Removed side retainer pieces, screws above and below accessed by opening oven door and straight down on oven top. Then two back screws to free controller. Let console fall forward. Remove four screws holding oven circuit board, replace with new board, then carefully move one wire at a time from old board to new board. Used magnifying glass to verify labeling on tiny print on new board. Needed pliers to remove tight pin fittings. Need to focus and not forget labeling switching wires.

Although I thought I was done, it turned out later that the oven wasn't coming on. After taking it apart again, it seemed strange no wire was hooked to the oven prong on the circuit board. I tried switching a few and thank god nothing bad happened. I then studied the directions. There were mentions of wires I didn't have hooking to various places including the oven relay. So I wasn't sure what to do. The broiler has worked so I unhooked the broiler wire and fastened it to bake prong. The oven now worked. I clipped the unnecessary female prong wire from the old ground connected and spliced it into the broiler wire and then hooked it to the oven prong. The oven and broiler prongs are effectively hooked in parallel now. I tested it and the thermostat and shutoff worked properly with both the oven and broiler working.

All done after reassembly.
