I have had this stove for a long time and had no problems with it. It work great. I love it. I use it every day. It was a good buy from Sears. I would tell my friends to buy one. It come with a warranty when you buy it from sears. It is a good brand.
I have always purchased Sears Kenmore appliances - refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, washing machine. Love them. I was sorry To hear that Sears closed down all the stores in New Jersey. I bought their products for many years and trusted them.
It’s a Kenmore elite. It’s a very nice range. However we have had issues with the controls. They say to replace the board. That’s very expensive. Sometimes it doesn’t help. They say replace it again.... It turned out to be a bad interface at the plug on the board. It didn’t cost anything to fix but time. Probably over a hundred hours of research that didn’t help. I just happened to have 30 years experience troubleshooting equipment and as soon as I quit looking for answers and figured it out on my own. Poor soldering. Shouldn’t Ever happen.
I have had for nine years with no issues. All units works and oven is a great self-cleaning one. It is way to clean the top. Everything works the way it should. My only issue is I hate the stains inside the oven door window you cannot get to.
I have bought Sears/Kenmore products. Even though today is not like many, many years ago. I dislike going to a hardware store to buy appliances. Cookie-cutter appliances. Just 3 years ago, I purchased a refrigerator, convection stove, and dishwasher.
The stovetop grids are so easy to clean, you can lift them completely off and polish the stove surface. Nice variety burners and center for grill, easy to make multiple pancakes at once. Oven is large and easy to clean, racks remove easily.
This stove/oven was actually purchased by my mother. She loved Kenmore products. The item in my opinion is okay and I have no problems with its performance. It's just not the appliance I myself would have purchased.
I have always bought Kenmore appliances and invested in their maintenance agreements. When my old (15 years) became unrepairable, the maintenance agreement replaced it with a 5 burner double oven with a convection feature. I love it. I trust Kenmore appliances.
First electric stove top and while it did take some adjusting from cooking on a gas range, I am happy I chose my 6 burner Kenmore stove/oven. The Turbo boil and warm zone are a huge plus. Really one one place for a large pan, which is upfront so that is good. This is for a smaller to medium kitchen in my opinion.
I have an electric glass top. Although I hate cleaning dust off of it every day. Being black any little mess shows up. But it’s an amazing stove top. Heats up food quickly. All over heat. Looks sleek and really is a wonderful addition to finalize our kitchen.
The range is easy to use and heats up really fast. It would be better if it had an induction system. The range does not appear to come with a hood and fan system which would be helpful if they did offer those to go with it. I like that it comes in different colors. Very helpful that it comes in gas and electric. Knobs come off for easy cleaning and the top raises so you can get underneath.
Purchased about 13 years ago so I realize things can start going wrong. This was my first (and last) glass top range as I had always wanted one. The heating is not stable. Of course being electric, it does turn itself on and off but that just regulates the temp of the element not your pan. Hard to keep clean especially if you spill something that has sugar in it, like bbq sauce, and it burns on as you still have to cook and burner takes a while to cool. I grew up using gas stove/oven at home. Upon moving around, I have come to get used to electric and when glass tops came along, I really wanted one. I am over it now. Ready to get gas back.
Stops working if we shut off the oven and restart it, to adjust temp or if we need to put something back in because it was not done as we thought, only way to fix it is to pull the heavy oven away from the wall to get to the plug, unplug it, plug it back in, which is a disaster as it's too heavy for me!
I rent my home so I didn't buy this stove but I use it pretty much every day. It's a white Kenmore, ceramic top with 4 burners. One of those is a double burner. I just did the self cleaning on it, which took 3 hours (not as long as some ovens). It burned off pretty much everything but left some crusties between the crack of the door and the oven but other than that it cleaned itself great (I just had to wipe the ash out). The top is fairly easy to clean but to get the ceramic really clean and shiny I use the Kenmore cooktop ceramic cleaner. It's wonderful.
Poor quality material. It is rusting in every corner! Also is coming apart. The control panel is loose. The burners are getting hard to clean. The top oven, I keep it covered with aluminum foil, otherwise if you cook something and it falls on the top of the stove, it’s going to stain the paint.
I have had my Kenmore Range and Self Cleaning Oven for 16 years. The oven has convection and it’s so wonderful to be able to rapidly cook things fast and have them ready for my hungry family to eat. My stovetop works wonders to cook on. I am a Self proclaimed Chef. My friends and family are amazed at the food I prepare on my 16 year old Range and Oven.
I have a double oven and it's great except one thing, the side oven is so small that really nothing fits inside to bake. You have to order special size pans AMD let's face it, no one wants to go out of their way to do that let alone bake a tiny one person cake or 4 small rolls. I don't want to take away from regular oven but I believe the tiny baby oven should be an inch to two inches bigger at least to put regular size pans even if it's for warming.
Sears Kenmore has made some of the most reliable appliances I have ever purchased! I purchased my stove in 1998 and I'm still using it. It isn't digital; which I prefer because digital appliances need too many repairs and are very costly when the circuitry breaks down. The con is they don't brown as well as metal ovens. I'm saddened to see Sears closing its stores. I would definitely research to find who carries Kenmore when purchasing appliances, as I'm sure they have updated them.
Kenmore Elite line is not ELITE at all. Poor workmanship for an overpriced appliance. Oven door glass broke within first 3 months. Screws for door handle were too long and cut into glass, shattering it.
We wanted a conduction stove/oven and after looking at more than 73 different brands and models we went with the Kenmore Elite. It has 2 ovens, which is great when you need to make more than one dish, the only 2 problems I have with it. Neither oven is big enough to stand a spiral ham up (20 lb turkey fit okay) and you can't use foil (that is how I was taught to cook turkey). We also love the options to lock both ovens and cooktops to prevent accidental turn on. The stovetop with the large burner (3 different size elements) comes in handy and the middle back with flex heating.
It’s lasted at least 15 years. The glass flat top is impressively flawless. Recently the two left burners died but other than that, it’s done its job well! The self cleaning oven, you still definitely have to vacuum out when finished the cycle.
Oven is self-cleaning, makes spills easier to resolve; heat distribution makes baking a joy; from soufflés, casseroles to cakes, your end result is cooked to your taste. Broiled foods are easier; resulting in healthier eating for this senior!
I would like a little louder alarm, I would also like to have a plug in on the back panel. I also would like to make it easier to clean inside of the glass. Otherwise I really enjoy my electric stove. The last one I had lasted 24 years of hard use. Since I love to cook and bake.
Good working stove. It is easy to use and very few people have complained about them. If there are problems with the stoves, they're easy to repair. Kenmore is a well known name. It is trusted around the world. Other products of Kenmore have been good working and easy to use too.
This is a 5 burner, push button range with a convection oven and warmer draw. It has auto settings for convection bake, bake, broil, meat, cakes, and breads. You can auto set to pre-heat oven, oven cook time, delay start, and add minutes. It has flex clean. It also comes with a griddle. Best range ever!
Kenmore has always been a leader in appliances and I have a wonderful stove that is easy to clean and includes enough room to cook a Thanksgiving meal! It has electronic ignition which has revolutionized lighting pilots on the stove top and an igniter that engages in the oven once a certain temperature is reached! I’m sure all brands include this technology but I’ve researched by virtue of customer reviews that Kenmore shines in less repairs overall! In appearance, it is beautiful and enhances the aesthetic value of your kitchen! Easy, understandable controls keep you adept of the functionality and less time reading handbooks! All in all, I have been quite content in my satisfaction of the Kenmore label! Congratulations to an innovative dependable company????
There are some small things that bug me; the alarm/sound it makes are very annoying, it is very loud and ugly; the touch switches on the control surface are way over sensitive, For example, when you wipe the surface all timers and lights go on.
This is the second electric oven I purchase from Kenmore. The first broke in 2 yrs... The second a yr.. I spend so much money... Still dont have a working stove.. it's GARBAGE!!.. The same with 2 washer machine.. GARBAGE!!!!
I bought my Kenmore range a few years ago and I smell gas especially when using the broiler. A serviceman did come out and also checked the oven temp. He said all was fine. I still smell gas when using the broiler for a few minutes. I must also preheat the oven long and set 5-20 degrees higher. Sears should have stuck with Kenmore, Craftsman, and their durable jeans. They started sending their work out and that was their downfall. What a shame!
I purchased a Kenmore Gas Range Model 790.74419810 on September 6, 2019 from a local Sears store in Southern California as a gift for my niece. The appliance was not delivered to my niece until October 29, 2019. Just 29 days after having the appliance installed my niece was cooking Thanksgiving dinner on November 28, 2019 at 350 degrees when she heard a loud crash from the kitchen. She ran in the kitchen to discover that the inner oven door glass had shattered all over the inside of the range peppering Thanksgiving dinner with shards of hot glass. Her Thanksgiving dinner was completely ruined and the only thing she had to be thankful about was that her two year old son was nowhere near the shards of hot glass when the oven door glass shattered.
After further research the day after Thanksgiving we learned that Sears has had this issue with Kenmore ranges ever since 2011 and numerous injuries have resulted over the past 8 years. Despite countless complaints to the CPSC Sears has chosen not to issue a recall nor take the affected model off the market. My wife and I attempted, on November 29, 2019, over the phone with the third party in India Sears has outsourced customer to, to acquire a refund for the obviously defective product but the only response we received was a technician would come out to verify that the glass had actually shattered.
As a last resort to get some sort of satisfaction, my wife and I returned to the Sears store on Black Friday November 29, 2109 where we purchased the defective product and forced the store manager to pick up the defective range and refund our money. The Kenmore Gas Range Model 790 is a dangerous product that will soon severely injure someone. Sears is negligent and has with full knowledge continued to sell a dangerous and defective product and all the while focused on profit rather than safety. Please help save the public from this corporate greed.
This was a brand new unit in my brand new house. From day one I had problems with both the oven and microwave. First-after using the microwave for a couple weeks, I noticed the handle had become loose. No problem I thought, I'll just tighten the screws-nope. The screws are not accessible. They are hidden under the plastic frame and are not able to get to. I called Sears' authorized service, they came out, and because of the poor design flaw, they had to replace the entire door=$500.00, which was covered. Now the oven, it never has heated properly and when I went to use it, it made a loud humming noise, then when I went to use the broiler, the cooling fan you could hear, was scraping against the sides of something inside. Once again, Sears service was called, came out, had to order a new fan/motor. To access the fan/motor, they had to pull the unit from the wall, and in doing so, tore my wall up a little bit.
When they sat it on the floor to work on it, they didn't put anything under it and there were major dents in my new luxury vinyl flooring. They got it repaired, re-installed it and it worked fine until yesterday. The microwave door handle is loose again also. I called Sears service yesterday and explained to them it's doing the exact same thing it was when they were here before. The representative informed me it would be a service charge of something like $250.00/hr. I couldn't believe it-I told him it's doing the same thing it did before. Their response- their repairs only have a 90 day warranty. I told him I wasn't paying for what obviously is a poorly designed appliance. I informed him I would contact my attorney. Bottom line- every mechanical and electrical device will have its issues over time, to me, it's about how the manufacturer stands behind their product. Will not buy a Sears product again.
I have a dual fuel model 790.75603 oven, the oven was great for almost 8 years. Loved the dual ovens and the gas top. In Jan of this year we woke up to a beeping noise and noticed the oven was on self clean mode, could't shut if off. My husband had to pull the oven out and unplug it. The tech came out. The oven was fine. The second time I came home and the oven was on self clean mode (that was scary) the third time we were sleeping! Reading all these reviews can't believe it hasn't been recalled! So my problem is no one makes a 40" stove anymore. If I replace it it would have to be with 36" stove and then I have a 2" gap on each side of my granite counter tops!!!! Yuhhh.
Looks good but performs poorly. Difficulty coming to and staying at desired temperature (figure at least 20 minutes). The oven fans are very noisy and the oven takes a long time to cool down. Called service out twice to fix and they found nothing wrong. If you like to bake this is not the oven you would want.
I bought a Kenmore 79032613318, slide in range for over $1300. I had shopped around but knew the kenmore brand for years and felt this would be a good choice. I bought in June of 2016 and by the end of the summer of 2017 none of the range control buttons worked. So basically all I had was a stove and no oven. I researched the possible problem and found that either the electronic controller or the cover panel itself was bad (that is where the touch screen buttons are housed). The controller cost 227 and the control panel cost 337. I took a gamble and replaced the controller. Still not working, now Sears is telling me to replace the control panel. So if I decide to do this I will have over $500 into a range that lasted less than year....Think I won't be buying any sears products in the near future and will just move on and buy new range somewhere else....Got hosed on that deal for sure.
