Kenmore Elite cooktop Control board connection help
« on: March 13, 2014, 12:08:11 AM »
I have a kenmore elite electric cooktop model # 790.46603500.
I recently replaced one of the heating elements and while putting back all the things back together, forgot two connections. I haven't put it back together yet since I don't want to make wrong connection and fry the board or anything else.
there are two connectors with 4 pins each and they go next to each other - just not sure which one goes where. One connector has a single RED wire and the other connector has Black and white wires. on the board it say P11 and P13.. Can someone please help which connector goes where?

Thanks!

I do have the diagram. But I can't understand it. Hence in my original post I included the picture with the connections in question.
Thanks for the quick reply.

Does your model have a warming oven? Can you find J6 on the board?

Yes. It has a warming drawer.

Could those wires go to the warming drawer? Trace them to the source. See where they go.

I used a much simpler way to figure out which connector goes to which pin. I checked the scratches on the pins; since 1 connector had 1 wire, it was easy to decipher which connection went to what pin. I even replaced the infinity switch and the cook top is working great now.

thanks for the quick replies all. Appreciate the help.
