Kenmore oven door

I've got a Sears Kenmore electric stove and the ovendoor doesn't close, the light stays on, and it loses enough heat thatwhen we use it I have to bungee cord it shut. I have tryed to adjust it but there doen't seem to be an user friendly or outside adjustment that will solve the problem, I'm am very mechanical so don't hesitate to suggest the proper fix if it involves tearing it apart. Thanx in advance

Re: kenmore oven door

There is no adjustment for the door.
If the door is not bent or warped then you need a new hinge kit. The part number is 5304445529. It includes new hinges and the recepticles that go in the cabinet. There was a service bulletin a while back about this problem and a few models were being repaired free of charge. I don't have the letter on this computer to tell you if yours falls in the free repair catagory but will try to find it and let you know.

Kenmore electric range model 790 door lock light flashing

Hi, When door locks, This is when oven is in self clean mode. After the heat has cooled down the door should release again. If this does not work try turning the power off to the stove (breaker) This should reset the stove to normal. Call a repair man if this continues. Good luck.

Oven broiler will not go off., when i close oven

This is a control board issue. The contacts on the broiler relay may have welded closed. You options are to replace the controller, or disable the broiler relay output. The controller is the most expensive part of the range. The model numbers shown do not match a Kenmore stove, so I couldn't give you a better answer. Check on the back of the unit for a model number and go to Sears Parts site to find what you need. If the oven works but not the broiler you may be able to disconnect the output from the card and continue to use the rest of the range. I did this while waiting for my part to arrive. The Sears store should have a wiring diagram if you can't find the one that is usually found on the stove. Mine was in an envelope on the back of the unit, though I have seen them attached to the backside of the rear cover. Mine was just a quick connect and I pulled it loose, taped the end up and continued to use the rest of the range.

Ovendoor not closing for tight seal...

You should feel the door pull closed when you as you lift it and get near the closed position.

There is some spring linkage associated with the hinge pins at the bottom sides of the oven.

I cannot find the oven you indicated, but I did find exploded views and parts list of the topic post oven on the SearsPartsDirect website.

Oven pilot light won't light

Part of the problem was my own ignorance about this particular Kenmore gas oven. It doesn't even have a pilot light. Instead, there is an electric heating element close to the burner which gets so hot that it ignites the gas. It seems that the heating element also doubles as a temperature sensor, so that it opens the gas valve only when the heating element is hot enough to ignite the gas. This heating element, called the "ignitor", no longer gets hot in my oven even though there is 120VAC applied to it when the oven knob is turned on. Therefore, the ignitor is defective. I ordered a new one on-line from "Appliance Parts of America" for $31.50 plus shipping, and this should fix the problem. If it does NOT, I'll add to this post.
