Kenmore elite range storage drawer won't open or close

If your Kenmore Elite range storage drawer is stuck and won't open or close, there are a few troubleshooting steps you can try:
  1. Check for Obstructions: Inspect the area around the drawer to make sure there are no objects blocking its movement.
  2. Lubricate the Tracks: Sometimes, lack of lubrication can cause the drawer to stick. Apply a small amount of lubricant (such as WD-40) to the tracks or rollers to help them move more smoothly.
  3. Check for Damage: Look for any visible damage to the drawer or the tracks. If you notice any broken parts or bent tracks, they may need to be repaired or replaced.
  4. Try Gentle Force: Sometimes, gently pushing or pulling on the drawer while trying to open or close it can help dislodge it if it's stuck.
  5. Reset the Range: In some cases, resetting the range by unplugging it from the power source for a few minutes and then plugging it back in can help resolve issues with the drawer.
  6. Contact Customer Support: If none of the above steps work, it's possible that there may be a more serious issue with the drawer or the range itself. In this case, it's best to contact Kenmore customer support or a qualified technician for assistance.
Remember to always prioritize safety when troubleshooting appliances. If you're unsure about any steps or if the issue seems complex, it's best to seek professional help to avoid causing further damage or injury.

How do I cancel a delayed start when trying to use self clean on Kenmore oven 807189701 Rev B

Unplug the power and cancel it. Never Ever use the self clean feature. We see damage here every couple of weeks. The worst was a burned control board on an oven that all parts were obsolete, so the self clean cost a thousand bucks! Self-cleaning ovens bring the heat so you don't have to spend hours scrubbing. Traditional self-cleaning cycles heat the oven between 800°F and 900°F, helping turn soil and spills to a powdery ash you can then wipe away. They utilize only heat-no chemicals-and are built to withstand high temperatures. (Says Maytag who love selling elements, door locks and other parts),

Problem with kenmore elite gas range. Oven will not heat

It sounds like you may have a problem with the gas valve or the igniter in your Kenmore Elite gas range. The gas valve controls the flow of gas to the burner, and the igniter provides the spark to light the gas. If the glow plug is coming on but the gas is not igniting, it could be a problem with the igniter itself or the gas valve. The igniter may not be producing a strong enough spark to light the gas, or the gas valve may be clogged or malfunctioning, preventing the gas from flowing properly. You may want to have a professional technician take a look at your range to diagnose and fix the problem. It is important to have any gas appliance serviced by a qualified technician to ensure safe operation.

Kenmore gas range slow to preheat, takes 1 hour to get to temp.

There are several potential causes for a gas range being slow to preheat. Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try:
  1. Check the igniter: While the igniter may be coming on, it may not be getting hot enough to ignite the gas. Make sure the igniter is clean and free from any debris or corrosion. If it is dirty, gently clean it with a soft cloth. If the igniter is damaged or not getting hot enough, it may need to be replaced.
  2. Check the gas supply: Make sure that the gas supply is turned on and that the gas pressure is sufficient. If the gas pressure is too low, the oven may take longer to preheat.
  3. Check the oven temperature sensor: A faulty temperature sensor can cause the oven to take longer to preheat. Use a multimeter to test the sensor for continuity. If it is not working properly, it may need to be replaced.
  4. Check the oven door seal: A faulty oven door seal can cause heat to escape, making it difficult for the oven to reach the desired temperature. Inspect the seal for any cracks or gaps, and replace it if necessary.
  5. Check the oven igniter safety valve: The igniter safety valve is responsible for regulating the flow of gas to the oven. If it is faulty, it may be restricting the flow of gas, causing the oven to take longer to preheat.
If you are uncomfortable performing any of these troubleshooting steps yourself, it is best to contact a qualified appliance repair technician for assistance.

30" Kenmore gas range door is locked and can not be opened.

If your Kenmore gas range door is locked and cannot be opened, try the following steps:
  1. Check the control panel for any error messages or fault codes. If there are any, try to clear them by unplugging the range for a few minutes and plugging it back in.
  2. Check if the oven is in self-cleaning mode. If it is, the door will automatically lock and will not open until the self-cleaning cycle is complete. Wait for the cycle to finish and the oven to cool down before attempting to open the door.
  3. Try resetting the door latch. Turn off the power to the range for at least 30 seconds, then turn it back on. Press and hold the "Clear/Off" button for three seconds. This should reset the door latch and allow you to open the door.
  4. If none of the above steps work, it's possible that the door latch or locking mechanism is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced. In this case, it's best to contact a qualified technician to diagnose and repair the issue.

We need to know where the ignitor plugs in on the Kenmore Gas Range 790.7433. We are trying to replace it without going in to the back.

Normally you have to go from the back side. I have seen units that the bottom panel can be removed for access. How ever this involves removing the outer door.

Why does one burner on a Kenmore 790.72903013 always spark, no matter which burner I turn on?

If one burner on your Kenmore 790.72903013 range is always sparking, regardless of which burner you turn on, there are several possible causes:
  1. Burner switch: The burner switch controls the flow of electricity to the burner. If it is faulty, it may be sending electrical current to the wrong burner, causing it to spark.
  2. Wiring: Damaged or loose wiring can also cause a burner to spark.
  3. Control module: The control module is the electronic component that controls the burner. If it is malfunctioning, it can cause the burner to spark.
  4. Surface burner receptacle: The burner receptacle is the part of the range where the burner plugs into. If it is corroded, it can cause the burner to spark.
  5. Burner itself: If the burner itself is malfunctioning, it can cause it to spark.
It is important to unplug the range from the power source before attempting to diagnose or repair the issue. If you are unsure about how to troubleshoot and fix the problem, it's best to call a professional technician or the manufacturer for assistance.
