I had already switched off the breaker for the range, so I unplugged the unit and moved it out from the wall. I removed the screws on the rear cover and exposed the clock/timer. I then removed the four screws holding the clock/timer,used my pocket knife to gently pry the wires off of the old unit one at a time, as these were very tight. Holding the new clock/timer in my other hand I installed the wires one at a time to match the original clock timer wiring.I installed the clock/timer, the range back cover, slid the range back into place, plugged it in and turned on the breaker. My wife is happy, I am too.
A repair shop wanted $100.00 just to go to our home and look at our range. We spent $104.00 plus $20.00 for the new overlay, fifteen minutes of my time, a real bargin!
Thank you PartSelect, I'll be ordering from you again!
