Oven shelve falls

I have a kenmore electric range,after using the self clean, my shelves will fall down off the little ridge. It seems that all of a sudden the shelves are too narrow. What has happened? This is very dangereous, when I move something on the shelve during cooking the shelve has fallen to the next shelve.Kenmore model #65612.

You are right, this is very dangerous. It is possible that your oven walls expanded, but honestly, I've never heard of this before, but this is what it sounds like!! I would call Sears right away and have them come out and check it. If the walls did expand, you have a defective oven and they should recall that model. I'd really love to hear the outcome of this complaint, so please let me know how everything turns out for you. And you better get it repaired before Thanksgiving. Have a great day!

Do you have the shelves going in the right way? Just have to ask. If so then yes your interior stove walls expanded but I've never heard of this.

How do I get the lubrication called white grease back in my oven racks on Fisher & Paykel oB30 model? There were left in the oven during self clean months ago. Thank you.


You can use a mixture of 1/2 cup white vinegar, 1/2 cup baking soda, 3 cups water. Mix all the ingredients together and coat the entire inside of your oven with it. After 5 min scrub the mixture off and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Don't forget to clean the heating element at the top. That helps with cleaning the racks or discoloration. You can try scrubbing the mixture with a toothbrush into discolored areas.

White lithium has a drip temperature of 190 to 220 °C (370 to 430 °F). It is a lubricant used on hinges. It adheres strongly to metal, resists water, is non-corrosive, and resists heat. If from a spray can, the propellant smells strongly and is highly flameable and definitely is not something you want to breathe. Definitely air out the area.

It can be acquired from Ace Hardware. Home Depot, or Amazon, among many other sources. It is sometimes referred to as Lithium soap.

I don't know how to clean the oven


Hello OTCHENASH...

Make & Model would be really really really helpful here!!!

if It's a NEW STYLE self cleaning oven... read the new manual.
or
if It's a OLD STYLE self cleaning oven... read the old manual.

It makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE...

Any advice here could fly right in the face of what you
owners manual dictates

You TYPICALLY remove the shelves.. and prep the interior with a warm sponge... to pick of loose particles.

Sets the controls for clean... return WELL after cool down.
Make sure the interior surface is cool to the touch... and
ONLY THEN :
Clean up the ash with a damp sponge!

Clean and return the shelves... and you are good for your next mess.

If it is not SELF CLEANING... get out the HAZ-MAT suits..

Again... remove shelves food, etc.
Open windows... Read the CAUTIONS on the label...
Follow those directions VERY CLOSELY... Else...

Get dressed and go out and by a new oven.

Happy hunting!

Kenmore Electric Oven won't bake after using self-clean!


The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. The most common complaint I have had with built in ovens besides the element burning out, is the oven door locked shut. When I get to the house and I ask to tell me a little bit of whats going on the story always starts " well, I was using the self clean option" or some variation of the sort. Now comes the bad news, you fall under the catagory of damaged electronics. The control has been damaged and I wouldn't doubt if the sensor as well.The part number for the control is WB50T10056 and cost about 108.20. The sensor part number is going to be WB21X5301 and cost about 94.00 On the second part I would call my local parts distributor and as if there is a sub part for it and self yourself about 50 bucks or so. Sorry, and good luck.

Can I clean a TruTemp oven with soap and water without ruining it?


Hi,

Yes you could clean it.

Check few details :-

t the bottom of this post you will find the web address for your ranges manual and the self clean system is in side this manual.

How to self clean

If your model has a door latch, never force the latch handle. Forcing the handle will damage the door lock mechanism.
The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.
Before a Clean Cycle
For the first self-clean cycle, we recommend
venting your kitchen with an open window
or using a ventilation fan or hood.
Remove any broiler pan, broiler grid, all
cookware, probe and any aluminum foil
from the oven—they cannot withstand the
high cleaning temperatures.
NOTE:
If your oven is equipped with nickel oven
shelves, remove them before you begin
the self-clean cycle.

