Oven touches cabinet inner wall of cabinet. Fire hazard or not?

Hi.

I bought an cabinet mounted oven and the back of it touches the cabinet wall after installation. I am afraid that the heat might cause a fire. Is there a minimum distance from cabinet walls or sheetrock to respect when istalling ovens? Can I install a fire rated material?

New element touching bottom of oven. Two small holes in over.


The element should not touch the bottom of the oven. I would call up the person that did the repair and tell them about the small holes. This may be a fire hazard. You should not be charged for work that was done improperly.

Kenmore digital oven model 79095321303 temperature is wrong. Digital display on oven says 350 degrees but oven thermometer placed in center of oven (middle rack) shows 200 degrees. When I up the...


It could be one of two things either the control board or the temperature probe and I suspect the probe and that is a do it yourself job.

The oven temperature sensor on your Kenmore range is a one-piece unit that mounts to the rear oven wall with a mounting plate. The sensor is not difficult to change. You will need to dismantle the rear panel from the oven to access the mounting plate. Most appliance repair shops will have replacement sensors. It is a good idea to take the old sensor with you along with the model number of your oven. This way you will be sure to get the correct replacement sensor for your oven.

  • Unplug the Kenmore oven power cord from the wall outlet. Move the oven range away from the wall so that you can access the back of the unit. (Ask a friend to assist you to move the oven. if necessary.) The oven may use an anti-tip bracket on one of the rear legs. Push the oven toward the back wall to release the leg from the bracket in the floor. Tilt the back of the oven toward you, and pull the oven forward.


  • Remove the screws that secure the back panel to the oven with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the back panel away from the unit and set the panel out of the work area.

  • 3

    Locate the mounting plate for the oven temperature sensor on the upper right side of the back of the oven. There will be a single wire coming from the back of the mounting plate and the wire mounts to a clip.

  • 4

    Follow the wire to the connector on the other end. Pull the connector on the wire to disconnect the wire from the wiring harness.

  • 5

    Remove the two screws that secure the mounting plate to the rear of the oven with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the temperature sensor straight out of the oven. Unclip the sensor wire from the mounting clip.

  • 6

    Take the oven temperature sensor to an appliance repair facility to purchase a replacement. Insert the sensor end of the temperature sensor through the hole in the back of the oven. Slide the sensor all the way until the sensor mounting plate is flush against the oven. Secure the sensor with the two mounting screws.

  • 7

    Connect the sensor wire to the connector by pushing the connector until it locks in place. Snap the wire inside the retaining clip.

  • 8

    Place the back panel back over the rear of the oven and secure the panel with the retaining screws. Slide the Kenmore oven back into its working position and plug the power cord into the wall outlet.

    I HAVE A AMANA SINGLE WALL OVEN THE ELEMENT SPARKED AT THE BACK OF THE WALL. I PURCHASED A NEWW ELEMENT AND WHENITOOK THE OLD ONE OUT THERE WAS NO WIRE TERMINALS AT THE ENDS OF THE PLUG IN END OF THE...


    when it burnt off it fell somewhere between the oven chamber and the back panel.once finding it,its just a matter of splicing a new wire terminal end and attaching it to the element. The problem lies in thats its a built in wall oven and may be needed to be removed from the cabinet to find and repair this wire. Depending how tight it fits into the cabinet it may not come out easily and even break the wood around the cabinet. which of course you could face in pulling it out to replace it with a new oven. ONe thing to keep in mind is that all wall ovens are slightly different in size and the replacement oven needs to be pretty close to the size of existing one or the cabinet will need to cut or filled in so their wont be a gap left when new one is smaller leaving a gap in cabinet up to 2 inches on either top or side walls

    Hi my rbs305 heaters not working?


    Yes, there is one for both units together. It's in the back of the oven, and you will need to remove the oven from the cabinet to get to the fuse. Turn off the power to the oven first - the fuse is connected to a live wire L2. To get to the mounting screws you'll need to remove left&right trim pieces: open the oven door and you'll see the screws on the trim pieces, they are near the door base. Remove screws and remove trim pieces. The mounting screws are in front of you. The oven is HEAVY, and you'll need to secure it somehow while working on it. The fuse is on the back wall, and looks like a disc, attached with 2 screws, has 2 terminals with 2 or 3 wires coming to them. One of the wires will be red in color. If there is no continuity between the fuse contacts - replace. Good luck.

    0 Check if there is a hinge stop bracket located at the hinge point of entry on the oven, in that case remove it.
    1 remove the oven door by pulling it up and removing from the the hinges. If glass is broken , then secure glass with tape. Have a table with a cloth on top ready to lay the door.

    I have a microwave oven that I need to take out.


    These are mounted thru the cabinet above. there should be two bolts which you need to remove in the cabinet abobe. remove these while you have help holding the unit. it will not drop but is kind of hinged on the wall (a lip sits on a bracket on the wall) After removing the two bolts tip the unit forward and lift off the bracket on the back wall.Don't forget to unplug it and pull cord thru cabinet as well Good luck...

    Wall Oven


    Hello zultar777,
    The oven will fit however it will stick out a few inches beyond the front of the cabinet. If that looks ok to you, then go for it.... Is ther any way you can open up the wall behind the oven to allow the new oven to recess in deeper? You may want to investiaget that option. If the wall behind the stove is a non- weight bearing wall..you should be able to cut it opne and remove a section of the wall studs.. also..check to see if the new oven uses any mounting tabs to lock it in place.. if it does and these are close to the front of the oven, you may have to jury rig something to secure the oven.. It may or may not use them thou so check with the manufacturer..
    Good Luck
    Regards,
    Rick
