Question about Kitchen Ranges

2 Answers

After a $360 bill to replace two igniters in my 12 year-old Kenmore self-cleaning single wall oven —the broiler unit still does not work —I'm told that the safety valve will need to be replaced now (an additional $400). I'm wondering whether I should do it myself. It's located in a constricted place and it looks as if the regulator would need to be removed as well. Checking for gas leaks because of the clumsy location is also a concern.

Wow. that is way too much money to have to spend on your oven. I like Kenmores but not that much. Have you considered purchasing a new oven?

If you are not completely comfortable with checking for gas leaks and changing the regulator then I have to recommend you talk to a repair serivice. That is too dangerous to work on yourself unless you have experience.

Good luck,

CH

    Unless your oven costs more than 2 000 brand new I recommend you go and buy a new one. or replace the part yourself is you wish.

Our new home has a GE XL44 gas stove the top works fine but when I use the oven it smokes and sets off the smoke alarms.The stove is over 3 years old Any ideas before I have to call the repairman in?


A gas stove shouldn't smoke. Is is clean? There is some grease that has eluded your cleaning efforts of interior surface?

Here are some tips that may help you resolve this problem:

Check the broiler flame. If the broiler flame is not adjusted properly, you could be creating soot from the burner flame.

Position the items that your are broiling lower so that they do not splatter grease up onto the broiler baffle.

Use a broiler pan that will drain grease and drippings down below the top surface.

Broiling many items will naturally produce some smoke. If you have the oven door closed when broiling then the only place that the smoke can go is up and out of the oven vent. If you partially open the oven door, some of the smoke will come out of the door opening.

You may have residue on the top walls of the inner oven cavity. Do you have self-clean feature on your range to clean the oven? Follow all of the procedures in your owner's manual to properly clean the oven using the self-clean cycle. This may clear out any undetected residue that could be causing excessive smoke during broiling.

Hello, Can't find model/serial number. Older Tappan custom gas stove. Burners work but oven does not. Told it has electric ignition that could be problem. Where to find it, how to remove, where to get...


Serial number labels are usually located in any one of a number of places -

Under the cooktop in one of the corners
Inside the oven door frame (not on the door)
Behind the bottom drawer pullout on the oven, left hand side
Oven back.

If this unit is anything less than 20 years old, there will be a label somewhere.

Reply back you findings and I can give you more information as to how to repair, and we can identify part numbers. You might also try www.repairclinic.com and see if you can drill down through parts when only knowing the manufacturer.
