Is a new overlay necessary when I replace the control panel, on my range? I had it replaced less than a year ago, and it's already burned out, local merchant won't stand behind their repair.
Answer J., Most servicers prefer to replace the faceplate/overlay 316419821 when replacing the ERC/Clock. If you're not careful and observant, the mylar faceplate can wrinkle and crease when being removed or reinstalled on the ERC/Clock. It's not a very aesthetic look, if that occurs.
Using a blow dryer, or low wattage heat gun will help to make it a bit more easy and visually pleasing. But you still have to be careful.
