This oven door seal creates a protective seal around an oven door to prevent heat from running out of a closed oven and keeps room air from entering the oven. This part is 17.5 inches long and made of rubber. The metal hook on both ends of the seal is there to keep it in place. Remove screws to take off old seal using pliers and replace it with the new seal. For detailed installation instructions and accurate guidance, refer to the diagram provided by the manufacturer. As a safety precaution make sure to unplug oven from power source and wait for oven to cool before starting this replacement project.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
No "repair" needed, just parts replacement. The oven door had (3) rubber-like gasket strips, held in place by metal strips at each end of the gaskets, which fit into 3/16" diameter holes in the oven frame. The (1) gasket ordered for the "horizontal"/upper position was an exact replacement and fit like a charm. However, the pair of (2) gaskets ordered for the "vertical"/sides position were not designed for this range and needed MODIFICATION in order to be installed. Specifically, the metal strips at the end of the gaskets were TOO WIDE to fit into the existing holes in the oven frame. I was able to make the metal strips Using a pair of needle-nose pliers and a pair of nipper-pliers, I was able to flaten-out each of the four metal strips, cut each metal strip [basically in half], re-bend the halfed-strips into "hook" shapes, and then re-insert the metal hooks into the existing 3/16" holes.So far, so good; no complaints from the tenant!

we had to soak the certain parts of the seal to straighten it so while that was being done we took the screws out and took off the old seal. then we put the new seal on and put the door all back together.
