My bad, the model number is ***** I GUESS MY MAJOR QUESTION IS WHERE DO I ACCESS THE FAN, DO I REMOVE THE TOP OF THE RANGE OR IS THE FAN LOCATED IN THE BACK OR THE SIDE OF THE RANGE.

Thank you!

Sorry for the delay with the holidays and then yesterday was my 29 TH wedding anniversary also.

On your model the cooling fan can be accessed from the rear of the unit , you will need to remove the rear panel, then you will need a short stubby Philips screw driver to remove the two screws on each side of the cooling fan cover ,then the fan / housing also has four screw that hold the fan and housing in place.

Then the two fan motor harness wires.

and reverse the procedure .

If you have any questions just reply back to me .
