My mother-in-law called with here oven not working. I went over and got the model number off the stove. Came home and went on the internet and typed in the number on a Google search and came up with your site. It took me to the diagrams of the specific oven and showed me all the parts. When I had selected the part the site also showed me a video of how to replace the part. This gave me confidence to order the part and do the repair myself. First turn off the power at the breaker. Two screws, two clips removed. A little time in cleaning up the dust from a burned out element, then two clip reattached and two screws to secure the element and a test to see that it heats and I was done. Everything went as planned. My Mother-in-law thinks I am wonderful. Thank You Part Select...

Removed the large lower back panel of range (6-8 phillips screws) which holds upper control back panel in place. Removed upper control back panel (2 screws), exposing infinite switch electrical connections. At front face of control panel, removed (pulled off) control knob, exposing 2 phillips screws holding switch in place. (NOTE: A sleeve is on the switch arm or maybe remains inside the control knob). Look for this sleeve. Without it, the knob will NOT seize the switch rotary arm.
Removed each wire connection individually, one at a time, installing it in the proper position on the new switch.
Reverse all procedures to put things back together. A very simple, straight-forward operation.

The hardest part was taking out original light bulb because screws on shield where hard to unscrew after all this years . The old bulb vent out leaving neck in socket. It took narrow electrical pliers to get neck out .The generic appliance bulb did not fit and had aluminum neck ,not recommended for brass sockets in ovens.Putting new light bulb in was not the problem.

the new elements were super easy to replace. the old ones just pulled out and the new ones easily pushed in. the top one was a little more difficult only because it had brackets that had to be slid of and then slid onto the new one.

First my husband turned off the breaker to the oven.
Secondly took the racks out of the oven. Then he re-
moved the two screws that hold the element in place.
He pulled the element out about 3 inches and used
the pliers to disconnect the old element. He plugged
the new element into the wires and checked to make
sure they were snug. Then he put the screws back
in, turned the breaker back on, and turned the oven
on. Presto! The oven is back in business!

Pulled stove well away from wall - took plug out of socket..Phillips screwdriver. Slotted element into wire thing-y - one connector fell down the back, so had to take back off the stove. Used tweezers to pull wire back into back of oven. Screwed plate over wire.Was thrilled when I turned stove on and element shone brightly. Husband away so had to do it myself. Had a glass of wine.