I purchased this range about six months ago, because I had an earlier model and loved it. Not so much this time. The oven bakes/roasts very unevenly, unless I use the convection feature. Recently, we found out the stovetop burner knobs are rendered useless VERY easily and VERY expensive to replace. There is a thin sheath inside the knob that fits over the shaft that controls the burner heat. This sheath often stays on the shaft when the knob is removed for cleaning. The first time it happened was by our cleaning lady, and she didn't notice that the knob was loose when she replaced it.
We later figured out that the sheath had come out of the knob and just got lost. Now I am finding the sheath often stays on the shaft when I remove the knob and has to be replaced in the knob. It is very, very thin. We had to order a replacement knob and it cost $40!! $30 for the knob and $10 to ship. Not happy at all and will not recommend this product. Sad, because I have always had Kenmore appliances. No more.
We purchased our wall oven from Sears with the expectation of quality of their name and the backing of their outside manufactures making products for them. I noticed the house smelled like wood burning and thought it might be our fireplace. The smell progressively grew stronger and stronger over the months as we used the oven. Last week I got scared and called a local appliance repairman and he asked if my oven was clean, as most of his calls are from something falling onto the heating element(s). I cleaned the oven as a precaution. My son came home from college for the weekend that night and used the oven to bake a dessert, the kitchen filled with smoke and again smelled like burnt wood.
Monday the appliance repairman found the problem and said we were lucky the house did not burn down. The bottom of the oven dropped down allowing the heating element and bottom liner of the oven to transfer heat to the under cover as seen in the pictures attached. First two are the charred and burnt cabinet, third is the hot spot under the oven where heat transfer happened, the last three are the sunken bottom and heating element.
Purchased Kenmore Electric Range Model 79094182310 Nov. 2017. Within 1 yr after using Self-Clean feature which resulted in scorched area to the top of oven door on left side, I called for service. This scorched panel was replaced and I was told not to use self-clean function???! During 2018 I continued using the oven, replaced the bulb and still getting scorched/brown areas on top panel of the oven door even at temps of 425 and above. Called again and tech from Indianapolis came, checked thoroughly, called for research info about this oven, advised that the oven door seems ok but heat exhaust from oven is faulty/insufficiently constructed and there is no repair/solution. This faulty electric range should be recalled and replaced.
I bought the most expensive and top of the line stove over 3k with the thought of getting the best product they offer. If this is Sears Kenmore best I feel very sorry for anyone that paid less. Dual convection fans but cooks uneven. Takes 20 min to come up to full temp if it’s at 400 and told by Sears service tech this is normal. My 20 year old Jenn-Air it replaced took 8 min to come up to 450. The front panel looks like hell after 1 year. My dog can swipe his nose across it and turn on burners. It’s a safety hazard as done it when a towel was on the burner. The top glass if you look at it wrong it will scratch. I use aluminum bottom Swiss diamond pots and pans never made a mark on the Jenn-Air and this thing looks worse now after 2 years than my 20 year old glass did on the old stove that had cast iron used on it now and then.
This is the finest Chinese garbage ever made. You just cannot buy a quality product anymore no matter what you pay. I tried to get the glass replaced and fix the stove and no luck. I will never buy another Sears/Kenmore product ever again and go out of my way to tell others how poor of a product this really is. Had the Jenn-Air not got the top smashed when I put it out in the shed it would be back in place of this piece of junk and be outside with a big sign on it saying how terrible Sears products and service is now. No wonder Craftsman tools went to Lowe’s and no wonder Sears is now barely above water. Done with them completely. I should have learned my lesson on the terrible Elite dishwasher we have and all the issues with that thing but tried to give them another chance as back 20 years ago products from them lasted forever compared to other brands.
I like the oven. It look like it will go with my kitchen setting. My thought is it a good product. They cook very well. If anyone need a stove buy the appliance. The quality is very nice and beautiful appliance get it in silver.
My glass top oven is really and has never given a problem since I have owned it. It the best stove and greatly recommended it. I love the double burner so I can go from small to large cooking for dinner.
In the fall of 2017, we underwent a kitchen remodel and as part of that, had a Kenmore Electric Built-In Oven Model 790.4942 installed. So, it is only barely over a year old. Since the beginning we have had issues with it. The first time I used the self-clean function, about 3 months after installation, large brown spots appeared between the inner and outer glass on the front of the oven. A technician came out and said this was the result of using the self-clean function and not to use it! He said it was a problem and he didn't know why Kenmore kept using this function, with the same result!
Since then, I had food consistently undercooked and purchased an oven thermometer. After following the instructions, I found that if setting the oven for 350 degrees, it only came to 325 degrees, so I followed the instructions to re-calibrate it, by upping the temperature 20 degrees. Then, things were cooking through, but scorching/burning on the bottom, so once again I used the oven thermometer and it indicated that although the oven was set for 350 degrees, it was now cooking at 375 degrees! I can't seem to get it right and I'm frustrated. We paid $1,000 for this oven and it is not nearly as good or efficient as my GE 13 year old oven in the house I previously lived in!
We purchased this 40" range from Sears & Roebuck brand new with other appliances. They have had problems too & are all too expensive for what you get any more with too many digital, sensitive, & failing parts. We have been purchasing Kenmore products for over 35 years before purchasing these new products. The problems started after the range was less than three years old, but out of warranty. The bake element melted & burned out & melted. The cost of the part alone was over $60.00 for the element.
Then three months later the range caught on fire again & the element burned again (the oven was not even turned on), this time the control board & some wiring between the element & the control board also burned. Now in addition to the element needing replacement again, the control board & wiring needs replacement. The cost of the control board alone is nearly $500.00. That is more than the last oven even cost. This oven was over $2000.00 & burning out in less than 10 years with the cost of repairs ridiculous. Something is just not right.
I tried to contact customer service and was transferred 6 times, then hung up on! The Kenmore Elite Range of 5 years almost burned my home down this morning. When I called to ask for assistance to determine if the range was safe to be in my home, they wanted to charge me $25 to just talk to someone! Then, they wanted to charge me $89.99 to send some to my home! Yes, I am furious that this company just wanted to collect money and would not help. My home has smoke damage, which I now have to clean due to the malfunction. I will never purchase a Kenmore product again!
2018 Kenmore Elite Convection Oven. Purchased 3-2018. Problem 1. Double convection bakes terrible. Chicken still raw after 1 1/2 hours. 350 deg. Problem 2. When oven heats up I can NOT open the warmer drawer. Oven swells underneath. When oven cools then I can open it. Problem 3. Extended warranty is a joke. They would not allow us to return this brand new stove. Been fighting with them since April 2018. So $500.00 in parts sent to house. 3 Repairmen to do a 3 hours job that took 6 1/2 hours. 1 repairman sat in the van the entire time. Never came into our home.
Problem 4. After putting in NEW damaged parts and turning on stove to heat it up the drawer once again would not open. So now supervisor is sending in a refund ticket. Hi he Warranty Department can refuse us again if they feel they want to. Problem 5. Sears Repair will schedule their own appointments with you without telling you. You’ll get an automated phone call the day before confirming the repair appointment that you NEVER made! Fingers crossed that we can be rid of this stove and Sears very soon! FYI: Don’t fall victim to Sears and their Warranty Plans! I will update.
I have a Kenmore 79041053101, the oven locked (5f error code), had to use YouTube to open it, the top burners are difficult to maintain. Repairman fees from Sears is insane $80 are. I have been informed that to replace control board it will cost about $500. It came with the house, 4 yrs old but I will not repair and will never purchase a Kenmore appliance.
I bought an electric slide in oven a few years ago, and ever since, the oven temperature does not run true. I had to purchase several oven thermometers to see what the correct temperature was. The MAIN issue that really scares me is the self-cleaning button is too easily activated and locks the oven door. It gets extremely hot and is extremely hard to shut it off. One time, we had to call a neighbor to help us pull the unit out to shut it off. I hate that the digital buttons are located in front so when I wipe anything down to clean it, it activates ALL of the features and I have to constantly push the stop button to cancel out the functions.
The clock quit working also. I will never buy another Kenmore product after my experience with this oven.
I had a Kenmore Range MOD# 790.9611. It turned on while my child and I were not home and burned our apartment down to the stud, leaving us homeless and with absolutely nothing. Everything we had is gone and Kenmore doesn't want to take responsibility for their product. Mind you I have not used the stove in several months because we do not eat at home during the summer.
Bought a Frigidaire appliance package for a new home build in 2008. 36" Cooktop, 30" Double wall oven, Dishwasher, and side by side Fridge. All in stainless steel. Had to replace the wall oven within 4 years, replaced dishwasher a year later. Cooktop is now on its second service for a product recall and will most likely be replaced very soon. Fridge quit making ice within 6 years. Replaced wall oven with Kenmore Pro (another Frigidaire/Electrolux product). It had to be serviced within a year and is crapping out again but is now out of warranty. Sure don't make stuff like they used to. Rest assured that my replacements will not have those names attached. >$10,000 in 10 years time on appliances is pretty ridiculous. I gave them 2 stars because they are helpful and nice when I call for recall service.
Purchased from Sears. Within two years, out of warranty, the front panel of the warmer drawer started to rust so we had to buy a new part and pay to have it replaced. Now the top of the control panel is rusting. Costs $300 to replace. Don't buy Kenmore without an extended warranty.
After replacing my Kenmore Elite slide in oven/stove because it was a lemon with too many issues to enumerate, I foolishly choose the next generation thinking it was improved. This stove cannot maintain a temperature for more than 10 minutes before it begins a "preheat" function and it begins to try to come to temp by firing up the top and/or bottom heating elements effectively ruining any delicate baked goods like cookies or cakes. I will never ever buy a Kenmore product again. In addition even though they market a five element stove top, if you have 2 elements on high and the oven on, the entire unit blows the breakers and fuses (and it is not our wiring/breakers that are malfunctioning). Worst product ever!
On 1-28-18 we bought a NEW Kenmore Elite Convection Oven with Warmer Drawer. also bought the Warranty Protection. Total sale $2,084.43. First one came damaged. March 2018 received the second one. Good shape, but the delivery guys left clear tape on the inside and left the oven on. When I opened the door the gasket pull off the oven. Took 2 service call to get one installed right. Glass Top is a pain in the butt to clean. You have to use Kenmore Cleaner. Nothing Else Works. Convection (Double Fan) is horrible. Bakes Terrible. No matter how much I try either things are way overdone or doughy in the middle. I hate it. I have had a convection oven for 17 years and I have loved every minute of it. Used convection at all time. Not with this oven! It's is just beyond me how it is so terrible.
Sears repair guys came 5 times so far. Now the bottom drawer is rubbing on the underside of the oven where the heating element is. When the oven heats it is expanding the metal under the oven. Now they tell me it will be a "Major Rebuild". I was told my a Warranty Supervisor (Alisha) that if the tech came out and confirmed that the problem was indeed what I was saying I would be issued a refund ticket for a new or different oven. Well now they (Milly a different Supervisor) are saying that in order to issue that the oven will have to go under the same repair 4 times in order for that to happen! So 2 repair guys will be coming this month and it will take 3+ hours to repair a defective oven at the cost of about $400.00. The repair guy said he has never done this before so he is bringing another guy with him.
So yet another day interrupted by a Sears Repairman that should not even be repairing this oven. We should be able to return it for a full refund or an exchange. Oh and the repair guy first attempted to fix the drawer by bending the sides with a block of wood. Now the drawer is bent and the issue was never the drawer, but the bottom element causing the oven to warp downward against the drawer. It is worse than before he came! When the oven cools it pops back up. It is a factory defect and we should not be treated this way! I stopped using the convection after one repair guy reset it over 35 degrees upward. My cookies were burnt in 2.5 minutes and doughy in the middle. I reset it back to factory temp and gave up. The oven bakes fine at reg bake, but the convection part of it sucks! I have spent hours on the phone with Sears Warranty.
I have gone through things like, "We can't find your information," "You didn't buy a new oven," lost information, complaints not being documented after they say they are writing it down on our account. Either they lie about their names or the next person lies about now knowing another Supervisor. I request a Supervisor and they stall and keep asking me how they can help me. Oh and if you call Sears Warranty and get a gal named Kathleen, just hang up and call again until you get a different person. She is the worst. She can't find anything. She can't type even your number in right. I have dealt with her enough to know just to hang up. If you tick her off she'll say she is transferring you, but you'll be disconnected.
