Interior window dirty (sealed unit; unable to clean)

  • Customer: Shelton from Decatur GA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Using exploded view and previous customers' comments, I disassembled the door. It was primarily a matter of finding all the screws. I recommend taking the door off first (I didn't), but watch your fingers. The hinges have very, very strong springs and you can hurt your or your helper's fingers if you're not prepared. The hardest part was keeping all the insulation in place while your're installing the assembly. I also replaced the gasket. That takes four hands, two to hold the gasket in place and two to reinstall the window assembly. To put the door back on the hinges, I pulled them out from the door at a 45-degree angle (takes some effort), put screwdrivers through holes in the hinges, and guided (with help) the door back on.

The lower heating element stopped working.

The heating element is held in place by two phillips screws which were rusted fairly tight, visible at the back of the oven. I tapped my screwdriver with a hammer as I loosened them. (I would have used liquid wrench if the hammer did not work) Two wires are fastened to the element by two clips that you can slide off by hand. Slip the wires off the old element and onto the new element and install the two screws and you are done.

Easy as pie to do this repair. You first remove the 2 screws holding the element in. Then you carefully pull out the element and remove the wire clips at the ends. Just reverse the process with the new part.

By the way, I ordered my part from parts select on a Friday afternoon and it was on my doorstep Saturday morning..... and this was with regular delivery!
I would buy again in a heartbeat from parts select.

I pulled off the facia from the microwave/oven. Unscrewed the plate holding the microwave and slid out the microwave. The microwave and oven are a unit. I unscrewed the oven from the hole it sits in and slid out the oven and set it on a sturdy chair. Then I unscrewed (6 screws) the bracket that holds the microwave to the oven. After that I unscrewed (14 screws) the top sheetmetal plate on the oven and slid that around behind the oven. Then I unscrewed the grounding strap inside. Did the 2 screws on each side of the oven holding the fan unit and slid that out. Undid the 2 wires plugged into the motor and the 2 screws holding the fan motor. Then I slid off the fan from the old motor and slid it onto the new motor and reversed the whole process.

I removed the bad element - two screws, and tested it on my meter as recommended. The test meter showed it was bad, so I ordered a replacement element from PartSelect. I did check getting a part from a local dealer, and it would have been $10 more. The help and recommendations I recieved on the PartSelect repair forum make it easy.

Removed the original element with a screwdriver and disconnected the 2 wires, it took about 2 minutes. Got online with PartSelect and easily matched a replacement part. Ordered the part and received it within a couple of days. Very impressed with the ease and quickness of the order processing and shipping. Took the new element and connected the wires, screwed the 2 screws back in, it took about 2 minutes. Turned on the oven to check and everything worked perfectly. Very happy with the overall experience with PartSelect. Thanks!

Oven failed to heat

First, I tripped the oven circuit breaker. Then I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. Then I pulled the element out about 5 inches and disconnected the two wires. At first, I had to figure out how the wires would disconnect. Once I removed the heating element, I reversed the procedure, tightened the screws, reset the circuit breaker, and set the oven to bake. The element began to function, and I knew Imy efforts were successful.

Oven would not heat

I opened the oven door and unscrewed the two screws that connected the element to the back of the oven. I then pulled the element forward but it would not expose the electrical connections that powered it. I pulled a little harder and it would not pull through the insulation. I then decided that it must be accessable from the back. I took off the door the lighten the oven. I pulled the oven out of the cabinet till the conduit was taught and I could just barely see that there wasn't a panel to access the connection. I then put the back into the cabinet and pulled a little harder yet on the element and the connecters pull through the insulation. I was then able to test the element with the multimeter and decide the power was getting to the element but no heat. I ordered the part the next day. Recieved it the day after that, smokin' fast service I must add. Installed the element and it works like a new one. My wife loved it and then she loved me.

I removed one screw easily. The other screw was difficult to remove without stripping it. I sprayed WD 40 and let it sit overnight. The next day, my husband sprayed it again and after trying several different size Phillips screwdrivers, he got the second screw out. He easily removed the element and then the two wires from it. He attached the two wires and replaced the screws. We tested it and it worked. The best part is: my husband scrubbed the oven before putting all the parts back!
