Question about Kenmore 79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore 36275980891 range. The support handle has broken. I know how to get the door out of the oven but what do I need to take apart to get to the screw which is holding the other half of the broken support handle? TIA.

Check for screws along the edges of the door,, these should release the front panel from the door itself.

Elite range

This pertains to model 790 Kenmore ranges, comprised of an oven door handle that is mounted on the door's glass.

Be careful when tightening the oven's door handle. Even slightly over tightening would likely result in the glass shuttering, because tightening the screws pulls in and thus presses the handle against the glass. This is a problematic design in my opinion. I'd rather give up on a couple inches in the width of the glass, than be unable to adequately tighten the screws fastening the handle and risk shattering the glass.

Oven Handle drops off of door

Whatever keeps the handle on is not working. Most oven handles are held on by a screw on each end. It can be tightened from the inside of the oven door. If you don't see the screws, you may have to take the door apart. Buy some longer screws if needed.

Kenmore Electric Range - Door handle Original bolts installed at the factory came loose and dislodged from the door handle.... no problems but this... i can not screw the handle back myself.. i tried......

We had the same problem. We had some tough epoxy that we squirted into the bolt holes, then screwed the bolts in. It took two of us, one to hold the door together and one to screw in the bolts. We didn't use the oven until the epoxy set, but now we no longer have a problem with the door falling apart every time we open the oven door!

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.

Exterior glass trim on Kenmore Electric Range 880-5981

While waiting for someone else to answer my question, I fiddled around with the door parts. I managed to reassemble them! Here's how:

1. start with the glass panel. Slide the glass panel into the slot at the bottom of the front door frame on the stove.

2. next attach the handle. There are slots on the bottom of the handle that fit into the top of the glass panel. Slide the handle slots into the top of the glass panel.

3. screw the handle onto the oven door using the predrilled holes on the inside face of the oven door.

4. last, attach each of the two side trim strips. Slide the top of each strip into the bottom of the handle on each side of the oven door. Then slightly bend the strip outwards so that they are short enough to fit into the bottom slot of the oven door frame on each side of the glass panel.
