Question about Kenmore 46123 Stainless Steel Electric Kitchen Range
I have a GE gas range model# JGSP28SEK4SS with plastic control knobs. They get very hot and I want to replace them with stainless steel ones. I cannot find them anywhere. Any suggestions?
Cheap fan bearings dry out and start to bind, slowing down air flow. This creates condensation and then ice on top which will screw up control board. Try to get help from Sears and you will always get INDIA. This is why Sears in a failing company. They don't care about you!!

The plastic casing (tub shell) around the stainless spin basket should not become worn unless the spin basket is hitting the outer shell. From my past experience, this is usually caused by a cracked or broken spin basket support (spider) arm on the back of the spin basket, or a shot tub bearing (which is also behind the spin basket). The bearing is actually part of the rear tub shell and is molded into the plastic. It cannot be replaced separately and requires the replacmeent of the shell.
If the spin basket supports become broken, the basket becomes off balance and rubs against the outer shell. This results in excessive vibration, which may be the reason why the support shocks were broken. No...this is not normally expected. Unfortnately, this is not a simple or inexpensive repair, either. If you have a service plan, or warranty coverage, I would recommend pursuing that as a repair option. If you wish to repair this yourself, I can post a link for you to follow, but it is expensive. This will usually require the replacement of the following parts:
Rear Tub Shell (if bearing is bad)
Front Tub Shell (if spin basket caused significant damage)
Support Shocks (I would recommend replacing all 4)
Drive Belt Pulley (can become warped or bent)
Drive Belt (if showing signs of wear)
Rubber Door Bellow (if vibration as caused damage to the rubber)
You can go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number to get prices for everything if you like. Everything can be found under the "Tub and Basket Parts" heading, with the exception of the rubber door bellow. It can be located under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading.
I know none of this sounds like positive news, but I do hope you find some of this information helpful. Let me know if you need further assistance.

there is a switch that is broken behind the knobs they cost no more than $15.00. remove the knob so that you can see it it's white in color.