We are now considering loading up our oven on a dolly and taking it back to the Sears Showroom with all the receipts and demanding a refund. Wish us luck. DON"T BUY FROM SEARS!!! We have been Sears customers since 1976 and loved them. Now they are the worst company ever! Customers are NOT important to them and neither is keeping their word! Warranty Persons Names to take note of: Kathleen, Milly and Alisha (who now doesn't exist according to Milly).
The stove (2011 Kenmore Elite white double oven stove) was purchased in 8/2011. The puppet oven no longer heats up quickly and takes 45-60 minutes to heat to the desired temperature. Unfortunately, the model number has worn off, and Sears cannot give me a correct model for the double, not single, oven from their records. Therefore, the repair guy left without having done anything except charging $99.00 for the house call. I guess I am going to have to use the one oven that works until it doesn’t. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
I bought back in 2005 a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and oven from Sears. All Kenmore. Well let's see. The refrigerator starting rusting on the outside in about 5 yrs. then the microwave handle broke in about 6 yrs. and the dishwasher panel on the bottom all the paint flaked off and now the oven that I have hardly used has a hole in the inside of the oven... It's a flippin' crack. Rust and more rust where the racks slide... I will never purchase anything from Sears again... This is junk...
I purchased an expensive Kenmore Elite electric stove/oven in 2009 and have had many problems and have spent much money on repairs. Until recently I was unaware of the numerous complaints and lawsuits filed with similar issues. My top burner does not turn off, but remains on and on high. The burner has also turned on by itself when not being used. I have called with my concern for the safety of my family as I believe this to be a fire hazard. I believe this appliance should be recalled, but I have been told that my appliance does not have the model # of the ones that are recalled. We are waiting for another service member but in the meantime worry about the hazard this poses to my family! Sears has offered no help or concern as they believe my appliance is not one of the many recalled. I fear for the safety of my home and family.
I purchased this Kenmore 94173 range online and so wish I did not. My old oven's control panel exploded and I decided to get a new oven versus repairing the old one. I do like the stove. My one issue is keeping the black glass top smudge/fingerprint free. The glass top is just about impossible to keep shiny. I have tried the recommended glass top cleaners by Kenmore and they have failed horribly. No matter which product I have tried, nothing so far has removed the smudges. Even though the glass top is clean, it looks terrible. Really disappointed that Kenmore does not realize the frustration of black glass tops. Now I place teapots and the like on the stove to hide Kenmore's idiocy.
Purchased Kenmore Electric Range Model 9622 Sept. 2007. First use of self-cleaning burned the paint off panel above oven vent (which happens to be RIGHT UNDER THE MAIN CONTROL PANEL!!! Same vent drips profusely during use of oven. Days before Thanksgiving, either 2013, or 2014, large eye on left makes a loud pop, then stops working. Thought it would be no biggie. (Didn't purchase extended warranty). It was a REAL BIGGIE. The problem was in the main control panel. $650 to repair. Twice what I paid for the stove originally!
(Should have just sold it without eye working and used the money to offset new range). Yesterday, while trying to heat the oven just to 375°, it made a HUGE pop and tripped my breaker. It did that twice, then, shut down 2 more times with same loud pop, without tripping the fuse. The last hoorah was when IT WASN'T EVEN BEING USED!!! Same loud pop, and completely shut off. Pulled it out from the wall to find an electrical burn on the wall, and hole burned through the cover plate. Inside, the piece to hold one of the sets of wires is completely melted.
Power went out due to windstorm and when it came back on I realized my Kenmore Elite 42562 4.6 cu. ft. Slide in Electric Range wouldn't work. Sears sent a repairman and it was about $900.00 to repair since it was the electronic controls. The range cost $2000.00 and I had it for just over a year so I wanted it fixed. They said I needed 4 parts, but after almost 2 months I had only received 1 part. Eating out is expensive so it was frustrating. Then I received a call from customer service saying they can't get the parts. Customer service is having the part picked up tomorrow by UPS and will then credit me, but I assume I will be out the cost of my range. I am beyond frustrated and when I looked online tonight the range is still for sale. Do not buy this range!
Sear Kenmore Elite Range 79032363E410 - Oven does not keep temperature at all. One time it just canceled program on its own. Oven is off 20-30 degrees. Tech told me to buy a regular temperature oven gauge which I did. It was off 50 degrees. My oven has been repaired 4 times. They have replaced coils, motherboard and even top ignitor, etc. They told me one more time and I could get a new one. I am having them come out once again to repair because it is doing same thing. I bought extended warranty and glad I did. This is the worst oven.
Originally bought different oven and it was defective and they kept on delivering 4 bad ovens. So they upgraded me to this one so basically this is my 5th oven! If you have a choice-DO NOT BUY any Sears appliance products because I purchased 5 Kenmore Elite products when remodeling and all but my dishwasher had to be repaired or replaced more than once. You can go online to check numbers to see who makes them. Mostly LG makes Kenmore. LG is also bad product. Spend the money if you have and go with a really good oven brand.
Kenmore double wall oven 790.49529312 only 2 years old will not maintain temp. Licensed repairman told me that Kenmore places its name on multiple makes and found it to actually be a Frigidaire product. Guy came to home replaced motherboard for $300.00. Did not fix the problem so used Sears chat to assist w/ diagnosing issue, now being told temp sensors for $132.00 for parts only, need 1 for each oven need to be replaced. Issue is oven will hold temp when empty but try to cook anything in it and it will drop to 200 degrees. Told humidity affects the way oven picks up temp readings. $2799.00 originally priced piece of garbage. Can't talk to actual person unless you can understand a thick India accent. Do not buy from Sears.
This is the worst stove I have ever had, the oven control panel went out one year and two weeks after purchase from Sears, replaced the oven panel cost over $100.00. One year later it has gone out again. BAD BAD STOVE... DO Not buy this stove.
I wanted to buy a new oven for my 88 year old mother who lives in a mobile home. There was only one model, Kenmore 24inch, white, gas model that fit her space. This oven was bought site unseen as there were no floor models available. Installed and with all the extra charges the cost was $1600. The oven itself was 1499.00. I live in another area so upon visiting my mother and seeing the new oven which has absolutely NO BELLS OR WHISTLES. This is a basic on off oven and broiler. OH it does have a clock... What a piece of garbage!!!
The design is stupid with broiler in a bottom drawer, it's barely hot enough on HI to broil anything, the door corners were chipped, the oven glass steams up when using the broiler, the temperature gauge is way off in the oven, the installation looks cheap and incomplete. If I had seen all of this within the 30 day return period this oven would be returned... But my only recourse now is to inform anyone who might be considering this oven to consider that the only pro...is that it is cheap in every way!
I purchased a Kenmore Elite 14 months ago and used the self cleaning for the first time and when I opened the oven after the cleaning cycle was completed the paint on the bottom of the oven was blistered. I have made over 10 calls to Kenmore/Sears and have gotten nowhere because I didn't purchase the extended warranty, so now I have a $1700 oven that I can't use. Kenmore and Sears need to stand behind their products. To everyone that I have shown the pictures of the inside they all say this is a defect and not to use the oven since it's getting too hot that the paint blistered.
We installed a Kenmore gas range top. It is stainless steel and looks spectacular. The range performs extremely well and the temperatures seem to be very accurate. As for the value, again, I think things are grossly overpriced. We have owned this range for over 10 years and have never had the first service call.
Purchased a Kenmore Electric Range in March 2017. Last Monday night 11/06, while using the oven at 450 degrees, the glass in the oven door exploded and shattered. 3rd party technician arrived today for service appointment. Opened the door and confirmed the window was shattered (nice work genius) and informed me that it would take two additional weeks for the parts to arrive. In my opinion, if something this violent happens to a product, then I would say it's defective. I want my defective stove to be replaced!
I have spoke with exactly 10 Sears and Kenmore representatives today and have not received any assistance on the replacement of my defective stove. Even drove down to the store I purchased it from to seek some assistance... That was a useless waste of time! I have even had two representatives tell me that it usually takes seven or eight occurrences or service calls before they deem a product un-repairable and would consider replacing it. So... Kenmore and Sears would rather keep an appliance in service with risk to my family if the window decides to fully explode and shatter, rather than just replacing a range??? I have never experienced such a poor level of customer service as I have today.
This is a perfect example of why the Sears Holding stock is only at $4.50 per share this morning and the fact that they are closing another 100+ stores. They treated me like I was some sort of thieve and all I was trying to do is replace a defective range to keep my family safe. What really blew me away!!! I told the last customer service person that Kenmore does NOT stand behind their quality or product! Freddie's response was that Kenmore doesn't even produce or manufacture the ranges. They are made by Whirlpool and Kenmore slaps their brand name on the product. Freddie wasn't even fazed, almost like he didn't even care. Guess I wouldn't care either if I was working for a sinking ship!
Purchased a Kenmore electric range in 2004 for $299.00 from Sears. Oven and broiler stopped working. Appears to be an electronic control panel problem. This panel sells for at $240.00. This seems very unreasonable. Why is this?
Kenmore model # 79092803013 electric range oven started smelling plastic burn every time I turned on the oven. Well, I should have turned it off but I didn't. Thanks to God it didn't cause any major damages including fatalities. The baking and broiling elements stopped working and decided to open the back panel of the range. To my surprise the control board and the harness was burned and melted until changed to complete black. They should have recalled their products knowing their safety issues. The sad thing is all my appliances are Kenmore. I will never buy their products again. Be Aware!!!
Installers messed up cabinetry, didn't fix. Temp on oven wrong all the time. I had to build a 2" by 18" plug or it would have just been open to under my stairs.
We've had our Kenmore range for 14 years and have never had a problem. Oven works great and temperature is true to the setting you select. Would definitely recommend Kenmore.
Nice range and stove top, but the electronic controller failed, and replacing a couple of circuit boards cost two thirds of the cost of a new range.
Kenmore Elite Double Oven Range 7909731 - I would rate this and Sears customer service at -0- stars if I could. Purchased this range in November 2016. I do a good bit of baking, so paid to upgrade to Kenmore Elite convection double oven. I have purchased Kenmore appliances for over 25 years with no issues. This will be the last one. Began having issues with the convection oven's fan not working or maintaining temperature in December. Raw AND burned cookies. First service call in January. I was told there was nothing wrong with the temperature after the tech shot his laser thermometer in there to check, says I have to wait 15 minutes after the oven SAYS it's preheated to the set temperature and that I shouldn't put more than one thing in the oven... what? That's why you pay more for convection!
He replaced some screws that were sitting in the bottom and left. Whatever... tried baking muffins didn't rise, raw middles and burnt outsides. 2nd service call. The day tech was supposed to be there calls and says not coming, will order a new control panel and reschedule. After replacement, baking takes at least 20 minutes longer than recipe indicates, overbrowning outside. 3rd service call. This tech tells me the oven is 25 degrees over what it should be and recalibrated. Next baking attempt, the temperature decreases to 180. Ok, I'm thinking maybe I hit something.
Next day, baking again. Preheats to 350 and then starts beeping, flashing error codes FJ5. a locked and a 9 with \... Call Sears, tech scheduled for next day between 8 am and 5 pm, will call 30 minutes before arriving. Calls me in driveway and says he will not wait, will not come back and they are not allowed to call before the first call. Was on the phone at least 6 times with Sears customer service. When the tech comes back 5 DAYS LATER, he's never heard of the error codes and is ordering the same control panel that was replaced 6 months ago. This is ridiculous. I will never buy from Sears again. The lack of customer service is appalling.
Kenmore Electric Range Model 790. Do not purchase this product!! The past few years we have been dealing with this range going directly to broil while baking. Almost started a house fire when it first happened. After calling and writing Sears I have gotten no response, no help or assistance with repair and there has been no recall even though I have read hundreds of similar incidents. I have unplugged it, reset breaker, and it works for a week or two then does it again. I have learned to cook using broil but it gets too hot and code error F10 flashes. Absolute terrible product and I am disappointed in Sears for not helping people out and for safety reasons, getting these ranges out of peoples homes. No wonder Sears is all but going out of business. You cannot run a successful business selling this kind of appliance. PLEASE RECALL THIS ELECTRIC RANGE!!
I purchased my Kenmore electric glass cooktop approximately 10 years ago, and it's been the worst stove my husband and I have ever had! Even from the beginning! It takes forever to heat up. I've had cheap stoves that preheat in half the time than this stove and this one cost us a pretty penny! Not to mention the burners that are supposed to be quick boil, HA! It's like that old adage, a watched pot never boils! And the minute we got it home, liquid leaked down the vent holes and got between the glass, and there was nothing in the manual about how to clean it, so there it stayed, disgusting looking for the past 10 years, annoying the ** out of me.
