Turned off the power at the breaker box, cut the wires approximately 5 inches from the bad receptacle and removed it after removing one screw. Stripped back the wires about 1/2 inch and attached the new wires with the ceramic wire nuts provided and secured the receptacle back in place with the new screw provided in the kit.
My sister's husband wanted to scrap the whole range but I repaired it with $14.00 worth of parts.
The element is working great now.
Whenever I need appliance parts again I'll use partselect.com.

I had put up with a filter that got more and more raggedy every year, but I thought my 30 yr. old range/grill top was too old for me to find an replacement filter. What a great service you offer. I found you by web-surfing, typed in the model #, and presto--you sent me the shiny new filter. All I had to do was pop it in and throw away the nasty grill (after washing the scent off to keep the bears out of my Colorado garbage.) Thank you!

Cleaned out the downdraft cove, inserted the new filter, and put old filter in garbage can. Laughing. Thanks. Wish you had a FAQ's hotline. I'd like to know if the radiant inserts fit the older coil-type models.

After searching on the internet for a very long time, we were almost ready to order the screws "blind" (no picture) from Sears for almost $10.oo per screw. Then I stumbled onto this website and found exactly what I was looking for, with a detailed description AND a picture!! Not to mention a price that was two thirds less than Sears..for TWO screws. Now the oven door is secure and we are no longer on our search for the right screws.

Switches on my range top quit working! Range top is over 20 years old. Local appliance parts store said they could not get parts I needed! What a great feeling I had when I found the parts I needed at PartSelect. I was able to see excellent pictures of the parts, consequently I felt safe ordering

I unplugged the range top power cord. I used a phillips screw driver and crescent wrench to remove the old range top switches. I disconnected the wires from the switches. I reconnected the wires to the new switches and installed the switches into the range top switch panel. This took about one hour. I plugged in the power cord. The range top works great and looks great with the new switches.

I thought, OH NO! I'll have to hunt and likely never find a replacement. I found a grate at Partselect in less than 5 minutes, phoned to reassure myself about the size and fit, the grates arrived very quickly, look and fit perfectly! Efficient, courteous fast service. It doesn't get any better than that.

Replaced receptacle but it was not the problem. After further inspection I believe that the problem is the switch. The switch is on order now from Part Select.
