Question about Kenmore Ovens

I bought a drop in range and there is an open space at the bottom where the range does not come as low as the older one. Is there a piece I can purchase to cover this opening?

The space at the bottom should be built up to support the bottom of the range. It should not support its entire weight on the counter top.

My tappen gas range oven locked up and I cannot open the dooI put theoven on to clean, low, it came on and locked up but won't work any more how can I open the door to get my skillits and range top parts...


First, you can try a power-cycle. Unplug or turn off at the circuit breaker for 30-seconds or so. It may reset itself. If not, the lock motor may have stopped functioning and the door will need to be released manually. The lock arm is in the center of the door near the top. Use a piece of stiff wire bent at 90-degrees to give approximately 4 inches that can be slid behind the door at the right side and drawn across toward the left side. With the "crook" hanging down behind the top of the door you should be able to snag the arm. Push gently in on the door while maintaining tension on the wire toward the left. Release the door when you feel the arm move and the door should open.

My electric Samsung oven will not hold a temperature setting, especially on the bake setting. The oven seems to preheat fine and then when you put the food in, obviously the temp will drop because you open...


After finding a cheap one on Craig's and reading the problems I decided to roll the dice and buy this range. It has the exact problem described above. The owner had replaced the control module and temp probe with no luck. I hooked up the range and sure enough it would come up to temperature (let's say 350) then dropped back to below 200 and never recovered. Lots of relay clicking but no heat. I unplugged it, took off the back and sure enough, one of the connections to the bottom burner was burnt and the wire was laying in the bottom of the range. I cut the bad part off of the wire, added a new high temp stainless terminal reconnected and viola', it works fine now. Wonderful range for practically nothing. It took about 20 minutes to repair and cost $2.00 for the new terminal. Piece of cake. Take a look inside before you call someone. These terminals Samsung used are cheap, not crimped properly etc.... hope this helps! I'll change them all out tomorrow.

I wish I had a solution for you...unfortunately I don't. However, if you know anywhere I might find a thermostat knob for this model I would be eternally grateful. I've been searching for 2 years for my mother. It's the knob with 5 settings (off, bake, broil, time-bake and clean).

Instructions to replace Jenn Air oven thermostat


To remove the control panel, open the oven door wide as possible. Remove the screws from the top of the CP and the screws from the bottom of the CP. Grasp the CP bu placing hands on the right and left sides of the panel, pull out and down to disengage. Depending on manufacture run you might need to lift up and out to diengage.
Have a cloth on the oven rack to lay the control on so you won't scratch the pretty facing. Once that is done you have easy access. Wear some rubber gloves doctor, this prevents harm to the electronics. Static discharge is a no no around expensive electronics. You can do this. Take your time. Piece of cake.
You will be able to check high limit cooling fan door latch and motors 9if applicable on your model) cool ain't it?

I removed the range door to clean oven. Now I


NOTE: The door removal pins you inserted must still






be in both sides of the door.






1.
Grasp the door on the sides with your fingers on






the front of the door and your thumbs on the






inside surface.






2.
Rest the hinge hanger so that it is flat (at the






bottom of the hinge hanger on the bottom of the






front frame slot).






3.
Position the door with the hinge hanger slots






almost parallel to the front frame.






4.
Push up and in until the hinge hanger slots






become fastened to the range. Lower the door






and rotate it slightly from the front to the back






until the slots are fully fastened. The hinge






hanger will be close to the bottom of the front






frame slot.






5.
Pull door open about halfway and remove the






door removal pins. Save door removal pins for






future use.






6.
Close the door.

Double oven,the top ovens lower heating eliment will not work-I have relaced it and tried the lower ovens eliment still nothing,the broiler(upper)eliment works fine?


There are some small relays on the circuit board in the area of the controls. These relays are undersized and normally fail shortly after the warranty period. If you are handy with electical work and a soldering iron you can replace the components on the board using standard items from Radio Shack. If not, then buy the circuit board but expect to pay a lot. I once fixed a friend's oven and broiler by putting a low voltage optical semiconductor relay from Radio Shack into the space of each failed mechanical relay. Then I used those to operate large 40A definite purpose contactors -- normally used in HVAC systems. This required addition of a 24vac power transformer. All of it fit easily into the space behind the control panel of her drop-in range. The beauty of the optical semiconductor relays is that they isolated the electrical system of the original circuit board from the additional parts I was supplying. This makes is easy for anyone who works on it later to see the nature of the upgrade/repair.

Hi,

I don't think it's a concern. This is a common inquiry I get from customers of all makes of gas stoves (even some electric). It's usually just the bottom panel of the oven, because it is a separate piece to the rest of the oven cavity when it's cooling down it will often "bang", "pop" or as you described, "click". from the metal twisting or expanding and contracting from the heat up and cool down process.

hope that helps :)

The ignitor is not allowing enough 'current flow' to open the valve. The ignitor , even if it glows, can be 'low current' to valve.