Until today when I saw something on Google and YouTube on how to clean that, FINALLY! So I did. Well, guess what? Those darn vents are extremely DANGEROUS! They are like razor blades. Sears should make those things so they are dull around the edges. I sliced my finger open on them and had to go to urgent care. Why is it so darn difficult to clean inside that glass anyway, yet so easy for it to get dirty? Nobody want drips of grease running down inside their glass forever! Disgusting! Ir to have to injure themselves trying to clean it. On top of that, now my oven front has a gap from the glass! What do I do? I hate Kenmore! Worst oven ever!
My husband and I purchased a Sears Kenmore Stove 15 months ago. Starting in January we had problems with the electronics. We called and it took a repairman 3 weeks to evaluate the stove as he had no idea what was wrong with it. He ordered parts and we called to make another appt when the parts arrived. That took two weeks. He came to install the new parts and found out they were the wrong parts. Another two weeks went by and repairman came and installed new electronic system in stove. We had inquired about another stove but they refused and said this one could be fixed. Within an hour of him leaving the electronics went out again.
Called and made another appt in two weeks time. He came out again and just rewired the original parts and from then on it seemed fine till tonight. We used the oven last night it was fine and came home today and the entire display on the stove is out. No lights to use the oven whatsoever. We had not taken the extended warranty because our parents had Kenmore's for years. We are on a fixed income and do NOT have the money $90 service call and replacement parts of $360 - to spend on the stove. It would be more than we paid for the stove in the first place. I have tried every Sears # I can find and no one is willing to help me - they just say "what do u want me to do". I want my stove fixed the right way and so it lasts.
I purchased this stove (Kenmore Elite Range 79078303013) a couple of years ago. I called to order a replacement part and received the wrong one. Just to get a return label to return the wrong part and get the new one has taken 5 phone calls and over 5 hours on the phone in different occasions! So I called again to replacement the part and it's no longer manufactured! I am being sold a replacement part for 3 times of its original price. I am very disappointed with the quality of the product.
Did I mentioned I purchased a stainless steel range for it to have Plastic all around it? I hate it!!! I feel cheated on this purchase. I didn't notice it was plastic top range trim on the stove until it Broke. By that time it was too late to return. I cook a lot, when ever you use the oven and stove it brakes with the heat. After all it's plastic. After spending 3 hours just today to order part and sure it will fit no solution was made. When I ASKED TO TALK TO A SUPERVISOR OR MANAGER I NEVER GOT TO. Waited over 2 hours just to find my call dropped or accidentally disconnected. Over all I will never purchase from Sears ever again!! This stove is not near a Stainless steel stove. My part was never ordered or my questions were never answered. I have a stove with broken trim fairly new.
In November of 2014 we purchased a Kenmore "Elite" 790 series oven from Sears. On June 12, 2017 the unit caught fire and burned the control panel to a molten mass of wires. Except for extraordinary presence of mind killing the electrical circuit we would have had a serious house fire. I contacted Sears and they refused to repair or replace the unit because it wasn't covered by their warranty. So now I own a $2000.00 range which is apparently only functional for 2 1/2 years. Needless to say I could have leased a range for less money and at least the leasing company would have replaced it. I will never again purchase from Sears.
Kenmore oven Model 790.9745 - We purchased our house in July 2014 and didn't notice at the time that the front glass of the oven was missing. We ordered a new glass front, installed it and a few months later, the front glass exploded and went all over the kitchen. Then we realized that must have been why the glass was missing when we bought the house. We replaced the glass again and the other day the same thing happened. Three times in three years. Each time someone was standing near the oven while it was baking at 350 degrees when the glass exploded. We were lucky no one got hurt.
It was unusual that the dogs or kids weren't in the kitchen with us at the time as they usually are! In addition to the glass exploding three times that we know of, the control panel had a F-10 error which is "run away temperature". The smoke detectors went off in the house to alert us to that problem due to the extreme heat coming from the oven. This oven needs to be recalled. It seems like this is a problem many people have had in reading the reviews!
Kenmore Double Oven Electric Range: The bottom oven is 50 degrees hotter than what the oven is set at. The owner's manual has a section on how you lower or higher the temperature by 35 degrees, but when going through the steps, it appears that the instructions are to change the setting from Fahrenheit to Celsius. So I am unable to use this workaround. It would have only changed it 35 degrees, and I needed it to change 50 degrees. I bought this oven for baking. So it is essentially useless to me.
We replaced our 18-year-old Kenmore Glass Top Range with another one, once we lost a two burners. Because we were pleased with the old one otherwise, we replaced it with an updated and similar model. Although, we like the convection aspect of this range, the glass portion cracked mysteriously and we had to have two associates come out to confirm the problem to replace it under warranty. The newer Kenmore, Whirlpool appliance do not seem as durable as the older one. We are disappointed and will look to other brands in the future. Glass broke within the first 6 months
Kenmore electric range, Model 790.92809012 (6-years old) encountered F10 error (run-away temperature). I set range temperature to 170 degrees for one hour. Our house filled w/ smoke, smoke alarms went off. If our Son had not been home, our pet bird would have died and our grandsons inhaled a lot of smoke. Please remove this range from inventory; extremely dangerous appliance - almost cost lives. Where can I go to get a refund - or replacement model? We are warning our homeowner's insurance company of the danger of this product.
We have enjoyed Sears Kenmore appliances for many years. However, our 6-year-old Kenmore Electric Range (Model 790) encountered F10 error (run-away heat element). I set the temperature to 170 degrees then left for 1 hour. The oven encountered extreme heat, extreme smoke and smoke alarms filled our home (our grandsons inhaled smoke and our home still smells from smoke). If our Son had not been home, our pet bird would have died from smoke inhalation. I highly advise removing the Kenmore range (Model 790) from inventory. Warn your homeowner's insurance company about the danger of this product; lives are at stake!
On opening the Kenmore convection wall oven door, the handle was loose and when I pulled on it, the entire glass door shattered, cutting my hand, ruining food on the counter, spraying glass as far as 12' from the oven. Using a whisk broom, regular broom and the vacuum, we were able to get most of the glass up and then we washed all of the kitchen rugs. If a small child or one of our pets had been next to me, some serious harm may have resulted. I have read about other customers having this problem and that replacing the door is not a safe option - it can happen again. It's a serious design flaw.
I have spent at least an hour or two so far on the phone with Sears and Kenmore, last night immediately after the explosion and then again this morning. They are willing to send a repair tech to assess the problem at a cost to me of $99 because I have no extended warranty. NOT FAIR! This is their problem and they should offer ways to replace the oven with a better design or recompense me so that I can get a safe oven.
Two Sears brand appliances, Kenmore, were in this house when I purchased it October 1, 2015. Both appeared fairly new and were installed during a kitchen remodel by the previous owner. Three months ago I trashed the microwave because it had so many issues. Now the stove Broil element comes on by itself and cannot be turned off at the stove console. The stove gives no indication that anything is turned on.
My kitchen smoke alarm went off while I was in another part of my house alerting me that something is wrong. A glance at the stove, the only source of heat in the kitchen, and there was no indication that anything was on. A quick look in the oven and the broil element was glowing, the oven was very hot, thus the fumes escaping that set off the smoke detector. Nothing would turn it off. I turned off the breaker in the main panel and let the oven cool overnight. The next morning I turned the breaker back on and the oven came on with it, still not showing any indication of heat on the stove control panel.
I Googled "known defects with Kenmore stoves". Seems this is a known problem though Sears hasn't been very helpful getting it fixed. I haven't reported my issue yet, not to Sears anyway. On Monday I'll be seeking legal advice about the possibility of a class action. In the mean time I'll contact Sears for a "comment". This is a safety issue, my house could have caught fire while I was asleep or away and they knew the problem existed but did nothing.
Kenmore glass top electric stove model 790 purchased 2011 - I used the broiler to cook a burger. When it was done, I turned off the oven and left the door ajar. After 15 minutes I heard the oven door fall off, first one side then the other. While screwing the handle screw back on, the whole tempered glass oven window exploded. Thank goodness I had glasses on, a thick shirt, pants and socks or I would have been cut up. My little dog was just behind me but I blocked the flying glass that flew onto counters and into the next room.
When I checked the model no. online I found out that so many of this model have had the glass door explode, that pressure was put on Sears to recall this model. Those who got new glass doors had them explode again and some people had them explode a third time. Also luckily the oven had cooled down when it exploded but many people had hot glass shot at them. This model shouldn't even be on a showroom anymore.
This is the 3rd time I had sears out to fix stove. 1st glass blew out (scratched the whole inside 2nd circuit board/ and now again the circuit board. When you use self cleaning more than 3 times blows board. All in all I have been without the use of my stove about eight weeks. When you call for service and you give them error code. They come out (waiting a week or longer) without parts and you have to wait another 2 weeks for them to fix. Just wish they would credit me and let me buy another brand. This stove is only 1 year old. Very unhappy.
I have had the Kenmore range 7909622240B more than a couple years and this is the first time this has happened to me. I have a 254 pound ham on the rack one slot lower than the middle. I was pulling the rack out to drizzle sauce on it and halfway out the rack fell out of the slot, luckily the ham was not on a higher slot or it would have dumped over. I did however get splattered with melted brown sugar and hit my hand against the side of the oven trying to get out of the way of the falling ham. The brown sugar and grease spilled onto the bottom of the oven smoked and burned! What a mess!
Purchased Elite Gas Range in 2011. Serviced twice after self-clean caused oven control board to fail. I noticed I am not alone. This is not cheap to fix. If you are buying Kenmore, check the service history! Sad to say I will no longer be buying Kenmore appliances. Now a 3000.00 oven!
This is third Kenmore oven electric s/c. First one went into self-clean on its own, nearly burned the house down and completely charred the whole oven. Second one had two major board failures, resulting in the third. This one may or may not respond to control inputs. No more Sears stuff, ever.
3 years ago, I bought what I thought would be my last stove. Brand new Kenmore, with a warming, drawer and burner. Self cleaning. 1300.00 dollar thought it was the best. I'm 60 years of age. I figured I would buy one last stove before I retired. Hey, it's a Kenmore, right? It would be here long after I'm feeding the bugs, right?
WRONG! In less than three years the oven won't heat up passed 200 degrees. The circuit board costs over 200$. I didn't buy the Sears extended warranty. It's a Kenmore!
The independent service man that came out said, he would not recommend this repair, because, this problem would keep occurring. He said, he would not feel like he had done me right, if he had repaired my stove. He charged me nothing, apologized, and left. I stuffed a hundred dollar bill in his shirt pocket, and thanked him. I called Sears. They said, I should have bought the service policy. I won't buy anything from Sears again. I replaced it with a 200$ Plain Jane stove from Lowe's, no electronic, no bells, no whistles. It works just fine!
My Kenmore Built-in oven is a workhorse. I have had one service call in 16 years of using it, and that was due to something I did wrong. I don't know how old it is, but it was built in when we bought the house in 1999. They may no longer be as good, but one can hope.
The range is not bad for the price. It would be nice if it offered a little more room in the oven. It would also be nice if you could get a good peek inside the oven without having to open the door all the time.
I did choose the slide-in model not realizing that there is an oven size compromise, so it is no fault of Kenmore. The programming features are too many to understand, too. But oven and warming drawer work great and the placement of top burners is good, however, I wish there was a medium-size burner for saucepans and also wish I could use cast iron on the smooth top. Overall, I've turned out many great 25 pound turkeys with all the trimmings for Thanksgiving.
This is my first smooth top 2 door oven from Kenmore. Before I had a coil oven which lasted for 23 years. It came with our mobile home and sold it (still in working order) before we got a Kenmore.
The Kenmore stove/range works okay. Not as good as their washer/dryers though. One burner on the stove has not worked properly from day one. Also the glass top burners take longer to heat up. I guess that is because it is energy efficient.
Love my Kenmore gas range w/ convection oven. It has five burners and the one in the center I can use with a flat grill pan. I bake a lot and the oven works and holds the temp great. The oven has a self-clean cycle that works great.
I do not recommend anybody buying Kenmore products from Sears. They seem to care if you have problems but all they're doing is giving you the runaround. They use ARS for their warranty claims and which they are rude and just plain liars... I have taken a day off work as they require a 9 to 5 window for an appointment.
After calling Sears three times during that day to say I haven't heard from the contractor all three times they (Sears) confirmed yes he is coming. The last time I contacted ARS myself as now Sears is closed. They told me he wasn't coming, so a day off work wasted... This has been going on for 4 weeks now, so my conclusion is I threw the Kenmore range out of my house and purchased a different brand. Take my advice. Do not buy Kenmore products. You will be disappointed if something goes wrong.
