Hi, this fell of the ceiling of my Kenmore Elite Electric built in oven. Looked at the ceiling of the oven and there is a hole which is where I am guessing it came from but what is it?

Corrected model number

That is not a model number but a part number of something, possibly the piece of paper it was written on?

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

Those pieces look like parts of a smoke eliminator from the chimney of the oven.

Thanks bigbuck, I don't have access to the Cdn parts lists any longer.

You can see the original part and it's current replacement below. It looks like they do away with the eliminator part and just supply a replacement cover.

If you can clean out all the rest of the honeycomb stuff so it doesn't fall into food when cooking, you will probably be fine. The honeycomb just acts like a catalytic converter to reduce cooking fumes.

Just one other thought, make sure the metal chimney tube itself hasn't deteriorated.

If the metal cone isn't solid any longer, it could allow oven gasses to get into the oven insulation instead of out the vent. Feel around its edges for breaks in its surface.

More than likely just the ceramic honeycomb has deteriorated.
