Question and Answers

Q:

Screw(s)d 79078732405 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issues you're having with the door slamming shut, and the issue with identifying the screws needed. I know how frustrating that can be.

Typically on this type of issue, the door hinge spring and guide are at fault. There should be a stopper in the guide that the hinge runs into during normal operation. This prevents the door from slamming when closing the oven door. You would need to thoroughly inspect the hinge mechanism on each side of the door to look for worn parts. It may be needed to replace the hinges. Page 20 of the owner's manual will cover this in some detail. 

In regards to the screws, you never specifically mentioned which ones you were in need of. I am presuming the handle screws, which are part number 316433300. This screw is spec 10-14 x 2.125". The trim screw is part number 316021110. The spec is 8-18 x 0.5". 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