We bought a new Kenmore electric range model #790.93751102 in 2001. I have not had any problems with the oven until two nights ago. We turned the oven on to 350 degrees and waited for it to preheat. We put cookies in the oven and within a few minutes there was smoke inside. My daughter opened the door which caused flames. She shut the door. Smoke was all over the house and pouring out of the oven. I turned off the oven thinking that would do it. Smoke was still filling the air and the oven was getting hotter. I looked in the door window and noticed the upper element was on.
We decided to turn the breaker off. I'm so glad I did not open the door because we heard a pop and flames came shooting out of the door and then quickly got sucked back in. At that point I called 911. The fire department was dispatched as well as some deputies. We were instructed not to open the oven door until someone got there. By the time the deputies had arrived, the oven was no longer smoking.
When we turned the breaker back on, the upper element went back on, and we hadn't touched the oven. The broiler just turned on for no reason. I contacted Sears, and the technician said he had never heard anything like that happening. I told him he should do a search because I found that there are plenty of us around. I know the unit is not new, but that shouldn't happen. Thank God no one was hurt, but we could easily have been, and our house could have burnt down. I'm glad we did not leave the kitchen to go to another room until the timer went off. Thinking about that makes me shudder.
Range is horrible. Nothing but problems. The igniter went on it 3 times... the safety value went twice on top and bottom... Today it went and was leaking gas all day... Good thing nothing happen to my dog or my house. Piece of garbage. Waste of money. Should've complained more when I bought it. Now it's just an unsafe pile of trash... Don't buy.
This isn't dissatisfaction... it's a HAZARD. Broiler feed tube in back of oven has a hole which guessing formed when a piece of something landed on and reacted with aluminum. Turned broiler on... feed tube emitted gas through tube... broiler lit and whoosh large flame a good foot high and six inches wide emerged from back of oven... luckily I was standing right there. Turned burner and oven off. Flame went out in about 5 seconds... enough to scare the ** out of me! My range is a good 10 years in service... not a problem to be found until this. My opinion... a bulletin should be sent to all owners to check the broiler feed tube!!! Holy Guacamole if I wasn't there, the whole house could've gone up in propane flames. Btw to the editor, yes I'm sure GE does manufacture in the US but they do in Mexico, also... see tag.
I purchased a Kenmore Elite Double Oven Gas Range in November 2011. I also bought an extended warranty. When the range was about 3 yr old the bottom oven failed to heat. It was repaired. Then this past October 2016, the bottom oven wouldn't heat. November 23rd it was repaired. I extended the warranty because with two repairs I wasn't confident with the range. Then on December 20th, I was using the top oven at 400 degrees, and everything was fine. I then turned on the bottom range at 350 degrees, and noticed it wasn't heating after about ten minutes. I opened the oven to see if it was hot. A ball of flames came out at me. I burnt my eyebrows and a good part of my hair. Luckily I was able to shut out any flames on me, and I closed the oven and shut it off.
I called Sears the next morning, rather shaken to report what I consider a safety issue. They scheduled a service call so a technician could access the problem. I told them I didn't want it repaired, only replaced. I got a bit of a runaround. They first came quickly then ordered parts. Sears says it is repairable. They scheduled me for Jan 5th, and I waited all day and no one showed. Today, someone came. I said "I didn't want it fixed." The service man called his supervisor, then Sears directly called me, and said as part of the process I must have it repaired then file a complaint.
When I called they said I should have refused the repair, because now it is deemed in working order. I said "I don't feel safe after my ordeal." The supervisor at customer service said even if I had a brand new stove, no one could guarantee my safety. Talk about confidence inspiring. I let them know I wasn't pleased with that. They then offered me a $630 credit towards a new stove. I paid $2,300. I didn't accept yet, because I don't know if I should.
The oven is fine, though it takes a bit long to preheat. The problem is that the igniters on the range went out, and the only people to work on them come from Sears. And Sears is the literal worst. They've cancelled their repair dates on me twice, causing me to be late for work. The ovens may work for a time, but as soon as they go out, don't expect anyone from the store to be even the slightest help.
Kenmore 790 electric range - I have seen many complaints online and on this site about the glass door of the oven door shattering. Mine did just that, last night when the oven was not in use. I have tried to make Sears aware of the problem. A technician is coming to repair it for an $89 dollar fee. I feel it should be recalled, but at least repaired for free.
I feel Kenmore products are the best. I have a self-cleaning oven and the range is natural gas. It's reliable, about 12 years old, never had a problem. I would always use Kenmore and recommend this item to others.
My 40" stainless steel Elite Kenmore range/glass top looks impressive on first notice. But the design of the rim around the top has caused it to get really scratched in a short period of time (1 year). The drawer below the ovens is very flimsy. The digital oven works great. But the smaller analog oven's thermostat can never be relied on. I love the five burners on the cooktop, two of them having the capability to be two different sizes. I am unhappy with the stainless steel finish... Very hard to clean without streaks. I've tried everything! I needed the 40" size because I live in a 1960s house that requires 40" stove, or a lot of cabinet rehab. I thought the price was too high. But there are very few ranges available in that size.
I purchased a Kenmore oven (model 92703, stainless steel, 5 burner, one rapid boil, convection, self cleaning) from a local Sears appliance store in June 2011 for $850. In December 2015, it stopped working, and the repair guy showed us the electrical panel was burned. We decided to be on the safe side and replaced the whole thing for $330 (plus the $100 service call fee). Almost exactly one year later the broiler element is out, we pulled off the back panel yesterday and sure enough, the electrical panel is burned again. So it's a poorly made product, and it's cost me over $1000 to own this oven for just over 5 years. It was nowhere near worth that amount of money. Don't ever buy a Kenmore range.
We bought a Kenmore Electric Range 790.9420, 9424 just under 2 years ago for $700 (January 2015). The Convection has never been impressive... Following the directions but still burning items (I have since found out that it should've performed much better than that but I had no reference point) and it can't cook more than one item at a time without slowing down the cooking process or burning items. The last straw was two weeks ago, 12/10/16. It made a very loud POP while trying to bake a pizza. It totally stopped baking.
For the last two weeks I have gotten the worst customer service through Sears that I have ever experienced. The local store hasn't been able to help (in fact when I tried to call their listed number, they never answered and then the phone call just cut off after 3 minutes of listening to it ring). I had to go into the store to tell the manager that their phone hadn't worked for 3 days as I had tried to reach them, then the 800 Sears Service number that is listed to call has been just terrible. Those at the 800 number must be trained to never help the customer or admit that their product hasn't delivered as it should have AND they aren't allowed to give out any information on someone higher than their level to complain to... Absolutely no accountability.
The main numbers of 1-800-469-4663 and 1-847-286-2500 have given me NO satisfaction. They have transferred me to Sears Holdings, Sears Solutions, Sears Rewards and NO ONE has been able to help me. All say it is on me, I didn't buy a warranty but that they can come out for $89 to assess it! Are you kidding me? My Stove/oven isn't made to last even 2 years? My phone call issues range from completely dropping my calls, putting me on hold for 25 minutes and never returning to speak to me so I had to hang up and call back and start all over, saying there is no recall or defect on this item so its costs are on me. I have been trying to give Sears some time to take some responsibility for their defective product...
I finally had another local repair man come out and they determined it is the Control Panel... Cost is estimated at $250 (that's just for the item), then add the labor. I called Sears with this information. They have no solution other than to tell me to pay their tech to come out and assess it. I will NOT do that. I will not buy a Sears product ever again and I will do my best to let everyone I know to never buy from there again. Other than the store manager who did a good job "hearing me" but had no authority to help me, I have experienced ZERO customer service. I spoke to the store manager yesterday and there was a sign of a very little movement after I pressed more that my appliance shouldn't break in under 2 years and that anyone must have a warranty for something under 2 years. She was going to contact the Service Factory Manager directly for me. I have doubts that anything will result and plan to buy with a local company.
The individuals on the phone are not accountable to anyone... They don't seem to care if you have a lemon or if you will not do business with their company anymore. I was told if I had an issue and wanted to speak to a manager, that I could call back and hopefully I could get through to the Arizona call center versus the Texas one. Are you kidding me? No accountability, No customer service, No standing behind their products and making it right with customers. Terrible. I/we have many more years of buying power and it won't be with Sears. I really hope my review will prevent someone else putting their money and faith into any Sears products.
Bought Kenmore oven 2 years ago. Stopped working on Thanksgiving. Guy sent to fix it says it needs a new back panel for $500. Kenmore made a shoddy product and should fix their poorly made oven at no cost to us. I will not purchase another Kenmore product ever again. Are we supposed to replace appliances at the same rate we have to replace light bulbs? Kenmore needs to stand behind their products and not make garbage.
August 2015, I purchased a Kenmore Elite Convection Oven MODEL #970C693832. It's a beautiful oven which came with a major problem. The red flag should have been noted when it was delivered, and the glass control panel fell off; this was before it was even brought into my kitchen. I asked them to return it, and we got a new one a week later. Three months in, the same thing happened again; the glass control panel fell off. I called Sears, and they sent a technician to fix it with a new control panel. The technician mentioned to me that the only thing holding the control panel is glue. When the oven is in use, every time I use my oven, the glue is melting away. There's no frame to support it, when the glue melts off. How is this even safe? Last week, the same problem happened again, the glass control panel fell off. I called Sears again.
Today, a technician from Sears came in to check it out and will be fixing it again with a new control panel. So until he comes back, and fixes it, I have to use tape to hold up the control panel in order to use the oven. Luckily, it's still under the extended warranty, but I can't keep calling Sears to replace the control panel every time the glue melts. Instead of sending a technician to fix the same problem, Sears should replace this appliance because this problem will happen again, and they know it. This oven is not good, and I would never recommend it. Sears should do its part and make sure they are selling their customers good appliances that they can rely on.
I am very disappointed with my appliance from Sears, and I wish Sears would make good appliances with top-of-the-line materials and parts. Sears needs to do a quality check assurance on their appliances before they go on the market. We as customers cannot afford to expend so much money on products that either don't last, or have problem with their parts.
My Kenmore Self Cleaning Oven is just over 30 days old and recently used the self cleaning option. I used the 2 hour option since it was a minor splatter on the oven floor. After the cool down and the door released, I noticed two burn marks on the top of the oven door. I did everything the manual instructed including removing the grates, racks and wiping all services before starting the process. I called Sears and they said it was a cosmetic issue and is not covered under the warranty. I think it's a door gasket problem, but they said no. I told the service dept I was very dissatisfied that they would not stand behind their product. All he said was "Sorry".
I purchase the Kenmore Elite double oven approx three years ago. It has been a disaster from the start! The issues was the rewiring needed for the product that I was not told about. This requires an electrician and an extra charge that is Kenmore specific. The first set of ovens did not work at all. After paying the additional cost for the change the ovens were installed and they did not work. The installer could do nothing and I had to call for a repair.
I requested a new set of oven and after a week or two receive a new set. Within 6 month I noticed the doors on the ovens would not close properly and that the calibration was off. I requested another set again to no avail. To date I have had 2/3 additional service calls for the ovens for the same problem. I have requested a new set or satisfaction each time. The most recent repair was in July 2016. Now Nov 26, 2016 they are saying the problem is no longer under warranty for the repair or the extended warranty I purchased. The customer service center has had problems scheduling, sending two repair people or say there is no appointment and then a repairman shows up anyway. This happens even with confirmations and secondary verifications.
There was a time when the Sears brand stood for quality, and great customer service. Those days are no more. I purchased a full suite of appliances for a gourmet kitchen with the Kenmore Elite Brand and the two most expensive items, the fridge and the double ovens have had significant problems and repairs. I have been loyal to Sears and so as my family making it a tradition for over 30 years of my adult life. My parent bought Sears as did my entire family but NO MORE! I will exhaust my points and the boycott will begin. We will NEVER purchase anything from Sears again nor will we recommend the store or their products.
I attempted to retrieve a baked casserole from my Kenmore ceramic-top range/oven and when I bent to reach into the oven, the vented heat blew right at my eyes. I jumped back and almost fell. Eyes were reddened into next day; the left worse than right because I lowered myself with my left side closer to the oven. So far, I enjoy the stovetop and size of the range but the excessive heat at eye level seems like a flaw in the overall design and dangerous. Is there any recall or repair that should be done?
The Kenmore Gas Range 7290 we bought from Sears has been a real letdown. The Electronic oven control board continues to need replacing. Even the last one we ordered from Sears didn't even work when we installed it. They have to send us another one to replace it. There needs to be a recall on this gas range. It's a dud and a waste of a lot of $$.
