Question about Kitchen Ranges
Last Summer we bought a Kenmore double oven electric stove, model #60003 from Sears and there is staining in between the glass of the oven doors now, which I would like to remove. They look like drips coming from the top inside the two pieces of glass that have dried up.
After calling the service department today, since it is still under warranty; they told me that it is a cosmetic problem, caused by moisture while cooking getting past the gaskets and that it is not a warranty problem.
I would like to know how difficult it would be for me to take the doors apart to clean in there and if anyone would have a diagram of the door parts, so I would have some idea on what I was doing? From checking online it sounds like it is a common problem with all stoves and with other makes, some are a nightmare to put back together again:-(!
Thanks for your help and advice.
I had the same problem with my Kenmore elite. Also told they would not cover it under the warrenty. Seems like alot have this issue with these inner glass panels.
It is a nightmare to remove the glass yourself.
But before you go and pay $150 for a service tech, try this:
Under the oven door there are large vents. If you remove the bottom drawer, you can get better access to them. Or you can remove the oven door entirely and lay it on a blanket...this is not that hard to do.
Buy a bottle cleaner brush with an extra long handle.
Tightly tie a sock around this and spray all over it with Windex. Push thru the vents and wipe, wipe, wipe.
It might take awhile to get it all clean, but it works.
You will need a long handle though..and something flexible. So that bottle cleaner brush works well.
I did it about 6 months ago and worked great.
Unfortunately, just recently I cleaned my oven after allt he holiday cooking spills.
And voila...tons of dark streaks running down the inner glass.
So I will do the windex trick again.
They do need to come up with something better considering the costs of these ovens!!

I have same problem. Called Sears (I had extended warranty) and the tech came out and cleaned for me. He said it is a problem and Sears will do 1 free cleaning. He recommended not having anything drippy drip in there (duh), and I will be covering the holes whenever I use a spray cleaner. Bad design I say!
