oven control panel install

Hello,
I need help removing the old control board of my oven.
Whirlpool electric wall oven - rbs305pdb16
The male connectors on the new board are flat with a hole in the center. They are in the P1 and K1 box of the board. Is there a trick to removing them?
In advance, thanks for the help.

MGD

You have to remove MALE connectors off the old board to use them on your new board? Is that it?

The description sounds like a standard spade connector. You can easily volt-ohm meter test by putting probes of meter in those holes.

You'd think they'd just pull out if that is what you need to do.

............

I keep re-reading your post. If the flat male spades are on the NEW board, then don't you mean you are trying to figure out how to get the FEMALE jack off these spades, so you can then first remove the old board?

Sorry for the confusion.

Yeah, I'm trying to get the female jacks off the ones on the old board.
I was referring to the ones on the new board for their look/design.

connectors removed. oven fixed

okay, my friend told me if i damaged any of the connectors he would get his soldering iron and fix anything.
He also told me the connectors I was describing were quick release connectors. Nothing quick about them, especially when three of them are encased in some plastic harness.
Anyway, I pried them off with a screwdriver, damaging the old board but not the wires. Yes!
Installed the new control board and tested the oven.
It works.

Well, at least you got it. On those plastic connectors, you usually have to squeeze in a couple pieces on the side or pry them open some while you pull. They lock the jack in place so it can't come loose by itself.
