How to remove stove top

I am trying to replace my ceran glass maintop. This is a Kenmore range part # 316282939. I found instructions and it says to remove the screw that secures the green ground wire to the range. Then remove the screw next to it securing the wiring harness strap. I don't see any green ground wire? So I am stuck not able to remove this maintop. Can you help?

SOURCE: Would this work or burn

This should work just fine as long as the breaker it is going to is at least 20 amps as this is the amount of amps that both fans would be drawing at once if the were both on. The 12/2 wire should be plenty to supply the 20 amps needed for the fans.

Yes it can be replaced. Using your model number at an on line parts store you can see diagrams and parts list and order it. Here are a few.

Turns out one of the unique problems with your type of ignition system is that the spark module is susceptible to noise on the electrical line.

According to the manufacturer Service pointer, the solution to this problem is to install the ferrite bead kit to reduce line interference (electrical noise) from the direct spark ignition module.

You should also make sure there is nothing wrong with the wall outlet and the circuit breaker for the range,

SOURCE: i removed an outdoor light

If your old light was all plastic, as I suspect it was, there was nothing to ground. Your new light evidently is all or part metal. Fasten all the green/copper wires together and make sure the metal bar inside, if one, is also connected. Use a wire nut to make the connections. My preference is to attach a separate wire to the metal mount bar and then fasten all three ground wires together using the wire nut.

I hope this helps you ... Thank you for your interest in

Replacing the ceran glass maintop

Actually if you've removed the 2 or 3 screws at the front (underside) of the cooktop, you can lift up the front. Prop it up with a board, and then remove the 4 screws that hold the 2 brackets that hold the 4 elements to the cooktop. Now pull the cooktop forward a bit, and you should see a green ground wire attached to the back of the cooktop. If not, then don't worry about it! Just pull that cooktop up and off the range. You will need to transfer the 2 tabs in the back of the cooktop, and the silver steel bar located at the front of the top to the new cooktop. Then reverse the process to install the new cooktop and re-fasten the elements to it.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

You are not going to like this, and you did not give the model number of your unit. But glass replacement tops, will range from $600.00 to $800.00 just for the glass top. and their is not a way to make repairs, because it is a special glass.

Good morning we are staying in a house of friends who are on holiday. I would like to clean the Bosch Ceran top but I am not sure which cleaning stuff I can use. Is the use of CIF creamer allowed with a...

Harry -
I would first see if your friend has a special ceramic cleaner in his or her cleaning supplies cupboard. If you can't find a ceramic cleaner, the best thing you can do is use hot water to clean the surface. All-purpose cleaners (like Cif) can damage the ceramic glass so it's best to avoid using them.
Also, look in your friend's cleaning supplies cupboard for a metal razor scraper. Use the razor scraper to scrape off any burnt-on food or spills. Do this by holding the scraper at approximately a 30 degrees angle to the cooktop while wearing an oven mitt to protect your hands. If no scraper is available, don't resort to a knife or abrasive sponge as these could damage the ceramic glass.
When the cooking surface is cool, apply a few dabs of the ceramic cleaner (if you found it) in each burner area and work the cleaning cream over the cooktop surface with a damp paper towel. Then wipe down with water and dry with a clean paper towel.
If no ceramic glass cleaner is available, it is sufficient to wipe down with hot water and a soft sponge. Never use abrasive sponges or scouring pads on ceramic glass cooktops. Also watch out for corrosive cleaners such as over sprays, cleaners containing chlorine or ammonia and stain removers - these will just further damage the surface.
For a list of approved CERAN cleaners see here:

How do I clean the inside glass on the door - GE Profile JVM1870

I have a Kenmore with similar issues.
Model 665.61639100
Anyway, good luck with this. Hope someone has an answer for you (and me).
Mine has a open slot on the top front of the door. Kinda like a double plate window execpt for the opening in front. Why is this there? I don't know. Weird design. But it leaves for the possibilty of liquid to splash in there leaving it hard to clean (like impossible).

I'm thinking I have to completely remove and disect the door.

66993 pizza oven microwave oven combo pizza oven not heating error code f1 microwave part works

Hello, please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacement of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric)
F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 911 Series (General Electric/Roper)
F0-F1-FF = Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes- 665 Series (Whirlpool)
F1-E0 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E1 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E2 U/L ERC Errors - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E3 Fuel Type Fail

Kill power 30 seconds-Cancel-Start/Enter-5 seconds-Should see “E” for electric-
“9” for gas-If code changes again-replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 790 Series Electronic Oven Control (Frigidaire)
F1 = Shorted Touch Pad = Electronic Range Control (EOC) Internal check sum error.
Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Kill power 30 seconds - if error returns - replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

How do you remove a microwave above the stove

Take the glass tray out and unplug it. Remove the 2 or three phillips screws in the top of the cabinet going into the micro. They should be towards the front. Hold up on it while removing screws. When all screws are out, let it tilt forward and lift it up off of the hooks. Some require help, so be carefull and put blankets on your stove to set it on when it first comes out.
