1. First make sure power is disconnected from appliance. Either by unplugging unit from the receptacle or by turning off the breaker supplying power. 2. Next remove the shelves from oven, to give yourself enough room to work. 3. Next remove the two Phillips screws holding the two brackets, where the bake element goes into the back wall of the oven. 4. Carefully pull the bake element out from the wall of the oven. Just enough to expose the two wire terminals. 5. Using the pliers carefully wiggle the wire clips off of the spade terminals on the bake element. 6. Remove the old bake element. 7. Connect the new bake element to wires. Make sure that terminals have solid connections before inserting the element into the back wall of the oven. 8. Reinstall the bracket retaining screws. 9. Turn power back on and check that oven and the new element is functioning. 10. Let oven heat for about 15 minutes before placing any food in the oven, as there will be a slight odor from the new element. It will diminish quickly. 11. You're done.

Oven would not heat on Back Cycle

The thermocouple was suspect. It should be super easy- two screws, but the wiring harness would not pull through on my oven. I confirmed the procedure with the PartSelect video which is good. The harness was caught and broke so I had to pull the oven out partially to get to the harness. The sensor did check bad on the multimeter (resistance too high- Google it, I did) so I ordered the part. Once the new part was installed the oven still did not function. So I had to get busy with the multimeter and pull the oven again. On the back of my oven near the wire to the bake element is a Hi Limit Switch which cuts off the bake element if the outside of the oven gets above the preset temperature. Mine was cracked and faulty and had to be replaced. The oven works great now.

Before starting, shut off power to the range with the circuit breaker or fuse, or unplug the service cord. The bake element is the lower element. Remove the wire oven shelves for easy access. Using a Philips#2 screwdriver, remove the two screws holding the old element to the rear of the oven. Gently pull the element straight out until you can see the connecting wires come through the holes. These wires are connected to the element with spade clips. Remove the clips by pulling them straight off the old element taking care that they do not fall back into the holes. Put the new element in place, connect the wires to the terminals, and slide the assembly into the holes. Replace the two screws, restore the power and you are done.

Upon receiving the replacement part, I noted that the socket was held in place by simple expanding tabs. TURN OFF POWER TO THE OVEN. Using a right angle pick or similar tool, bend the tabs inward on the existing socket and remove. Disconnect the white, black and green wires. Note which tab is the green tab. Attach the wires to the new socket. Push the new socket into place, aligning the key bump on the socket with he slot in the oven wall opening. Install bulb and diffuser.

Followed directions as supplied. New part did not work, so it must be in the control unit which is no longer available. So time for a new range.

I ordered the part on a Monday morning and I had it on Tuesday. (I used regular shipping) Took out the oven racks and unscrewed the element. I pulled out the element about 4 inches and disconnected the wires, and removed the element. I made sure the wires were not burned and that the connectors looked good. They did. I simply connected the wires to the new element and screwed it back in place.

I installed the new oven sensor but the problem continued. So I ordered a new relay board and installed it. Still no luck. So I pulled the new board back out and started trouble shooting it using my electronic background. I discovered the new board was using a pin for L2 that had no exit on the backplane, so I removed it and installed it where I believed it should go. Reinstalled the power relay board and presto. My oven is working lie a champ. Louis
