Oven door would not close properly. Believe this caused control panel to fail from overheating.
Parts arrived as scheduled with no problems. First I removed and repaced the 2 oven door hinges to see if this would fix the problem with the door not closing all the way (had to push door to get the oven light to go out). Since no instructions were shipped with the new hinges, I followed the information given by other customers on how they were able to change the hinges. Changing the hinges DID NOT fix the problem with the door! The new hinges did not pull the door any tighter than the old hinges. Door closure problem finally fixed by supergluing several round mangnets (Lowes) to the door which pulls the door tight when closed. I learned this trick from another customer's report (thanks for the idea!). Next I removed and replaced the failed control panel. This was the second panel to fail on this oven in the 5 years it has been installed! The first panel was replaced under warranty after approx 2 years of use. Hopefully, the magnets will keep the oven door closed and prevent overheating of the control panel which will allow this poorly designed oven to last a little longer this time!
