Tenant complaind that oven door gaskets were worn out.
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!
