Replacing timer unit

I am attempting to replace the timer unit but after removing all the apparently relevant screws around the top area nothing seems to come apart. Am reluctant to use too much force so am wondering if there is a trick or technique I am not aware of. Can anyone advise procedure for dismantling to get at the timer please? NOTE: If anyone is attempting this themselves then disconnect the appliance from the mains electricity source first.

    Thanks for the very prompt response. I had wondered if it might be the case that perhaps the whole thing would need dismembering to achieve the objective. I am very impressed with Fixya - it's great that people are willing to share their expertise and experience in this way.

Nothing is working in my oven not even the led timer is lighting up

When the timer, clock etc didn't light up my oven stopped working. Replaced the clock display unit and all is now fine. A simple switch over just remove one wire at a time and place it on the new unit, the only difficult part was gaining access to remove the display unit itself.

Oven will sometime take an hour to get to temp after being turned on. any thoughts?

If your oven is older or you live near the water check if there is a build up of fine rust over the burners. A fine wire brush lightly run over the top of the burners may be your solution. Before you attempt this disconnect electrical power and turn off the gas supply. If you are mechanical remove the front lower cover by opening the doors, removing the two screws located in the top of the lower cover next to the door hinges. The cover will remove to the front. Next remove the screws holding the shield in fromt of the burners. A long handled fine wire brush will allow you to brush the top of the burners. If there is a film of fine rust it will not be apparent when looking. After careful reinstallation of the burner shield and ensuring there is a safe area away from the exposed electrical connections for you. Reconnect electrical power and gas to the oven temporarily. This will alow the unit to be operated enableing you to look past the pilot flame to see if the burner flames are even across the burners. Disconnect electric and gas supply from the unit prior toiInstalling lower cover. After complete reassembly reconnect power and gas and enjoy.

Creda Solar Plus Model 48339N Clock/Timer not working

You have to remove the complete top assy as one unit. To do this you need to remove the side panels, there are screws at the rear, and some at the front of the oven, you will then be able to see the screws securing the top
The top then slides towards the rear, then you can gain access to the timer unit.
Hope this helps.

Need to replace halogen bulb that illuminates Advantium interior

Mine is installed also, and I've had to replace the bulb twice. I wised up the second time and installed an access hole where I can pull my microwave out about 6" and access the bulb. I use a 35 watt 120v halogen bulb, with a GY 8.6 base, Lowe's part number 15797. If your's is different, the specs will be stamped on the metal beside the reflector when you remove the sheetmetal. You have to remove the microwave completely from the cabinet and remove the sheetmetal case that surrounds the entire unit. You can then access the lamp socket by looking in from the top. The first time, I took out the reflector with the socket. The bulb can be replaced by removing the two small screws adjacent to the socket on top of the reflector. My access port is a hole cut into the top. I cover the hole with a piece of sheetmetal and two sheetmetal screws. Seems to work just fine. If you do decide to cut a hole, do so with the metal enclosure off and away from the microwave to avoid getting any metal shavings into the machine!
Regards! --W/D--

Preheat worksoven wont bake

hi The range timer is usually located in the control panel on top of the range. If you suspect the timer is faulty, don't try to fix it yourself. Remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing. Here's how to remove the timer:

Step 1: Remove the back service panel to the control panel and release the spring clips that hold it in position, or remove the retaining screws.

Step 2: Push the timer forward to release it.

Step 3: Remove the electrical lead wires from the timer housing. If, when disassembling the timer, you notice that the electrical wire terminals look burned, remove these leads and buff the leads and the terminal points with fine steel wool. Burned and/or dirty terminals can cause the timer to malfunction, but a good cleaning can solve this problem.

Step 4: Replace the old timer or install a new one of the same size and type, if this is necessary. Connect the new timer the same way the old one was connected.

Control panel disassembly

Shut the breaker off to the oven first. Frame around mircowave is a snapped on front. Removing allows access to two screws under control panal. Must actually pull entire unit out about 9 inches to access top of control area to remove access panel. Once front control panel is removed and top is opened, easy access to what you need to get to. Carefully write down color coding of wires before removing any of them. Remove old power supply board and display and reconnect. Reverse process. A bit of work but if you watch the disassembly process carefully, pretty easy.

How do i change light bulb for my oven

Here is a simpler method from the same website mentioned in solution #1:
1) Turn off power to the unit
2) Open the lower oven door
3) Remove the side trim screws and pull the trims down and out.
4) Remove 2 screws on the sides of the control panel.
5) Open the Microwave door. Remove the 3 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the microwave. You can then remove the Air Vent Cover by pushing the control panel up and pull out slightly at the bottom.
6) Remove the 4 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the lower oven and remove the Air Vent Cover. (You may have to remove the left under side bracket of the Microwave door temporarily just for the Air Vent Cover to clear the screw of the bracket. Re-secure the side bracket of the Microwave door panel as the front panel may fall)
7) Remove the 2 screws which held the Microwave unit in place behind the Air Vent Cover on step 6.
8) Wiggle the Microwave unit out about half way to expose the light bulb unit on top center
9) Wiring to the Control Panel will prevent you from pulling the Microwave unit out any further. And you don't want to do that as the unit may fall. Space is cramped, but working carefully with pliers you should be able to release the springs which held down the light bulb unit and change the bulb.

By the way, the bulb is Osram 64405S. It's available online for about $2.00 plus shipping.
