A:

I am sending you an image showing the removal instructions for the oven bake ignitor. This job is easier if you remove the oven door. I am sending another image with instructions for removing the oven door.

Removing the oven bottom might require removing 2 screws at the back of the oven bottom. The instructions are for a range that has tabs holding the oven bottom. The rest of the instructions should fit your range.

Q:

How can I unlock my Kenmore oven?

A:

First I recommend trying to reset the door lock by putting the control into a self cleaning cycle, only let it run for about 1-2 minutes & then press stop/clear to see if this resets the lock allowing you to open the oven door. If that does not work you will need to pull the range out far enough to get behind it & remove the rear back guard panel. You will see the door lock latch motor #89 with a rod #88 connecting to the door latch #18 locking the oven door. You can remove the lock motor assembly or the connecting rod to get the oven door open. Another method is to use a coat hanger to force the latch hook to the left, from the front.

Q:

Is the task of replacing all of the insulation in my stove too difficult for me to do on my own?

A:

In this model of gas range, you would need to perform a major tear down of the cook top to access the oven wrapper insulation and the insulation in the back of the range. This insulation must be replaced properly in order to operate the range safely. I do not recommend replacing the insulation in this model of range yourself. I recommend calling a service technician to perform this type of repair.
