Question and Answers

Q:

Gas leaking from Carburetor Intake 536797581

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
This is a symptom of a carburetor that is flooding, most likely from the needle being stuck in an open position, allowing a continuous flow of fuel into the carburetor. 
I would pull the carb from the engine. With a full can of carb cleaner, a wire brush, and a bread tie wire to poke through and clean the main jet; I would recommend a very thorough cleaning. Start by taking off the float bowl. Douse it very liberally with carb cleaner, and undo the pin for the float, and remove the needle and float. Clean them very thoroughly with the wire brush and carb cleaner. Pay close attention to the seat the needle sits in and clean it well. Once clean, start brushing the carb bowl and body and make sure you get all the varnish out. It may take three or four brushings with carb cleaner dousing in-between. From there, take the straw of the carb cleaner and shoot carb cleaner through any little hole or passageway of the carb. Shoot out the throat of the carb and poke the main jet with the bread tie wire. You have to make sure you get everything the first time, if you leave anything behind, it’s likely to reclog once you have it reassembled. 
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

That model number that you provided appears to be for a Craftsman edger instead of a Kenmore range. That second link that Barbara H. posted in the above response may help you with this problem. Pushing in and holding that door lock switch while unlocking that oven door may help you fix this problem. If you need more help, reply with additional details and an updated model number.
