This is the second time that the membrane on my control panel has quit working..... the design on the KitchenAid range is poorly done.... crumbs collect behind the panel and over time build up and disable membrane. (There is no way to clean behind membrane without breaking it.) The last time this happened several years ago it cost over $600 to fix... this time I am doing it myself and ordering the part on line. Is AP3777757 the correct part?
Answer Hello Kate. Yes, 9756559ES is correct. To replace the membrane switch you will need to peel it off the control panel and before installing the new one you will want to make sure that you clean the control panel with rubbing alcohol to get all of the sticky residue off. When putting the new part on you will want to make sure that it is straight and you get it in place right the first time because if you have to peel it back off it could damage the internal workings of the membrane.
how can I get the membrane switch out of whirlpool range gy397lxuso2 I have the control out but can not get the ss overlay to come off is it glued on or what
Answer Bill, Yes, it is "glued" on. A little heat from a blow dryer will help loosen the adhesive and make it a bit easier to remove. Then you'll need to remove any left over adhesive rubbing alcohol works pretty well, then you have to be careful attaching the replacement membrane assembly
Hi... I need to replace the membrane touch panel. Got it all opened up. So, do I just peel it off the bezel? I see where the wiring strip goes around the control panel...

My electric ignitators don't work. I had an technician out and he told me at the time that the circuit board was bad and needed replacing. He said this is something I could do to save money. When I called him two days later he told me that I needed to order sensor probe and contol panel. Does this sound right to you? The technician when I called him back act like he couldn't remember what he had done for me. Don't want to order something I don't need.
Answer Hello Charles,
Using a multimeter you can determine which part has failed. You can do a resistance check on the oven safety valve. There are 3 terminals on this valve. The middle terminal is common. If you test each coil with the wires off the terminals check from bake to common and broil to common. The resistance value should read 216 ohms. If it does not then the valve is bad and would cause ignitors not to work. If the resistance value is good then you will want to test with the oven on and gas turned to the off position for 3.2 to 3.6 amps on the ignitor. If there is not 3.2 to 3.6 then the ignitor 8054129 is bad and needs replaced. Also check the gas valve 9763716 to see if there is 3.2 to 3.6 vac and if there is not then the spark module W10331686 is bad and needs to be replaced.
