Can't get Kenmore oven to pull out of cabinet

Hi everyone,

I was hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

My Kenmore oven - 790.47899600 - stopped heating. I'm told the thermal fuse might need reset.

Problem is, I can't get it to pull out of the cabinet. There are no visible screws on the sides. Looks like some sort of clip is present, bad photo of that area below.

I'm probably missing something obvious!

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hugh

Here's a link to an exploded parts list. Hopefully, this may help you.

Thanks.

The plan shows the part that would appear to require a tool to remove the oven (311) but not where that part actually is on the exploded view. Seems weird, and more confusing. :-)

I really appreciate the info.

Hugh

Have you removed the face frame mounting screws from part 56 and 56A?

Push the oven in and against the cabinet; the oven sidebracket will clip into the mounting bracket installed into the side of cabinet.

To pull out the oven for servicing you must use the two tools supplied with the oven. Insert one tool into hole in each side of oven frame. Holes are visible when door is opened. After inserting tools pull the oven towards you (see Figure 7).

So I got it out!!!

This started because the oven stopped heating. As did the broiler.

I checked the thermal switch, seems to not require a reset, but still there isn't any heat.

Broken switch perhaps? I'll bypass it tomorrow for a minute or two to see if the oven heats.

Thanks!
