After 12 years the element died for the 2nd time We thought about getting a new oven, but ours has become sort of "retro" looking. I think it's from the '60s. We looked on line and found the part at a reasonable price and decided to give it a try.

I first went to the breaker box and shut off the power to the oven.
Then I pulled the 2 screws from the back of the oven that held the element in and pulled off the clips and removed the old element.
My wife decided to give the old oven a good cleaning with a non-fuming cleanser while I went out to play golf.
When I came home she had applied the 2 clips to the new element and fastened it in with the 2 screws. (I love it when women use tools!)
The oven now looks and works like new!

My heating element had been melted through by some type of food and was severed into 2 metal peices. It could no longer be used without dangerous consequences.

I got my part in the mail and FIRSTLY, unplugged the entire stove from the wall. I unscrewed the old part from the front, took the panels off the back, and disconnected the element from the yellow and red wires.I removed the old part completely from the stove. I then put the new part in, reconnected the wires, screwed the part into the oven, then BEFORE putting the back paneling on, I tested it. The new element works like a dream. I then, put the paneling back on & was finished!

BE SURE WHEN YOU BUY TO CHECK WATTAGE OF YOUR OVEN TO YOUR ELEMENT. Voltage doesn't matter because most voltage is the same in any house you live in...

The part came as promised & and it was exactly the right part! I turned off the breaker to the oven (the oven has a clock and timer on it too). Unscrewed the 2 screws with a Phillips screw-driver and carefully removed the old part - being very careful to be safe and not make a big mess. It was easy to disconnect the wires and get the old element out. Then connected the wires to the new element, placed into position, screwed in the 2 screws, and turned on the breaker. It worked great. Then set the clock because it was 13 minutes slow!

Replacing the cup latch and dispenser cover was pretty easy. First, I removed the inside cover of the door of the dishwasher. Then I carefully removed the plastic covers/slides on the door, removed the broken cup latch and then inserted the new one. Replaced the plastic covers/slides, the reinstalled the inside cover on the dishwasher. Next, I removed the dispenser cover and installed the new one. It snaps off/on, by the way.
