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.

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

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!!!

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...

The burner was shortening out and would work sometime. The first time I replace the burner but the new one shorted out quickly.

I unplugged the stove. Took out the burner and removed receptacle by pulling it out of the bracket and clipping the wires. One thing you want to make sure is that when you clip the wires from the receptacle you're replacing you leave enough wire so that you can connect them to the wires on the new receptacle when it is in place on the stove. I had just enough but would have liked more. The bracket I received didn't match the one on the stove so I used the one on the stove since the receptacle itself was the same as the one I was replacing.

After watching the instruction video on your website, it was a piece of cake. Turned off circuit breaker, removed the old element that was in 2 pieces because of a fire, and installed the new element. Couldn't be easier. Saved a bundle of money.

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!

This is a no brainer. I am only doing this because you asked. Pull out the stove, tilt it back, remove broken leg, install new leg.
