I provided a wiring diagram for the range and a drawing of that original oven door latch assembly in the image below. Be sure that you shut off the house circuit breakers to the oven to completely disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components . The motor had 2 wires going to it on the original assembly. Even though the wiring connections on the new part may be different, the same wires that were connected to the original motor on the old latch assembly need to be connected to that new motor. You can cut off the wire connectors on that harness for the motor if necessary and connect those wires using ceramic wire nuts. You should be able to buy those ceramic wire nuts at your local hardware store or electrical supply outlet. The switch should have wires going to the C or COM connection and then the NC (Normally Closed) and NO (Normally Open) connections. You should be able to use the wiring diagram and that drawing of the micro-switch in the image below to properly connect those wires on the new switch.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician install that latch assembly, you can schedule one through this link: Sears Home Services .

The part came with no markings to show which connection is the C(COM) and which is the NC or NO connections. I need to know which one is which. Could you supply me with a drawing of the new part with which connection is which?

I found an image of that part on the Repair Clinic.com website. That image is shown below. The common spade (COM) on that micro-switch is circled in blue. The NO (Normally Open) spade is circled in red. The NC (Normally Closed) spade is circled in yellow. This information should help you connect the wires on that switch. If you need more help, let us know.

Hello LM. If you have a built-in oven like the one described above then you will probably need to shut off the house circuit breaker for the oven and pull it out of the wall (at least part of the way) to access the service cover above the control compartment. You should be able to get to the fasteners that hold that door lock assembly in place in that manner. Once you remove those screws, you should be able to open the oven door and finish that repair. I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and the model number of your oven or range (if possible). I know that it may be hard to determine the exact model number if you are not able to open that oven door.

Hi Lyle, Model # is 79046594500. I did see a picture on the website showing the two screws that I can access from the front without opening the door to remove the motor assembly. With the control panel removed and removing those two screws, will I be able to complete the repair? Or will I actually need to pull out the stove? The breaker is turned off.

If you can remove that console without opening the oven door then you do not have to pull the oven out of the cabinet as long as you can access that motor assembly from the front of that opening.
