Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a 3 year old Kenmore range. There are openings at the top of the oven door. While cleaning, some soapy water went into one of these openings and left water dribble marks. How do I get inside the door to erase these unsightly marks?

You'll have to remove and disassemble the door to clean the back side of the glass.

Open the door slightly. It should hold itself slightly ajar. Then lift the door straight up and off the hinges. Lay the door on a floor, table or flat countertop with a towel or rug protecting the door. The screws holding the door together will be on the bottom, top, and sides. Sometimes there are screws on the inside, holding the door handle and outer glass. Take care to notice how it's assembled, as getting it back together is sometimes tricky. By the way, it's best to lift the door by the sides, not by the handle!

Good luck!

I have a Kenmore Elite double oven, model 790.48123801.(4 years old). My wife attempted to operate the self-cleaning feature and 29 seconds later an F90 error message appeared, the oven began to beep


Oven door latch error code. The oven door latched but the control board did not receive a signal that the door was latched.
The only time that the latch is used is during the cleaning cycle.

    Failure Codes


    The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

    Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

    Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

    Can the things that sit on top of the gas burners be put in the electric oven and be clean with the oven cleaning setting?


    No. The self clean temperature (about 900°F) will burn the paint off, and may deform the grates. They are cast, but could still be damaged. Spray them with oven cleaner, then soak them in hot soapy water, brush them with a good stiff scrub brush and rinse thoroughly.

    Self cleaning oven instructions


    you can google it or just push the clean button and it will most likely default to 3 hours and all you have to do is push start and after it is done wipe out the ashes with warm soapy water DO NOT USE OVEN CLEANER as this will destroy the finish of the self clean cavity

    Self cleaning oven


    It may have sliders inside the oven door .Open the door and look at each side for metal slide plates that when pulled upward they seal off the glass for self cleaning. If you dont have those ,I just wasted alot of typing.
