How do you install this: Item Number: AP4102828 Please? (I only have a screw driver and a hammer.)
ANSWER Hello Jacqueline,
First thing you need to do is go tool shopping. You will not need the hammer. It should be left in the other room, depending on your temperance. You will need a 1/4 inch nut driver and a Phillips head screwdriver at the least.
As is the norm in appliance repair, the first step is to guard your life by discontinuing the power supply to the unit. You will need to remove the screws on the top trim piece and lift it off. Now you need to remove all of the buttons and knobs. This will allow you to tilt the glass forward so it can be lifted out. Now the screws, (approximately 6 of them), can be removed that hold the metal plate in that the clock is mounted to. When they are removed, the metal plate can be tilted forward and the clock can be removed from it.
This is the crucial part. Do not remove all of the wires from the clock unless you enjoy nightmares. The proper way to continue at this point is to remove one wire from the old clock and, keeping it thread through the metal mounting plate, place it on the new clock assembly. I know the wires are short and it is a bit of an aggravation, but this is the easiest way and it will work. remove and replace each wire one at a time. When they are all replaced, the assembly can be reassembled in the reverse order of the disassembly. If the wires are hard to remove, you can use a small screwdriver to pry the connectors up from the base of the clock terminals. Do not grab the wire and pull. This will normally pull the wire from the spade connector and the spade connector will still be on the board. Please let us know if we can assist you further.
