I've had a lovely day of watching youtube videos that would make perfect sense if only I could access my timer from the back ::). But no go for this model. When the back panel is removed you can plainly see the pointy tips of the screws that hold it in place which I guess means the screw heads are located in the front. I've already removed the screws from the top trim canopy/shield hoping this would do the trick. Nope.
So far, I removed the top screws from the  backguard support thinking this would release the end caps. Which it didn't.

So can anyone please please tell me how to remove the front panel. I've felt along all sides of the front panel and feel no screws. Oh and I ripped the stainless steel skin off the front panel by accident. Think I can glue it back on to the glass?
 :thanks:

Well I solved the s/s panel oops removal by using a high heat silicone adhesive. From the feel and look of the product it's probably the same adhesive originally used.


Now to drink a cuppa and resume thinking through the front panel removal problem which of course is now driving me a little crazed. I probably should find a two year old to take it apart. They can break anything.

If I remember correctly, you need to remove the top console trim or the strip below the glass to remove the glass. I'm working from memory here.

Some pictures might help. This is one of those where you really need to have the appliance in front of you to figure it out.

Hoping these pics are good enough for others to see what I do:

A picture of the range minus the stainless steel skin which exposes the glass faced control panel




Closeup of the existing EOC/oven timer in place.



Side birds eye view of the unit minus the trim/canopy shield(part 21 in factory parts catalog):



close up of screw positions of EOC/Timer:


Sorry pics are so big. Still wrangling with the beta PhotoBucket

I spent some time yesterday trying to figure out if the control panel removes via a similar mechanism as found on some oven doors. No success yet (it's really hard to see in that area) but I wasn't even sure if this method made sense for the local. Thanks for giving me hope :)

Solved the problem(finally). This post is for future reference of anyone else facing the same problem.
Remove the bottom screws on both the left and right sides of the support back-guard (part 15 or 15A depending on model) and the glass panel that holds the EOC/oven timer will fall away. Be sure to place something atop the rangetop to break the fall as I'm sure you don't want to replace the glass panel as well  :P.

Happy repairs out there to you all.
