WHIRLPOOL RANGE HELP NEEDED

6 posts in this topic

Dear Master,

I have a Whirlpool range that I recently repaired.The problem was the membrane pad.I ordered it and it came with the whole control panel and touchpad.It solved the problem:ie the oven didnt work.However there is a fraction of an inch gap where the control panel meets the glass stove top and this is the issue with the customer.I think she is one of those u just cannot please, however she may be correct.Wanted to know what you thought and perhaps get a color picture of how that is suppose to be,or where I can look at another range like this.The Model is a GY398LXPS02.Your help as always has been super.

And you installed what looks like a control board and two metal parts? http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Touchpad-and-Control-Panel/W10122303/1373171?modelNumber=GY398LXPS02 If so, then I think it's just a matter of installing it properly. Usually there is a lip at the bottom or top where the control mounts first then snugly fit the control on the range.

I take a lot of pictures if it the first time I am taking something apart so I can avoid such problems. Especially metal clips that can go in multiple ways.

I've changed this kit before. The key pad dimensions have changed and you have to install all parts that come in the kit. The key pad kind of floats until the plate is mounted inside the panel.

Thanks for all the replies, however this is gotta be my fault for not looking at it more carefully before taking it apart.The edges are flush where the end caps meet the trim but the gap is still there between the stove top and lip of panel.If anybody has a picture of how this is suppose to be I would greatly appreciate it.Iam starting to think this is the way its suppose to be.Just need an example to know for sure.If I was dealing with a normal person this wouldnt even be an issue,however this cust is not.
