Q:

The adapter vent tube #318317100, for built in electric oven #79040522(640 or 400):

A:

That part is shown in the image below. It fits over the exit vent for the oven cavity. It will slightly reduce the flow of air and smoke out of the oven during the bake mode, broil mode or self clean cycle. If that part has fallen out of the oven, then you may be able to insert a new one yourself. I don't have specific information on how to replace that component. You may be able to push it into place from inside the oven cavity. If not, then you would need to shut off the house circuit breakers for the oven to completely disconnect electrical power and pull the oven out of the cabinet. You would then need to disassemble the top of the oven to access that vent tube and the top of the oven cavity. I don't recommend that you attempt that type of repair yourself. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

You should be able to run the self clean cycle with that component missing. I recommend that you clean out any excessive spills before running that self clean cycle. You may notice more smoke coming out of the oven during that self clean cycle. You will need to adequately ventilate your home and protect your pets and birds during that cycle. I do not know of any danger that would be caused by operating the oven normally without that vent adapter in place. I do recommend that you replace it (or have a service technician replace it) as soon as possible. If you can wait until you replace that component before running the self clean cycle, that would be better.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore 110 dryer heat?

A:

Make sure that the gas supply valve is open on the dryer and that it has a proper gas supply.

If the igniter is not glowing on your gas valve assembly, then you could have an open thermal fuse. The following link of a previous answer provides the procedure for accessing and checking this component on a common Kenmore dryer: Why won't my Kenmore dryer heat? NOTE: Unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.

If your dryer does not have the bottom front service panel, then the thermal fuse is likely on the blower housing that can be accessed by removing the back panel (after unplugging the dryer).

The following link of a previous answer explains the operation of the gas valve assembly: Why won’t the igniter glow on my gas dryer?

Understanding this theory of operation may help you determine the failure that is preventing your dryer from heating.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore 110 dryer (there are many different models that begin with 110).
