Open oven door, under the lip below the control panel there are 4 Phillips head screws and 4- 1/4" screws. If you have a screwdriver with interchangeable tips, you can use it for both fasteners. Remove the Phillips head screws first, Trim piece will drop down, clean while you have it out. Remove the 1/4" screws, the control panel will drop out about 4", it will be able to rotate towards you, you will see the display unit. Using a pointed knife, slightly pry the clip away and remove the two wired plugs. on the ribbon connector, on each side there are tabs, push these in and pull up not more than 1/8", the ribbon will pop out or take VERY little to remove, it is difficult, make sure the tabs on both sides are up. Remove the display via 1/4" screws. Reverse the process with the new unit but, make sure the tabs are up on the ribbon connector, this is the only thing I had problems with, took me about 3 min to figure it out. new display came with a "Static Electricity" warning. MAKE SURE YOU TOUCH THE FRAME OF THE OVEN BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE NEW DISPLAY UNIT TO AVOID STATIC DISCHARGE AND PROTECT YOUR NEW UNIT.

Spoke to your very helpful staff, who advised me that a likely problem was the oven sensor. I took a chance and ordered the part, which came promptly. Your service video for the part was most helpful in my decision to try the part. Installation was a breeze, but it was the oven controller board that had failed and not the oven sensor. That called for a service professional, who ultimately fixed the problem. Your service though, was excellent and I would highly recommend you to others.

display lights out

I followed the first instructions that were listed on your site. Except I didn't need to remove the screws on each side of the turn on knobs. I just removed the knobs and then found out that I didn't even have to do that. The whole panel came down and I rested it on other pans so I could unhook the "cables" to the board. The most trouble I had was trying to unhook those cables. BUT once done, the job was a cinch. "I AM WOMAN - HEAR ME ROAR." Yes I did it all by myself and am quite proud of it too. Thanks so much for the instructions. VERY, VERY, helpful. Probably saved over $125 in service call-plus the markup of the dealer.

Removed two screws holding oven sensor in place. Haad to remove part of the back to access wires. Found existing wires had burnt up, and had to reterminate same. Installed new sensor, making sure the leads did not come in contact with the rear of oven compartment. (This may have been what caused failure to begin with)

The "PartsSelect" General discription of the parts funtion helped me to confirm my suspitions that there was some form of temperature registering problem. I whatched the short video they provided on how to change the part out, even though, in this case, it's pretty self explanitory.The part was in my hands a day erlier than promised and in reality, much earlier than I had anticipated from the beginng. It took me all total, 20 minutes to exchange the part out and have the oven in operation again.

F1 Fault Code - Replace the Temperature Sensor

  • Customer: Dennis from Tampa FL
  • Difficulty: Easy

The sensor inserts into a slot in the back side of the range. By removing screws on the heat shield on the backside of the range, the sensor wires will be exposed can be unplugged. Then remove the screws that attach the sensor to the back inside panel in the oven. Next, pull the old sensor out. The wire leads will get caught on the insulation blanket, no big deal. Reverse the process to install the new sensor. The new sensor comes with two connector sets for the wiring. I did the whole job for less than the cost of a service call.

The hinge broke and the oven would not close

We watched the video demo & followed it step by step. The project took about 35 minutes and we replaced the hinge on each side of the oven. First we removed the oven from the wall, then dismantled it & cleaned it thoroughly, removed the old hinges and replaced with new ones. the only problem we had was that the pin holding the hinge open was missing on one of the hinges, but we cut a nail and inserted it to hold the hinge open. The job was completed quickly, and the oven door fits and works well. Thanks for the video--it really helped us.

I searched Whirlpool, Sears and random appliance stores and Part Select was the only company to have the lens available. All other manufacturers said the lens was no longer manufactured as a stand alone piece and I would have to buy the entire light assembly. Thank you Parts Select!!!!!

Moved the clock, then remove the three connections to the clock. 5 Attach the connections to the new clock and reassemble everything in reverse. Take about 20-30 minutes. Not a difficult job.

The hardest part was deciding if this part would fix the problem. The upper oven became unusable. Both elements worked fine until reaching temperature. The oven would not come back on after that. I took two screws out. Then I pulled the wires out and unsnapped the coupling. The install was reverse. I just snapped the coupling in place and replaced the two screws. All works fine now. Saved a couple thousand as wife was prepared to buy a new one.

Door would not close

Opened oven door. Inserted a small bent nail into the small holes on the hinge. This locks the hinge from closing all the way. Removed the chrome hinge retaining plates. One at each hinge. Lifted the door off the oven. Laid door on towel. Removed 3 screws from the top of door, three screws from the bottom of door. This allows you to separate the two pieces of the door. Clean all glass surfaces, including the ones under the middle glass panel. Removed 1 screw from each hinge at bottom of door. Pull hinge from bottom of door after removing screws. Insert new spring at top of door first, replace retaining screw. Realign the two door parts and replace all screws. Set door back on hinge pocket. Be careful to insure that the hinge seats into the pocket. Open door just enough to replace retaining plates. Process was easy, but it did not fix the problem completely. Bought heavy magnets from hardware store and installed them inside the door. This with the new hinge fixed the problem.
