The range model has several references. P7, JHP56V, etc. It seems like the silicone gasket (P/N WB2X2957) is common to many models. The PartSelect site had the best price. This is on the upper oven. Remove all shelves and remove the inner panels on the two sides and the bottom. There are some Phillips screws and some Torx screws behind the inner panels. When these are removed, the silicone gasket can be removed easily by using a little force to make room between the inner wall and the body of the oven. Clean around before installing the new gasket. Mark the half-way point on the gasket and the center of the bottom edge of the oven. Start inserting the gasket from the bottom edge lining up the marks. Go around the two sides and finish at the top. Put all the screws back and finish by re-installing the panels and shelves.
