I removed the face of the range back. I did not need to remove the three screws in the back like I thought - just the two torx in the front panel. 2) I lifted the clock face assembly out and up. 3) Look at the very simple wiring. Mine had white and red wire coming out of the "power block". 4) I looked at the old circuit board to see which is line and which was neutral. There was no designation. 5) i removed existing wires. 6) I unscrewed the old clock from its moorings, and saved screws. 7) I made sure the up/down orientation of the new clock was the same as the old one. There is an "up" word on the new circuit board, but with the clock upside down, make sure the buttons are correct. BTW, I had to affix the new clockl/timer cover plate onto the replacement clock, using that "up" word on the new circuit board to orient it. 8) I attached the Red wire to the Line connector on the new circuit board, and the White wire to the prong labelled neutral. 9) I used the old screws to secure the new clock to the range back. 19) There was an extension wire included with the new clock. I did not need to use it. 11) I wrestled the clock/timer back into the range itself, using the two torx I removed to secure it. 11) The new buttons on the left (Timer and Clock) are reversed, so now the Timer is the top butting and the bottom now sets the clock. 12) I do not like the feel and action of the new buttons. They are very stiff, and not particularly easy to push.

1. Turned off breaker (Important!) => 2. Removed two (2) metal screws from element mount (1/4" socket or nutdriver) => 3. Pulled element out enough to disconnect wire connections from element (I bent mine up a little to keep them from disappearing back into the holes!) => 4. Connected each wire to new element then re-installed element into position => 5. Re-installed to metal screws (Do not over tighten!) => 6. Turned breaker back on then turned on oven. Element heated up quickly! You may notice a slight smell of something burning when you first turn it on, but that's normal and will fade quickly. Repair completed and $$$ saved!

the original path was from the right front control knob around the back of the range and left side of range,which i dismantaled to install the new wires to the right front burner. When I found them to be to short I had to also dismantal the right side so the wires could be routed there. The new wires worked fine but did take some extra time.

#1 I turned off power to stove. Removed two hex head screws that hold burner in place. Next carefully pulled burner out & disconnected the two electric wires that supply power to burner & hooked the wires to the new burner. Then carefully push new burner into place & install the two hex head screws that hold burner in place. Turn power back on to stove & the stove should be turned on for a short time to let the new oily smell burn off the new burner. Then you are finished & stove is ready to use.

I ordered the new baking element part for my 29 year old Kenmore oven. I followed your video instructions on the site to replace the old part. The step to remove (ie pull) the old part from the wiring was difficult, and I almost gave up on the matter. With some persistence I finally got the old part disconnected, and the remainder of the installation repair was easy. The new baking element part is shaped a little different from the original part, but it appears to work fine and the oven is now fixed. Thank you.

Lower (bake) element burnt out.

Be sure to shut off the breaker because many oven controllers only break one side of the 220 volt circuit. That leaves one of the wires hot to ground. Very dangerous! Remove screws that hold the element in place. Pull the element out far enough to expose the terminal screws. Remove the terminal screws. Connect the wires to the terminals on the new element, slide it in place and attached it with existing screws from the old element.

The lower bake element started sparking while preheating oven. I turned off the over and then could see the bake element had cracked.

I watched the video twice on how to remove the old bake element and replace with the new one. I followed the directions exactly. In fact the first nut driver set I used has a defect in the 1/4" sock and the video was clear that WAS the correct size so I switched to a different socket set and was able to fit it correctly on the top of the bolts that were holding the bake element in place. I would not have had the confidence to try another socket, had I knot had the knowledge from your instructional video. It was VERY helpful. My oven is over 30 years old!! Really!! And the replacement still went smoothly!! Thank you for the educational/informative way you set up your product purchases/website. I would not have attempted to do this repair myself with out this online training. I highly recommend anyone wanting to replace this part watch the video you provide. It is all the info you will need to do the repair.
