Dales-Electronic :

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries

Dales-Electronic :

Switch off the power. Remove the unit from the cabinet once you have it out come back to me ~ Ian

JACUSTOMER-jrdw9067- :

There must be a way of removing the front panel without having to remove the oven from its cabinet.

Dales-Electronic :

Your problem is that without removing the top cover you cannot get access to the retaining clips that hold it into the rear panel holder. You have to remove the facia panel/buttons to pull the timer out but only after the top is removed ~ Ian

JACUSTOMER-jrdw9067- :

Thank you I will not be able to carry out the removal until Monday with the help of my son-in-law.

Dales-Electronic :

OK that is fine, give me a ping when you are ready and we can continue with the process ~ Ian
