Question about Kenmore 75503 Stainless Steel Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

8 Answers

Racks falling down

The racks in my 75503 fall to the bottom of the oven when you bake.
It's like the dimensions of the oven walls or the racks have changed. The racks are about 1/4" too short to fit properly. Has anybody seen this problem before. It's a first for me

    I have the same problem - what is the solution?

    Same problem here.  We have model 79046622505.  Repair man is coming out in two days.  I'll post what he says.  This one is going to be reported to the consumer products safety commission for sure.  This is way too dangerous and unacceptable.

This is a 100% fix.

  1. Go to your local home improvement store and buy a 1/4" diameter mild steel rod in a length to allow about 1 foot per shelf you need to fix. It will be under $5.
  2. Take it and the racks to someone who can wire weld - a muffler shop, high school shop, or friend. They can cut the rod to fit the end of the rack, then weld it from the bottom to extend the rack by 1/4".
  3. Once put back in the oven, you won't hardly notice it. Repeat on the other side of the rack if it needs to be wider.

    This is a great idea thanks. I found a local welder who supplied and attached these rods on our 3 racks for around $50. Considering that Frigidaire wanted $80 for each oversize rack to cure our problem this was a cheap effective cure. I must say though after this and another problem with Frigidair I will not purchase another cooker from them future!

I was worried that welding would be expensive, so I just took some aluminum foil and rolled it into a long thick wire shape. I then coiled it around the rack on either side to extend the width of the rack. I considered picking up some copper wire and doing the same thing, but I had the aluminum foil handy.

Sears has no solution other than call repair and have a costly replacement of oven cavatiy, with no guarantee it will not happen again. Turn power off to stove, a precaution. Unscrew top, mine is ceramic top, pull forward and lift, slide to side. Remember wires are still attached to burners. Unscrew back and side. Looking at stove, I did left side. Open bottom oven door, remember the way this comes out is the way to put it back on, Lift side panel up and twist it towards you, you may have to jiggle or shake it. (The panel slides in at bottom in front of leg.) you may want to use a mask at this point. This exposes the insulation covering the oven measure a piece of 2x4 or 2x3 pieces of wood, I used 2lb rubber mallet, if you don't have use a 2 lbs heavy hammer. Put the wood vertical across all the rack cuts on outside of oven side, using light to medium force hit wood in center and move forward a few inches, repeat til you get to front and repeat going to rear. Test racks for fit. I had to do it once more applying slightly more force and racks fit prefect and snug. ( I slipped and hit oven edge and bent it in don't fret I put wood on inside of oven and moved it flush from inside to out, so be careful). Reassembly the stoves. And yes Kenmore no longer stands behind and is now producing substandard products. My opinion. Good luck.

The liner needs to be replaced. I contacted Sears and surprisingly found out that my Kenmore Elite 790.46603501 model only cost $180.20 to replace the liner! No idea what the labor will run since I am 2 years out of warranty. I love this oven and a compatible model would run me well over $1500 I think I will go with replacing the liner. I won't use the self-cleaning function once it is replace, just in case this was the original cause.

    I have the same model Kenmore oven with the same problem. Repair guy came today. They no longer work for Sears but a company called A&E. The liner will cost $216.29 and the labor is $523.80 for a total of $791.90 including tax. This is unacceptable, why should the liner warp unless it was a defect. It looks like I am not alone.

We can't get our flat oven racks in our wall oven - our electrician in to look and he wondered if they were the wrong ones.


We really need a tiny bit of clarification.... Do the oven racks go in at all? Most oven racks have a "bend" in the rear of the rack that requires you to lift up the front as you insert it into the tracks. There is a "bump" at the front of the tracks that this bent part of the rack needs to go under. This is in order to keep the racks from falling out if pulled out too far when removing items. If your racks are either too wide or too narrow to fit at all, then you likely have the wrong racks.
Hope this was helpful, and if it was please thumbs up my response.

The racks all fall out if even the slightest weight is on them, very scary keep waiting to burn myself badly


Hello Kathy Manson - Unfortunately, based on the symptoms you are describing, the oven liner would need to be replaced. The oven liner cannot be adjusted or shimmed to resolve this issue. If I was in your position, I personally recommend consulting an experiencing service technician to assist with the repairs.

Should I get a wine wall rack or the traditional shelves rack?


I strongly recommend the shelves rack and thisis for the following reasons: First, the wall rack is more likely to fall fromthe wall where the shelves seem more firmly designed. Second, the wall rack Ihave seen have the bottles stuck in it in a way that they look like they areabout to fall - I personally does not like this type of design. I like my wineto be firmly held in the traditional way, but, hey, this is me.

Baking on two racks - whenever I try to bake cookies on top and bottom racks, the lower tray does not bake anywhere NEAR as quickly....should I be able to bake evenly on up and down racks?


Hi,
Two racks never bake as evenly as one unless you use the fan inside the oven if you have one...The fan will also shorten the baking times...
The other thing that I would check is to make sure that the lower element in your oven is not blown and you are heating with the top element only...

Jenn Air W30400 wall oven does not heat.


Turn off the power to the oven.
Remove the racks.
Remove the BAKE element screws and carefully pull the element out.
Remove the wires from the element,being careful not to let the wires fall back into the oven cavity.
Use a volt meter set for continuity and touch the meter leads to the element terminals.
No reading is a bad element.
Replace the element.
If you do get a reading,the electronic control is bad.

Oven racks


Hello bargarmar
Welcome

You said, Your Jen-Air stove's oven racks keep falling after the heats been on. This is scary and unsafe. Your gas range is only 2 years old.

This may be caused by the racks being left inside the range when using the self cleaning system. Which can cause the racks to become warped and or discolored.
If they are warped they may not sit even in the oven while baking and also move or change their shape
form the heat every time you use the warped racks in the oven.

If you leave the oven light on before you start the oven and watch the racks as they warm up with weight on them you will see if this is the case.
Then you will want to replace them.
Let me know what happens.
Huuum
