The second answer said it might be the microcomputer not these parts. The parts are the wrong ones for these ovens and do not connect properly. Please let me know how to send these back to get a refund since I paid almost $400 dollar for them.
hi,did you give the correct model number?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes all the numbers were correct. As I said, your other technician said it was unlikely that both ovens would have the exact same code so it might be the microcomputer. If this is so, what do I do about that? The wires inside are clearly burned and frayed and need replacing also. Do I just call a repairman now? If the parts are not correct I know I can get them refunded but I need to know my next step. Please advise.
you should have no problem returning them.you may be better off calling an appliance tech
