Removed the existing dispenser door, took off old spring. Slid new springs on pin, got it situated between the correct parts of the door. Popped it back on the pin inserts. Twisted spring into springing action position, voila. It was repaired. No repairmen. No additional costs, fees, nor extra time waiting on repairmen.

Put blocks under the washer where the leveling leg was needed and screwed the part into the washer. Then it was just a matter of moving the washer into place and leveling. Pretty easy.

This was amazing. First I couldn't believe I could find a part for an over that was 25 years old. Fixing it was just as easy. I read some of the other reviews and it was just as easy as they described. Unscrewed the two plates on the back of the oven, unclipped two pieces and screwed the plates back on. It took me a total of 10-15 minutes, BUT, I couldn't get the door back on. Had to impose on a neighbor to help. Ten minutes to fix the oven and three days to get the door back on! Still worth it. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

Bottom heating element had burned out.

turned off the breaker (240 volts and it was outside, so it took longer than 15 minutes). Removed two screws in the back of the oven, one on each side of the old element, and pulled the old element forward. The wires on the back add some resistance, but they are long enough to pull forward a short distance (3 inches) without damage. Unplugged the old element, plugged in the new element, pushed it into place, and reinstalled the screws. Turned the power back on and it worked! Saved some money for the holidays! DIY para vida!

Recieved the part within 24 hrs after I ordered it which was awesome.
Removed the two screws holding element in place and pulled out to remove old element. Disconnected the wires and removed element. Had to replace the wire ends with slip on ends to match new element. Spent more time at Home Depot looking for $.99 ends and a crimper than it did to do the entire replacement. Reinstalled element with no problem. Worked great.

The original unit burned through and would not work, of course .

After unpacking and checking the unit that was mailed to me, I cleaned the ends of both the connections in the oven and the connections on the part, then plugged them together and screwed the plates in place in the oven. The oven worked immediately and still is working very efficiently. I had no problems at all with the installation.

First, I removed the 2 screws holding the element in place. Next, I pulled the element out abotu 4 inches and disconnected the wires attached to the element. I was able to do one by hand, but the other required needle nosed pliers. (be careful not to pinch the connecting wire). Then I attached the wires to the new element. Lastly, I replaced the 2 screws to hold the new element in place.

The old heating element broke in two!

First I turned off the circuit breaker...just to be safe. I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I was surprised you didn't went new screws, but that was OK. I pulled out the old one, and pulled out the two wires. It was tricky, for me, to pull apart the old wires. Luckily, a friend was braver than I, and just pulled them apart using a little muscle, and easily connected the new wires. I screwed it back in, and it was done! I was really impressed with how quickly it arrived at my door, too.

Old unit was broken.
