Q:

Can I replace the thermostat (part # WB20K0008 or WB20K8) of my Kenmore gas range? Model 36272201890? 36272201890 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thank you for choosing Searspartsdirect.com and being a valued member. I can certainly assist you.

THERMOSTAT REPLACEMENT
1. Remove power from range.
2. Pull range away from wall.
3. Remove cooktop and manifold panel as
described on this sheet.
4. Release thermostat bulb from clips inside oven
cavity.
5. Feed capillary and bulb through hole in top of
oven cavity.
6. From rear of range, pull the capillary and bulb
out the back of the range through one of the vent
openings beneath the control panel. It will be
necessary to bend the bulb to accomplish the
above.
7. Feed the capillary and bulb back through the
vent opening and into the opening leading to the
burner box.
8. Remove the wiring from the thermostat and
remove the screws securing thermostat to
manifold.
Install replacement thermostat in reverse order. Be
sure thermostat bulb does not touch rear wall of
cavity once mounted in the mounting clips.
Also, the capillary tube must not be in contact with
the oven flue or any other source of extreme heat.

OVEN TEMPERATURE CALIBRATION
NOTE: Calibration adjustments are made by
mov- ing the knob skirt. DO NOT make any
adjustments to the thermostat itself.
 IMPORTANT: Before making any temperature
djustments, be sure the oven thermostat
capilary bulb is properly positioned in the bulb
mounting clips. If capilary bulb is out of position
and contacts oven wall, calibration will be
incorrect. An usually dirty capillary bulb will also
affect thermostat calibration.

Thank you for your question. I know it can be frustrating when the oven stops working. The information you have received is very good. If tapping on the valve will cause the burner to ignite, it's very possible the valve # WB19K31 will need to be replaced. However, first check the amps as described in the video. If the amp draw is not sufficient, the igniter # WB13K21 will need to be replaced. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.
