Question and Answers


milk spilled between 2 glass panes on door in front of oven. how to clean? 79077513802 Kenmore Elite Gas range


Thank you for contacting with your question about cleaning the door on your Kenmore Elite Gas Range. I am so sorry to hear milk got between the glass panes. I will be happy to help you with this. 

To clean between the panes of glass you will have to take the door apart. In order to do that, you will need to remove the oven door from the range. There are step-by-step instructions on removing the door in the owner's manual. I have included the link for you to view the manual online in case you don't have a copy. 

Owner's Manual for Kenmore Elite Gas Range 79077513802.

Th information will start on page 38 under the heading "Removing and Replacing the Lift-Off Oven Door". Please note that the oven door gasket should NOT be cleaned.
Once you have the door off, be sure to set it down on a non-abrasive surface to protect the door from scratches. 

Next you will need to take the door apart to get between the panes of glass. I have included the link for you to view the oven door parts diagram. This will show you where the screws are located and how the parts line up.

Oven Door Parts Diagram for Model 79077513802

I recommend as you take a part off the door, label it with the corresponding key number on the diagram. This will make it easier to line the parts back up when you go to put the door back together. Be sure to clean the glass with mild soapy water and rinse it well. Let the parts dry thoroughly before you reassemble the door. While you are cleaning the door, look at the condition of the gasket. Remember, it cannot be cleaned so if it looks dirty or worn, it would be a good time to replace it. If you need the gasket the part number is 316403101.

I hope this answers your question. If you need further assistance, please resubmit your question with additional details. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

My Kenmore Elite free-standing stove/oven (Model# 79077513802) errors out when heating to the programed temperature.


I certainly understand your concern with a repeat problem. Appliances are a major home expenditure and certain expectations of reliability come with it. The expert will review the issue in detail and respond. If in the meantime, if you decide you would like a technician to make the diagnosis and repair to keep from possibly purchasing more parts than needed, I attached the Sears Home Scheduler below.

Thank you for sending a complete description of your problem and the model number of the range.

From your description, I think the electronic oven control has failed. I believe your diagnosis is correct.

The thing that will cause an electronic control to have a short life is heat.

I would recommend any utensil that is used on the rear burners be no larger than the flame from the burner. For smaller utensils, turn the burner down to match the size of the utensil.

An oversized utensil drives the heat directly into the backsplash of the range. This heat shortens the life of the electronic control and any other electric items inside the control panel.

I am not accusing you of using oversized utensils. This is the thing that causes short life of controls and is something we can prevent.

Hi Barbara. We are currently having the same issue as yours with the orange glow. Did replacing the controller solve your issue? We have had this controller replaced under warranty already about two years you I cannot understand how such a vital component have a short life span. Hi Jim. You mentioned the possibility of utensils perhaps being the culprit however in our case the range is used for six months throughout the year lightly Also if heat affects the control panel in front then also the heat from the oven vent would be a culprit as well since this lies directly under and in front of the control board panel.....I would think it is a design flaw.
