One day my wife turned on the oven and it didn't get hot. The heating element was cold even after it was turned on for a few minutes. The same story with the broiler. The stove top and timer worked fine, you could turn the oven on, it just never even started to heat up.
I ordered the new clock assembly and it got to my house in 2 or 3 days.
Once I got the new clock assembly, it was pretty easy to put in. Just take the back panel off (6 screws), unplug 5 or 6 wires, and 2 more screws and the old clock assembly is out. I peeled off the face sticker from my old clock and stuck it on the new one.
Putting it back in was just the reverse of taking the old one out. 2 screws, plugging in the wires, and then putting the back panel on.
Its been working as good as new for over a month.
