Kenmore Electric Stove - Gourmet Edition

Freestanding stove with 4 coil burners and a griddle on top. It has 2 side-by-side ovens. Regular size oven on the right and a small broiler oven on the left. Large oven doesn't get hot. Heating element checks ok. Bad thermostat? Need parts source because Sears has almost nothing for this. Need approximate manufacture date. Really don't want to replace it. Great Stove!

    I have te Kenmore version 790.9462990 and I have an large oven that heats about 200 degrees hotter than the thermo is set for. I replaced the thermostat and it still gets 200 degrees hotter in the main oven.

    I really thought replacing the thermostat would do he trick but no..

    I have te Kenmore model 790.9462990 also. I lost the owners manual and can't figure out how to get the self cleaning to work.

  • HawkHacienda Mar 15, 2009

    I too have lost the owner's manual to my Kenmore 790.9464990. It needs to be self-cleaned in the worst sort of way! Also the auto-start no longer works. The timer works but the Auto-start does not turn the over on. Problem is with the standard size oven.

Hello! I have this stove in black where something went bad inside last week (made like a crunching sound). It still runs but seems to only be getting 110 electricity. Clock and lights work and the large oven stays warm. Everything was working fine until this happened. Could be an inexpensive fix- I willing to sell it for repair or parts if you are interested. The griddle alone sells for $170.00 through Sears. Cynthia

Thanks for the numbers.
The 628 in the model# tells us it was built by Frigidaire. The date code in the serial number is less clear because it is a different code than their current serial number designations that have been in use since the mid '80's. The style of the stove makes me think late '70's, I would guess '77 or '78 from the first 3 digits of the serial number.
The thermostat should be easy to check. If the broil function in the large oven works, the thermostat should be ok. It is a simple switch that should read closed across the contacts when you turn it to any temp setting when the oven is cool.

The power for the oven will also go through the selector switch which routes the power to different components depending on the setting.
The power also goes through switches in the clock that allow the timed bake and self clean functions to work.
If there is no wiring diagram in the stove, you will probably need one to diagnose the problem if the thermostat checks ok. I would suggest getting one while it is still available in case you need it in the future.
Once you have found out exactly which part you need, you should be able to use the Frigidaire part number from the parts list on the Sears site to track down a replacement part through a local appliance parts dealer. You may have to take the part to them to try to visually match up a replacement. Thermostats and selector switches are usually pretty generic in their operation between manufacturers, the problem lies in finding one that will mount to your control panel properly and that your knob will fit so that you can keep the same uniform look along your control panel.
Please post back with what you find out or if you have any questions.
Thanks/Mike

    sears.com shows the wiring diagram to still be available, prt# 3201592, $5.23. It is listed but not illustrated. You should be able to order it from sears or any frigidaire parts dealer.

I have a Hardwick propane stove, 4 burners and oven. The stovetop burners work fine (need a match), but now the oven does not ignite despite the pilot light working fine. I have brushed the pilot light...


Hello Patrick,

WHen you turn on the oven/broiler does the size of the polot ligh increase in size??
the way it is suppose to work is...thier a small free standing polot light and when ya turn on the oven the size of the pilot is suppose to increase and heat a little bulb that is connected to a wire that is mounted to the pilot burner and when that bulb heats up it will allow the main gas to flow into the oven(not pilot burner).

If the size of the pilot does not increase it could be caused by a clogged pilot burner. the way to determine that is TURN OFF GAS SUPPLY...disconnect gas line from pilot burner and turn on gas to unit, light that tube with it disconnected from pilot burner and turn oven on and see if size of flame drastically increases...if it does turn gas off and remove and replace pilot burner
if flame sizedoes not increase the problem is going to be the thermostat

If the pilot does increase and heats the bulb on the pilot burner the problem will be with the gas valve that,that bulb in the pilot burner accathes to is bad .

now chances of the thersostat still being available is very slim if the pilot burner is clogged and needs replaced they are still available their is 2 of them one has the mounting plate on the left and one is on the right.
here is what they look like

oldtech2332_148.jpgPart number for this one is 1898-021 notice how the mounting tab is on the right

oldtech2332_149.jpgthis one is pt# 1898-022 the tab is on the left

That when performing a quick search on google is pretty much all that still available teh thermostat (would need model number) is doubtful to find also a good chance the gas valve is also no longer available

