I have a drop in GE electric oven. The two large burners are not heating properly. One only heats on high and the other will heat just fine if I don't turn the knob above medium. If I turn the knob to above medium it will heat on high. The two small burners work fine. So I know that I need to change out the infinite control switch, but my problem is that it is a drop in oven so I cannot easily pull out the oven to get to the back panel. Is there anyway to change out the control switch from the front so that I don't have to somehow lift the oven over the base board under the oven and then pull it out. And if so how do I do this? Thanks so much for your advise.
Answer Shar, We've reviewed the parts list for the model number you supplied and determined the WB23K5027 is the correct switch(s) to order and replace for the large burners on your range. You may want to try this procedure to replace the switches, "To Access the Control Panel : 1.Raise the cooktop and remove 6 screws from the Burner Box Cover, and lift it out. 2. Remove 2 hidden screws from the bottom of the control panel located in a hole in the insulation trim cover(one on each end). Pull the trim and insulation out. 3. Remove center screw from bottom of the control panel. 4. Remove three screws from across the top edge of the control panel and pull off the wire covers. NOTE : The Control Panel can be rotated forward by removing 2 screws from the mounting bracket(one on each side) that are secured to the side panels." This is an older range and there's not a lot of information available.
