Question and Answers


Kenmore Electric Stove


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Depending on the amount of moisture in the oven cavity during a bake cycle, the oven vent may condense water on the control panel and/or drip water onto the glass smoothtop. If your Kenmore range serial number falls in the range of VF121-VF236 then your range will need a new upper vent tube. The oven vent upper tube was redesigned to increase the air speed through the vent. This causes the air to flow past the cool surface of the backguard panel and prevents moisture from condensing on the panel. Order and install the new oven vent, part number 316208302.

To replace upper vent tube: Disconnect the power cord from the power source. From rear of range remove the upper and lower back panels. The oven vent tube is located on the right behind a rectangular vent heat shield. Remove the center and right screw attached to the vent heat shield. Lift the left side of the vent heat shield out of the tabbed slot. Slide the old vent tube off the lower tube coming from the oven cavity. Install the new tube in reverse. Reinstall vent heat shield and two screws; reinstall upper and lower rear panels and all screws.

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 .