Purchased the Kenmore Electric Range Model #790-94182310 in March of 2015. Used mostly the top, some baking but no more than 10 times a month. Babied this range! Wiped up any spills myself. However had a spillover and decided to do the first self-clean. Range is 1 year and 8 months old. The error code came on flashing F-10 on the display. I hit the off button but the F-10 continued to flash. Turned off electric supply at the breaker. Never had a ring or anything other than the F-10 to alert me.
By the time it cooled, I had done the research for troubleshooting which was very helpful through YouTube by a Sears technician. We learned there was probably a temperature sensor problem. We also learned how to test it and the control panel. After removing the back panel, we discovered they both were heat-damaged. Part of the control panel was blackened by fire. The odor that I smelled and thought was the cleaning, was the plastic around the panel and the elements within the control panel.
Called Sears - they offered to send a technician that would cost $89, then of course it would need the parts. Didn't bother finding out what that would cost. Did not buy the extended warranty. Who would have thought that the first time you self-cleaned an oven it would catch something on fire!!! Very unsatisfied. We are going to attempt to fix it ourselves but we do not intend to ever purchase Kenmore again. Loved my KitchenAid that I had for years and only got rid of it because it was black and I wanted to change to white. Needless to say, we are angry. Also said they could not find where there was a recall on the range. Gave me another to call which I will do. Now to hope for a recall which I feel is necessary!!! I have pictures but for some reason says file type not accepted???
On September 17, 2016, I was baking a batch of cookies in my Kenmore range/induction stove/convection oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. When I went to open the door to check the consistency, the oven door exploded, sending shards of glass everywhere in my kitchen/dining room. I have taken pictures of the aftermath, along with replacing the range that exploded. I have kept the Kenmore range for further investigation.
When opening oven door on Kenmore wall oven, handle fell off one side and glass door exploded into me. There were shards of glass everywhere, even countertops, and I had a small cut on my foot. The company is sending a repairman who we have to pay $250, despite all the phone calls and emails to corporate. We feel this was a defective piece of equipment, and seeing several other complaints of similar happenings, I feel we should not have to pay for service call or the repair/replacement. I will never buy Kenmore products again after this incident. And will do my best to spread the word.
Kenmore Ultra Bake Oven - So apparently this is a thing with Kenmore ovens? I was not in the kitchen when I heard a pop followed by lots of crackling. No one was near the oven, thank god. The oven is 8 years old, but we really don't use it often and do not treat it roughly. There is no good reason why an oven door should explode. This seems to be a well-known problem and yet there are no consumer warnings on new ovens and no recalls that I can find. These ovens are dangerous and should not be in people's homes. Kenmore should take responsibility for creating an inferior product instead of blaming this obvious defect on consumer use. Very disappointed.
I spent two hours trying to talk with someone that would help me find out if there is a recall on my range. The outside glass of my oven shattered in the middle of the night. Luckily no one was near the range. I had glass everywhere. I did notice on this site that there was a similar case on Aug 2, 2016, so I wanted to talk with someone to investigate this problem. After spending much time trying to talk to a real person then finally talking with a person that wanted to send a technician to diagnose what my range needed and the cost to have a technician come to my home would start at $89.00, I gave up and just ordered the glass. I am very worried that this has happened more than two times and someone could seriously get hurt.
Burn hazard due to oven racks falling. Apparently this is a well-known and well-documented hazard. These ovens are manufactured by Frigidaire for Kenmore and Jenn-Air with only the cosmetics being different. Same defect in both. Jenn Air has recalled and replaced the defective products, Sears is in denial. The problem is that when the self-cleaning mode is used, the oven sidewalls expand, allowing the racks to fall, resulting in burns. So far, we've been lucky, but if a small child or pet were in the vicinity... it could be tragic. We purchased all high end Kenmore Elite when we redid our kitchen. The 'factory' service was a joke. We filed a complaint with the Consumer Product Safety Commission and will be sending a demand letter to Sears and Frigidaire.
I came home to find glass on my kitchen floor and in the dinning area next to the kitchen. Further investigation lead me to the Kenmore gas range oven door. I purchased the range january 2011. Glass was everywhere. No one else lives in my home. I very seldom use the oven. Nothing fell, nothing mysteriously hit the oven door. I called sears to no avail. I purchased a $275.00 moderated protection plan. If this has happened to anyone else please provide me with what you did to resolve the issue. Thanks.
Twice now coming home my Kenmore stove has turned itself on by the handle. Nobody was home. I could not figure out how it could happen until I read this happened to others. Very dangerous gas smell. I felt like I would pass out. BEWARE!
I purchased a Kenmore Electric Built-in oven, model 790 in 2011. Today the fan will not shut off. I had to turn the breaker off. The oven racks are also falling down which is becoming extremely scary and I am afraid to use the oven. I will be calling Sears tomorrow but suspect after reading all these other similar reviews to expect nothing from Sears other than to say they will send someone out. What happened to dependable products and dependable stores? I always looked to Sears and their products in the past but no more!!!
I've had this range for 6-7 years now. The motherboard was replaced 8 times in 4 years (fading, blinking, etc) and yet Sears would NOT replace it, they did extend my warranty one time, but it's the absolute worst. If this range (Gas, Elite, Model 790) is not a lemon, I don't know what is. The repair guy (Mikey, on a first name basis because he was here so much) came to replace it one time and the one he brought, brand new, didn't work. I would never purchase another Sears product. Kenmore used to the Gold Standard and Sears used to be the King of customer service, no longer.
Motherboard causes oven to overheat to the point it could cause a fire.
Think twice before buying!! My husband and I paid a small fortune for a Sears Kenmore range one year ago. We thought we were buying a dependable appliance to feed our family. What we bought was a nightmare in a crate. Less than one month after buying the stove, it suddenly locked and we couldn't open it. A technician visited our home and decided due to an electrical problem, the entire thing needed to be replaced. Two weeks later, Sears finally managed to deliver our brand new stove. The replacement lasted 5 months until the motherboard completely fried resulting in another technician visiting our home.
We had to wait another week and a half for the newest replacement. It has been 4 months and we discovered this morning that the stove will not turn on at all. Upon calling Sears customer service, we were told the technician will be here in a few days. Hopefully this time we will not have to wait as long to have a device with which to prepare food for our family. This appliance should have come with a "money pit warning" as that is the only experience we have had with this purchase. We will certainly never buy appliances from Sears again!
I sent an e-mail a couple weeks ago with no response, so I contacted Kenmore yesterday regarding the self-cleaning of the gas range which left spots on the bottom of my oven. I did everything the manual stated to do and also took out the racks and self cleaned them myself. The representative on the phone told me to put a hot cloth with white vinegar over the area, and then I may have to rub the area, if that didn't work to take a razor blade and lightly go over area and the spots would be removed. After trying both methods neither worked. I phoned again and another representative told me she could have a tech come out the following day but it would cost me $75.00 or $39.00 a month to cover all appliances in the house. I told her absolutely not and informed her that I would not be purchasing anymore Kenmore products.
Then out of curiosity I wondered how much the part would cost just to replace it and after researching on the internet the part was $60.00. So therefore I would have had a tech come out for $75.00 then probably charge me at least $100.00 for the part and to replace it, what a rip-off. Other customers please do research before falling for this scam.
I purchased the double oven range in 2006. Since that time I have continued to experience problems with the main board electrical panel. It has continued to malfunction by going completely blank, beeping randomly, not allowing buttons to be pressed, turning off while in mid-cook and more issues of inconvenience. I have had service on my range performed by Sears-certified technicians several times and the issue continues to re-occur. Service dates and costs issues include: June 30th 2014 - main board electrical panel replaced for a total cost of $413.12 August 27th 2014 - main board electrical panel replaced. November 4th 2014 - main board electrical panel replaced. December 10th 2014 - main board electrical panel replaced and broiler burner fixed.
Since that time I have continued to experience the same problem with the main board electrical panel. The range has again begun to malfunction to the point where it has become nearly inoperable. I have recently called Sears-certified technicians and was informed that there was nothing they could do and I would again need to pay $400-$500 for a service visit and part to repair the same issue again.
Given the multiple issues with the same part, I feel there is a defect either with the parts or with my specific range that should be repaired or replaced without any additional costs from the consumer. I purchased a top of the line oven and have continued to experience the same problem even after multiple attempts of repair and additional money that has been put into a unit that should still be working properly.
I purchased a Kenmore Electric Smoothtop Range Model #79092302014 in May 2012. In February this year (2016) the baking element stopped working. I called Sears (where I had purchased it) and they told me I needed a new baking element for $118.25 plus $10 shipping (!), so I ordered it. The repairman suspected the problem might not really be the baking element at all, but since Sears was so positive that was it, he installed the new baking element. It did not work! So I called to Sears to ask how to return it and they told me it was not returnable since it had been installed. They went on to say that if I hadn't installed it, they would take it back! This made no sense at all -- how on earth would one know it didn't work if one did not install it?
The rep told me it was just too bad, that I was stuck with the new $130 part, and that I'd just have to buy a new range. Unless I wanted to pay Sears to send out a repairman for a flat fee of $120 before making any repairs, but since it was out of warranty it was unlikely that whatever the problem really was would be covered. After only 2-1/2 years! Kenmore used to be the best! Now, they've slipped so far that I will never buy another Kenmore appliance. I will definitely report this to the CEO of Sears.
I have a Kenmore Elite electric range model 790-98023800. Have seen many many complaints about the sides expanding and not holding racks. 2 weeks ago taking roast out of oven, rack falls to bottom of oven and burns my arm, roast & juice all over bottom out the door on floor & under oven itself. Why is not a recall on this oven model 790*. They don't even make parts for it anymore. Contacted Sears (where we purchased & their remark was it is Kenmore's problem). Spare me! Where do we go for help for getting some sort of resolve for this matter?
Both ovens, clock, all electrical components are out. Range hood keeps blowing lightbulbs. We bought the appliances new in November 2014, and thankfully have an extended warranty which we bought through our builder. Sears initially refused to admit we had a warranty and wanted to charge us a 75.00 service fee plus parts and labor. After pulling out all paperwork and calling back to Sears they admitted we purchased the 5 year warranty. We are still waiting to see how the repair service goes. But really - 1.5 year old ProSeries Double Oven & Convection - out completely. POOR QUALITY, I will never buy Kenmore again... Buyer beware.
I have loved my Kenmore Elite range model 79098023802 made by Electrolux for 6 years until this weekend. The range expands when cooking and the racks fall to the bottom causing everything to spill. I contacted Sears and was told that this happens after using the self cleaning feature which apparently damages the oven walls, the oven will now expand when using the oven making the racks fall. I would have to have the whole interior replaced for $300.00. When I asked if this would happen again after replacing the interior I was told it was possible. This is clearly a manufacturer defect and Sears/Electrolux should stand by their product regardless if it is under warranty. My husband is recently unemployed and we are unable to fix the problem which Sears/Electrolux should take responsibility for a faulty product!!
Large oven, heavy iron burner grills, timer, electronic lighters. Like it all except the push button controls for the oven etc. were not very sturdy and the mounts broke and had to re-enforce and remount the panel from the inside. Only one problem... That of the control panel mounting weakness. Have had a great experience with all my Kenmore products and see no reason not to continue buying them in the future when needed. The products are solid and the prices are very reasonable for a great dependable product.
Purchased Kenmore Stainless Steel Cooktop Stove Sept 2015, now 5 months old, noticed rust bubbling up on the front door and lower draw panel about two months ago. At first I thought it was just a food stain but it would never clean up. Contact Sears repair, repairman sent and I was told not covered under their one year warranty because it is a cosmetic issue. I was then told that the stove is not really all stainless steel but partial and has other alloys mixed into it which is probably why it is rusting. I said that nowhere did it say this is not a 100% stainless steel and this is a definite consumer fraud, and misrepresenting the product as stainless. He said "that is the way they all are at the $500 price you paid. Pure stainless steel stove would cost $4,000-$5,000." I was mislead to believe this was a stainless steel product, I am left with a new rusting 5 month old stove that no one will do anything about. BEWARE OF YOUR NEXT RUSTING KENMORE PRODUCT!!
The Kenmore Electric Range model #790.9011 is a traditional coil top stove that I purchased in 2011. Within 2 years of this brand new purchase I had to replace a burner fuse. The part costs $30. Within 5 years, there was a flash of light and a small explosion at the oven control panel and then it went blank. The part cost $170 to replace, assuming that would fix it, according to a parts store expert (he was a former repairman). I didn't think it was worth replacing and had to get a new range. The warranty was for only one year on the Kenmore and according to a store salesman all range brands only have a one year warranty today too.
