I need a parts diagram to replace the right front surface heating element of a Kenmore range, Model 629-45775

Does the element have continuity? if so, it will be the element switch that needs replacement... Generally, the radiant element will be held on by two screws and a steel plate, note the wiring before removing the old part. Definitely remove power to the machine before doing anything inside of it... Kenmore Range Stove Oven Surface Element Switch WP7403P239 60

How to light a wood stove fire
Stove Help & Advice Home

There are many ways to light a fire in a wood stove. There is no one right way to do it and I am sure that all the stove owners out there will have their own individual ways of lighting fires that have developed over the years.

This is one way to light a woodburner. Ensure that the stove firebox is not full of ash - remove ash if necessary using a suitable metal container. If the stove is a multifuel stove where the only air supply is from beneath the stove grate then you will need to make sure that the grate is clear from ash and that the ashpan is empty (or at least that the ash in the ashpan is not obstructing the air flow to the fire).

Open the bottom air vents of the stove and open the flue damper if you have one. Some people use firelighters but personally I think that they smell bad and are uneccessary.

Start with some pieces of newspaper and scrunch them into loose balls. Some people tie them into knots or other shapes which is fine as well. I have tried this and it takes much longer than just scrunching the paper into balls.
I use about 8 full sheets of newspaper to light the fire. It is possible to use much less paper, but if there is no need to conserve your newspaper supply then my opinion is that you might as well be assured that the fire will light by using a little bit extra. Pile the balls of newspaper in the centre of the firebox.
Get some kindling. If you do not have some already prepared then use dry seasoned pieces of firewood. Softwoods or light hardwoods are best so pine, beech, or ash would be fine. Use a hatchet to chop the wood into some small pieces roughly 10mm square. The sizes do not have to be very precise and I would not recommend measuring each bit! Lay around 6 small pieces on top of the newspaper in different directions - rather like the game pickup sticks. The idea is that air and flames should be able to get to each piece of wood. Now lay a few larger 30mm and 40mm square pieces on top.

Light the newspaper in a couple of places at the bottom and when they are going close the door of the stove.

Once the wood has caught alight and the fire is going well inside the stove you can put some larger pieces of wood into the firebox. Place them gently on top of the fire. Do not fill the firebox with wood - I would recommend burning around 3-4 large pieces of wood at a time. At this stage you can turn the air supply down a little but aim to maintain good flames whilst not letting the fire smoulder.

If you have air vents at the top of the stove then close down the air vents at the bottom and open those at the top. You may need to do this gradually as the fire develops.

A novel way of lighting a fire is in a top-down direction. You start with the bigger pieces of wood, then on top of them put the smaller pieces of kindling and on top of that lay some newspaper balls. Everything is done in the same way as in the bottom-up method discussed above but just in reverse order. Light the newspaper and the fire will work it's way down. Surprisingly this is a remarkably good way of lighting a fire - why not give it a try.

If you are still having troubles lighting your fire, you can always purchase a Phoenix firelighter. No newspaper or kindling is required and can have your stove roaring away in 2 minutes. The Phoenix Firelighter has revolutionised lighting of solid fuel fires whether it be wood for coal and only costs 1p per fire.

Things not to do

Do not use paraffin, ethanol, petrol or similar to help you light a stove. Here is an article about someone who did
Do not leave the stove unattended whilst it is being lit, especially if you have cracked the door or ash pan open to give it that little boost of air.

We have just had a wood burner stove fitted at some cost and we seem to have rather a lot of smoke smell in the room we thought with a stove this wood eliminate this . .

You won't be able to eliminate all smoke odors with any woodburning system that I am aware of. On a new installation it's possible that part of the smell is coming from light oil coatimg on stove from manufacturer burning off. I would also check setting on damper,and make sure chimney is clean. On manual damper I set them at full open at start. Then when I have a good hot fire going I shut mine down to 3/4. I would do some trial and error to find what works the best for you. I hope this helps. Thanks

Hello, I'm having problems getting a new gas fire fitted in my rental property. I have been quoted at £763. I already have a coal effect gas fire on the wall (no fire place) with a flue and obviously...

Older fires have an exhaust flue and get their air supply from the well ventilated room in which they're fitted. Balanced flue fires are the correct choice for rooms which lack sufficient fresh air ventilation. They have a flue which draws in outside air necessary for combustion whilst also acting as an exhaust for the combustion products. To work the appliance must be completely sealed so that no air is drawn from the room; the pressure of the incoming air and the pressure of the outgoing exhaust is equal so the flue is described as balanced.

The lack of a requirement for fresh air ventilation means that less energy is used; open outside vents let heat out as whilst allowing fresh air to enter.

Balanced flue appliances which exit directly through an exterior wall should cost very little more to fit than a regular appliance: the only additional cost may be in blocking up the old flue outlet and creating a new one but this rarely takes more than half an hour. A sealing collar is fitted to the outside of the flue (included in the flue kit) so there may be additional costs in hiring a ladder (or even erecting scaffolding) if you're higher than the ground floor.

Budget-level balanced flue fires typically cost between £350-£500 and the fitting charge may be fair depending upon your property, but it's also worryingly vague. A properly qualified and experienced gas fitter should be able to give you a precise quote and will already possess all of the tools needed to fit a new flue.

Also, ensure that you have your landlord's written permission to fit the new fire. If you don't then the landlord can claim that you have damaged the property and demand that you restore the property to original condition when you leave. If you get permission then you can also expect your landlord to insist that when you leave the property you do not take the new fire with you and that you supply an original copy of the gas fitter's installation certificate. Without this the landlord is within his/her rights to commission a safety inspection at your expense. Note that subsequent annual gas safety checks are required to be carried out by the landlord at his/her expense as per normal.

Distant needed around a woodburner stove in a fire place.

This type of outdoor fireplace is only designed for outdoor use. If you are thinking of using it indoors, I would not suggest it. The exhaust flume if not made to be used on the inside of a house. It should only be used outdoors with ample space around it to avoid touching patio furniture, grills, etc.

You will need to install a flue liner ( i know its a nuisance) to allow the products of combustion to escape as quickly and as safely as possible.

If you installed a gas appliance without a liner, due to the temperature of the flue gases (lower than solid fuel) the emissions would struggle to exit via the flue terminal.

If you install the appliance following the manufacturers instructions, you cannot go wrong. The other recommendation is get a 'Gas Safe' engineer to carry out the commssioning/testing.(house insurance void if not certified)

I hope this helps.

Motor for Eureka upright model 2315, new in 1977

If the motor is obsolete which it appears to be, have you considered repair?

Write my shop at, with enough information on the failure mode we can get you a close estimate, some of these older vacuums just cannot be beat, for performance, power, etc, We traditionally do not do retail work, but with the current conditions, and woodburning stove blowers rendering perfectly good stoves into land fills, and replacement costs of over $3000,. we have repaired many blowers and fire eyes from $50.00 to $159.00, it all depends on the degree of damage, but we are trying our hardest to salvage some very nice older equipment, let us know, references or see me at Will Babbitt
