I watched the video provided by Part Select before I ordered the part. I removed the old element by taking out two screws and unplugging it from the wires. I put the new element in place, connected the wire to the right side and then opened up the back of the range to connect the left side. The repair was easy, but the video did not show that you had to connect the left side from the rear of the appliance. It was easy to figure out. The appliance works like a charm...no like an oven.

I removed the burner elements for three burners by lifting the surface top and unplugging them. I snapped out the plug sockets that were burned out and cut the two wires, one element at a time. Using the included wire nuts I stripped the ends of the cut wire and connected each wire to one of the wires on the new socket. Once the wires were connected I snapped the sockets in place and reinstalled the elements, lowered the surface top and the range was ready to use.

Oven would not heat reliably due to a partially separated heating element.

I ordered the part on Sunday night and it came on Wednesday. I watched the 'Partselect' video prior to doing the repair - the video got right to the repair and it gave me all the information (and confidence) I needed. It took me longer to clean the bottom of the oven than it did to make the actual repair. I can't imagine paying someone to do such an easy job. My kids had a great time playing with the bubble wrap from the box!

The oven was not heating.

After noticing that our oven was not heating up, we talked to some other people and they said that we should try replacing the heating element. Replacing the heating element was as simple as removing two screws, pulling out the old element, reattaching the new element and putting back the two screws. One mistake I made was not unplugging the range before doing this repair and so I got a little electric shock before I was finished. After getting shocked I did unplug the range before continuing with the repair. The best part is that my oven now works again with no problem. This repair couldn't be any easier.

Not really much of a repair story to tell. While using the oven one evening the baking element began sparking and appeared as someone was using an arc welder inside my oven. I went to the computer and did a search for Magic Chef parts and found the Part Select web site. There I entered the model number of my range which brought up the schematics allowing me to locate the part I needed, the baking element. On that parts page I also found a very short, concise video illustrating "how to" change out the element. I ordered the part and received it rather quickly (a matter of days.) Following the directions on the video I had the baking element swapped out in about the same amount of time as it took in the video. Could not have been any easier.
