Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have an 11 month old kenmore stove with black enamel top. I can not get the area around burners clean. It appears to be fused to the top. I have used every cleaner and it won't come off. Went to outlet store today and. Almost all their used stoves have the same problem. Even after bring professionally cleaned I have spoke to everyone and no one can help. Although it appears to be a wide spread problem. I do not want to scratch it. Thank you. I am heartsick. I spent a lot of money on these appliances and now this.

I think one thing that happens especially with a black top the heat from the burners when pots and pans are used spreads down onto the burner section and because its black it is hotter than a white top. I think you will find the color itself is burnt and not just dirty.. In asking some one they feel I am right and there is no way it will look new again. Looks nice for a while but not for long. Sorry

Soak the black stove caps in 1 part ammonia and 3 parts water. Let soak for several hours. I let it soak overnight. It should clean right up.

What are you using to clean the stove? Only cleaners made for ceran type tops should be used according to directions. Do not use enamel coated pans or glass pans on your cooktop.If you have a boil over, turn off the burner and change to a different burner immediately. Clean up the spill completely before cooking on that burner again. Use a flat edge razor to clean tough residue. Your cooktop will look new for years to come, even with heavy use.

As far as the scratch, don't use abrasive cleaners on the top and only use pots and pans with flat bottoms. If you do use cast iron pans, never scoot them around on the top.

Yes, you can order just the enameled top that surrounds the burners,you will have to order it through Sears store or on line because the Kenmore product and parts are exclusively from Sears. Good luck!

How to remove burnt grease, fix lightly scratched black stovetop?


Hi, I assume we are talking about a flat glass top. First the bad news. using any abrasives will permanently scratch the glass hence the dull spot. You can however make it look a little better. Grease spots and the like can be removed with a flat razor blade scraper which needs to be held flat to avoid the corners making scratches. Use any good glass/ceramic cooktop cleaner ( which is the ONLY cleaner you should ever use ) (available in your local grocery diy store and some hardware stores). The cleaner is a thick liquid, put about a dime size drop on each burner area and use a paper towel to buff out the finish like waxing a car. Once it looks clean flip your paper towel over and shine the top to like new. Good Luck!

Cleaning area around burners


Try regular oven cleaner (not the overnight kind) . This will work if there are no aluminum or painted parts. Don't do this if the instruction manuel says not to.

Kenmore Elite Gas Stove


Will have to ask some basic questions first.  How old is the stove?  What is the entire model # from the sticker on the unit?  Is this LP or natural gas?  Also, make sure that the orifices in the center of the burners are clean (can use a safety pin or paper clip to poke them a few times to clean).  Make sure that the black caps are on top of the burners and seated properly or they will not lite.  Let me know what you find.
