Question about Kenmore 79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Kenmore Model #79096 oven door falls off

I've been having the same problem since I bought this model in late 2005. I keep reattaching the handle but the screws barely reach it. This past week I was taking a pizza out of the oven and the whole thing came apart. The door separated and fell to the floor. I can't believe the glass didn't break. I called Sears and all they want to do is sell me more parts AND send a service person out! What's the solution?

SOURCE: Kenmore gas range model 790 door glass shattered, handle problem

We have the exact same problem. This design is totally unacceptable! Thank you for the suggestion of switching the handles as a temp fix (they don't appear to be exactly the same, but we'll give it a try). Has anyone found a permanent solution? This wasn't a 'cheap' range....we expected better craftsmanship.

SOURCE: Kenmore Electric Range - Door handle

This is absurd! I have the same problem with a Kenmore that I bought less than 5 years ago. I rarely use the oven, but the handle has fallen off twice in the past 8 months. The solution seems to be to BUY new parts--and of course they will be costly. Is this planned so the company and the service department can make money??

My oven door handle has come off at one side how do I reattach it?


Since we don't know the model number or see a picture, I will guess that the door is two parts and you probably have to separate them to get to the screw that attaches the handle.

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 665.16493300 door falls to floor when opening


Door springs are located at the left and right side of the door bottom. You will have to pull the unit a few inches from the installed location to see them. If broken, replace. If one slipped off, reattach.

Handle replacement


The door handle can easily be replaced on most microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:

This should be a very simple repair that you can easily perform yourself.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. You can refer to this illustration, if you like, to assist you as well:

Kenmore 721 microwave fan turns on by itself


I have the exact same problem with my Kenmore Microwave model 721 that we bought in October of 2005. The Fan will just randomly turn itself on even when we are not cooking. It has been doing this for the last few months and is starting to become more frequent. There is no way to turn it off except to unplug it for several hours.
Was there a recall for this defect ?

Kenmore mirowave # 72162643200 handle is broken


I have the exact same problem and the cost for a tech to replace the door is $80 less than buying a new one. They have to remove the unit from the cabinets and pull off the exterior box to unscrew the door hinge. Mine is only 3 years old. I also bought a new oven range. Never really use it. Decided it was time to use the self cleaning. It did not work. $280 to put a new board in. 4 months later I went to clean it and again it did not work. The f*^ing thing only cost $500. Decided Easy off will have to do. Kenmore s*&ks

As for the door... I very CAREFULLY used super glue/ gel and it did the job!

Sear's microwave falling apart


If this is and Over the Range micro, the exhaust fan needs to run ANYTIME the cooktop is on. They make things for quantity and not quality, so the plastic has little tolerance for heat. Running the fan, diminishes heat off the front of the unit. Also, the micro MUST be at leat 24" off the cooktop.

Kenmore locked


The www.managemyhome.com website has some troubleshooting options when the door wont unlock. Good luck. Also you can download the whole manual online it you have your model number. Mine was inside the drawer under the oven.

Kenmore Electric Range - Door handle


I had the same problem with my stove. I tried to replace, glue the srews and other things, but nothing really worked well. It's a shame that Kennmore has such a design flaw in their stoves, but did nothing to help their customers.

Here is the solution that worked for me:

Fix the thread with helicoils (these are inserts that create a new threat in the handle). You can find the instructions how to use the helicoils on Youtube.
I replaced the crews with new screws that fit to the helicoil threat and now the handle is safely secured.
