches on your range. The part number for the switch for the small elements is WB24T10025 and the price is $22.49. The part number for the switch for the large elements is WB24T10029 and the price is $22.49.

i have the same with my stove. but i am having difficulty finding my parts. i went to the website suggested (searspartsdirect.com) put in my model, couldnt find anything. tried searching through the entire database of stoves and didnt have any luck there either. my stove is a Kenmore model # 911.93571891 i am looking for the part # for the infinite switch for the front right burner. although i probably should replace them all while i have it torn apart. any help finding the part(s) would be greatly appreciated.

The model number you sent does not run in our system. I know how difficult older model numbers are to read. I used model 911.93571790 and was able to pull up an image and parts diagram.
Look at this image and see if it has the same features as your range.
Kenmore ranges with a model prefix of 911, with removable coil elements used the same infinite switches. There are 2 infinite switches, one for large elements and one for small elements.
Go to searspartsdirect.com, as you did before, and look at this model.
If you have any questions reply on this thread and we will try to help.

Thank you for your help. trust me i went through every number i could find on the appliance. just to make sure that i am right though. there is a sticker on the unit when you pull out the storage tray from underneath. on there it lists the model and serial number which i stated earlier. i believe that the model number you provided is a similiar unit. it look the same. i can provide the numbers off the switch itself if that will help to determine which one i need.

here are the numbers, and how they read on the switch...
191D1870P001
KS813001
9814804

thank you again for your help in this issue...

Joe, the nimbers you sent from the switch are not part numbers. I was able to pull up the parts information for your range. The range uses 2 different switches. The part number of the switch for the large elements is WB23K5062, and the price is $82.49. The part number of the switch for the small elements is WB23M24, and the price is $51.39. You can order the switches at partsdirect.com?sid=MMLxexpertxmerch.
