Need to find a model number
« on: May 21, 2010, 05:52:50 PM »
Hi, I need to figure out a model number for my slide-in electric range that I purchased in 2001.  It has a Ceran top, with the dials in the front.  It's white, not stainless steel.  The model numbers rubbed off, and I only can see the first two (KE).  I need to know the model number so the technician can order a new power board.  Do you know of any manuals I can look at online to figure out which one it is?

Can't he use the numbers on the board? Keep this in mind, our friend BRUCE in Texas rebuilds them boards for way less than a replacement and warrantys em way longer.

A wire on the power board shorted out because some water leaked down into it.  This after having had the board replaced three months ago.

I didn't realize there were numbers on the board itself.  Thanks for that info.  I'm not sure why the technician just didn't order another one.

I'm still curious as to figuring out the model number.  Are there any online manuals available from 2001 I can look at to figure this out?

Even if you had the correct model number, you would need the serial number so that they can issue you the production numbered part for that particular manufacturing run. They don't always use the same control. Many factors determine the control production part number. To be exact you ALWAYS use the numbers on the board to avoid ordering the wrong part: Appliance parts sales 101

Although he will still need the model  for part purposes, the manual is shown below to help with any service issues. The model numbers are listed on the front page of the manual and begin with KE as you suggested. There is a strong chance the clock will have a part number stamped on back for reference.
