Help, there's a small hole in bottom of my oven - an old Kenmore stove

This stove is at least 20 years old but still works fine. But while cleaning it, I noticed a couple of holes (corrosion?) in bottom of oven. Can I find a part for something this old? Doesn't seem good to have that kind of leakage from an oven. Can it be safely patched?

    It's an apartment size 24" gas range from Kenmore. I'll see if I can find model no. Seems much cheaper to find a new floor for the oven. I was forced into an expensive remodel of the bathroom of my rental apartment and a new stove wasn't in my budget!! Sounds like there's no easy way to patch it? The oven was barely used in all that time except I think my tenant might have turned it on and left the door open for heating purposes which I forbade him to do! There was also moisture in the apartment. Not sure if any of these factors contributed. Trying to fix all these things!

SOURCE: Kenmore Electric Range - Door handle

I had the same problem with my stove. I tried to replace, glue the srews and other things, but nothing really worked well. It's a shame that Kennmore has such a design flaw in their stoves, but did nothing to help their customers.

Here is the solution that worked for me:

Fix the thread with helicoils (these are inserts that create a new threat in the handle). You can find the instructions how to use the helicoils on Youtube.
I replaced the crews with new screws that fit to the helicoil threat and now the handle is safely secured.

Gas oven takes 30 mins or more to to preheat


Open the bottom and have a look at the burner while its heating. The flame should be strong blue/white and both sides the same, if they are not you have some blocked holes in the burner. Remove the burner and clean out the holes (carefully, don\'t ream them out, use a small paperclip to clean them, be gentle.). Above all do NOT use any kind of oven cleaner on them, if they are aluminum, and most are the oven cleaner will destry it.

I have a kenmore electric stove. The top burner


I have the same problem, it turns out that the clock has a sensor in it to turn on the oven. If that sensor is not working, which is found in the clock, the oven does not work. I had a repair guy come out and it will cost 350.00 to repair. My stove is only six years old. It is only two months to the day off warranty. Apparently a power outage can cause the sensor to go. Hope this helps.

Dislodged oven door, can't re-attach.


All oven door hinges have small grove or tooth that must be engaged to opperate correctly.


Reinsert hinges one at a time, noting there is a small "tooth" or "gap" on each hinge.


This gap must engage with the lower part of opening in which you place door hinges. When you engage one tooth, do same on opposite hinge. Door now works correctly.
