I watched the video intructing the installation of the bake element. The one thing I would suggest is to remove the oven door as this allows someone with a shorter reach to do the repair.

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.

Very easy, clip on connections and two screws to hold it in place.

Bake element burned out. 3d time in ten yrs

  • Customer: Fred from Ballston Lake, NY
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

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.

Removed two screws that attach bake element to rear of oven. Slid off blade type connectors at each end. Slid connectors onto new element. Pushed element into place and reinstalled two screws. Tested. Perfect. Took longer to do this survey than to do the repair! The one day shipping service was a big plus.

baking element quit heating

first I took the opportunity to clean the oven really well, Turned off the electricity at the breaker box, Took out the screw on each side and pulled out to view the clips they were attached to, they came off easily, I attached the new ones pushed in to place and reattached the 2 screws. Easiest thing I've ever done and was so cost effective to do this instead of replacing the stove. Works great!I can't believe it was shipped so quickly. I will be shopping here in the future!!!

#1...love the website where it helped us diagnose our problem. Also the video where it showed us exactly where and what to do. #2 we accessed the rear of range and unplugged. #3 Took back panel off of range to exposed wires and clips of heating bake element. #4- removed old element from the clips to find that one end was FRIED and FRAYED. Like something burned through the clip. 5- We cut and stripped the end of the hot wire, re-attached the new clip to repaired wire. 6 - plugged her back in...turn the oven on to see that the NEw coil heated up wonderfully. BEST part of the story yet....I placed the order via internet on Monday at 3:45 pm. I paid for the standard shipping of $7.95 or 3-7 day delivery. On Tuesday AM....the very next day, I was WOKEN up by my doorbell at 8:05 AM....by the time I got to the door to see who it was...the FED EX truck was pulling out of my driveway. THEREFORE I got overnight delivery without paying for it. AWESOME delivery, service, transaction....and great website and parts!! HIGHLY recommend to all!!!!

Called Sears, repairman couldn't come for a week and would cost $129 for visit not including parts. Went to Sears repair store, part cost more than the part I had already found online and would take a week to arrive. Ordered the part online, paid for next day delivery, watched a video on how to replace. Had my oven back in two days and $59!!!
