Wrong Overlay
« on: October 29, 2008, 12:54:22 PM »

so this morning i go to change out  an eoc and overlay on a Model FEF368CCTD (bisque fridgidaire gallery el range) at a customers house.  i go to install the new overlay (316076106) on the new clock (316080021) @ the house but it just doesnt look right.  The overlay from apwager which they say is the right part # for the model is completly wrong.  Its black not bisque, and the buttons and the script on the overlay don't line up.  My question is has anyone else ever run into this, or do you know the right part number for the machine?

They changed to the black overlay despite the color of the range. I always rip the old one off the bad clock and paste it on the new one. Since it's behind the escutcheon on the edges, it won't show.
