Elite 790.78872400 gas range control panel needs to be replaced
While using the broiler one evening I was unable to shut it off due to no response from the keypad. My only alternative at that time was to have power cut to the outlet that I was unable to reach. I waited the prescribed minute only to have the F11 code continually flash with the never ending beeping. The range was then pulled from wall after the oven had cooled to allow us to remove the plug from the outlet. We tested it again by waiting and then plugging it in once again.
Since I was convinced that the control panel was fried, I searched for the part. If the overlay is destroyed upon removal of the control panel why are they two separate parts?
I was also particularly annoyed to find that the part was out of stock (considering how many complaints there seems to be) and that when the part was finally available it appears it has been subjected to a considerable price jump. (159.xx to 226.00???) in a short span of time.
Please advise as to the correct overlay part # since two popped up when I went to add the control panel to my cart n parts direct.
