What People Are Saying:

Although the Kenmore 7040 series was not tested by Consumer Reports, it is the best-selling gas range at Sears and Kmart stores, which are the only retailers who stock the Kenmore brand. The customer reviews tended to be more positive, but several customers wrote scathing reviews about the range. The positive features mentioned included cooking evenly and oven temperatures were consistent. Several consumers noted the range was extremely easy to install. Negative reviews of the range noted a possible design flaw stating the oven vents near the oven controls area, making it difficult to turn off or adjust the oven without burning oneself.
