Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

There is not a recall for the oven doors not closing tight. The oven door hinge kit #5304445529 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct. The hinge will likely come with instructions. I added an image below of the basic procedure.

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 .

Thanks for your question about the Kenmore range bake element issue. I have researched this model and the symptoms you describe. It is possible that the control has been damaged. If you have a volt meter and feel confident in testing the board here is a simple test. always disconnect power supply before servicing appliance, when testing voltage always wear safety equipment and use proper testing equipment Unplug the range and access to control board look for any burnt terminal first, if any terminal is burnt or chard then replace control. If it is okay then use volt meter (set to read 240v) to test voltage between P8 and P2 with power connected and set to broil. No voltage between these would indicate a bad control.(Use the wiring diagram to test additional circuits if needed.)
I hope this helps determine the cause of broil not working, should you need additional help reply with details.

Thanks Ron H.

Ron, Found P8 on back of clock/controller board it was on a plug that went to another board, could not find P2. Had broiler element tested and was good. Re-installed broiler element hooked meter to wires that would feed bake element and set oven to bake. I did not get a voltage. I did notice that the oven element and the broiler element are fed from wires leading to the clock/controller board and were wired together at the other end to each other. Does that mean that if I had a good bake element that the unit would work or that the fact that I could not get a voltage mean I need a new controller? Does not look good. Also there were no burnt terminals anywhere. Thanks! Mark Kenmore 790.96419101

Hi Mark ; Try this check; the voltage between L 2 out and BRL on the control board with set to Broil you should read 240 volts, If you do not the relay inside the control is bad and the control will need replacing. Thanks Ron H.

Hi Ron, If I touch L2 (out) when set to broil or bake and touch broil or bake terminals I get no voltage. If I touch L2 (IN) when set to broil or bake and touch broil or bake terminals I get 240 volts. Sounds like a bad controller.
