Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a 30 year old gas wall oven which I need to remove. Is there usually a flexible gas hose at the back of the oven which will allow me to pull the oven out onto the ground to close off the valve at the back, or do you need to get behind the oven before pulling it out? Cheers, Brett

My gas valve is not working. my igniter works at 120 volrs

Even though the ignitor glows it does not mean that it is working. It needs to pull X number of amps to allow the gas valve to open.
The ignitor is the first thing you need to replace.
This tip will help you to understand your problem.

Problem drying clothes

This is the classic symptom of "poor air flow". Another symptom you didn't mention (but I bet is happening) is that the top of the dryer gets VERY hot. OK, don't move your dryer yet... get a flashlight and look behind there. See the flexible vent connecting the dryer to the wall? It must have SMOOTH, FLOWING turns. No crushing allowed. If it's crushed/pinched, you found the problem. It's "choking" off the air flow... not allowing the hot air to escape and containing all of it in the dryer cabinet. If this is the problem, pull the dryer away from the wall about 8" and make sure the vent isn't pinched off anymore. Leave your dryer this far out, it'll ensure that this doesn't happen again. If the flexible vent is OK, there is a blockage in your house's internal dryer duct work somewhere. Turn the dryer on and go outside to where the exhaust is. Check air flow. Check the exhaust vent for debris (I've seen birds build nests in the outside exhaust, incubates the eggs...but your clothes won't get dry!). If your dryer location and the exhaust location are quite a distance (20' or more) from each other, you should hire a professional to come out and thoroughly clean it out for you. In this case, you should have this done once a year as part of routine Home maintenance. To test and verify my solution to this, you can remove the dryer vent from the wall and cover the end of it with a pair of old pantie hose. Then run the dryer as usual (the pantie hose will act as a secondary lint trap). You'll see that the dryer will be happy again and the clothes will dry in no time at all.

I have a Kenmore gas built in oven, model number 790.30179400. It's 5 years old. I just used the oven and it wouldn't turn off. It seemed to be hotter than the temperature I had it on. I have a fuse box in...

Usually F11 is a comunication error and the initial fix is to remove all power for 30 seconds then try it again.

The oven element that did not turn off is a sticking relay on the Electronic Range Control (ERC) board /clock timer that did not open the relay electrical contacts when the power was removed from the relay coil. Or there was an on the printed circuit board (PCB) fault in the ERC that allowed power to remain on the relay coil until you removed power by pulling the fuse.

The most probable cause below with the cheapest source being Sears Direct in 2nd link.

Thanks for using FixYa!

My kenmore oven needs a new ignioven tor. How do i remove the old one? Model No. 9117147810

Hello SHpall,

To get at the ignitor, you need to remove the shroud around it and that will allow you to get at the screws that hold it in place, etc.

First, make sure the power is turned off to your wall oven, at the breaker panel. Then you can remove the racks and get to the ignitor shroud at the back of the oven. Once you've got the shroud (cover) removed, you should be able to remove the screws that hold the ignitor in place and then carefully pull it and the wires out, so you can disconnect them from the oven's wiring harness.

Some models do not have connections at the back of the ignitor and you will have to remove the oven to gain access to it from the backside.
The bes thing to do is first check from the inside, as that's obviously the easiest to do without having to take the oven out of the installation location.

Reinstall the new replacement ignitor and reverse the above steps and you should be fine.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I bought a new sensor for my gas oven, Kenmore model 36272321002. Where is the sensor located and how do you change it?

which sensor is it? the temperature sensor is located on the back wall of the oven, towards the top. usually held on by a 1/4" or phillips screw (sometimes two). Be careful when pulling it out thru the oven wall because the wire leads are usually short. unplug the old, and plug in the new, carefully put it back and put the screw(s) back in. Sometimes the sensor goes in thru the back of the range and you must remove the back panel on the outside (usually a silver panel, be careful, they have sharp edges!).

Turn off the gas. Look in the front of the oven for mounting screws. Open the door and look inside the frame for mounting screws. Remove the mounting screws,slide the oven out carefully,it will be heavy. Unplug the cord.Disconnect the gas line. Set the oven aside in one piece.

After doing a self clean, the panel now flashes locked

thermal protector has caused lockout. happens w/ self clean a lot. it's a small thermostat device most likely on the rear of the oven. oven need to be pulled from wall to check/replace. you may have to open door w/a coat hanger if it's locked to get the door open to allow access to screws to allow removal of oven from wall if it's a built in. unplug it before doing anything. fuse is under back cover size of a bottle cap, 2 wires, should be "closed" normally. replace or spray w/freon to "reset" it.

How do you get a Jenn air oven out of the wall???

The JennAir website should have the installation manual for download. Go there, type on your model number, and it should come up.

Sometimes these ovens just get "stuck" in place, and take some easy levering to break free, or to help you find other fasteners.

How do you replace the thermostat?

You will need to pull the oven out of the wall and remove the back panel. The thermostat is located behind that panel and held in by two screws. Whirlpool makes a wire harness kit that can be installed which allows the fan to run longer preventing this problem from happening.
