Jon :

sorry.

Jon :

I thought you had written a typo. I am unfamiliar with the brand STOVES.

Jon :

What are you looking to do with the micro switch?

Jon :

what is the stove doing? or not doing?

Jon :

I am very familiar with many other brand stoves/ ranges. And I have almost 15 years experience working on these types of machines. And since most of the stoves are the same or similar, I am sure I could help you.

Jon :

Is a light or fan not working in the unit?

Jon :

Most switches are just behind the girl. and most girls will have a few screws holding the grill in place.

Jon :

You just have to locate the screws.

Jon :

which in most cases are just under the grill itself. so when the door is closed, it is right above the door.

Jon :

take a look there and tell me what you see?

JACUSTOMER-q09kqjte- :

grill not working. grill fan comes on but no heat. changed the element but still no heat. am presuming that as the fan works that the grill switch is probably ok. so have ordered the door microswitch to change it to see if the fault is there . it is not visible when rear panel removed so presumably some dismantling at the front required. this is the advice i need. how do we access the door microswitch? ta

JACUSTOMER-q09kqjte- :

no visible switch mechanism so switch must be operated by the hinge. front plate for grilland second oven below fixed with a no of screws but two larger screws inside the grill compartment look more promising. they are 2/3 way back on either side. is it likely that the whole grill compartment will slide out if these are removed?

Jon : Okay then that seems about right.
Jon : just remov those screws and you will find out.
Jon : if that doesn't work thn I will have to do some more research in your model
Jon : but of all of this is for the grill not heating up and you have changed the element and that didn't help, I don't the door micro switch will help either.
Jon : this seems and sounds like a control issue.
