Why are the circuit boards for the Whirlpool built in ovens not available? My double oven is only about 10 years old, needs a new board but all I can get is a rebuilt one. For 475 dollars, installed. Seems like a rip off.
Answer Hello Chef Bubba, The manufacturer will discontinue parts on older products from time to time. Quite often, they will provide a substitue part number, if one is available from a newer appliance. If you will provide us with the model number of your oven we will be happy to research out parts data information and see if a control board or touchpad assembly is available. Thanks

Hello, I am in need of installation help with this part, please provide me with detailed instructions on how to remove old panel and install the new part.
Answer Hello Behzad,
Turn the power off to the unit and verify there is no power to it. Open the door and remove the screw near the bottom that retains the trim. Pull the trim out about an inch and slide it straight down. This will expose two screws, (one on each side of the oven), on the outside edge of the bottom of the control panel. Now you pull the bottom of the control panel out about an inch and slip it up and off. Be aware that there is still a ribbon cable connecting the two parts. Assembly is in the reverse order.
