Question about Kitchen Ranges
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?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Use a needle right where the pilot flame comes out. Should do the trick. GOODLUCK!!

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.
