Removed two nut screws (accessed with oven door open) with nutdriver, panel dropped out. Transferred wiring one-by-one to new switch, removed old switch with allen wrench, installed new switch, replaced panel. Done! However, the problem is not corrected and all other possibilities have been explored with no solution in site. Ideas needed.

Looked up schematic. Removed 3 screws holding cover. after I shut power off of course. Took off knob. Oriented new control to the one on panel. Disconnected each wire one at at time and immediately attached it to the new control for each wire. Removed screws holding old control and inserted and screwed to the new control and put the knob back on. Put the cover back on. Worked fine. Probably should replace the others as they don't turn as easily as the new one. Probably will spray some contact cleaner which will give me a few more years.

The two mounting clips supplied with the switch would not fit onto the two studs in the die casted plate (too small) . In removing one of the old clips, the stud broke off. Thus I had to break off the other stud and drill out the area to allow two screws to be inserted to mount the switch securely.

The hardest part was removing the old switch. It had locking washers that were very hard to remove. After that it was a breeze. Be sure to turn off the electricity to the oven.

I'm sure I saved a ton of money and wife was ecstatic, it had been broken for a year or more.

removed old switch, by removing two screws which held a metal plate to which the switch is fastened. Then removed four wires to switch (TURN OFF POWER FIRST) The only difficulty was the two small compression type washers which hold the switch to the metal plate.

Turn power off to stove. Removed two screws and lift out switch assembly. Removed each connection one at a time and placed them on the new switch. i tried the compression fittings that were sent but they were to small as I had read elsewhere so I used two small nuts to reinstall the switch. I took less than 30 minutes.

Fan and oven light would operate.

Removed the old part by removing the clips and wire connectors. Then placed the new switch in place and reapplied the wire connectors. Tried to then place the new clips on the posts but the clips were very fragile and they broke. Then decided to thread the posts and use nuts. Used a minature die to thread the posts, applied washers and nuts and finished the job.
