Question about Ovens

1 Answer

I just bought a house with a Kenmore Elite gas range with oven (some limited convection ability, slide-out model). Sears told me that the oven was made by Frigidaire. There are three racks in the oven, each 22 1/2 inches wide. A rack fits on the top shelf inside the oven. No racks fit on the lower four shelves in the oven. They are not wide enough and just fall down. I have bought replacement racks using the oven model number (Kenmore claims the originals are not made anymore and offers a substitute product, which I bought) and the same thing happens -- racks fall down and are not wide enough. I pulled racks from used ovens which measure 22 3/4 inches or 23 inches wide (which appears to be the width inside the oven -- I measured). The racks do not fit horizontally through the oven opening. If I tilt the racks to get them into the oven, there is not enough space between the vertical shelves to fit them horizontally in the oven. If the oven has warped and if I install a new liner into the oven, will my racks fit in the oven? Any ideas as to the cause of the problem (less important) or the solution to this problem (most important)? Please help! My oven is completely non-useable in its current state. Thanks.

In my experience with ovens once it's warped you are best to just replace the whole oven

SOURCE: Oven racks don't fit anymore.

This is very strange... I know the racks in our oven ONLY fit one way and it is NOT obvious which way is right. We have taken them out and found they would not go in and we finally turned them over and end for end and they work. It is hard to remember how these things go in as it is not something we do everyday. Try upside down and end for end... It is UNLIKELY they have deformed or that the cavity has changed shape or size.

How do I override the sabbath feature on the elite dual fuel range?


since each model and each manufacturer operating procedures are different, it is best to read the instruction direct from your owners operating instruction booklet that came with the unit. If you don't have one, you can usually order one from sears parts direct for your specific model.

Kenmore Elite Gas Oven f1 message


Hi

Error code F1 means that an error with the keypad has occurred. Usually it happens due to loose ribbon cable on the keypad or the electronic control assembly itself going bad. To resolve this issue first, disconnect the power to unit and then gain access to the back of the clock assembly (Electronic Range Control/ERC). Now unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC, it would be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide and make sure that the cable is not broken and nothing is shorted on the keypad. After this is done insert the cable back and then plug the unit back to check. If the error is still there then the electronic control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Ignitor for oven comes on but gas release cuilds up before oven ignites causing a voom


I have a Kenmore Gas Range, model 72503. #1 problem-the orficies were not installed properly; #2 problem-when I turn the top burners on, gas comes out before the ignitor comes on. I called Sears, they sent someone who said that the burners can't be adjusted. I feel this is very dangerous. This is a new 2011 model, made for Sears by Frigidaire. Who should I contact about this problem. Sears say it is out of their hands. Help!

Kenmore oven model# 790.79383401 door not closing


Do the hinges come out with the door or does the door slip off the hinges? If the hinges are on the door then there is no adjustment if not there should be an adjustment but you may have to pull the range out to properly adjust if it is a built in range. Also check the door lock.
