Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a kenmore warm and ready drawer glass top oven (model # 790.96413400) that's about 6 years old. one of the burner (small one in the rear) no longer works and another one (in front that has single/dual heat feature) now only heats at high dual. what would be the most likely problem and how much would it be for parts only (doing the repair myself) or including the labor? i'm trying to decide whether it would be better to replace the whole thing based on the cost of the repair. thanks.

The burner replacement is very easy and cheap, you can get replacement at the big harware stores or sears, they simply pull out and new ones slide in. There may be some retaining screws involved. As far as the switch goes for the front burner, it needs replaced as well. The burner controls are like dimmer switches for lights, they change the currunt going to the burner, when a burner only works on high that means the switch has gone bad. These are also easy to replace, usually a nut that holds it in oplace behing the panel and a couple of wires. Depending on where you get the parts, the should run between $15.00 and 25.00 for the burner, and $20.00 -$50.00 on the switch. I am not seeing this model number for some reason so I am ball parking these prices. Add another $60.00 to $100.00 for labor if you call a service person. But these are not hard to do, google the phrase, how to replace a burner on an electric range, there are instructions there and you will see how easy it is to do.

Kenmore warm ready drawer oven


I don't know about the burner... but the oven needs a safety valve (or the igniter) The safety valve is about $140. some people would rather replace the whole range than pay for the part and the service call.

OUR HOME WE BOUGHT CAME WITH A RANGE, BUT NO MANUAL, WHERE CAN I GET A COPY OF THE MANUAL FOR THIS RANGE?


You will need to find the model number to get a manual. http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ provides a search box for looking up the manuals. For GE ranges, the model number could be in several places: on the frame behind the warming or storage drawer or kickplate, on the left leg behind the warming or storage drawer or kickplate, on the frame of the oven behind the door, under the left front surface burner, or under the lift-up cook-top at the center or on the right hand side.

If you clean the oven with non-abrasive products and avoid the spray on oven cleaners, you are unlikely to damage the surfaces/range even without the manual for your range. (Use glass cleaners for glass cook-top.) Warm water mixed with a mild detergent is useful for most spills. Avoid cleaning the seal around the oven door; damaging the seal may cause major problems.

I hope this helps.

I have a Kenmore Elite Kitchen stove top (one with the burners underneath a glass plate). Model number: 911 99004990. I believe it was purchased close to or around March of 2000. The problem I have with...


I have the same problem with ours! Our 2 small burners don't work at all and the 2 larger ones only work bright red hot. I called Sears and they said there is no recall on my particular model, but there are tons of recalls on other models. The problem is with the venting from the oven doing damage to the wiring (shorting them out maybe?). We're trying to find someone who knows anything about this and if we can get it fixed as our stove is only 3 years old.

Large burner won't shut off


This stove uses a special switch that turns one way for the large burner and the other way for the smaller burner. I was not aware that this had a seperate simmer burner on it, however. I think you using the wrong term there.

This is not computer controlled--the only computer on it should be the oven switch. I would assume that you need to replace the switch for the dual-size burner. If you take your model number in to Sears, or log onto Sears dot com, you should be able to get to the PARTS DIRECT web site on the computer, and if they ever sold that model you should be able to pull up a parts breakdown with expanded drawing and part numbers and prices. You should be able to buy the part from them. The part should be virtually the same as ANY recent model Frigidaire or Kenmore stove with the same style burner. This should be a very easy repair for you to make yourself, assuming that you know a little about working with electricity--remember, this stove USES 220 VOLTS!

Check out all of the wiring coming into the switch and going from the switch to the burner to be sure that there is not a short!

If you have one of the older smooth surface stoves, where the burners are part of the ceramic top, all bets are off, but anything you bought new in the last half-dozen years, should have a separate burner underneath a glass top, and the repair should be simple. Even with the older stove, it is still likely the switch, and should be no problem.

Dual element burner on glasstop range...inner element stays on


It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.

I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.

Hope this helps.

Kenmore Stove Glass top


Hello,

I have a Kenmore glass stove, not sure what the model number is I don't have it with me right now. Yesterday, the timer started to beep and F1 started to flash in the display. The stove top is working, but the oven does not. The only way I can get the timer to stop beeping is to unplug the stove.

Any suggestions as to what is going on with this stove. It's only 4 years old.

Thanks
