I am guessing it will be about circa 2000. There is no access to screws in between the doors. The top is in two half's, the LH side is four gas rings and that is held down with four screws on the top panel and a couple more at the back, this is ready for removal now when it is lifted up the retaining screw for the control panel is clearly visible and no problem to access. The RH side is electric and has a griddle plate which is easily removed and has two retaining screws which I have removed but the other part of this top half is a glass hotplate which I cannot remove but you can see that there are the other two retaining screws underneath it which I need to take out so that I can lift the second top plate out to access the last control panel retaining screw and then change the oven control. There is no access from the inside of the oven upwards either I have looked.
Hi,can you send me a pic of this one?I know how to get in there but I need to be sure what one you have exactly to be sure;-)Thank youTech Michael

There are two screws under the griddle plate which I have already removed and I have seen the two at the back but there is something holding the top plate down on the outside edge, I have tried gently prising it off but if I give it any more pressure I will break the glass. When it is prised up as far as possible although there is not much room to see there is something going down from the plate to the body although as I say there is not enough room to see much but it is undoubtedly another two screws.

Sorry I have not been back to you on this but we had a death in the family so the cooker had to take a back seat!
Did you read the last comment? I have tried again but there is no movement to be had until I can access those other screws.
Hi Im sorry to hear that!In any case let me see if there is a diagram available for you. I will be back soon with that if I can find one.
