    I have the same problem - the oven door will not close tightly, allowing heat to escape which is becoming very dangerous and is extremely inefficient.  How do I fix this problem?

You should feel the door pull closed when you as you lift it and get near the closed position.

There is some spring linkage associated with the hinge pins at the bottom sides of the oven.

I cannot find the oven you indicated, but I did find exploded views and parts list of the topic post oven on the SearsPartsDirect website.

Ice in bottom of side by side Kenmore freezer side


Make sure the doors are closed tight - freezer door may open a crack when frig side closes.

If door is tight, make sure the door gasket makes a tight seal. Often they need to be cleaned (409 is my favorite) or they get twisted. They also sometimes come away from the door in spots. Pay attention to the bottom seal which you usually don't notice in daily use.

Will a plain fan convection/microwave ROAST/BAKE as well as a "true" convection that has an extra heating element and fan convection/microwave


Most likely the Kenmore is actually made by Sharp. Most of the combination microwave/convection ovens are. I have one with a "Wolf" name on it, and it roasts/bakes very well.

Oven on lock. How do you unlock


most likely the door locked due to an overheat situation. It's a safety feature on most ovens made today. It may be caused by a fan motor not running properly thus allowing area above oven cavity to sense extreme temperature, blockage in air flow pattern, or a bad temperature control.
Whatever the cause, it's best to have a tech take care of this issue for you to prevent danger to you and your family.

New Kenmore elite range blows cold air from oven vent when top burners are on. Is this normal


That sounds a bit unusual.... Does the fan come on when you turn on the oven on bake? How about on broil? How about on self-clean. If it comes on in all those settings, then it may be working as designed. If NOT, they there may be a crossed wire, or you may have a malfunctioning control.

We have a Kenmore Elite refrigerator that smells like dead fish when the motor runs (we have never put fish in the refrigerator)- what is the problem and is it something that we can fix?


Sounds like water has gotten into the foam insulation or the unit was left closed for a period of time with no power (not running). You may want to try putting a box of baking soda inside the frig and freezer. Place the boxes to the back on one of the shelves as close to the fans as possible. If that doesn't work you may have to shut it down and leave the doors open for a week with baking soda still inside or 2 to 3 days with a fan forcing air into it constantly still with baking soda inside, of course the food inside would have to be removed.

No. It sounds as if the door springs have gotten weak. With the complete model number there are several reputable appliance parts companies on line that you can order from. Hope this helps. Rick

Oven door will not shut tight at top


The door is not tight per say. The seal is hat determines if it is properly closed. Check to see if the seal is tight all the way around(use a strip of paper to check consistency). If it is not sealing the hinges are tweeked and need replacing.
