Hi,
Are you sure that the spud is screwed down all the way...also make sure that the regulator spring is in right and if it is an adjustable one you can back the screw out till the flames go to normal...also open the air shutter all the way open...

CAN a ZANUSSI gas cooker be converted to utilize NG ? Without affecting its programs and controls ?


usually any gas cooker can be converted as long as the gas jets are changed to the right size. they also have to be the right fitting. it would involve a lot of work as you will need to get into the nitty gritty of the gas lines inside the cooker and if you make a mistake it can cost to get it fixed.

Cant remove kenmore over the range from 1984


The unit has two long installation screws located behind the upper grill. To remove the grill there are 4 small #2 Phillips screws holding it on. After loosening the installation screws, the unit tilts down and you lift the back free from a hanging plate attached to the wall.

I have a kenmore elite range model number 790 46809 991 and the burner on both the left and right are acting up. They both show that a burner is on on the control panel (not surface indicator) and the...


Hello gralexander,

The problem you are experencing is with you control switches. The cheapest place i can find the switch is from searsparts direct. Here is a link to the webpage http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-79046809991/0583/0124160/P0050380/00001?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=79046809991

You will see a diagram in the top left side of the page use it to locate the switches that are bad and order them from sears. You may also need the burners to check them you need a continutity tester.

1. Remove the burner from the socket
2. Take your test and touch one probe to each side of the burner.
3. If you have continunity then the burners are good
4. If not you will have to order burners as well.


Changing the switches:

1. Unplug the range
2. Remove the back panel where the switches are.
3. Remove the knob from the front
4. Remove the screws from the switch you are replacing (Due one at a time)
5. Move the wires from the switch to the corresponding terminal on the new switch
6. Replace the switch and screw in place
7. Do the other switch
8. Reinstall the cover on the back of the unit
9. Plug in and try

Doing all of the above steps should fix the problem that you are having. Please make sure that you install L1 to L1 and L2 to L2 on the new switch other wise you will cross wire it and the rest of the switches will short and need to be replaced.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com. If you have any other questions please post back to this thread and I will do my best to help you with your Range problem

When one of the gas hobs is on ,it does not burn with a blue flame but a more yellow one .also black soot forms under the burner plate.it is on lpg


Have to adjust the piolot lights for the amount of gas coming out. U have too much gas coming out(yellow flame). On older gas ranges, there was a small screw between the piolot light & burners that had to be adjusted. (if this is a older model) have to turn the screw just a little at a time, till ur flame returns to blue on ur burners. Hope this helps.

I have an old model #12 gas Fryer and I want to convert it to propane. What do I need to do?


Unless the original manufacturer offers a conversion kit, do not attempt this yourself. It requires changing the orifice in the regulator, but requires someone experienced and certified with gas appliances to get the correct one. Experimenting in this case could be very dangerous.

66993 pizza oven microwave oven combo pizza oven not heating error code f1 microwave part works


Hello, please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacement of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric)
F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 911 Series (General Electric/Roper)
F0-F1-FF = Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes- 665 Series (Whirlpool)
F1-E0 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E1 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E2 U/L ERC Errors - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E3 Fuel Type Fail

Kill power 30 seconds-Cancel-Start/Enter-5 seconds-Should see “E” for electric-
“9” for gas-If code changes again-replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 790 Series Electronic Oven Control (Frigidaire)
F1 = Shorted Touch Pad = Electronic Range Control (EOC) Internal check sum error.
Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Kill power 30 seconds - if error returns - replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Thanks
