SOURCE: My daughter wants to replace an old electric

Hello. The good news is that the power is already there for the old cook top. What she will find however is that the old cook top may be hardwired where as the new slide in range will require a receptacle mounted to the wall. This is 220 volt electricity so my recommendation is to have an electrician do this part of the job. That said, if you get back to me I will talk you through any and all parts of this job safely. Typically, depending upon your locale, the cost of having an electrician do this work is in the 100-250 range depending on how many trips are required to get it all done. Regarding the wall oven, once again, you are dealing with 220 volts. Be sure to turn off the circuit breaker, or remove the correct fuse, before doing any work.

SOURCE: how do you unlock a kenmore elite cooktop?

You can do this by:
Check the oven display to see whether the screen says "LOC." When "LOC" is displayed, the oven lock is activated and the door cannot be opened. You need to make sure it is locked so you do not mistakenly lock the door.

  • 2 Press and hold the "Stop" button on the oven control panel until "LOC" disappears from the display. Some oven models have a button marked "Oven Lock," which should be used instead of the "Stop" button.
  • Lock the oven again by pressing and holding the "Stop" or "Oven Lock" button until "LOC" appears in the display

    SOURCE: kenmore cooktop range , oven does not heat, but

    It could be a faulty switch, or a control panel. I would check the wiring first to make sure that everything is connected before I spent any money on it.

    How do I unlock the cooktops on Kenmore Elite Electric Range model #C970-440935

    Clear the lock mechanism -- as indicated by the DOOR LOC light -- by pressing and holding in the oven door light switch for 20 to 30 seconds. While the switch is depressed, the latch motor will gradually withdraw the lock, allowing you to open your oven door.

    Keys on the oven are not working so I can not start oven bake

    Thanks for posting to Fixya I will be helping you today. You have posted that you have a Kenmore Elite 44173 electric cooktop with a problem. However, you also mention your are having trouble with the oven not working. This post maybe categorized wrong but I will try to answer you question for both a range and oven control.

    Sometimes on a cooktop customers will lockout the controls on accident while cleaning. Usually there is a button on the control that you hold for 4 seconds +/- and there is a little simbol of a padlock next to it or you might have to check the owners manual.

    Lastly, Ranges may also have a lock out feature that the customer must press 4 seconds too unlock. On select models controls may also be locked out by putting their oven into sabbath mode. Usually the display will indicate a "SAB" to alert that this feature has been set.

    *In general the above instructions should help if your unit is locked out.

    Happy Holidays!
