Had to disassemble the top of the stove and the control panel on the front. I took digital pictures as I disassembled so I could refer to them when putting the stove back together, especially when disconnecting wiring. It took about 3 hours, but most of that time was spent thoroughly cleaning 16 years of baked on grease from places that are normally unaccessible. The new latch works great - the wife is happy!

uneven heating/ high heat broiler to no heat

  • Customer: Jack from Houston TX
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 3 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
After replacing heating element then selector switch, I came to think the only other thing was the thermostat. It finally worked...but not without some tribulations. This note is for a repair involving thermostat for a w130 Jenn-air or Maytag wall oven, DO NOT FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED WITH REPLACEMENT PART! It says the BR and BA terminals are to be reversed with this replacement part...not so! After re-connecting (as per instructions) NOTHING WORKED! If you have this model Jennair or Maytag, my suggestion is to replace the wires to connections just as they were removed from the old one. I finally did this after much frustration and electrical testing with a multimeter. Hope this note helps someone. Good Luck!

Replacement of broil element in wall oven

  • Customer: David from San Rafael CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 3 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
In principle it should be easy to replace the broil element in the wall oven, after unscrewing the supports for the back and front of the element (see other postings for details). The difficulty is with the ground screw, which is inconveniently only accessible from behind close to the back wall of the oven. A very short phillips screw driver is required, but designed so that good torque can be applied for unscrewing and replacing. The newly designed ground connector on the latest replacement elements makes life a little easier, but still be prepared to work slowly and carefully to complete the replacement. Note the new ground screws supplied only work with a flat-blade screw driver, not a phillips-type.

Burned up oven door gasket needed replaced.

  • Customer: Daniel from Prescott MI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 4 of 7 people found this instruction helpful
I started by removing the door, then trying to remove all of the screws in the oven casing. Of course the very middle screw in the bottom of the oven was rusted and dammged by use. I had to use a drill bit and remove the old screw. After dissasembly of the oven casing, I found that the lip that supports the gasket was rusted and burnt away about 3/4 in. I placed the new gasket in and found that when closed it covered this defect and sealed. I reassembled and cheked for operation.Ok! Imortant--remove the elements before removing oven casing.

The writing on the knobs had become so faint that you could no longer see what anything said.

  • Customer: Bruce from Pataskala OH
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 3 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
I placed a small flat blade screw driver behind the knob and pulled them off.

It took longer to open the package and remove the knobs from their bags than it did to make the repair.

Replace clock-adjust knob

  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Although normally a push fit, we drilled and tapped a #6-32 cross hole and used a set-screw to attach the small knob.

The original knob is still hiding somewhere but, thanks to PartSelect we are back in business !

Timer know would no longer set the time...

  • Customer: Rachael from Adams MA
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I removed the screws holding the bezel, removed the control panel frame, unhooked the four wires from the timer, and removed the timer. I cut the glue holding the circuit board into the frame and removed the circuit board. I unsoldered the faulty encoder switch, dissassembled the switch, determined the correct specifications for the switch, and ordered the nearest equivalent from an electronics supplier. I modified the new encoder to accept the shaft from the old encoder and I re-drilled the circuit board to fit the new encoder. I then soldered and wired the encoder, reversing the wires to correct the direction of rotation. I then reinstalled everything and added the knob purchased from partselect.com. Now it works. Tough repair - not for the faint of heart or those of average skill. But for the record, installing the knob was of course child's play and took only a moment.

I just removed the lamp retainer plate and glass cover, inserted the new gasket, and screwed everything back in place. Simple as that. I was enormously pleased that the part arrived so quickly -- just in time for me to cook my Thanksgiving turkey and use the self-cleaning feature.
