Anti-tip bracket for Amana ACF422GAW

Do you know about the lawsuit whereby Sears is supposed to install anti-tip brackets for many of the ranges it sold. I have an Amana Big Oven model ACF422 GAW. Now the manufacturer no longer makes the anti-tip bracket so what is Sears supposed to do about this? There must be another anti-tip bracket that will work just fine. It has taken from May until August for me to find out that the part is no longer being manufactured by Whirlpool/Amana.

I happen to be a real estate agent and I know this was a real issue in a recent sale and the sellers had to jump through hoops to find something that worked. I wasn't involved in it so I don't know how they found one, but I do not want this issue when I go to sell. I appreciate any answers you can give on this "hot" topic--get it? A cooktop, stove, hot....

Screw in a piece of wood or metal that stickes out a little ways horizontally across the back of the stove. Screw another piece of wood or metal onto the wall a tad bit higher then the one on the stove. Now the stove can't tip over and it'll be easier to manuver into place.

I have a General Electric auto pilotless ignition oven, model# jgcc58 eh5ad. when I turn on the bottom oven the igniter glows but the flames dont ignite. Can this be fixed by a modern igniter as this stove...


www.a-1appliance.com
FOR 45 YEARS OLD IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD ANY OTHER TROUBLES REPLACE THE IGNIGHTER AND YOU SHOULD BE IN GOOD SHAPE. A NEW IGNITER RUNS AROUND 75-80 DOLLERS.
THE IGNITER HAS TO GET HOT ENOUGH TO OPEN THE GAS VALVE, IF THE IGNITER IS FAILING OR WEAK THE OVEN WILL NOT LITE.

Yes, there is a bracket that should be mounted to the floor in the back. The back leg of stove slides into it. You can call any appliance parts outlet, give them your model number, and have it shipped to you if you wanted to do yourself otherwise a handyman should know how to do it.

Where and how to install anti tip bracket


The anti tip bracket is installed along the baseboard area BEHIND the range, so that one of the rear feet on the appliance will slide into it when pushed against the wall. Once installed, the rear foot of the range is slid into the bracket, holding the rear foot to the floor. This effectively prevents the range from tipping forward.

Installation instructions are included on page 3 of the Installation Manual that came with the appliance. If you no longer have a copy, you can obtain a replacement at managemylife.com. Just enter your model number under their "Manuals" link and you will find it listed in .pdf (Adobe) format. You can download or print a copy for FREE. For your convenience, here's a direct link:

http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/installation_guides/3001/MAYTAG-Free-Standing-Electric-L0502644?brand_name_search=mer5775q

Figure 3 shows an excellent illustration of how the bracket is to be installed.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do you install an over the range micro-wave, i can't seem to figure out how to insert the micro wave onto the bracket on the wall.I'm having trouble with the clearance from the cabinets above .


Use the template that came with the microwave to insure proper height of the wall bracket. If height is correct and you have drilled the three holes in the top cabinet, (one for power cord two for mounting bolts), the unit must be tipped forward (front lower than back) so the bottom can be hooked to the wall bracket. Once hooked, start the power cord throught he hole into the upper cabinet and the unit can be tilted upward to allow you to start the bolts that support the front of the unit. It is nice to have help with the weight of the microwave. If attempting alone, make sure that everything is within reach when you start and if possible pull the range and move it aside. Good luck.

Model 790 Glass Shatered


SEARS advised me 24AUG10 the screw per their Parts print is supposed to be 2 1/4 inches long. The reason our handles fall off is because the oven MFG installed many screws that were too short. Mine were 1 3/4 inches long. Keep in mind that this oven door is a sandwich, with the oven door glass trapped in there. There are compression spring brackets that when you screw the handle on, place pressure on the glass. If the screws are too short, you have to exert a lot of pressure just to get the treads to engage. When you tighten screws that are too short, excessive pressure is placed on the glass by those spring brackets. Many times the brackets actually bend. This is all due to the short screws that the mfg installed. To date, SEARS admits no accountablilty. I have sent them pictures of my 1 3/4 long screws the mfg installed! I explained to them in detail why the handles fall off and why the glass explodes. If they do not repsonde responsibly, then they are blatantly and purposely ignoring the issue. A Class action law suit may wake them up and also may be why the are dancing around this issue. Bad for us, but cheaper on them to wait to see if a suit is filed because this would be a huge recall.

How to replace the ceramic range top


you need to replace the glass top itself???that might be an expensive proposition.but heres the how to. theres 2 or3 screws along the front underside of main top. this will release the top enabling you to tip back and look underneath.not a hard job, just gonna take some patients. assuming you have the new top. its gonna be a matter of taking from one and installing on other. you will not have to undo any of the wires leading to the burner elements. instead undo the screws that are holding the elements up to the top . should be 2 brackets running lent gh of unit . undo the brackets and lay the elements down on the insulation . after removing both swap out glass and reinstall new . there will be multiple ***** holes on new glass for supporting brackets. look closely at old one for proper placement
