Although I had a general idea of what to do, I watched a video on this website; it ensured me that I could repair this. Over all I spent 30 minutes repairing the oven, but 15 minutes of that was spent trying to find the right tool. I didn't have a screw driver with a square head, so I ended up putting a square bit in my electric drill. This WAS A VERY EASY REPAIR. On the video, the repairman took less than 3 minutes, but that was optimum. All you do is (1) make sure the breaker is off; (2) remove the bad element by taking two screws out at the back of the oven; (3) disconnect the wires coming from the oven; (4) hook the same terminals up to the new element; (5) push the wires back inside the oven body; (6) insert the screws into the holes on the new element; (7) tighten the screws to the oven body and YOU ARE THROUGH. THAT EASY!

Either disconnect power plug or shut off breaker to oven. Remove racks from oven. Remove the two screws from back of oven that hold element. CAREFULLY pull the ends of element from back of oven so as not to loose the connected wires. Disconnect wires from element terminals. (Be careful not to allow the wires to fall into the backside of oven) Reattach wires to the new element, carefully insert through the holes and reinstall screws.

Safety first. Turn the breaker off. This repair is so easy. Remove the two screws at the back of the oven. The heating element will pull out about 2 inches. Disconnect the heating element from the terminals. Plug the new heating element back in. Reinstall the screws. Turn the breaker back on. Your finished. This repair probably saved me $100.00 for a service call and parts.

I followed the video,that was offered and it was a snap. Used my nut screw driver and removed the screws pulled the element forward . Then removed the wire clips one by one,and coiled the wires so they wouldn't retract into the back. Connected the wire clips to the element and pushed them back into the open area . Screwed the nuts crews back into place . Set the oven to bake and watched the element turn a red glow . Completed ! I saved the elderly couple money on a new stove or expense from a service call. There cost just the cost of the element and a cup of coffee. My cost none just satisfaction helping an elderly couple.

My burner would stay on high regardless of where it was set.

We removed the back of the stove, unscrewed switch from the stove face and unplugged the wires from the old switch. The new switch was universal so I had to follow the numbers by the prong on the old switch to determine which was the correct prong to plug the wires, plugged them in, screwed the switch back to the stove face and replaced the back Viola all fixed.

I watched the video on your site before I purchased the replacement part, sure that it seemed simple enough to replace. Overall it was smooth and easy, the only difficult part was loosening the screws to remove the old element. On another site someone said to use clothes pins to keep the wires from slipping back inside while you did the replacement, that was a great idea. Thanks for hosting videos showing the repair before a purchase is made, so the purchaser can be sure they can handle the repair themselves!

To find problem. I turn the power off to range. Removed top back panel. Removed switch and found there was a black spot on white covering of switch. So I order a switch. When it came I turn power off to range. Removed the top panel on back of range. Removed one wire at a time and put it on the new switch. Once all wires were on new switch. I removed old switch and installed new one. I then reinstalled the top back panel and turned the power back on. It is really easy to do. If you are not confident enough. Take a picture of the back of range before removing the panel. Then take a picture of the wires before you remove them.

My oven element burnt out.

I ordered the part online using the model number. It came within 5 days. I had watched a video online to see how to do this repair. It was easy. I unplugged the range. I opened the oven door. Use the nut driver to remove the screws in the back of the oven that held the element in place. Once the screws were removed I gently pulled the element forward exposing the wires. I wiggled each fastener from the element. I just clipped on the new element ends to each fastener and screwed it back into the holes in back. Plugged it in and am pre-baking ribs...before I put them on the grill to finish. Yum!

It took longer to unpack the box than it did to install the elements and burners. Sim4ply put them in place and plug in the burners.

oven does not heat

Disconnected the heating element from oven box (nutdriver), pulling element outward toward the oven door to expose the element's push-on electrical terminals for voltage measurement. Used paper to insulate terminals from oven box while setting oven to "bake." Determined that electrical power (230 VAC) was present; then switched off oven and double checked the element itself was open circuit by measuring continuity with one terminal disconnected. (Violated all kinds of safety rules!) Temporarily reinstalled the bad element to maintain safe condition while waiting for replacement element. Be careful with delicate push-on terminals to avoid connectors coming off wires.
