I removed the control panel to replace the electronic clock and and was very simple. Remove the screws beneath the assembly, then lift if off the flange at the top. If you have a cabinet door above, you may need to remove the door to provide enough space to lift up and remove the assembly from the flange. The other posts really helped in understanding how to remove the old clock assembly - only word of caution concerns the removal of the black electronic contact wire strip - you need to lift up on two small tabs on each side and it slips out easily.

The over door hinge assebly is described well in prior posts and is very simple. If you are replacing your hinges, just do all of them as I found they were all suffering from fatigue. Remember to place a small nail in the hole in the hinge to prevent the old hinge from snapping when you remove it. When you inspect you new hinge, you'll see they've placed a temporary piece in the hinge assembly so you can slide it into the holder on a slight angle. Then replace the screw and backet that holds the hinge in place. When complete, open the oven fully and remove the small metal piece so the hinge can close completely.

One post mentioned the need to replace the hinge post on the side of the oven that holds the hinge in place on the oven. I opted not to do this and the new hinges work perfectly without getting involved in removing this part.

I found this entire experience easy and efficient - for just over $200, we have a control display that we can see and two oven doors that open and close easily!

Display Was Dim

I opened the top oven. Then unscrewed the screws below the display unit. Took off the attaching wires. Unscrewed the broken display. Screwed the new display back on. Re-attached the wires. Screwed the support screws back on. It took about 10 minutes.

The only "difficulty" was in removing the wires. One of them is attached in a pressure attachment which isn't immediately obvious (that's the largest attachment in the center). Just be careful when taking that one out.

First we cut the power from the double ovens. Then we removed the two screws holding the panel in place. We just had to unplug three different cords from the electronic panel, then switch it with the new one. We reconnected all the wires, screwed the panel back in, turned the power back on and the electronic panel was glowing brightly. What an easy repair job that saved us hundreds of dollars!

After turning off the breaker, my husband removed the Oven Control Panel Cover. the Display assembly was connected with two multiple wire plugs. Once those were unplugged he plugged them into the new display assembly, reinstalled it, reinstalled the control panel. Turned hte breaker back on and HOORAY, after nearly a year with no oven display it still seem odd to beable to read the clock and oven temp!

Clock & Oven display too dim to read

(1) Turn off power;
(2) remove 4 phillips screws on the bottom of the control panel (top of the oven door) to allow the control panel to rotate up and out;
(3) remove 2 electrical connectors by releasing locks then pull/wiggle free. (note the cable locks to help orient reassembly) You can now carry the control panel to the kitchen table to continue.
(4) This was a little tricky for my big hands: remove the switch / controls ribbon cable by depressing small tabs inward then releasing a small wedge which squeezes the ribbon into the connector. Gently unhook and separate the ribbon cable from the display module.
(5) remove 4 hex-head screws which mount the clock panel to the control panel assembly.
(6) reverse procedure to reassemble & test.

removed the trim bezel housing the controls and clock assy, by removing 3ea phillips head screws on top and 4ea screws on the bottom of the trim bezel. disconnected the wiring harnesses. removed the 4 screws securing the LCD assy to the bezel. Repeated the process in reverse for installing replacement unit. Very simple. One note: Always shut off power to the appliance from the breaker panel. it will ensure proper reset of the panel when the power is turned back on. this is a procedure a 10 year old could handle. very simple and no electrical experience necessary. Saved myself at least $300 for a few minutes of my time....

Open oven 220V circuit breaker. Take top and bottom Phillips screws holding panel. Turn panel and use an small flat blade screwdriver to pry the two small electrical connectors out freeing the panel from the oven. Place panel on a table. With thumb and index finger push lightly towards the inside the two vertical branches of sank long U type plastic holding flat ribbon and try to gently lift the U. The U doesn't come out all the way, it only needs to come out enough to free the ribbon. I broke the legs of the old one trying to bring it all the way up, fortunately the replacement has a new U. The assembly PS2077427 is removed and replaced after freeing the ribbon. When placing ribbon back, the very small hooks on the plastic U need to engage the two little holes in the ribbon to bring the ribbon down and grab it so it makes contact. The rest is easy.

Had to remove oven from mounting cabinet to get to the back since the wire lenght to the conector was to short to come through the mounting hole.
Other than that the repair was straight forward. 4 screws to dismount the Oven from cabinet, 2 screws to remove Sensor and 3 srews to open the back of the oven once out in the open. New cable adapter that came with the new sensor was needed in my case.

I removed two screws holding the element in place. Carefully pulled the element from its mounting throught insulation to expose the two wires connected by electric wire clips. I removed the clips and searched the part online using google. Part Select was provided as the top source. I ordered the part and it was delivered in two days. Taking care to thread the connection through the insulation, I was pleased to have installed it in about 5 minutes. All tools were still out and ready for use. Thank you for your service

The clock was so dim it couldn't be seen anymore.

  • Customer: Amy from Newtown CT

First, I turned the power off to the oven. With a screwdriver, I removed the 3 screws above and the 4 screws below the control panel. Next, gently pulled out the control panel. Three cables attached the electronic clock assembly to the bundle of cables controlling the oven. By pulling on the plastic tabs, I was able to loosen two of the cables. The other "cable" resembles a ribbon. Squeeze the black tabs on each side of the base of the ribbon connector and pull slightly. The ribbon itself then needs to be bent and gently removed from the connector (you can see two slits in the ribbon that hold it in place). Using my wrench set, I removed the four screws that held the electronic clock assembly to the control panel. Then I attached the new clock assembly, replaced the cables and ribbon cable, snapped in the control panel and secured it into place with the seven screws. It was very easy to do this.

Very easy to repair, but you have to be able to pull your stove out. Two screws in the oven and then remove part of back cover of oven and one plug from there. Simple to do, but did not fix our problem. We are waiting repair now from service company as it looks like it needs a control panel. Worth trying yourself to fix the problem. Inexpensive part and easy to install. Also be sure to turn power off your oven to reset the control panel as this may fix the problem - try this first and also after installing new part - like rebooting a computer...

For display replacement: remove top three phillip head screws and four underneath bezel screws. Detach 3 wire harness sockets. With control panel assembly detached from oven face remove two screws holding display control using socket driver and replace with new. Reverse steps for installation.
Hinge replacement: Follow guidelines written by previous comments. Before re-installing door in to oven cavity slots be sure to remove temporary hinge "open" pin (small round-head pin approx. 3/8" long which holds the spring loaded hinge in a position to insert it through the oven door housing assy. slots).

Oven Temperature was 50 degrees low

  • Customer: Eugene from Clinton IA
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Took screws out of the back on the side the sensor was on, unplugged it & took out the two screws on the inside of the oven to release the sensor. Put new sensor in place with the two screws & used one of the adapters to plug in the new sensor. Put screws back in the back panel & turned on the oven which unfortunately is still 50 degrees low. Need a new clock with computer which is out of stock & unavailable. I was an electrician for 25 years so didn't experience any problems. It was a cheap thing to try.
