The only thing Elite up in my house is me, punks.
The Kenmore Elite range done took a fat dumper on the kitchen floor and just didn’t feel like holding temperature anymore. The control board doesn’t really seem to be the issue for a couple reasons so I went ahead and replaced the temperature probes.
What’s that? You don’t wanna crack open your range? Fret not, ladies and gents, for the Modern Man will guide you through.
Clearly, my write up is for an electric range because that’s what my rural home has up in it’s guts but pay attention now as it really is quite easy.
Step 1: Don’t be a bitch.
Step 2: Look up an exploded parts diagram for your make and model of appliance. It’s a great way to see what parts are in the mix and how they fit into the grand scheme of things.
Step 3: Get you an account-abili-buddy.
Step 4: Pull that range out of it’s cubby and into the open. Let her breathe that fresh air and don’t forget to unplug her when she least expects it.
Step 6: Find a good home for the screws.
Step 7: Assess the situation.
Step 8: Allow the Kitty Inspector General to assess your progress so you don’t make any mistakes.
Step 9: Reverse the probe removal scenario. Fish the probe’s electrical connection through the hole in the back of the range and install the two screws to hold her in place. Then reconnect the probe into the main wiring harness.
Step 10: Reinstall the cheap ass stamped cover on the rear of the range.
Step 11: Inspection and Reinsertion
Step 12: Wait, you want to test out your work already? Hold up, son. Kitty Inspector General Ruby noticed the glass in the doors wasn’t up to snuff. Better get on that.
Step 13: Test and calibrate your range as necessary and laid out in your manual.
Step 14: Blaze that blunt. Or crack that beer. Unless you done messed up and replaced the wrong parts then your job is done. Kick it with your kitty and make something delicious.