If your oven is equipped with gray
porcelain-coated oven shelves, they may
be left in the oven during the self-clean
cycle.
Soil on the front frame of the range and
outside the gasket on the door will need to
be cleaned by hand. Clean these areas with
hot water, soap-filled scouring pads or
cleansers such as Soft Scrub®. Rinse well
with clean water and dry.
Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass
material of the oven door gasket cannot
withstand abrasion. It is essential for the
gasket to remain intact. If you notice it
becoming worn or frayed, replace it.
Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven
bottom.
Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in
place and the oven light is off.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds
is extremely sensitive to the fumes given
off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to another well ventilated
room.

NOTE: Use caution when opening the upper
oven after the self-clean cycle has ended.
The oven may still be hot.


How to Set the Upper Oven for Cleaning
On models with Gas/Control Lockout,
touch and hold the Gas/Control Lockout
pad for 3 seconds to turn it off.
NOTE: The surface burners must be turned
off prior to the self-clean start time.
If your model has a latch, latch the door.
Touch the Self Clean pad.
Using the number pads, enter the
desired clean time, if a time other than
4 hours is needed.
Clean cycle time is normally 4 hours. You can
change the clean time to any time between
3 hours and 5 hours, depending on how dirty
your oven is.
Touch the Start pad.
On models without a door latch, the door
locks automatically. The display will show
the clean time remaining. It will not be
possible to open the oven door until the
temperature drops below the lock
temperature and the LOCKED DOOR
light goes off.
The oven shuts off automatically when the
clean cycle is complete.
When the LOCKED DOOR light is off,
slide the latch handle to the left as far
as it will go and open the door. If your
range does not have a latch, the door
will unlock automatically.
The words LOCK DOOR will flash and
the oven control will signal if you set
the clean cycle and forget to close the
oven door or forget to latch the door
on models with a latch.
To stop a clean cycle, touch the Clear/Off
pad. When the LOCKED DOOR light goes
off, indicating the oven has cooled below
the locking temperature, unlatch the door
(on models with a latch) and open the door
The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.

How to Delay the Start of Cleaning
Make sure the clock shows the correct time
of day.
On models with Gas/Control Lockout,
touch and hold the Gas/Control Lockout
pad for 3 seconds to turn it off.
NOTE: The surface burners must be turned
off prior to the self-clean start time.
If your model has a latch, latch
the door.
Touch the Self Clean pad.
Using the number pads, enter the
desired clean time.
Touch the Delay Start pad. The earliest
start time you can set will appear in the
display.
Using the number pads, enter the time
of day you want the clean cycle
to start.
Touch the Start pad.
On models without a door latch, the door
locks automatically. The display will show the
start time. It will not be possible to open the
oven door until the temperature drops below
the lock temperature and the LOCKED DOOR
light goes off.
The oven shuts off automatically when the
clean cycle is complete.
When the LOCKED DOOR light is off,
slide the latch handle to the left as far
as it will go and open the door. If your
range does not have a latch, the door
will unlock automatically.
The words LOCK DOOR will flash and the
oven control will signal if you set the clean
cycle and forget to close the oven door or
forget to latch the door on models with
a latch.
To stop a clean cycle, touch the Clear/Off
pad
. When the LOCKED DOOR light goes
off, indicating the oven has cooled below
the locking temperature, unlatch the door
(on models with a latch) and open the door.


After a Clean Cycle
You may notice some white ash in the oven.
Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the
oven cools.
If white spots remain, remove them with a
soap-filled scouring pad and rinse thoroughly
with a vinegar and water mixture.
These deposits are usually a salt residue
that cannot be removed by the clean cycle.
If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle,
repeat the cycle.
You cannot set the oven for cooking until
the oven is cool enough for the door to
unlock.
While the oven is self-cleaning, you can
touch the Clock pad to display the time
of day. To return to the clean countdown,
touch the Cooking Time pad.
If the shelves become hard to slide, apply a
small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil
to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the
oven shelves with the paper towel.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Kenmore oven


Is this an electronic control oven...touch pads to set temp? May have a bad ERC. Electronic Range Control. Also check oven sensor. This is steel rod in oven in back wall near top on left or right. Check ohms from the rear where it connects to harness. Disconnect at harness and measure resistance of sensor. Most are around 1.1k.
