First I opened the door to the oven. Then I opened the box that the part came in. (knife) I then slid the oven rack out of the box and unwrapped the plastic, being careful not to bend or scratch the new rack. Now, this is the tricky part... I had to move the existing rack down one space to make room for the new one. Then carefully slid the new rack in, tipping it slightly and sliding it in. LOL

It was so easy, I pushed the panel towards the back and lifted the front up then lifted it right out. I am so glad that you had the part. I ordered it and when it got here, I just sliped it right in, perfect fit! Thank you so much! Cindy Brison

The first set of racks did not fit. I called the Service rep, gave him the model number and exchanged the racks for the new ones. The new ones fit perfectly and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend PartSelect.com to anyone who wants to deal with a company with excellent service, parts and representatives who know their stuff.

Oven taking 30 mins to preheat and stinks like gas.

*Oven floor panel was blocked by fan guard.*

Had to remove fan guard first as I have the convection feature. Easy. 6 screws.

Replaced the oven floor panel, stained and warped.

Checked the ignitor switch by trying to preheat oven. Switch heats up but not enough to ignite gas.

Replaced the Ignitor. Easy. Plug and Play. Replacement insulation comes with the ignitor.

Thank You Parts Select. Youre my new favorite website. I can't wait until my next appliance breaks down.

l removed the top section after the grates. Then l took the phillips screws out of the three brackets which hold the L brace which supports the controls,thermostat and the regulator. Only because l did not have a closed-end ratchet wrench for 1/4" and l could not locate my 1/4" socket for my small rachet. l disconnected all gas lines and the thermocouple, then l used the power screwdriver without the apex which makes it a great power 1/4" nutdriver and took out the two screws holding the thermostat. Then l just reversed all the steps installing the new thermostat and once l got the air out and gas was pure l lit the pilot lights and everything worked great. And l adjusted my top burner pilot lights a little higher to prevent them from gettig blown out so easy. Done deal.

Oven not evenly cooking food

If your food is not cooking evenly, a warped floor panel with attached difuser (or "v" shaped heat shield) may be the cause. Simply slide the 2 clips to unlock the panel and move the entire assembly up-and-out (back first) and slide the new one in. Be sure the clips are lined-up with the holes in the back of the oven. The new floor panel comes with the new heat shield.
