I dismounted the oven door following the graphic templates that this site has for that model. Then I replaced the gasquet (seal window), appliying an apoxic glue to hold it on place. Then I started to put it togueter, from the bottom to the top, first the lower trim, I screwed it back to the metal frame, then the left and right trims, it goes tied by pressing it to the sides, after that I installed the top and screwed it to the frame. It holded all toguether cery well. My oven looks like new now.

Remove three screws, slid old trim piece off door. Slid new trim in place. Used ice pick to align screw holes and replaced screws. Total time about 15 minutes. Tip: used a bead of silicone sealer on the new trim strip to prevent moisture from causing new strip to rust.

Lower Door Trim gets rusty

  • Customer: James.O from Newark, DE
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I have removed this piece once before and painted it,
but it is difficult to prepare surface.

I tried to replace the part without removing the door
but had difficulty getting the screws to line up.

So, I took the door off. Forgot that you are supposed to jam
the spring hinges in the open position before you remove the door. Manual describes how to do this but picture is not very helpful. So I made two wooden dowels about 3/8" in dia by about 3/4" long. Opened the hinge with a screwdriver and jammed the dowels in place.

Door Trim went on easily and the oven door went back on quickly.

Surprised they don't make this trim piece with rust proof material.

The oven was blowing a circuit.

Removed old element by pulling apart the connectors.
Attached new element to the connectors.
Replaced cover with the two screws.

broken bottom drawer glide and missing rivet on drawer front panel

Removed the old, broken drawer glide by removing the Phillips head screw. Then placed the new glide into place and fastened with the existing screw.

The rivet on the top of the bottom drawer front was missing. I lined up the drawer front with the supporting bracket behind it and inserted the rivet. All you have to do is tap the top of the pin in the center of the rivet to lock it in place. No rivet tool is needed. That should be explained in the parts listing because I bought the rivet tool before I realized I didn't need it.

Remove top by opening oven and taking out two screws in the front. Lift up top and unplug wire connectors on bad element, writing down where they are landed. Take out screw on element bracket and replace. That easy. Be sure to unplug appliance for your safety. :-) Also just wanted to add that PartSelect was great.

really easy! Removed 2 screws under the glass top at the front, access from the open oven door, then removed the ground wire, removed the stove top, took the element holder off,( 2 screws)and replaced with new element, 30 minutes. I ordered the part and came within 18 hrs of ordering it, fantastic experience.

The switch on the door broke. This prevented my oven from cleaning and the light burned all the time so I had to unscrew it.

First I removed the two screws that hold the glass cook top in place. Then I removed 4 screws that hold a small metal plate that shields the switch. Replacing the switch was very simply just a matter of unplugging four wire connectors from the old switch, sliding the new one in and reconnecting the wires. It was very easy to find the part on the website. I just located the switch on the diagram and ordered the part. I really surprised my husband that I ordered the part and repaired the stove by myself. He was intending on calling a repairman, but I did it myself.

After removing the back of the stove, the old light socket was fairly easy to remove. The new socket slipped in place and the wires reattached and now the oven has a light again. A very simple process--especially for someone who's not an expert in repairing appliances.
