Hello there,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Please note, I am just a moderator for this category, I can only try and find experts to help, I can't answer the question itself.

Thank you!

I can assist you with this. Its pretty simple,

You can access the old unit by removing it from the back of the panel. Some screws and clips (base at the two sides) The clock is usually secured with screws. - remove old unit replace with new - no peel or scrape usually necessary;-)

I will continue with you and even help you locate the new part if you need but since this question may continue for some time, if you will rate my service as good or better
before you close this window, the system here will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you
so your question wont close or time out and you can contact me anytime at no additional cost.
Thank you

OK understand so far, but I guess it is necessary to remove the complete front panel housing the electronic timer. I've tried this by removing the two Philip's headed screws, accessed from the underside of the panel, but still cannot remove the front panel! Are there more screws hidden somewhere or is it necessary to apply some leverage somewhere? Thanks.

Hi, these can be tight but usually the rear is where you need to get to.

Some of that year models have a plastic face that can be removed but there are also plastic clips that you can pry and pop if yours is this way.

Otherwise the back is the way to go as with most of these.

If you can send me a picture of yours I will know for sure .

Thank you

I'm trying to send a couple of photos of the front of the oven but the 'Just Ask' site is having a technical problem downloading them - I'll try again later - thanks. Rodney

Hi yes the site is a little strange today lol;-)

But on most of these units it is the rear or the top that will be removable to achieve access to the timer.
