Review:
"Do not buy this range"
We bought this Kenmore range in September, 2017, Everything seemed fine until the oven was on for a period of time. The panel behind the knobs and the knobs themselves are extremely hot! You need to use a pot holder to touch the knobs. Have had Sears out 4 times and they refuse to fix it because it works.. I was told that as if I bought a lemon car it's the same with this range you're stuck with it. Never buy from Sears because they do not have any kind of customer service and they simply do not care.

"Very disappointed with Kenmore range 79074233314"
Sears - What happened to your quality? For Christmas, my husband bought me a range and frig. After using the range for 7 weeks the igniter burned out and there is a problem with the control panel. 6 phone calls later and 2 repair visits, I am waiting to hear from the replacement agent. Customer reviews online RE: your ranges are horrific. Please fix or pull this range before someone gets seriously hurt. I am planning to replace this appliance. Very inconvenient with lots of time spent already.

Review:
"Worst stove I ever had"
I tried to pick a powerful stove, in which the stove was powerful enough, but unfortunately, the dual burner was designed right next to the panel of knobs, in which after turning on the fire for about ten minutes, the knobs would be burning hot, unable to turn the knobs off without using a wet towel, and I believe the knobs will cause fire eventually if I am don't use it cautiously. Would never recommend such a bad manufacture design stove, and Kenmore refuse to do anything for me for this brand new item.

"Kenmore cook top (gas) with 5 Burners"
I do not recommend this gas stove. Does not provide enough heat to cook food or fry something, oil get cold very quickly so food does not get cooked properly does not get crispy, does not taste good. Big burner flame also has flaw, does not give even heat so completely useless. All other smaller burner does not provide enough heat either. I will not recommend to anybody.

Review:
"Throw-away Stove"
I submitted a review of the Kenmore slide-in stove to the Sears online review. But they "moderated" it -- meaning they declined to run it. So the reason you see only positive reviews is that everyone else's reviews are "moderated" like mine. So here's the review: "Throw-away Stove: Within five years of buying this stove, we have to replace it. One element doesn't work at all, and the oven can't keep temperature. We've had service people in to try to fix it but they say they can't, because all the parts are electronic. We'd have to replace the entire electronics control panel, and even then, there's no guarantee it would solve the problems. Electronic gadgets may look cool, but they're not fixable. One big part of the problem is that the electronic controls are at the front, where the heat comes out of the oven, which melts them. Another problem is that the electronics are cheap. This has been a throw-away stove for us. We are now looking to replace it."

Review:
"Unable to remove smoke stains from stove door and back panel"
Since the incident with the pie filling bubbling over in the oven, I decided to put a foil cookie sheet on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any spills that might happen. To be clear: didn't put the baking pan directly on the foil cookie sheet, I put the foil sheet on the very bottom rack of the oven, (definitely didn't put it on the floor of the oven) and I put whatever I'm baking on the middle rack. It took forever to bake pies, cakes, cookies, etc. The top gets browner and browner, but the bottom is barely cooking. I've tried using a foil cookie sheet on the bottom rack while cooking lasagna and other things that could spill over, and again, the flimsy little cookie sheet slows down the baking and it also bakes unevenly. as with other reviews I read in here, I also have to turn things around in the oven half way through in order for things to cook evenly. I'm cutting up my Sears card and cancelling my account with them. If they can't test their products more carefully (surely they realize that smoke emitting from the oven through the vents is almost inevitable in most households at one time or another), and it never occurred to them that it would stain the finish on the stove near the vents when this happens, or even suggest or sell a product that will remove the stains, then I certainly am not going to buy any more Sears products any more!

"Unable to remove smoke stains from stove door and back panel"
I had fruit pies in the oven. The pie fillings bubbled over and burned on the bottom of the oven. A lot of smoke poured out of the vents. The oven vents are just above the oven door handle and top left hand side of the stove above the back burner. Smoke from the burning pie filling poured out of the vents and now they're stained with yellowish/brownish stains that won't come off. Shortly after the pies were out of the oven and the smoke quit coming out of the vents, I tried to clean the smoke stains from around the vents, but to no avail... It was baked on there for good! Also, a knob beside the vent is also stained. I've tried everything to get that stain off of the two vent areas, and nothing works. I've tried to clean the knob, but it's made of some sort of plastic and the stain won't come off of there either, and because its made of plastic, I don't want to try anything harsh that will make it look worse. I will never buy another Kenmore product... ever!

"Unhappy housewife"
My Kenmore is 2.5 years old and has a problem with the clock. Sears serviceman order the parts needed Dec 24 today we are waiting and waiting for the parts, no one knows when they'll be available, therefore no appointment can't be made for service/installation. Very unhappy with Kenmore parts and Sears, I do not recommend sears at all.

"F1 Error code"
Just had the appliance repairman here today to check out the stove. It was showing an f1 error code. I almost fell of my chair when he called later in the afternoon with a replacement timer part cost of $674. That is more than I paid for the bloody oven when it was new. Not buying another Kenmore that's for sure.

Review:
"Kenmore Stove Review"
I really like my Kenmore Range. I've had it for about 6 months. I got it because my old stove (and it was really old!) was having trouble lighting. It's a perfect no frills stove -- nothing too fancy, but it gets the job done. My one complaint would be that I'd like it to be a little easier to fine-tune the strength of the flame. I haven't had to repair it yet (but I've only had it for less than a year). I'd recommend this stove for someone who's looking for a new stove.
