I have checked the rod and it appears fine. So it must be the switch. I assume access to the switch is behind the black metal panel under the
control panel???? I see screws in the black panel. Please clarify if that is how I get to the switch......
Is there a schematic available showing this appliance's parts and construction?
I just fixed the oven. The problem was not a defective switch. The problem was the push rod had partially disconnected from the existing switch. One of the two screws that connect the push rod to the switch was completely out and laying on the horizontal surface. The other screw was loose. Now I have an extra switch that I bought from Sears Parts. It arrived yesterday. I was waiting for it before I dismantled the oven. I may try to return it for a refund. -Bill XXXX
