We bought this stove used last year and the only problem I've had with it is when I used the self-cleaning cycle. The top got extremely hot: too hot to touch with bare hands. And the interior finish of the oven looks as if it started to melt. Now the interior feels like sandpaper. since this occurred, I have been hesitant to use the ovencleaning cycle. Other than these problems mystove works very well.
The stovetop during a self clean will get extremely hot and after the self clean is done the oven will look and feel like sandpaper. The reason behind this is that during the self cleaning cycle the unit will get to between 900 and 1100 degrees. This will cause the top to get hot and after the self clean is done you have to wipe out the oven as the sandpaper feel is from the old grease and food and stuff that has burnt off during the self clean cycle.
I have a 2006 stove with this model number and what i would like to know is if i buy a HEATER,RADIANT part from a 2001 model would it fit in the 2006 model? The Part Number: AP4439130 please let me know because I would like to buy it if its the right one. thank you
Answer Hello Fabio! The radiant heater 5300W1R009A is the right front heating element for the cooktop portion. If the 2001 model is the same as the lre30755st 2006 model then yes, the parts would be compatible. However, if the model numbers are different, we would need the 2001 model number to help verify part numbers. Thanks!
