The outer glass door broke on my Kenmore oven--Model 7909375102. In order to fix, are the appropriate parts to order, the
1) Trim Kit-door
2) The Door Glass
Is there some sort of "how to" online manual I can go to for help with the installation once the parts arrive, or do I just have to figure it out for myself? Also, is it safe to use my oven in the meantime while I'm waiting for the parts?? The oven door glass (on the inside) is fine.
Is this the glass that broke?
Ok, here is the diagram. is the trim part # ***** damaged?
The trim in part 3 is all in one piece, not bent or anything. The only question I have about it is this, the trim piece that goes up the left side seems to be loose at the top. Where it somehow attaches near the oven door handle.
That slides up inside part number 52. Was it loose before this broke?
Ok, when you install the new glass this should tighten back up. The glass helps hold it, the cheapest place to order the glass I can find is @ http://www.sea rspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Kenmore-Parts/Range-Parts/5303935200/0022/628/Model-79093751102/0582/0124111?keySuffixId=NA&productTypeId=0124111&searchModelNumber=79093751102&subCompDesc=Door&brandDesc=KENMORE&modelDesc=ELECTRIC-RANGE&blt=11
OK, so you're saying that I only need the door glass, but not the trim kit? Also, what about some sort of online instruction manual on how to install the glass. Do you know of any helpful websites or could you send me something?? And, (last but not least!!), can I use the oven in the meantime?
If the door shuts tightly, you can use it but be careful the other glass can get hot, keep the kids away from it. As far as replacing it, you need to remove the door and lay it down to get it apart. If you open the door about 1/3 of the way there should be holes in the hinge you put small nails through then close the door against them and lift it up and out of the oven. There really isn't any how to instructions on line, but sometimes if you search YouTube, they have different videos, they may help. I believe however this one is an easy one. Remove the bottom screws holding the trim and the glass slides up into the top then replace the trim, just remember to make sure there is no glass left in any of the trim pieces.
