Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Oven light remains on when door is closed.

My Kenmore free standing range oven door has always felt like it did not completely close. Now the light stays on when the door is closed. Is there an adjustment that a do-it-yourselfer can make?

This range was probably made by Whirlpool or one of its dozen divisions so it probably has some slop in the hinge mounting to correct for their so-so manufacturing. You may have to somewhat disassemble it to get to the hinge screws though.

Can oven door be removed? Will light in oven turn on when door is closed?


Nearly always yes, very easily. Well they were put on weren't they :>)

For drop down doors, open half way and lift the door off upwards.

Now I re-read the questions, you talk about a 'light going off when the door is closed'. Now I think you are talking 'microwave ovens? The answer is firmly NO where a microwave is concerned.

Range Oven lights are always operated by a switch so you have to option of when to switch on and off. Useful for seeing how food is cooking without opening the door and useful for see inside the oven when you are cleaning it with the door open.

I have a Kitchen Aid range model KGST307GBS0. The


The door light switch was broken (upper right face of oven). The door switch is automatically activated when the door is opened to turn on the oven light. When the door is closed the switch is depressed to turn off the light. It seems the switch position is detected by the oven and if it is in the open position it will not allow the oven to function properly (reach temperature or allow the cleaning cycle to run). I temporarily locked the broken switch in the closed position, which allows the oven to function. A new switch was ordered for replacement.

Range door will not seal properly.


Place a hammer handle between the door and the frame at the hinges..
Push on the door, carefully.
This usually works to re-seat the door hinges.

Kenmore Oven Door Lock Stuck Out


We had this same problem. We found that pushing the censor button/switch on the upper left rim of the oven's inside moved the lock and made it capable to unlock, or purchase a pizza pizzaz.
