I tried to shut the oven off and turn back on, but the display & oven would still not work. I ordered this part in hopes this would takecare of the problem. And it did. Others that installed this mention it's easy and only 4 screws and 4 more then thats it. Far from the truth on my model. Jdp39. Before you start working on the oven, you need to shut the power off, either unplug the unit or shut the circuit breaker off for it. You can find your model printed when you lift the top of the stove on the left side all the way in the back. My model had 6 screws to remove the inner cover. 2 on each side and 2 that hold the kick stand. Once all removed and placed aside, then remove the inner left top and bottom screws. There's 4. My model also has some black light metal shielding, more screws to remove 4 more. By now the inner display is visible. Looks complicated but really is not. My suggestion would be to study your oven, don't rush the process, clean as you remove parts never really exposed. Anyways follow the instructions exactly. The harness that comes with the kit will replace the one in your oven. Easy. The wire nuts provided in the kit will complete the install after you cut and strip the wires from your oven & appy and scew the wire nuts to join them - mine were the 2 white ones. The new harness will have color coded connectors. Simply do one by one. Make sure the connection to the pin is all the way in, yet be gental while pressing them in not to bend them. Needle nose pliers worked great for me. Once the harness is refitted with the new, remove the 4 screws that are holding your old display. I marked all the wires before I unplugged them from the old display. L1, N, etc.. The outter skin/ front display plate will need to be removed from the old display, cleaned and prepped for the new one. The new display is a little smaller but no cutting is required on the outer face piece, just match it up as best ad you can right over the buttons and prep it for install. Line it up and screw it in! Now the connections, the new unit is from the future and has better connections and is more efficient, this is explained with the provided instructions. Once all the connections are complete. Check everything make sure you put things back the way you found them. Screw in all the screws and test it. Apply power/ fusebox and watch a familiar site. The clock flashing 12:00 . My oven has been out for 2 months, felt lost and purchased a small toaster oven thing, but just wasen't the same; and new ovens drop in style are min of $800ish. This quick kit fixed it for me. I feel proud that I was able to complete this. The oven works perfect. I recently reopened it to inspect my work, signs of problems and I didn't see anything wrong. Good luck and remember you can do it. Thank you parts select! They simplified the install with setting you up with all parts needed to complete your task.
