Question and Answers

Q:

Why does my Accubake oven take 36 minutes for bread that should take only 25 minutes?

A:

Here are some tips that may help you resolve these problems:

  • Make sure that you give the oven ample time to preheat. Wait longer before placing items in the oven to see if they bake more evenly.
  • Do not overcrowd the oven. Place the items in the middle of the rack with ample room for air circulation.
  • Check the bottom of the baking pans and cooking sheets. Dark residue on the bottom can cause uneven baking.
  • To accurately check oven temperature, you would need to use an accurate thermocouple thermometer. Allow the oven to preheat and then cycle several times before checking the average temperature over a 5 minute period to accurately determine the temperature in the oven.
  • Make sure that the oven door is closing and sealing properly.
These tips may help you resolve the problems that you are having with your oven. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your range.

Q:

Where can I get a light switch for my 25 year old Kenmore range?

A:

It would be very unusual for the steel rod to have broken so I will assume that you need the switch (key#123). The push rod (key#124) should have a small push rod button (key#125) on the end that the door strikes and the other end of the rod pushes on the door light switch. The push rod and button is no longer available but the light switch is still available. The door/light switch is part #5308003081. I added a link to Sears Parts Direct with the Switch-door light already looked up for you. Click on "Switch-door light" below to open the link.

Q:

my conpressor only builds up to 25 PSI and the motor keeps running

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having problems with your air compressor. I can only give you general information without a model number. I assume you have an oil free model air compressor. This type is what we sell the most of now days. If the air compressor model begins with 921: Your air compressor probably has something broken inside the cylinder. Disconnect the power to the air compressor and remove the plastic cover around the motor and compressor.

Before you take the compressor apart, listen and feel for air leaks. Check to see if air is coming back out of the intake filter. If air is coming back out of the intake filter, something is wrong inside the cylinder.

You can see a parts diagram at [www.searspartsdirect.com]. The parts diagram will help you locate the parts that build air pressure. These are the parts you need to inspect.

Turn the motor shaft by hand and be sure the piston goes up and down.

If the piston is ok remove the 4 screws holding the head on top of the cylinder. Remove the head.

Directly under the head is the pressure plate. The pressure plate has reeds on it that direct the air into the discharge line and keep the air from going back through the intake side of the compressor. Check the reeds for warping or breaking. If the reeds are damaged, you must replace the pressure plate. Make note of how the pressure plate sets and the o-rings that seal around it.

Remove the pressure plate and inspect the cylinder walls for scratches or wear, if the cylinder is damaged you need to replace the cylinder, piston, and rings. Make note of the piston and the rings on it. If a ring is worn or broken the air goes back through the intake filter and no pressure is built. If you have to replace the rings, replace the piston and sleeve also.

To replace the rings and piston, you have to remove the nuts that hold the piston to the eccentric.

If the model number begins with 919: Your air compressor probably has something broken inside the cylinder. Disconnect the power to the air compressor and remove the plastic cover around the motor and compressor.

If the reeds are damaged, you must replace the pressure plate. Make note of how the pressure plate sets and the o-rings that seal around it.

Remove the pressure plate and inspect the plastic sleeve inside the cylinder. Look for scratches or cuts in the sleeve. Make note of the piston and the rubber o-ring around it. If the o-ring is worn of broken the air goes back through the intake filter and no pressure is built. If you have to replace the o-ring, replace the piston and sleeve also.

To replace the o-ring and sleeve, you have to remove the nut that holds the piston to the motor shaft. When you replace the nut you must torque it to 85-90 foot pounds. Torque the head bolts to 7-10 foot pounds.

Please let me know if you need further assistance. Please add a model number.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
