  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

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.

Bake element burnt out

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.

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.

Stove top element not working due to bad receptacle.

  • Customer: Richard from Carthage NC
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 84 of 93 people found this instruction helpful
Turned off the power at the breaker box, cut the wires approximately 5 inches from the bad receptacle and removed it after removing one screw. Stripped back the wires about 1/2 inch and attached the new wires with the ceramic wire nuts provided and secured the receptacle back in place with the new screw provided in the kit.
My sister's husband wanted to scrap the whole range but I repaired it with $14.00 worth of parts.
The element is working great now.

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.

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
