The hardest part was taking out original light bulb because screws on shield where hard to unscrew after all this years . The old bulb vent out leaving neck in socket. It took narrow electrical pliers to get neck out .The generic appliance bulb did not fit and had aluminum neck ,not recommended for brass sockets in ovens.Putting new light bulb in was not the problem.

Very Easy Repair

The door came off easily after I removed the two hinge covers that are attached to the oven. Taking the door off can be done with one person but ideally two.

The new parts fit in perfectly and the hinge pin used for shipping comes out easiest with a pair or wire cutters (you do not cut it just grab it and pull).

After that, re-assemble the door and drop in place. It was a snap.

FYI...the shipping was ultra fast and the price was great.

No issues whatsover with the entire process.

Got a bent metal coathook to temporarily release the oven door, removed the screws from the old probe, inserted the new one, and hooked it up, using the one of the plug adapters provided. Problem solved! The oven door latch was now disengaged, the oven would now accept temperature inputs, and the rear cooling fan (which wouldn't shut off) now turned off. That's a lot of things working better for less than $50!

broken oven door handle

I unscrewed the door's top edge, removed the bottom drawer to loosen the oven door's bottom edge to where its screws were hanging in by a thread. The outside glass was then removable and exposed the screws holding the door handle mounting pieces. I unscrewed the four screws that held the mounts to the door, then the two that held the handle to the mounts, replaced the broken handle with my promptly delivered new one and reassembled the door in reverse order of above. Oh yeah, reading the other accounts of how to do this was the most important step in all this.

This was a really easy fix... All I needed to do was remove the door and racks from the oven, remove 3 screws from the fan cover and another 4 screws from the fan itself, disconnect the two wires (keep track which side each was on) remove fan from oven. I then took the new fan, connected the wires installed the screws and door and Done! Now for the moment of truth the test... Works Great!! Easily cut my repair bill in half by doing it my self... no repairman costs, not travel charge, and no markup on the part:)

I had repair men replace the door hinges 2times and decided the 3rd time to do it myself and save some $. ordering was a chinch, received the parts in 2 days and followed instructions posted on this site. They were excellent. Just a few things I would stress: Lift UP the door to remove, not open the door fully and pull out and also make sure to take the small pins out of the new hinges before closing. They are so small you could over look them. The person who put detailed instructions on this site is to be commended for clarity and detail on "How To" I really appreciated it.
