Replacing oven door strike in a top GE double oven
« on: January 11, 2011, 03:05:38 PM »

How do you replace a Oven Door Strike Assembly (WB1X5508) on a GE double oven range top oven? What do you need to remove? Looks like there are several screws at the sides of the oven with a finish trim plate surrounding the oven. Do I simply remove all screws holding this trim panel and then attach the Strike Assembly to the Trim Plate? Looks like you have to remove door first. Strike looks like a plastic stud, 2 washers and a washer with several prongs to attach the stud to the trim assembly. My stud (the plactic piece that fits into the door to latch it) either broke off or detached from the washer in back of the trim plate which force fits onto the stud. What do I remove before ordering a new part and if a new part is required what do I do to replace it.
