I took out ruined racks. Cleaned the oven, getting rid of all the melted plastic. Once oven was sparkling clean, I slid in the new racks I bought from here. (The easiest part).

This was a piece of cake! We put off doing this for ourselves because we thought it would be difficult. We sold the house and "had" to do it. Turns out we should have done it for ourselves a long time ago.

I ordered new racks to see if they weere out of alignment. The new racks fell from its tracks after the broiler was heated. It seems the oven cabinet is expanding with the heat and the rack width does not compensate for that. The new racks did not solve the problem so I do not know what can be done next. Any shelf support would have to be heat resistent. Replacing the oven cabinet is not a good option and no gauantee it wouldn't continue with this stove.

My son turned on the oven, not realizing the salad spinner was inside.

Very simple process of just ensuring you have the correct size racks and remove the old racks and replace them with the new ones.
Having ordered a lot of things on the internet, I am very pleased with using Part select and would "highly" recommend them to all!!

I COMPARED THE 2 SWITCHES THEY WERE THE SAME.SO I CONNECTED THE WIRES . I PUT THE 2 SCREWS ON. THE STEM WAS HIGHER THAN THE OTHER SWITCHERS.SO I HAD TO CUT THE STEM SHORTER. IT HAD GROVES SO IT WAS EASY TO USE A HACKSAW TO CUT A LITTLE THEN USE A LOCK PLIERS TO HOLD THE STEM AND ANOTHER TO BREAK IT OFF THEN IT FIT PERFECT I PUT THE KNOB ON PRESTO NEW SWITCH.JUST LIKE NEW.
