Major Appliances/Kenmore Electric Range Issue

Question
QUESTION: Kenmore Electric Range Model/Serial 790.94229409.

Initially - The Receptables for this Electric burner did not work. I changed all 4 of them with the Receptable kit and also the coils. However two of them work and the other two do not work.  I changed the receptables again for the ones which did not work - but it still does not work. I was thinking of replacing the wiring harness of this (which has all 4 receptables at one end and the other end goes into the back of the Electric range). Will this owrk. The part # of the wiring harness is 316253501 (with OEM part # 316580420).

ANSWER: There are three components to each burner.  The burner itself, receptacle and the control switch which actually sends the power to receptacles and then ultimately the burner.  You are focusing on only the burner and the receptacles....  Do you have 220 volts at the receptacles in question themselves?

QUESTION: Yes I have the 220 volts power outlet to which the electric range is connected. I am not sure how to check whether 220 volts come in the receptables.

Answer
You will need a voltage meter.  Do you have one to use to test this receptacle?
