Can I remove the hidden bake cover an bake without it in my Kenmore wall oven model 790.48833901.

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

I have an new Kenmore wall oven with a hidden bake cover model in title, serial number NF 20916847. I find that it takes a lot longer to preheat, and to cook and I think it is is because of the cover blocking the heating elements on the bottom. We removed the cover and tested the preheat feature for 350 degrees.
We found that it takes 10 min. to preheat without the cover and 25 minutes to preheat with the cover. I would like to bake in my oven without the hidden bake cover.
It took me 2 1/2 hrs. to bake two medium size sweet potatoes and they still were not completely done.
Does removing the cover and baking without it cause a voided warranty? What reasons would I have to leave the cover on?

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Operating the oven without the hidden bake element cover in place is not recommended.

Again, we do not recommend operating the oven with the cover off or it could void the warranty. It is designed to have the hidden bake cover in place over the bake element and it should remain that way. You could experience a thermal event without it in place.

IMPORTANT: Always replace the "hidden bake" cover before the next use if you take it off for cleaning.

Good afternoon.... I would not think that it would void the warranty seeing that you're not changing anything mechanically. If you notice that kind of a difference I would say leave it off! An expert will be responding as soon as they get your question. You could wait for them which should take less then two business days. Until then, enjoy your new range.
