In order to replace the bottom trim (and side trims if needed) it is necessary to separate the oven door front panel and its outer glass from the inside door panel. It is best to remove the entire oven door and lay it down on a table in order to do this. (Refer to owner's manual for instructions on removing the door from the oven, but it basically lifts out easily when is is in the broil-open position). Remove the front panel of the oven door by unscrewing the two machine screws (these may be torx head screws on your appliance) on the top inside corners of the door that hold the door handle. (screw spacers on the inside likely will fall out when you remove the machine screws - don't be alarmed) Then remove the three screws at the bottom of door trim. The front panel can then be lifted away from the back panel. This will allow access to the screws that hold the bottom trim to the side trim. Remove these and the bottom trim will slide off. Replace trim pieces and reassemble.

First–removed the door. Very simple—lower the small latch on each hinge from the stove side DOWN to the door side to unlock. Second–crawled into the oven to reach the two screws holding on the bake element. Pulled out the element (wires are VERY short) to see if I had a screw-on or the push-on type. Third–went to PartSelect to order the correct element. Waited a few days for shipping to arrive. Fourth–just reversed the steps to install the new bake element. Fifth–installed the door and secured the locking latch back up to the oven side. Sixth–made me some HOT WINGS!

The replacement bottom drawer guides were not the same part as described in diagram. The front drawer guides which were also ordered were fine. I could not use the bottom drawer guides, however due to the modest cost of the part and shipping costs, I did not return.

The oven temperature could not be controlled

Disconnect the range from the mains. Open the door. Remove the single screw holding the temperature sensor - this is located on the back wall on center and is screwed to the broiler mounting plate. Remove the four screws holding the boiler element and allow it to hang down on the wire; this exposes a space to feed the wire through later. Now move to the back of the range and remove the six screws that hold the central cover plate. Now push the insulation to up out of the way and you can disconnect the temperature sensor, pull it out through front, insert the new one and connect it. Reassemble in the reverse order. Mine worked perfectly!

one leg of the terminal block was loose and overheated under load.the terminal block melted and could have caused a fire.

I took a picture of the setup and damage . I then disconnected the burnt wires and replaced the wires . Then I installed the new terminal block and connected the wires to the proper positions. The reason for the failure was that the delivery people didn't tighten the cord when they installed the stove . I would check the connections periodically as to avoid another situation like this .
