The hardest part was getting the oven out. The double oven is pretty heavy. The screws were on the sides under a removable strip. Have a table about the same height as the base of the oven. It was easy to slide it straight over to the table. The schematics are on top of the oven. Although you probably won't need them for the parts we replaced. When you have the oven out and the back panel removed, it is easy to identify the exact parts you are replacing. The part numbers were the same on the fuses. The thermostat was a simple pull apart. Then undo the 2 screws inside the oven. The heat sensor required some figuring. There is a pin that holds it in place in a plastic casing. We used a small flat head screw driver to push the pin flat to loosen it from the casing. This part was behind the digital panel and the only one that didn't require the oven coming out.We would easily do this project again and glad we did. We saved $340.00 by doing it ourselves. I am glad I found PartSelect.com Make sure you turn off the breaker to the appliance first. You don't want any electrical surprises. The hospital bill would be more expensive than the repairman !!

After some major troubleshooting and "some" help from support folks at fixya.com I was able to pin the problem down to a blown thermistor. The repair was very simple - pull the back plate off and remove the two screws holding the thermistor in place. Replace thermistor and test both heating elements. I assume during the cleaning cycle the thermistor was over heated. Makes one wonder if it was a faulty thermistor or will it happen again on the next cleaning cycle.
