How do I remove my this part from my existing stove and replace it with the new control panel? Are there screws I need to remove or does the control panel pop off? In replacing this panel, do I need to purchase any other parts?
ANSWER Hello John. Here are the instructions from the manufacture. Hope this helps.
Grasp the light panel cover at the rear,
where it is hinged to the control panel. Lift
upward at the rear, just far enough to insert
a small, thin bladed screw driver between
the end cap and the fluorescent light cover.
Slide the blade forward toward the front
while lifting upward on the cover. Be sure to
wrap the blade of the screw driver with tape
so as not to scar the plastic shield.
Remove screws on endcaps, which secure the
endcaps to the control console. Be careful
when removing the endcap not to break the
locating tab at the bottom of the endcap.
LOOSEN screw. At the bottom of the control panel . DO NOT REMOVE.
This screw is just long enough that it will
protrude into a slot in the side frame,
causing the panel to bind as you slide it
down and forward. Loosening the screw a
couple of turns will back it off enough that it
will no longer protrude into the side frame
Grasp the face panel at the bottom front with
one hand, while gently pushing down on the
top of the control panel with your other. Pull
panel downward to release it from the vent
deflector while at the same time pull the panel off.
