Oven liner replacement
« on: November 21, 2010, 05:03:57 PM »
I cannot figure out who is making the oven, and I would love to see a service manual before tearing into replace the liner in the upper oven.  Can anybody assist, or has anyone changed a liner recently in the newer model Kenmore Elites?

Model 790.4813

Yep, it is a Fridgidaire, but I've scoured for a service manual to no avail.  The Fridgidaire site does not provide service man.

Have you checked the Fearless Leader's Appliance Digest link to your left? I imagine he has a manual that could give ya an idea.

Yep, checked those archives already.  The only Fridgidaire oven manual in there doesn't cover liner replacement, and is for a different model anyway.

My plan is to pull unit out of cabinet, then just start pulling the unit apart in as logical a way as possible, but it sure would save some time if I had an idea of what had to come out, and what did not!

Why would you be wanting to change the liner?

Because when Mom and Dad weren't home, my daughter (not understanding that there is a heating element under there) put foil in the bottom of the oven to catch cheese from a pizza she was making, which of course welded an entire sheet of foil to the liner.   :(

Thought about the draino mixture cleaning method, but the shame of it is this oven is brand new (I just installed it 3 weeks ago).  And, ultimately, we won't be happy unless it is restored to new condition again.

Wow you are in for one big nasty pain in the butt job! I do this stuff for a living and I avoid replacing oven liners if at all possible. Not something I'd recommend for a novice. But if you must.........with the unit out of the wall and sitting on the floor, Start by taking the doors off if you haven't already. Then take off the back panels. Disconnect the oven sensor, broil & convection element wiring then remove them from inside the oven. Remove the convection fan blade (the nut is a reverse thread!) The hidden bake element most likely won't have to be removed. Look for any screws on the back of the oven holding the liner in and remove them. Remove the oven vent tube from inside the oven. This should turn about a quarter turn counter clockwise then pull out. Remove the light housing(s). They should have a disconnect plug when you pull the housing out but the plug may be all the way at the back of the oven & you will have to pull the wire through. Now you've done all of the "easy" stuff. Depending on how this one is made, you may or may not have to remove the front frame. Look at the front of the oven opening to see if the liner overlaps the frame or sits behind it. If behind it, start disconnecting every screw you can find on the sides and front holding the frame in. Last, sometimes there are one or a few screws inside the oven cavity near the front holding it in, if so remove them. Now once that is done or if you did not have to do that step, CAREFULLY start wiggling out the liner. The part thats difficult here is getting the liner out without disturbing the insulation. It may help to lay the oven on its back at this point so when you get the liner out the top of the insulation does not fall down. If you are still doing ok at this point, congratulations! Now all you have to do is reverse those steps! Depending on where the oven light is mounted you may have to fish the wires back through so at this point it might help to put a string or another wire through the hole to pull the wires through.
Now if any of these instructions sounds scary to you, don't ruin your $2000+ oven, call a professional. It might cost you a few hundred dollars but might save you a lot of trouble and aggravation!

whjeffs,

Thanks!  Finally someone sent a great reply to my post, and it came just in time.  I should have mentioned that although I have zero experience with appliances, I'm a VERY mechanical guy, quite capable with tools, so I wasn't at all scared off by your instructions. 

Thanks for taking the time to write all that, the one key tip that saved me a lot of headache I'm sure, was to lay the oven on it's back when I pulled out the liner.  I would not have thought to do that, and that was an awesome tip!  Everything else was pretty easy, and I actually completed the job in 2 hours last night.

I plan on putting together a tutorial with pics if anyone is interested.
