Question and Answers

Q:

Older Kenmore Range #91136659590: My concern about this oven, is my eyes burn when I initially turn on the oven and open the oven door. The gas company ruled

A:

The procedure for removing the oven bottom is shown in the image below. I recommend that you shut off the house circuit breaker for the range (or unplug it if it is plugged into an outlet that you can reach). Shut off the gas supply. Carefully remove the oven bottom as shown in the image below. Clean any spills or residue on the underside of the bottom oven panel. Clean any spills or deposits in the area underneath the bottom panel.

Once you clean the area under the bottom panel, you can then replace that panel and run the self clean cycle. Be sure that you carefully follow all of the procedures shown in your owner's manual regarding that self clean cycle. Here is a link for your owner's manual in case you need it: Owner's Manual . NOTE: It may take a minute or two for this manual to download.

Make sure that you clean any excessive spills in the oven before starting the self clean cycle. Protect pets and birds from the fumes that may be emitted during this cycle. Ventilate the house as much as possible during the self clean cycle.

Since the gas company and a technician examined the range and did not detect any major problems, it should be safe to run the self clean cycle. Keep in mind that the self clean cycle will heat the oven to extremely high temperatures to burn any residue to a fine ash that can be wiped out of the oven. If you detect any problems during this self clean cycle, be prepared to shut off the electrical power, gas supply and take appropriate action. It is unlikely that you will have a problem but you should be prepared just in case.

I am not sure what is making your eyes burn when you start the oven. It could be residue as noted by the technician. Taking the above steps may eliminate this problem.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
