Ceramic stove top
 
I was installing a new control knob for one of the elements. I wrote down the pin outs with the matching wire color. I turned on the power switch the knob of the broken element , it started to spark and it tripped the
Main 40 amp breaker. I took it part again to check for any black marks and didn't any. I put back to together how it was. It didn't blow the Main breaker .the element that was broken works but the dual element does not work. Could I have blown a breaker on the stove or shorted out the element, rendering it useless?

Crap, a Canadain Kenmore.....Canadian models #'s ( esp dept store brands ) are not online so we cannot look up much for them.
970. is a Frigidaire built Kenmore.

Maybe we can try with the part# you purchased.

Normally no breakers in the range ( exception is often the kettle outlet plug ). If just the switch was replaced, possible the wires got mixed up damaging the switch for the element on that same side ( left or right ).

I match all the wires to its corresponding colours for example L1 white, P blue, H1 white with blk tape ( to distinguish between whites) H2 white L2 black. The new part # 318293810. I upload two picture of the original control swt. I don't know if this will help.
Thanks Jeff

It's the element on the bottom right that is broken now but the element on top right is the one I fixed. It's working as it should( top right) The bottom right element red indicator light is always on but is not warm nor hot to the touch. All I can think of is its a dead short to the right element. Indicating a hot surface with no heat to the ceramic top.
Thanks
Richard
