Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
well some of these door seals can be difficult to install, in your case at least part of the door will have to come apart, this can be tricky but not impossible. the door has to come off and be laid on table to do it. sometimes you don't have to take to much off door but I cant tell by pictures what has to come off to change, sometimes the place you buy seal will have instruction for installation but not always. go to www.repairclinic.com to see part. good luck thanks Bryan.if this helped you you can accept , feedback is welcomed

Reply to a1speedyappliance's Post: The seal is not on the door. It is on the oven side.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
okay most are on door , it dosnt show where your is on oven in diagram , it does show clips do you see any clips. ? this may just push into a groove have you tried to pull gasket out a bit to see if it comes out of a groove? are there any screws around it? the only diagram i've found doesnt show how its attached, i will check for more info. thanks Bryan

Reply to a1speedyappliance's Post: There is a bracket like thing about 5 inches long with a screw holding it in. No clips. I tried to gently pull on the corner and it didn't budge. Thank you by the way.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
iI looked up diagram again and it looks like there may be screws holding the gasket in. try loosening screws a bit and see if the gasket comes out it may just be slid in behind frame part . let me know Bryan
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Thank you again. That is what it looks like too, that it justs slides into the frame..but we can't take a chance to ruin the oven because it is old and built in and would cost alot to replace..so maybe I will find a repairman. This was helpful!
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
okay sorry I couldnt have done more , sometimes the older ovens are worth keeping because they were built better , if it runs good otherwise its probably worth repairing. thanks again for using just answer, feedback is appreciated , Bryan
