    Default Stove insulation blanket

    Kenmore stove

    Model - 790.95032505
    Serial - VF95055571



    Does it matter if the blanket is pushed up against the bottom of the surface burners on an electric stove?

    I had posted about the stove with the clicking relay. I noticed this stove had heat marks under the LF and LR surface burner knobs as if heat was escaping. I thought this might be causing the oven to have a hard time maintaining heat and causing the relay to kick on and off. I raised the top and therew as an area near the rear burners that was not covered by the blanket completely. There was also an area in the middle where someone had placed some blanket material.

    I covered theses areas with one big piece from another stove which made some of the blanket double thick. This part is up against the bottom of the surface burners.

    This is smooth top with radian surface burners.

    So far not sure how much difference it makes. It is up to temp and there is still quite a bit of difference in temp from one side to the other under the control panel.

    There is also a a quite audible thumb as metal or something heats up. Sounds like maybe the oven or something is getting hot and flexing.

    Okay, guess I need to check the vent tube.

    I guess the design and placement of the vent tube explains the temp difference from one side tot he other.

    I added some insulation to the front and back trying keep the temp down on the front and rear of the top.

    Yes it would....esp with the ceran top....one side will have that pipe vent.

    As long as it is high temp insulation, shouldn't bother anything.

    The insulation came from another stove, so I assume it to be high temp. The front of the stove was getting very hot also when the oven was used, so removed the top part of the insulation and replaced it with the top part from another stove. BY doing thiss, there is no area uncovered as it was before where the insulation did not go quite all the way across the top of the oven leaving a strip near the front uncovered.

    I am a little concerned about the sides of the insulation staying in place since I cut the top part out. I placed the insulation I put in a little over the side pieces on each side and pulled the wire ties snug.

    Btw, since I replaced the top part of the insulation, the only places that might be double thick is at the edges where I overlapped it a little.

    The door vent will add some heat at the front also.

    That should keep it in place.

    Likely is...the whiteish coloured stuff is.
