I first unplugged the power cord and raised the range top and shut off gas supply to oven. then i removed the broiler drawer. Then using the adjustable wrench i loosened and removed the gas supply line from safety valve. Then using the philips head screw driver i removed the 2 screws holding the heat sheild surounding the valve. Then i unplugged the 2 wires on the valve body. then i removed the 3 screws from valve bracket and removed the valve. Install in reverse order and adjust gas orfice for proper burner flame using adjustable wrench. takes about 30 mins. I have done this repair once befor so i kinda knew what i was doing from the get go!!!! I had the new part i had ordered from this site in just 3 days!!!
