I never have swapped out one of these. Maybe someone who has will post it. I do have the HSS service manual around here somewhere I got from fearless leaders stash.

Service Manual


Page 26 shows how to replace it. Check it for continuity. If it is open it is bad. Look for signs of melting and junk.

Looks like it's in the door to me.

If you have not looked at it already here is the Parts Diagram for that model.


Hope you find our site helpful.
