Unscrewed 2 screws holding terminal ends of the element in place. Eased the element out, until the two AC power wires were exposed. Pulled off the connectors from the element terminals (pretty tight fit - needed pliers to remove one of them).

Slipped the connectors onto the new element terminals, and eased the element back into the oven wall. Secured the element with the two screws removed previously, and that was pretty much all there was to it. Closed the circuit breakers, and the element tested OK.

Overall, a no-sweat job. One thing, though: I squeezed the oven connectors tight before pushing them back onto the new element. They had loosened up somewhat after pulling them off. A tight connection here seems pretty important, as arcing and corrosion could occur over time if they're too loose.

Before you touch anything unplug the range or trip the breaker. Pull the racks out of the oven, it gives more room to work. Remove the two screws that hold the element and pull the element out about 2-3". Disconnect the old element. Before you install the new element check the wire and the connectors for age and heat damage. If the connectors are loose replace them (2 connectors @ $1.97 is better than a short in the oven). If the insulation on the wire is degraded (brittle, flaking, brown) consider changing out the wiring. This means opening up the back of the oven and that is another chapter. In most cases you can just re-connect to the replacement element and attach it back to the oven with the two screws. I ran the oven to 400 degrees to just check that everything was OK. Spent a couple extra minutes to check everything out and save yourself pain later.

Heating Element would not heat up for Baking

Removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires and then replaced the new heating element by connecting the wires and then placing the screws back in. Was a lil difficult because this unit has no oven light and it required a flash light.

The original heating element shorted and caught fire

The repair was simple; I removed just two screws, pulled out the wires, and slipped the two spade connectors off the original element. The repair was simply the reverse of the disassembly. The only thing to remember is to throw the circuit breaker before handling the electrical connectors. Other than that, it couldn't be any more straight forward.

Display blank,oven shuts off,press display comes back

The display would just go blank sitting idle or when using oven, oven and timer would shut off and display go blank. Just pushing on display it would come back. So I replaced the front oven control assy. Not that difficult to replace. But new unit does same thing? Really confusing to me, I'm now waiting the relay control board to replace next along with heat sensor. Again removing wasn't to much trouble, of course Turn Power Off first. 4 screws to remove, kind of work it out away from relay board, remove connectors, plastic lock might break from brittleness, but it won't cause a problem. Remove mounting brackets and put on new assy, repl connectors, work back in to mount. When removing cover mark burner brackets as to FR, RR, FL,RL, the heat shield comes out, remove 4 screws, lower one side raise other and it comes out just fine. That's about it, I'll let you know how the relay board goes when I get it and if it fixed the problem.

First I opened the door to the oven. Then I opened the box that the part came in. (knife) I then slid the oven rack out of the box and unwrapped the plastic, being careful not to bend or scratch the new rack. Now, this is the tricky part... I had to move the existing rack down one space to make room for the new one. Then carefully slid the new rack in, tipping it slightly and sliding it in. LOL

Pulled the oven away from the wall. Removed two screws inside the oven. Pulled old heating element out. When I did I heard a loud pop and and saw smoke. I assumed the element would not be electrically live if the oven was not on. That was obviously incorrect. I pulled the plug and then completed the installation. I went to chruch on Sunday and thanked God that I was not electrocuted. Now the oven works fine. My wife wanted the oven to die so that she could get a new alppliance, Instead I am alive.

Seriously your service was great. Your web site pointed me to the correct part, and it arrived the next day! I would definitely use your service again if I remember your name.

Turned off the power at the breaker box.
