Removed old element (two screws) unclipped two wires. Clipped the two wires to the new element (one at each end), reinserted new element, replaced the two screws. Done. Oh, flipped the circuit breaker back on:-)

The old element toasted. Burned-up completely.

I shut the breaker off at the main power box.
In the oven, I loosened two screws to remove the old element (parts now, after the burn-out). I pulled the old element out of the back wall of the oven to expose the wire connections. I detached the simple sliding wire connectors. Done with removal. I waited for the new element to arrive (one week). Installed easily. Turned on the breaker and baked a few potatoes. Very simple.

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.

My husband unscrewed the old element and pulled out the wires and took the old element off and reconnected the new element and screwed it back in in less than five mins. Your video explained how to do it. The service was great. The price was good and it got here fast. I ordered it on Sunday and it was here by Wed.morning.

After buying a 'universal' part at Lowe's and it not fitting correctly and shorting out the burner, I went online and found this source for an exact replacement part. Beside having to disassemble the drop in stove burner two or three times it went well when I had the correct part. I lost one screw somewhere and that delayed me a short time to find a replacement. Thus the 1 to 2 hours. It would have been about a 30 minute job if I had been smarter.

I was able to get on the website, find the part, and order it. It was delivered the next day. I followed the video and it was as easy as the video demonstrated that it was. As a single mother of two, being able to handle this on my own without the expense of hiring a repair person was a huge thrill! Thank You!

  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
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.

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!

I can't believe how easy this was to fix! I amazingly found the part on-line at PartSelect website. I love that you pick part by size, color, etc. I didn't have a part or model number, so this made it super easy! I ordered the part and got it in the mail within 2 days....YEAH! I got my screwdriver out and attached the peice, slid the drawer back in and shazam! it was fixed! Thank you PartSelect and kudos to the person that set up the way you order your parts......awesome! Thanks!

Unscrewed 2 holding brackets. Removed old element. Unfortunately one clip broke off the wire and had to be replaced. Attached clips to element and replaced holding brackets.
Job is simple but working in the oven without damaging the oven door requires a younger back.
Without problems should take ten minutes.
