Tips for removing and replacing the electronic control unit in a Thermador RDF30 Range

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Oven-Range-Stove Repair 17 December 2011 · 1,731 views

Removing control unit or display on Thermador RDF30...instructions say to remove the maintop; this is a pain and NOT necessary.
1. Remove the 4 screws under the top front panel and slide the front outer panel assembly (trim panels with end caps) down and toward the front to remove (there's a pressure spring (hold down clip) which makes this difficult);
2. Carefully rotate the glass panel up and away over the buttons, taking care not to break panel or buttons;
3. Remove screws from metal control mounting plate/panel;
4. This is the hard part: pull/rotate/cajole metal panel out from under the maintop. It's a tight fit between the burner valve stems and the maintop -- I used a nylon blade putty knife between the maintop and the panel to coax it out. After that it's easy: mark your connections and remove display.

TO MAKE THE REINSTALL EASIER (POSSIBLE) I used aviator snips to enlarge the holes for the burner stems in the metal control plate/panel (made them "taller"), and bent the top panel ("control cover") up a bit so it won't hang on the spark switch connections on the burner valves. Poor design IMO. But this method beats breaking your venturis by trying to take off the maintop.

How to replace the glass cooktop in a Frigidaire / Electrolux range

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Oven-Range-Stove Repair 15 December 2011 · 2,942 views

If your are going to replace a broken glass top with 5 elements, this might help.....
Posted Image
Pull the unit out so you can get to the front and the sides without being a contortionist and more room to lay the two tops side by side.... Remove the two screws holding the white panels ( left and right sides) ,

Posted Image
lean panel towards the door, the lowest fastener has a slot to hold in place

Posted Image
, Remove the panel below the cooktop, four screws on each side

Posted Image
, There is a screw , black, on the front of the oven opening.. remove the screws left/right sides .

Posted Image
.... Remove the screws at the clip, two legs visible,.......Get a mirror and look at each end, up in a small opening the is a screw, remove two..left/right sides..... then the two screws near the oven opening and the lower panel will fall down... Then using the mirror again look up at the front edge near the control panel, remove the four screws .....on the left/ right sides you will see the screws holding the rear part of the cooktop , remove them..

Posted Image
..disconnect the wire harness

Posted Image
....lift the cooktop and push/pull the harnessout of the opening, then remove the cooktop.......

Posted Image
..lay it upside down on a padded surface, lay the new one next to it

Posted Image
...lift all of the mounting brackets.. Mark the locations of the /straps on the base of the elements....I forgot to take a picture of the removal of the 'straps'....Insert a small bladed screw driver in between the strap and the bracket, pry down on the strap side till the bracket will slip over the strap, carefull, the strap is still under pressure. Now I know you are wondering " how am I going to lift all five elements with out breaking any-thing "??? Just go out to your service van and get a piece of ply wood ( more on your unusual wood products later )..

Posted Image
..Stack the element onto the wood , transfer to the new cooktop and install into the correct locations.. Use the previous marks to align the strap locations..Use the same screw driver to reinstall the straps... ( picture here ))...Just push the bracket over the strap and remove the tool... Lay the new cook top onto the range, re install the wire harness, connect them... Install the two cook top screws left/right sides... ( about 5 pictures ago to view )...Just lay the front gasket ( for the keypad ) on to the keypad untill you start to reassemble... Install the four fasteners across the front , near the keypad,.. to hold the cooktop in place,..................... position the gasket loosely and then tighten the four fasteners more, If you tight them just right the gasket will stay in place to finish tightening the fasteners..... Now just re install all of the parts in the reverse order ..................Hope fully everything should go as planed..................
