Question about Kenmore 79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range
This is a recommended two-person repair job. Please read through the instructions carefully before starting the repairs, and follow any safety recommendations.
1. UNPLUG the range before servicing. There are dangerous voltages still present even with burners turned off.
2. If the old cook top is broken, you will need to get rid of a much of the glass shards as you can and thoroughly vacuum the area around the oven box. Use extreme care when handling broken glass. Wear safety glasses and gloves.
3. There are a few screws located under the front edge of the cook top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Remove these screws and the top should lift up. If the range is not equipped with any kind of hinge supports, the top will have to be propped up.
4.On some ranges, there is a disconnect plug for the surface element wiring harness. If you have this feature, Follow these steps:
Unplug the cook top and leave the elements in place.
Place the whole cook top assembly face-down on a soft surface (like some old towels, or a blanket).
Remove the surface element assembly leaving all the elements wired together.
Place the new cook top face down in the same manner and lay the surface element with wiring harness directly on to it and screw in place.
Install the new cook top back on the range and you are DONE.
5. If the wiring harness does NOT unplug, follow these steps:
There are a series of screws holding the element assemblies in place. Leave these assemblies wired together for ease of replacing. It is recommended that a second person holds the assemblies in place to support the wires until all the screws have been removed.
Lay the intact element assembly, with wires still connected, on top of the oven box. Handle the surface elements with care. They are very fragile. Care also must be taken not to handle the element coils or ceramic material. Try to handle from the underside of the element only. Oil from your hands can cause damage to the element and/or premature failure.
If you have to remove the elements, individually, make sure you write down how the wires were connected to ensure you reconnect them in the right order. Make sure you also take note of the numbering scheme on the element and make sure you place the mounting brackets in the same holes that they came out of. Use care when screwing into the new cook top. CAUTION: The screw holes are usually painted and a little force may be required to thread the screws. Do not apply too much pressure on the glass, or you can damage it.
Prop the new cook top in place and install the surface element assembly from underneath. A helpful hint: Use some duct tape to hold the assembly until you have screwed it back into place. Don't forget to remove the duct tape when completed.
Lower the new cook top into place and secure with screws.

Unscrew and remove the front panel of your washer or other appliance by
removing the screws using a standard size screwdriver. Use an adjustable wrench
to loosen and remove the bolts securing the top cover to the washer turning
them counter clockwise. Lift the top cover by hand.
Remove the three eye bolts underneath the washer and set them aside.
Undo the drive belt by shimmying it off of the pulley using your hands.
Lift the front of the washer off the ground just enough to place a
4-by-4 piece of wood under the frame and under the pulley. This will allow you
to reach underneath the washer or appliance to replace the damper pads.
Remove the old damper pads using rubbing alcohol or other solvent and
remove them from the machine. Use a utility knife or razor to assist in
removing the old pads. Use a clean cloth to wipe away residue that may prevent
the new pads from forming a strong bond once applied.
Attach new damper pads to the machine base using a rubber adhesive.
Position the pads 3/32-inch under the center of the base, leaving 5/8-inch
between each damper pad. Apply adhesive to the pads and attach them to the
base. Allow several minutes to dry.
Apply a small amount of silicone grease to the bottom of the pads using
a clean cloth. Return the drive belt and panels back on the washer or other
