This was the easiest thing we've ever repaired. I read the online comments from
others who had replaced the bake element and decided to give it a try. Ordered the part from PartSelect and received it within 24 hours. Flipped the circuit breaker to the oven and tested to see if the power was indeed off.
Used a phillips head screwdriver to remove the two screws holding the element to the back wall of the oven; pulled the element out about three inches and disconnected the blade
connectors. Thought it would be difficult since the oven is 23 years old--not a problem,
they came right off. Connected the new element to the wires, pushed the wires back into
to oven wall and put the two screws back into place. Finished in less than ten minutes.
I had called our local appliance store where I bought the oven and asked what the repair
costs would be. We saved $178 by doing it ourselves.
