Frigidaire Range Front Panel Removal
« on: May 12, 2009, 03:58:01 PM »
Trying to remove front panel on Frigidaire range to get access to the clock/timer.  Can't remove the end caps.  I seem to have removed all visible screws.  Any help would be appreciated.

To replace the clock, simply remove the back panel of the console:

i could not find your exact model, but a close one shows me a slide in with controls on the front

if so there are 2 screws holding th bottom, open door and look up to remove these, then there are a few screws on each side that have to be removed(range must be slid out of its opening to see these, once those screws on the sides are removed you can lift up the cooktop a little bit, this will free the control panel from the channel that locks it and the cooktop togeather

Repairman is right on with this one.
Remove the back panel behind the backguard to access the ERC.

i dont usually argue with fellow technicians,but..... how long of a screwdriver are you using to remove that EOC by taking the back panel off?
it would have to be 3 feet long!!!
this is a SLIDE IN MODEL
the controls are on the front
there is no back panel to the controls
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=110199   here is a picture of a slide in range, this exact model

i would love to see a video of how you are going to get that clock out from the back panel   :2funny:

I think it would have helped if I had looked up the correct model number.

So now he needs to slide it out and remove the top, or does that escutcheon drop down?

Thank you for all your help.  I took the back off and indeed it was very difficult to do anything from the back (narrow opening, many wires to navigate through to reach the controls in the front panel).

I decided to attempt to remove the front panel again but still couldn't get it off.  It was loose but somehow connected to the top and just swivelled.

To make a long story short, I put the back back on, slid the range back in the the counter and turned the power back on.  The clock gained time before (about 30 seconds every minute) but now runs perfectly.  I was told before that the clock had to be replaced if it was gaining time so I don't know why it started working properly again.

Anyway, I put everything back together and now have a functional range again.


Thanks again.
