Question and Answers

Q:

Kennmore gas range part {Air shutter} from 1987 model gas range needed.

A:

The part no longer being available can be very frustrating. The range is made by Whirlpool for the Kenmore brand.I did some research but was not able to find the part or a substitute part. Your expert will be able to help answer your question. It may take 24-48 hours. I do hope that everything works out.

This gas range { all 4 burners and 4 gas tubes inside the the top of the range }has been operating without the 4 air shutters for 3 weeks after cleaning and maintenance and nothing wrong happened. Are these "AIR SHUTTERS" really necessary?

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The part number of the air shutter 6497 is actually the air shutter for bake burner. Based on you needing 4 air shutters I must assume you need the air shutters for the surface burners. The 6497 would not fit the surface burners and neither is available.

I hope this is helpful.

Majed; The air shutters are used to adjust air to fuel mixture for the best blue burning flame. Sometimes the air shutters must be fully opened anyway to get a nice blue flame. If the burners are igniting properly and burning properly, it will likely be Okay.
