Old appliance parts suppliers??

I've got a problem with my not-that-old stove, and hope one of you can help steer me in the right direction.

It is a Sears Kenmore electric, but I'm pretty sure was built by Jenn-Aire for Sears. I need a complete "coil module" which contains 2 heating coils--half of the cooktop--all packaged together into a box that just slides into the stovetop.

So I went to my local appliance parts store (a really good place) and they said that Jenn-Aire/Sears won't supply them with those kinds of complete modules, that their agreement says they can only sell piece-parts and this coil module is considered an "accessory." The guy told me I had to go through Sears to get the complete module. (And no, he doesn't have all the parts I'd need to just build one from scratch).

Well I called the Sears parts place, and first they told me they didn't carry it anymore because the stove is too old (I think it is about 10 years, and the previous house owners paid $1200 for it!!). Then they said they *did* have one and took my order and billed my credit card. Now they say the computer was mistaken and they don't have them anymore but they'll credit my account (thanks.).

So: anybody know of any place that sells these kinds of things...maybe buys old stocks of parts and accessories? I really don't want to buy a new stove. Help!

Can't offer you any thing but sympathy. I got the same run around from Sears over a new chain saw about 15 or so years ago. Haven't been back in a Sears store since.

In response to your cry for help on older appliance parts.
I opperate a home business (as a hobbie) called Poormans Appliances. I no doubt throw away better stuff than most people own. I have lots and lots of parts and I don't charge an arm and a leg for them. Example: Any washer or Dryer timer $25.00
Burner elements (range) $10.00 ect: Buyer must pay for postage. All I need is a pic of the appliance you are trying to repair and if I don't have it I'll look for it.
I collect all my trade in appliances from a large chain of stores.

Dealt with these folks while building our house. Needed to convert the new cooktop to LP from Natgas, and the "Great Indoors" said 8 weeks, another local appliance store gave me this number. # days later the stove was converted!

Have you tried the repair clinic? After you answer their questions, they show pictures and prices. :)

Tom, I don't know where to get the parts you need, but I think JoeK posted a link some time ago to a site that carried a lot of appliance parts. His computer died and he hasn't been on much the past week or so, but maybe an archive search would turn up the link.
