How do you remove cabinet panel to replace igniter? Thanks. Mike

Mike for Model Number Pyg2300aww

ANSWER Mike, To access the ignitor, unplug unit from wall. Using a putty knife push in on the spring clips that are located between the main top and the front panel. This will allow you to lift the top. With top lifted, disconnect the door switch and remove the 5/16" screw on either side of the front that holds it in place. Roll front panel forward and lift off. You may be able to access the ignitor at this point but if not then you will have to remove the bulkhead and the drum. To remove bulk head you will remove the 4 screws holding in place and lift off. To remove the drum you will first need to release the belt from the motor and idler pulley. Once removed you will lift drum out and you will have access to the ignitor. Reinstall in reverse.
