Question and Answers

Q:

My Kenmore range glass top cracked - can it be replaced?

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the glass on your range. I looked up the model number you submitted. According to our records, the glass is no longer available. I searched online and was able to find a few sites that offer the glass top. I recommend Googleing part number 318223624. It should bring up a list of sites that have the glass. If you decide to order the top, you can install it yourself. I posted an image below that contains the instructions for replacing it. Just click on the instructions to enlarge them.

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

I am sorry the cook top did not have the instructions included. I will be happy to help.  First, shut off the house circuit breakers for the range to completely disconnect electrical power.  

Most of the screws will require a Phillips head screw driver. Once you remove the cook top from the range, you can then access the radiant surface elements by removing the burner box on the bottom of the cook top. Transfer the radiant surface elements to the new cook top and reassemble the range.  The images and instructions to guide you through this replacement are below. If you disconnect any wiring, make note of the connections or take a picture before disconnecting.

If you have any issues or need further help, please reply.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thanks for the info. The bake element does look easy to replace, but I was also wanting to know if this should have even happened (the bake element to catch on fire and burn all the way through)

Thank you for your question.

I can understand your concern when the oven element shorted and burnt.

This is not an uncommon occurrence with electric oven elements. Most of the time the customer does not see it fail.

Either the element with fail internally with no fire works or it shorts to the outside skin of the element and gives you a fire works.

You should be able to replace this element yourself.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

  • First REMOVE POWER to the range.

  • Open the oven door and remove the oven racks.

  • Locate and remove the screws that secure the oven element to the back of the oven cavity.

  • Slowly pull the element out from the back of the oven cavity wall until you can gain access to the electrical terminals on the back of the element.

  • Remove the wires from the element terminals and remove old element.

  • Install the new element by installing the wires from the range to the new element, being careful as to not bend the wire terminals on the back of the element. (Hold the terminals with one hand as you tighten the wire terminal fittings).

  • Carefully reinstall the element back into the back oven wall and secure with the screws.

  • Reinstall the oven racks and test operation.

The part number for the oven element is: 318255401 and you can purchase it from: Sears Parts Direct .

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I hope this will help you with your bake element replacement.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thanks for the info on the baking element. I have order the part, but will not arrive until next week. My question is: Since I have removed the bake element from the range and wires are exposed, will I do any harm if I turn the power back on to the range and use my surface top. I just want to make sure that if I do not turn on any oven controls, that no wires will be damaged. I just want to be about to cook on the top surface, IF possible. Thanks
