Step 3 - BE VERY CAREFUL not to damage the small tube
coming out of the back of the thermostat. This small tube is the
capillary line that senses the temperature of the oven. DO NOT
DAMAGE THIS TUBE IN ANY WAY.
Using a wrench, remove the gas line nut at the rear
of the thermostat. Pull the gas line out of the back of the thermostat.
Step 4 - Using a screwdriver, remove the two screws
that hold the thermostat to the gas manifold.
Step 5 - The thermostat capillary tube is held by
clips inside the oven. CAREFULLY remove it from the clips (REFER
TO STEP 3).
Step 6 - GENTLY push the tube back through the hole
and out through the frame.
The thermostat is now ready to ship for rebuild. Please
include your thermostat knob when send the thermostat so we can
calibrate your thermostat to your knob.
The parts on the right are part of the Block-Off
Kit that allows you to use your burners while your thermostat
is being rebuilt. The Kit contains other parts that might be required
for different styles of thermostats.
Step 7 - Align the screws with the holes in the manifold
where the thermostat was attached. Tighten the screws firmly.Step
8 - Turn on the gas, relight all pilot lights, reset all safety
valves and use Liquid Gas Leak Detector,
or make a mixture of dish soap & water (50/50 ratio) and test
for bubbles which are gas leaks. Tighten the screws if needed.