Manufacturers online claim that these types of ranges should last about 16 years. I have since found out that although the latest version of this Kenmore stove rates well with Consumer Reports, it is made by Electrolux, which has a poor repair history and poor brand reliability, according to Consumer Reports. It looks exactly like the Kenmore I bought 5 years ago. I wonder if the Kenmore I purchased in 2011 was also an Electrolux model. I definitely don't recommend the Kenmore Electric Range.
I purchased a new electric Kenmore cooktop at Sears in Laredo TX on October 13, 2015 and in LESS than 4 months the cooktop started sparking and cracked the cooktop. The services man came and took pictures and reported to the Sears Service Department. Later that same day service man called and told me it was NOT covered for repairs. He himself could NOT believe it and told me to go and complaint to the Sears department manager (Vicky), which I did the following day and I was promised a call back the same day which didn't happen the next THREE days so I returned to the Sears General Manager and he had to follow service department decision. P.S. I purchased all my new home appliance that same month at Sears. I can't believe this.
I was cooking a frozen pizza Wednesday night when I heard a loud breaking of glass. It was my oven door. The whole glass shattered. Thank God something was holding the glass together avoiding glass on the floor this time! Yes, this has happen twice since buying it brand new in 2014!!! Thinking about a lawsuit because they want me to pay because it's not under a warranty anymore! Very mad without an oven in a two year old house!
We purchased new Kenmore Elite gas oven/range, refrigerator, and dishwasher a little over 2 years ago. A few months after the warranty ran out, the refrigerator fan started making terrible noises. The dishwasher, floor pan started to rust inside, and the gas stove ignitor switch assembly failed. These appliance are incredibly poorly built, and Sears is trying to stay in business by browbeating you into a lifelong expensive service contracts, which end up costing far more than just buying good appliances to begin with. Don't even THINK about purchasing Kenmore appliances. PLEASE find people who have 1 1/2 or 2-year-old Kenmore appliances and talk to them *first*. I would never ever buy another Kenmore appliance again.
In April of 2011, we purchased model 790.48763900 Kenmore (Electrolux Canada). We had problems with length of time and reliability of oven temps. so didn't use it much. After exactly one year, 4 days out of warranty, the racks in the oven started falling, splashing food and ruining baking projects. Called for service and was told that the sides had bowed out because of use of foreign made cheap materials. I was charged $75 for this good news. He could replace the interiors for $400 per oven! I called Sears Service(?) and was moved, transferred, Blue Ribbon Service, etc. as in other posts.
Absolutely no satisfaction or solutions but to spend $800. They had "never heard of this problem". Baloney... stonewalling and not admitting inferior production materials. I reported to Consumer Product Safety Commission and related other posts. No satisfaction there either and no follow up. Why are they there? Only satisfaction is to get the word out to avoid ever purchasing another Kenmore, Electrolux product. American steel, manufacturing and customer service... RIP.
2 years ago we bought a Kenmore oven. After several months of having it, I decided to use the self cleaning option. Our oven had no built up grease, and it really wasn't dirty because I take really good care of my things. I read the directions and proceeded. I have done this many times before with other stoves and no problems. After an hour I started smelling an odd odor. My husband said, "that is normal, that is the cleaning odor you are smelling from the burn off of the cleaning process." I said I know that smell you are talking about and this seems different. It smells like burning wires or rubber. He said "don't worry."
After 1 1/2 hours it looked like there was smoke in the kitchen and I said I was too scared to leave the oven on, and the smell just got worse. I shut the stove off and waited until you were allowed to open it. The very top of door turned a yellow brown and the seal around the glass on the inside oven door melted. I am horrified to think what would of happened if I kept the stove on the time the manual said to? I have never used the self cleaning option again.
Sears refused to do anything about it. We wanted the door replaced and they suggested a fifty dollar gift card instead! We are now having to replace this stove because I am afraid to use it. Several times after that sometimes when you would turn it on, there would be an unexplained smell, like burning. I was really scared the other day, I turned it on to my normal cooking temp. of 350 and it smelled like wires burning. I quickly turned it off and will now never buy a Kenmore or a stove from Sears again!!!
We purchased this Kenmore range (Model C970 600531) December 2014. I decided the oven had enough splatters to start the self-clean, lightly soiled 2 hour cycle. It was on for about an hour when we heard a loud pop! The inner glass window shattered. I was shocked. I have owned self-clean ovens before and have never had an issue. Of course, warranty is off so have ordered the $200.00 replacement glass unit. Sears gave me free shipping for my inconvenience however I have to wait a month before I get it. I am so disappointed. I now find out this is a common occurrence with these ranges and I can tell you that I will never purchase another appliance from Sears even though we have supported them all our married lives, through many appliances and have never had an issue. Their suggestion is to pay for a Protection Agreement to cover this if it happens again.
Yesterday while baking, the inner glass door of my 3-year-old Kenmore oven exploded, sending hot glass shards onto my kitchen floor and into the oven. Has anyone begun a class action lawsuit regarding this product? I have read numerous online reports that Sears does not back this product by repairing or replacing the oven door or damage to the owner. I attempted reporting to Sears customer service and was guided to how to dispose of the oven.
Model 790.7323 - Last year, after the Kenmore stove that had been in the condo since 1982 had a meltdown and I went and replaced it. I do not cook. Use the microwave or toaster oven. I recently gave the toaster oven away to clear up counter space. Decided to heat up some Publix side dressing. Tried it again around Thanksgiving and it was dead. I got the oven in April 2014, and believe it or not, I am not I do not cook. It is just two aging dogs and me. I work, so it is usually a microwave meal. It still looks showroom new.
I called Sears, and they will do nothing. They want to send me an outrageous warranty for a year, which will cost more than the stove and send out a tech at 60 a pop until they fix it. One time and it quit working! I think they should take the stove back and replace it! I was not even cooking -- just reheating! Sears used to mean Quality! Go elsewhere next time. I will never ever step in a Sears Store!!!
I have owned all Sears appliances for the last 33 years. Until now I will no longer purchase them. Our electric range 790 was on preheat and began to flash lights on the clock screen off and on then made a loud pop noise. Started to spit sparks along with loud static noise. Then fire came out the back and black smoke. I had my son help me pull the oven away from the wall and unplug it. If I wasn't home when this happened I don't think I would have a house to come home to. I will no longer buy any Sears appliances.
We own a Kenmore Elite double oven that will no longer hold the racks in place in the bottom oven. This is a very dangerous defect that has caused multiple spills and also burns. Sears claims to be unaware of this defect event though there are many complaints about this same problem on the internet. The problem is caused by the walls of the oven bowing out due to regular use and cleaning of the oven. Sears refuses to issue a recall on the oven and has offered to provide a service call at our expense which does not even guarantee that it can be fixed properly. If this were a car, I'm sure it would have to be recalled but I do not believe there are adequate consumer laws that cover appliances. Sears does not stand behind their products.
I purchased a Kenmore stove in September of 2013. The other night after baking a pizza, I turned the stove off by pressing the "Stop" button on the control panel. The panel started to spark, and then caught on FIRE! I was able to put the fire out, pulled the stove away from the wall, and removed the back panel. The control panel was completely burnt. Sears informed me that I should have bought the Master Protection Agreement for circumstances like this. It is 2 years old. Sears refused to stand behind their product and Vanessa, the company rep, informed me that I should have had it serviced yearly like it states in the manual. Nowhere in the manual does it recommend removing the back panel and checking the motherboard to see if it might potentially catch fire.
Sears only attempt to make this right was to try and sell me a protection plan in case it happened again. An internet search showed that Kenmore stoves are known for this problem, but nothing is being done to correct it. I caution any buyer, DO NOT PURCHASE A KENMORE STOVE, and I would highly recommend that due to Sears lack of concern, do not purchase anything from this company.
Defective and dangerous. Stove five years old. Walls of the oven suddenly retracted. Racks don't fit and they fall. It cannot be repaired, unless the oven is replaced at a big cost. I won't buy a Kenmore stove again, and won't recover to anybody. They are dangerous. There are a lot of people with the same complaint and Sears won't do anything about it.
We purchased a Kenmore Elite range in 2012. It worked well for a while then the computer board failed and the oven would not heat. This first occurred December of 2014. I was without an oven for the entire month of December. Then on November 28, 2015 the same issue started. We called for repair and were treated rudely and they would not re-order the same parts from last repair, so we had to wait for a tech on December 2. The tech came out. He was rude and not helpful. He didn't even inspect the oven. He said it was the computer board and ordered the part. We then had to wait for parts to arrive and schedule the next available appointment on December 11. The tech installed the board and the oven worked for 4 hours and broke again.
We called customer service again and we were told that there was nothing he could do for us because it had not been 24 hours since the tech was at our house. He did say he would put a notation for the tech to call us the next day. No one called on December 12, so on December 13 we called again. The CSR finally agreed to order the parts without waiting for a service call, and scheduled the next available date for repair on December 21. We specifically said we did NOT want the same tech to come out. On December 21 we were quite shocked when the same tech showed up, was as rude as ever, refused to the install the board and only installed the igniter (which he failed to order on the first repair). All in all, my oven was broke for almost the entire month of December. I will NEVER make another appliance purchase from Sears again.
Purchased a replacement Kenmore model 79094192310 convection range in January 2015. In December 2015, oven heat went wild and would not turn off until I turned off breaker. Called service since still under one year warranty. Girl assured me it was a bad heat probe, even though I told her I was sure it was a blown controller. Delaying Christmas baking waiting a week on scheduled tech and probe. Of course, tech arrives and assures me the controller is bad. Although his computer said he had the part on his truck, he did not and ordered replacement scheduled for yet another week later. Totally unacceptable. I then ordered the part online from another supplier with one-day shipment. Paid for the part myself. I will install myself. Tech assured me the range was made by Frigidaire, however, part supplier told me this model is made by Electrolux. Whatever. Poor quality. Will never buy Kenmore again. BUYER BEWARE!
I bought a Kenmore gas range at Sears. 4 months later the oven control went off. Because the appliance still on the manufacturer warranty I called to Sears customer service (the worst customer service I ever contacted). They set me an appointment for the next three days. I was waiting on the technician and never showed up. I called back again to Sears and then they give me a number for a company named GKB services (I don't know who is more incompetent, Sears customer service or GKB services) that is going to "fix" my appliance. GKB send me back to Sears, and Sears send me to GKB.
Thanksgiving day was a nightmare thanks to Sears and GKB services, (I have to eat Kentucky Fried Chicken for my Thanksgiving dinner). However it has been 2 months and the stupid Kenmore gas range still without to get fixed. I don't know what to do. Nobody help me to fix that appliance, (I'm really disappointed until the point to go to Sears to dropped the stupid appliance) with my frozen turkey, that I never get cooked. I tried everything and both Sears and GKB doesn't fix my range. Did someone know what can I do to get the appliance fixed?
This range has given us problems since the beginning. The racks don't slide well and can cause burning because they get "stuck" when trying to move them in and out. The range was almost brand new and I had to have the panel with controls replaced because it cracked, then a year later we had to have the whole cook top & burners replaced. Every time I use the self-cleaning feature, the top of the oven door gets a burn mark on it so now it is all brown making it look terrible in our new kitchen. It even melted the whole side of our microwave on the counter nearby in the self-cleaning mode. I had a tech out and he said it was safe and just to keep using it. I don't feel safe and it looks like trash. I called the resolution hotline and got a person who was from another country and I couldn't understand him so I asked for the corporate office. I was put on hold then disconnected immediately.
I called right back and again, got a person I could not understand... She refused to give me the corporate number but transferred me. Now they tell me it should be safe and the burned top of the oven door is "just cosmetic" and they will not replace the door or the range. This is unacceptable and no consumer should have to accept having a range in their new kitchen that is brown and burned. The fact that it also melted the microwave nearby on the counter, does NOT make me feel safe in any way. The representative said I had to have 4 documented service calls for this problem and that the tech that was out to check it, stated it was safe. It is the most frustrating thing & I will not purchase any Sears products in the future, nor should you!
I just purchased this range Friday after Thanksgiving 2015 and less than a week the burner caps got SOMETHING on it and it won't come off. The touch pad is ultra-sensitive when cleaning. (You can turn on the warmer, oven light, or even set the timer.) This is very frustrating. You have to WIPE WITH A WET, SOAPY cloth then a dry, no lint cloth so that it doesn't smudge. That also goes for the stainless. This range costs a mint too much to have to go through the inconvenience of this clean-up. As far as all the functions of the range, they seem to be working fine. Give me a couple of months and I will get back to you as to whether I am satisfied with this purchase.
