Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Where can I get some metal leveling legs for my Maytag gas stove? The plastic ones keep getting busted off.

The black plastic legs that came on the stove are cheap. They bust off everytime we pull the stove out for cleaning.

I don't think you can get metal leveling legs for that range, unless you can improvise something.

SOURCE: Maytag MGR6775 Gas stove. One igniter not working.

Clean the burner with a wire brush around where the ignitor is. it needs a proper ground to ignite. When you turn the burner on do you hear a click click click? If so this should solve the problem.

SOURCE: how to clean the cast iron grates and stove top of a gas range

glass cleaner WITH ammonia, and a small toothbrush works well. mop up with an old washcloth, rinsing often. for pieces which have gummy residue, and which can be removed to the sink for soap and water finsing afterwards, try GooGone.

SOURCE: Maytag gemini gas stove. Ignitor problems

My experience with this is that it occurs when moisture gets into the ignitor area and shorts out the open and causes the spark. It stops after it drys out.

This is very non-techinical and I will defer if there is a deeper solution.

How to level my kitchenaid stove


sounds like back legs are up too high, or front is dipping. If back legs are at the appropriate level, then you should be able to adjust the front legs. If no adjustments can be made that way, then you might have to shim under front legs. If this is a drop in stove top, then you need to pull it out of the hole, and loosen corner screws, and push top into the correct position. Don't forget to re-tighten the corner screws. Also, if this is a range and the top is not level, then you need to shift the top forward and you should feel it drop into place. There is a slot on either side of the frame that the top should slide onto.

My Frigidaire 30" gas stove is not leveled from


Hello,
If you remove the bottom of the range, where the pan storage drawer is, you will see the leveling legs there, and you can use those to level the machine. Don't use pliers if you can avoid it, find an adjustable wrench or an open end wrench, the ones on mine are 7/16th. You can use a measuring cup filled to a line level, and place it on the stove as you move the legs, then you can better adjust them. Do so until the water levels off at the line you filled to. A final test will be to place a flat pan and only drop a couple drops onto it, and see if this runs to one side or the other.
Hope this helps, Please rate and comment, Thank You

My range top is not excatly level how do you level a glass top range?


Most ranges have leveling legs. Remove the storage drawer and look to see if the legs have threads. Then twist a leg clockwise to raise one corner or counterclockwise to lower it. (It could be reversed - it's been awhile since I leveled a stove.) Adjust as needed to get the stove level front to back and side to side.

BTW: the parts diagram for the 95002 chassis is here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-66595002100/0582/0124111/P0101022/00003?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= .

I hope this helps.

I have 4 -wire 3 phase 220 vac. which is one leg of 240vac, 2 legs of 120vac, and one ground wire On the Stove terminal block I have from left to right on the terminal block at them rear of stove Black,...


First of all I would assume you don't have three phase. Three phase is defined as 208v, 120/240, 240/480 or straight 480v and is used commercially.

Most likely you have a single phase service coming into your house unless you have an elevator or something that would require 3 phase.

A single phase service consist of 2 - 120v legs = 240v and one neutral, if you put a meter across both 120v legs you'll get around 240v and if you place your meter across one leg and your neutral you'll get 120v (not exact but in the range of 124v) Your range will have usually three connectors, red, black and white. So if you run #6 3c with ground, you will have red, black, white and green (its either green or bare). Connect the colors accordingly. You could even have a range that would work off what they call range cable it's legal in most states, which consist of 2 black wires incased in a bare neutral strand and wraped in usually gray insulation, electrical codes vary state to state county to county. The range should have a manual that would tell you what the rating of the electric stove is, such as 40 or 50 amps. 40amp is commonly #8 wire and 50amp is usually #6. I recommend site unseen in using the #6 wire.

How do you level the stove top


The bottom front of the range has two little legs with hex bottoms. Lift or tilt back the range until you're able to slide a shim (I used a metal ruler) under one of the little legs. Then, unscrew the other leg until it meets the ground. Remove the shim and unscrew the remaining leg until it meets the ground. Check for level and repeat until you get it right. I just did this just 5 minutes ago and if I can do it anyone can.

I need metal replacement stove knobs.


I was able to find online some metal knobs that MIGHT work, but the prices ranged from $30 to 60 EACH, and I needed 5 - too costly for me!
The following 3 plastic knobs will work on your Jenn Air range, model JGR8875QDS. By "work" I mean they will fit your burner controls, operate the burners just like the factory knobs, and the markings on the knobs for "Off" "Lite" and "Hi" will be in the correct positions, similar to the factory knobs. (Exception: The last knob listed has markings somewhat different than the Jenn Air knobs.)

The following knobs do NOT look like your factory knobs - all three are made from black plastic rather than the (fake) silver metal look of the (plastic) OEM knobs. What I cannot tell you is if the following knobs will be more durable than the factory knobs - but then it's hard to imagine how they could be much worse.

-------- Burner control knobs known to work on the Jenn Air JGR8875QDS gas range --------

1. Whirlpool part number 74008850, made for some Amana gas ranges, will fit the Jenn Air. RepairClinic.com calls it part #1035119, and PartsSelect.com calls Item #PS2086316; it sells for $6-7 (USD). You can see a photo by entering the appropriate part number in the search box of either of the two websites mentioned above. The Amana knob is about a quarter-inch larger in diameter than the OEM knobs, but that does not cause any problems. Of the several knobs I tried this is the only one that tells me what it's made from - "PBT" - or polybutylene terephtalate, a thermoplastic which has a melting point of 430 degrees F and a maximum utilization temperature of 330 F.

2. Whirlpool part number 74009094, made for some Maytag gas ranges will also fit the Jenn Air. RepairClinic.com calls it #1035342, and PartsSelect.com calls it #PS2086544. It sells for about $9 on both sites. You can see it here: 
www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-74009094-%3d%3d
Like the Amana knob, the Maytag knob is about a quarter-inch larger than the OEM Jenn Air knob.

3. A third knob worth considering is available from AmericanStoveParts.com for $7 each. The front of the knob looks much like their OEM Replica Burner Knob 1104-B (but don't order #1104-B - it won't fit). The knob that will fit the Jenn Air is AmericanStoveParts #1214-025-B. You will have to order it by phone or email because it is not shown on their website. (As of October 2009, none of the knobs shown on AmericanStoveParts.com will fit the Jenn Air.) 

Notice the markings on the 1214-025-B are not quite like the Jenn Air markings, with the "HI" and the "LITE" positions being reversed. Also, the 1214-025-B knob I received did not have the white dot at the "OFF" position nor the white ring around the periphery as shown in the photo of the 1104B knob. The total diameter of the the 1214-025-B is 2" - the same as the factory Jenn Air knobs.

While I don't think the front of 1214-025-B looks quite as nice as the Amana or Maytag knobs, the back of the knob appears to be much more robust than on the others. The extra plastic MAY make this one more durable. 
-------------
I have installed the Amana knobs (#1), and I will report back if it proves unsatisfactory.

Top of Gemini range


Hello patricialc,
Welcome,

You said, you have the stainless Gemini range and the top is black. I cannot get the top clean. It looks like the paint or the surface is "bubbled". I have tried EVERYTHING and it always looks like there is grease spatters on the top. I have all Maytag appliances and I am VERY disappointed with this stove. If I could, I would take it back...but I keep trying. I let the Maytag stove I had go. It was made in the late '50's, so I could 'update'. What a mistake!!!

The other option is to order a new glass top and have it replaced.
No abrasives!!

Let me know how you do.
Huuum
Please remember to leave a rating!
