Question and Answers

Q:

Are there smaller oven door handles available for my Kenmore range?

A:

There is not a shallower oven door handle that will fit this model of range. Here are some other ideas that may help you resolve this problem:

  • Check for any play that you may still have behind the range. If possible, you may be able to move the range back slightly. You would have to reposition the anti-tip mechanism back slightly to resolve your problem in this manner.
  • You may also be able to slightly reposition the dishwasher in the cabinet. Most dishwashers are held in place with mounting brackets that attach underneath the counter. It may only take a slight adjustment to properly clear the oven handle. You may be able to adjust the dishwasher mounting bracket so that the dishwasher door opens a few degrees inward instead of at a 90 degree angle to the oven door. If you have any sideward play in the counter opening where the dishwasher is installed, you may also be able to move it over slightly so that it won't hit the oven door handle.
One of these ideas (or a combination of them) may help you resolve this problem.