Kenmore Elite electric range # 7909802. We have had this range for six years and today the rack in the bottom oven fell, spilling the Thanksgiving turkey all over. We have called Sears about the problem and they want $120 to have a man come out to look at the range. We are not the only ones that this has happened to doing a internet search revealed a long list of unhappy customers some have been injured because of the faulty ovens.
The racks in my oven started to fall off the supports on the side of the oven, dumping my casseroles, turkeys, roasts etc. I noticed it for the first time the first Christmas that I was roasting a heavy turkey and when I leaned in to remove the turkey; the rack collapsed under the roasting pan, spraying hot turkey fat all over the oven, the floor and me! I assumed I had done something wrong such as put the wrong rack in the wrong position. It continued to happen whenever I cooked something heavy until 3 years later everything I try to cook causes the racks to collapse. A service technician verified what I suspected. The oven body has expanded (probably because of inferior materials). I can no longer use my 3 year old oven and Sears as well as Electrolux (the manufacturer) refuse to do anything about it as I did not purchase an extended warranty. I will never purchase Kenmore appliances again!!!!
I own a Kenmore Range Model # 790.97453804. It's about 5 years old. Last night just after dinner the glass on the front of the door exploded! Shattering into pieces all over our kitchen for no apparent reason. I contacted two numbers, one for Sears, and one for Kenmore. Neither customer service person would do anything to listen to my problem or what happened. Like little programmed robots they repeated over and over it is out of warranty and they will send a technician out to assess what needs to be fixed at which time I can pay them for the repairs plus labor or pay for the service call.
I decided to go online and order the parts myself. During the course of conversation with the repair specialist I find out: 1) This is a known issue. 2) The stove was manufactured by Frigidaire. 3) It's an issue with insulation in the door frame (part #7 on the diagram of the door). 4) The manufacturer recommends you replace it every 18 months. To which I responded, "and how are we supposed to know that?" Technician responded "I am the parts specialist and we have the resources from the manufacturer." It's extremely sad that something as dangerous as this can continue and nobody is doing anything about the defective product.
After the second self clean on our Kenmore convection oven that we paid 1799.00 21/2 years ago the paint under the top and the door is now rusted because the paint melted from the self cleaning. Also the button for the warming over turned brown. I will never buy a Kenmore oven again that was an expensive lesson.
We have had this oven for 5 years. In the 5 years that we have had it it has had a minimum of 2 repairs. I clean it with the automatic cleaner and something burns out in the oven. The last time I needed to wait several weeks for the part and make a second appointment for 2 servicemen to come out to pull the oven out of the wall. It is so obvious that there is a flaw with this oven. Again, I made the mistake of using the automatic oven cleaner and I am again without an oven!! It is so frustrating and Sears suggested that I google it. Not the kind of service I expect. I will never buy a Sears product again. Very disappointing.
Just purchased a gas convection style freestanding oven Model# 790-74239311. After first week light bulb in oven burnt out. Finally replaced last week and it just burnt out again. What gives? I have been very satisfied with the baking performance, but can't bake in a dark oven!!!
Kenmore Elite dual oven Electric Range Model 790. Purchased this stove in late 2009. Within months, the touch sensors on the back panel would work only intermittently. Called Sears to have repairs made to my new stove and they "walked us through" pressing lots of buttons on the display board to "reset" it. Problem persisted, but didn't have the time/energy to look into it further. Months later, the top oven stopped working correctly. Not sure what happened, but anything we cooked was raw on top and burned to a crisp on the bottom. A few more calls later to their "service department" where, once again, they "walked us through" the process of turning the top oven on to as hot as it would go. Recording the temperature using a thermometer we had to place in the oven, turn the oven down, wait for it to cool down, record the temp, etc., etc.
Again, we gave up and decided my time is more valuable than a working top oven and had already spent HOURS on the phone being shuffled around from department to department (Warranty Dept, Customer Service, Customer Solutions, Home Warranty, back to customer Service where I was transferred incorrectly back to Home Warranty...). So, we lived with an intermittently working board and now a clearly improperly heating top oven. BUT - we didn't buy the extended warranty so we were now out of luck since a year has since passed.
Fast forward three blissful (not) years with this piece of crap oven and we start to notice that the racks in the bottom oven seem to be very "loose". Hmmmm. Take all racks out, rearrange them thinking that perhaps they have designated slots in which each rack fits, but they all seem to have the same problem. On the phone to Customer Service we go... And again we are transferred all over the organization until finally we land upon a person that might be able to help me. IF we are willing to pay $280 for a "service contract" upon which they will send a tech out to make repairs up to $500. If I don't want to go that route, I could always sign up for a Home Warranty ($55/month for 1yr contract or $35/month for 1yr contract for appliances) OR a Service Smart Agreement - again for repairs UP TO $500. After that, I pay for it... Oh yeah, I had to pay either a $90 or $60 service call each time a tech came out.
At this point, my life is getting shorter and shorter and I decide I can't spent any more time being dragged around by the nose by Sears any longer and wave the white flag - until one day, I leaned down (to the floor, because this is where the bottom oven is) to lift a roast out of the oven and the racks suddenly collapse spraying bubbling, scalding juice all over the front of my arms, chest and legs. The oven walls seem to be expanding every time we turn this thing ON! I'm now down to ONE rack in the bottom oven, a non-functional top oven (unless you like your cookies and biscuits raw on the top and charred on the bottom) and an intermittently working sensor - that, by the way, I rely on to use the top burners. If I could give this stove - and Sears Customer Service (I'm looking at you, Cheryl) negative stars, I would.
I tried today to give it one more go at getting this thing serviced by Sears since the aluminum foil that I've had to wrap around the sides of the racks in the oven (so that they will take up some space and not collapse on me under the weight of a casserole dish) is going to need to be beefed up soon, but it was once again fruitless. I spent HOURS on the phone going through the merry-go-round of transfers from one department to another and in the end, spoke with NINE different people in different departments until I ended with the above esteemed Cheryl in Customer Solutions who listened patiently to my story (which, by this time I had been a little sick and tired of reiterating) and went on to tell me that since I hadn't purchased an extended warranty through them that I was out of luck.
Really? Even though my first call to complain about this happened within months of owning it - when it was under the one year warranty? Again, she called to my attention that I "never even had a service person out to my house". Yeah, no kidding Cheryl, because they had ME to do the work for them - which I did, by spending hours over the phone pressing this button, relaying the info to the tech on the phone, pressing that button, relaying the info. etc, etc. Sears did a really good job of stringing me along long enough that I was out of warranty and they could wash their hands of the whole thing.
For generations, my family has been die-hard Sears appliance customers and have always had excellent products and service. That is a thing of the past. Get you in, sell you the appliance, and get you to spend even MORE money on a warranty. God knows one shouldn't expect a $2000 stove to last longer than a year... I'll be buying my appliances locally from here on out.
I selected the Kenmore Electric Double Wall, Built In Oven 30", Model 790 48772901, October 2013, during the new construction of our retirement home. The oven was installed by a professional, licensed electrical contractor. My average usage of this oven was about one or two times a week; a little more frequently during the winter months. At about nine months old, the blower motor began making noises. My husband, a retired HVACR business owner, took apart the oven and found that the motor bearings were seizing up on the cooling/ventilating motor due to cheap manufacturing, not enough applied bearing oil, and poor design - the cooling/ventilating motor sits on top of the oven; consequently, absorbing a tremendous amount of heat. My husband was able to apply a large bath of (top of the line) bearing oil to keep it from seizing and we managed to limp along for about a year with this garbage cooling/ventilating motor.
I went to the Kenmore parts site today to order a replacement. I was astounded to find that the website couldn't find the model number of my two year old oven! After several attempts, I gave up and went to another site (non Sears) that provides parts for multi brand appliances. Not only were they able to cross reference the part number for the cooling/ventilating motor, it was in stock and available for shipment immediately. Of course, the out of pocket cost was over $60.00 for a motor that, in the commercial refrigeration trade, would cost one about $20.00. I shudder to think of what Sears would have charged for the part! Not to mention the service call fee.
I went through each page of the accompanying owner's manual and schematics and found nothing with regard to a cooling/ventilating motor part number. The only information shown was the error codes. Of course, if the error code ** flashed on the oven screen, the consumer was advised by Sears to call their service department. Imagine that! These people don't want Harry Homeowner to repair their Kenmore items! It's just another way to ** money from the American purchaser. Once again, the average consumer is being subjected to cheap manufacturing, out of pocket expenses to repair a "new" item, and the inconvenience of making the repairs. Those without the "know how" to make their own repairs are forced to call Sears or another repair service and pay dearly.
I am very angry with the retailers and manufacturing brokers in our country. We can no longer call them manufacturers because just about everything we purchase, was manufactured in a foreign country! I yearn for the appliances I had to leave in Baltimore. They were ten years old or older, but were manufactured so much better! I had no issues with my washer, dryer, dishwasher, refrigerator, ovens, freezers, or microwave. Most were GE, Kenmore or Whirlpool. Once upon a time, the manufacturing industries in this country took pride in what they made, how it was made, and how long it would stand the test of time. Today, the average consumer is subjected to planned obsolescence and the lifespans of our purchased products are becoming shorter and shorter.
Kemore Range Model 970503720 - My wife and I have had three brand new stoves stop working on us. The most recent stove was a Kenmore Model 970C503720 which is a convection fan. This was an upgrade from Sears from the basic model which did not have the convection. Soon after purchase on stove number one, the clock stopped which controls the oven temperature. This would not allow the oven to heat up higher that 287 degrees. We had the control board replaced but it died as well. We received a replacement stove, same problem occurred; then, we upgraded to our current stove and the same problem occurred.
Sears indicated that this will be the last time they will help us because nobody else has this problem and they have suggested that if it happened again we must have a wiring problem. Nothing electronically with regard to the stove has changed in our house and before we bought these three new stoves, our previous stove ran just fine for 20 years. It is my belief that the control boards are defective. So now we are going to approach Sears for a fourth time; concerned that we will not get satisfaction. We are willing to upgrade to something that does not have this kind of control board but did chose to stay with this design to avoid having to buy new pots and pans to accommodate the newer cooking surfaces.
When my families' oven of twenty years finally kicked the bucket we shopped around for the best, not the cheapest, the best for our home. We happened upon Sears and found the Kenmore 5 burner range. We asked for it in white to match our kitchen and happily they had it in stock. The problems began the better half of six months. After baking for all that time we noticed that when any casserole is placed in the oven on the rack, it bends very close to baking. We called and were hurried off the phone by the horrible company saying new racks would arrive at our house in five business days.
Three weeks later we called back after visiting the Store in Hermitage. We were greeted by an ignorant saleswoman (I am college educated and I am using the correct form of this word) who stared at us and said "Why oh yes, these racks are flimsy. Maybe you could have a welder have ones made or go to a used store and but replacements." Flabbergasted we called the Kenmore hotline to be reconnected over and over to someone who informed us the racks were never ordered and a repairman would have to come and inspect the oven would be over to see if the oven was in fact broke. The man never showed and said there was no way our oven was broken. Not only is it unacceptable for Sears employees to be so inconsiderate to family who purchased a full price $900 product, but also it is horrid that Kenmore had lied and cheated us along the way. NO ONE SHOULD WASTE THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY HERE!
We have the Kenmore range model 790. It is five years old and has died. We tried having it serviced by Sears and they told us that they no longer service Vail, Co. We put our money and faith in their product and are disappointed in the response. This stove is not worth buying nor will we further shop at Sears or purchase any of their products. They do not stand behind them!
Kenmore oven - glass door exploded outward spreading hundreds of glass pieces all over the kitchen. Oven was on at 350 degrees. The indoor glass appears to be intact, but exterior glass is completely shattered. Calls to Sears for immediate repair attention for a safety issue were generally dismissed by their "off shore" answering/scheduling service.
Purchased range oven from Sears a Kenmore. Do not buy - it basically exploded, made a big popping noise and they refused to warranty it. The women on the phone was rude and refused to let me speak to a supervisor. No wonder they are closing Sears stores. Their products have really gone downhill. I am so disappointed. I have always purchased my appliances at Sears. Will never do that again.
Bought the Kenmore double oven (top a microwave, bottom an oven). Oven racks kept falling. Sears replaced racks, oven interior, and wound up replacing oven. This time we got bottom and top ovens. Racks in both oven still fall. Very dangerous.
