Do I have to take of the whole top to change the thermostat ap3853531?
ANSWER Hello Carle. No, you can remove the control panel and access it. 1. Unplug range or disconnect power.
2. Pull the range forward far enough to access
the end cap screws.
3. To remove the control panel:
a) Remove the screw from each end cap. b) Open the oven door and remove the
three screws from the bottom of the
control panel. c) Lift the front of the control panel, pull it
forward, and slide the front edge of the
cooktop glass out of the slot in the front
of the panel.
d) Rotate the control panel up and over so
the bottom side faces up. To remove a bimetal switch:
a) Remove the wires from the terminals.
b) Remove the mounting screw.
