Removing and replacing the gasket was very simple. Just pull off the old and press the new gasket into place using the attached clips. The door handle was a little more involved. I found a video on YouTube that walked me through the procedure from removing the oven door to taking the door apart then replacing the handle and putting the door back together and reattaching it to the oven. I am a grandma in my 60s and did the job all by myself! If I can do it, anyone who can follow directions can do it!

My wife watched the instruction video on the computer and replaced the oven sensor with a screwdriver in just a few minutes with no problems. Just make sure you order the right sensor. She ordered the short one by mistake and had to return it and order the Long Oven Sensor.

I removed the broken hinge and installed the new one, however the oven door didn't stay ajar but dropped open fast. So I took the old spring and installed it on the new hinge and it was improved. It just took a screwdriver.

I have worked in maintenance field most of my adult life and all aspects and to change the oven door gasket was no challenge what so ever. It took longer to find my needle nose pliers to remove the old gasket clips and then re-install the new gasket. Maybe 10 minutes total

Delayed oven ignition and strong smell of gas

  • Customer: Paul from West Haven, CT
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

First off...there are 2 possible oven igniters for this model, and you must determine which one you have. Remove racks from oven.Remove oven door. There are 2 latches(tabs) on the oven side of the hinge.Pull these forward and down. Close the door approx. half way and it will lift straight up. Carefully lay the door aside.There are 2 Phillips head screws at the rear of the pan. They are steel, and may be rusted in place. I used a Dremel with a cutoff wheel to cut a slot in the top of the screw. Then I used a straight blade screwdriver with a pair of pliers on the shaft to assist removing the screws.The oven pan lifts up at the rear to remove.Use a nut driver to remove the 2 screws holding the igniter. Mine were stripped.They use a machine thread in light gauge sheet metal. Then use an air ratchet to put them in. Take a trip to the big box store and get some short stainless sheet metal screws to replace the damaged screws.Pull the wire through the insulation, unplug the old igniter and plug the new one in. Fish the plug and wire back through the insulation. Attach the new igniter with the new screws. Replace the pan with new screws, and reverse the procedure to install the door. Even with the purchase of the Dremel, you will still save a chunk of cash, and you get a tool for the arsenal. It's rare when you don't encounter some problems, with any job. The secret is not burying yourself with more problems you create.

As the video said, twist burner to the counterclockwise 1/8 turn. Lift the burner straight up. Disconnect the two wires. Remove the burner and reconnect the wires ( they only go one way so they cannot be connected backwards.) Place the burner over the gas fitting and turn the burner clockwise until snug. I turned the power off at the circuit breaker box. The video was extremely helpful.

UNPLUG THE POWER CORD! This particular model is a (slide-in) unit, it was wedged between to fixed cupboards/cabinets. Therefore, there are really no side panels to speak of, this made the repair slightly easier. I simply slid the unit out enough to unplug the power cord and access the right side of the unit. All one needs, at this point, is a Phillips head screw driver to remove a small metal panel installed just below the stove top panel (right side of range), its held with approx. 8 screws. There is one other panel that must be removed as well, (you may want to remove this panel first). It is an enameled-like panel approx. 5" wide x 36" long located at the front of the range (right side) running the length/height of the range (held with 2 screws). Get those 2 panels removed and you will see the spark module attached near center of range just under stove-top panel. Module is attached to a small metal bracket, module has 6 wires attached to it (2 feeding the module and 4 exiting the module to the burners). Bracket screws are nearly impossible to get at (you need a very stubby Phillips screw driver, if you can even get your hand in there). Anyway, I simply released the module from the bracket, then carefully bent the bracket back toward me; to provide work area for my hands. The bracket bends easily and really can't be broken. Now, at this point (using longer needle-nose pliers) detach the wires from the old module (remembering each wires location) or, as I did, hold the replacement module near the existing module and transfer the wires one at a time. Now, slap it all back together as you took it apart. Really simple job, total time is easily/generally under 30 minutes. It may be easier to access the module by removing all the burner components and raising the stove-top? Not sure? I chose not to do the repair that way. Hard part was locating where the manufacturer hid the module on the range. :- ) D.I.Y.ers Rock!!!

The pull handle on the oven door was broken on one side

Open oven door about 8 inches, the door will stay the that position. Remove the 3 screws in the top of the door. Carefully pull the top section up and out enough to move the angle pieces on right and left sides of door to the side slightly. Pull the top section up slightly and remove the front glass panel. You can remove the brackets(2 screws each) that hold the handle and top door section. The handle is held to the brackets by 1 screw, remove these screws and the handle is free. If you don't have the replacement handle yet you can put the glass, side angles, and top section without the brackets and use the oven. Reverse the process with the new part.