Good luck,
GENE

Broiler works but oven won't light like it's not


Hello,
The first thing you want to check is if the small shutoff lever built into the appliance valve has been accidently closed. This appliance valve is either in the back of the unit or under the top near the back. When you converted the stove, you also had to convert this same appliance regulator by flipping the top. Look at it again and see if there is also a small lever on the outside of it. Flip it and see if you get gas to the oven. If that doesn't solve it, did you adjust the oven orifice down? Although some models do swap out the oven orifices, so be sure you used the correct size. Make sure you have enough air on the adjustable air shutter on the end of the burner tube at the orifice. Typically it should be open 1/2 to 3/4 of the way. Since it is a used stove, it may have a spiderweb or bug nest blocking the burner inside, so you may have to remove it to inspect it. Does the oven require a pilot? If it doesn't have electronic ignition, then a pilot has to be lit before the oven will light. If it does have electronic ignition, is it glowing orange at all? These things are a lot easier to trouble shoot when you're looking at it, so I'm just throwing out ideas for you to check. Hope this helps you. I'm a propane guy, so let me know if you need more assistance and I'll try to help you further! Douglas

Burners ignite but wont light


Are you on Natural Gas or LP?

If on LP, you may need to change the jets on the burners on top. Most times, when oven and broiler work and top doesn't, and you have spark, your jets are wrong size. Look on back of unit for a cardboard attached to unit, should have jets stuck to cardboard, if notgo to store where you bought unit and buy jets.

Broiler doesn't lite, no gas going to pilot


Most cases Broiler ignitor is out, after you turn on the Broiler, check the voltage on Broiler ignitor 2 wires, if you have approx. 110v, then change the ignitor, but you don't have 110v, then check Broiler safety valve and oven thermostat, but 90% of the time is the Broiler ignitor. Have fun.

My maytag gas oven model #MGR5755QDW makes a loud poof noise when first turned on. It doesn't do it all the time and it only happens when it is first lights.


You are getting a delayed ignition fom the oven burner. Either the ports on the burner near the ignitor are clogged or you have a weak oven ignitor. part # 12400035 @ $70.00

Can grill be safely converted to griddle on Thermador PRG486GLUS?


http://www.instawares.com/add-griddle-top-2.133-1002.0.7.htm

try this.

If it doesnt fit your specs. then i would suggest u find a thermador parts place and begin to buy the parts for the griddle as replacement parts. find a model of the stove set up that you want and make a list of all the parts that go to the griddle attachment.

My guess is that the reason for the flat "No" on the retrofit was that griddles require a thermostat similar to the one on the oven and broilers do not. So if their is no room behind the face plate where the knob would go then you can't put in a griddle. The other issue might be that the burners for the griddle wont line up with the brackets that are holding up all the broiler burners now. The griddle burner looks exactly like the one from the over only smaller so it has to line up strait where a regular front and back burner have to line up offset. maybe since you have the broiler already that should not be an issue? Then the problem is finding the griddle top it self that is going to be spendy. I think the link i gave at the top is your best bet. good luck.

Frigidaire gas range oven won't come on


the oven ignitor needs replacing, this is the part that makes everything works, it's a glow coil in side the oven, nest to the burner, that is the electronic pilot, when it goes bad the safety valve, the one that sends gas to the oven will not open to light the oven burner.

Replacement Parts For Vintage Magic Chef stove


You probably have a 1940's model of Magic Chef. Check for the model number under the lid of the cook top on the upper right hand side of the stove. It should have the model number and the serial number, too. You will need both. The Old Applicance Club run by Jack Santoro is the place to go along with a site called "Antique gas stoves"in Georgia. Good luck with the world of vintage stoves.

Gaffers and Sattler vintage stove oven pilot 1956 W54 series similar problem


My mother had the same problem with her Gaffers-Sattler range. No one could figure out what was wrong with it. Her local new appliance repair people said to contact J.E.S. Enterprises, Inc at www.theoldapplianceclub.net. Whew; thank God for that tip. They knew exactly what the problem was and repaired the unit for her. The stove is running again like a workhorse! Here is their number - 805-643-3532.
