Question and Answers

Q:

replacement instructions 79071153705 Kenmore Gas range

Q:

How can I fix my Kenmore gas oven?

Q:

What other grates can I use on my gas range besides the ones that come with it?

A:

I don't find information on part 6316213805. We normally recommend that only the manufacturer specified parts be used on the range. An improperly fitting grate could cause a burn hazard if a hot pot or pan becomes unstable and falls over. Using a different grate with a different size and design could be dangerous. According to your description, the size of the grates that you are considering is not significantly different than the size of the original ones that are designed for the range. If the grates fit properly and will provide the proper stability, you may be able to use them without much risk. That decision is ultimately up to you.

I don't know why the cost of the replacement grates is so high. It could be that the design and testing of this component could be expensive considering the possible liability involved in the event of a failure. The composition of the grate may contribute to the cost of production. The amount of replacement grates produced is not likely that large. This could also add to the cost. These are only possible general reasons for the high cost of replacement grates. The manufacturer will normally not provide details of the cost of replacement parts.
