Hello, slide the oven out so you have room to work on it. Start by removing the control panel. Screws along the bottom and side and the front control comes off. Either that or one screw in each lower corner holding the panel in place.

Once the panel is off you will be able to remove the screws on the front that hold the top in place.

Now the screws along the side can be removed. Number #5 #6 have screws.

Only screws visable are under control panel cannot see any on sides. Tried removing screws under control panel and cannot lift up or pull off the control panel at all. No screws on side of range, screws must be hidden underneath trim.

Upload a picture of the front of the control panel with the door open. With a picture I will be able to tell you for sure. Look up shows other way so.. Serial break maybe I don't know.. Let me know if you can upload a pic.

Thanks

Yes, I got them thank you. Open the oven door and look up in each corner under the panel. Each side has one screw. Remove each screw and the panel will slide up and off.

There are plastic end caps that slide into channel on each side of stove top and seem to be attached to the controls,and controls will not lift up as there is a raised piece of metal that holds controls nor will it pull straight out because of the end caps no visible screws seen on outside to be removed.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Medic, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

Have you removed the two screws under the panel? Once in each corner? Once those screws are removed the control lifts up and forward coming off the range giving access to the control board and inside.

I removed all screws (6) under controls. Will not lift up because plastic end caps have a tab that is slid into side of wall, and this also stops me from lifting up control panel.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Medic, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

Would you be able to open the oven door and take a picture so I can see what the panel where the top of the door hits?

Thanks
