Question and Answers

Q:

What could cause my gas range to not heat up past 170 and sometimes smells strong of gas?

A:

The symptom with your range indicates a weak oven igniter. If the igniter does not pull enough current/amps the oven gas valve will not open. If the igniter is border line it could take a long time for the gas valve to open or it may open too slowly, or open up and not ignite the gas before the valve closes again. I recommend replacing the oven igniter at this time and it should take care of your range problem.

Part# for the bake igniter is 5303935066 which can be ordered on line at Sears.com and click on Parts.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

Q:

What would cause my Kenmore oven when set to 170 automatically goes to a high temperature and flashes F1 and won't turn off?

A:

The "F1" fault code is likely indicating a failed electronic oven control (EOC) board. It can also be caused by a faulty temperature sensor probe. The temperature sensor probe needs to removed from inside the oven cavity and tested with an ohm meter and compared to the RTD scale. If the oven temperature sensor measures correctly when compared to the RTD scale, replace the electronic oven control board. (See image below) If the temperature sensor does not measure correctly based on temperature, replace the oven sensor.

Q:

model 701.99570140 kenmore stack washer dryer

A:

Hi Pamela,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I recommend replacing the maintenance kit (part number 5304461262) while you have your dryer disassembled. This kit has all the parts you need for the drum bearing and drum support as well as the front glides. I am including a set of images below that will help you with disassembly. Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

Here is a video that demonstrates how to replace the parts included in this kit; Video . The dryer in this video may not look exactly like yours, but the procedure is basically the same.

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 .
