Unfortunately there is no video on how to remove this control panel but it is fairly easy if you know how. First, flip the breaker off to the oven or unplug the oven. Next, open the oven door and remove the screws coming in from below the control panel. Now pull the oven out about 6 inches. There are 2 screws coming in from the right and left side just behind the control panel that you need to remove on each side of the control panel. After those screws are removed and the ones coming in from the bottom are removed, you can grab the control panel and pull down and forward to remove the control panel. All the wires will still be attached to all the switches and the display board however.
