This wasn't much of a repair -- rather a replacement of a simple abused part. At the same time, PartSelect allowed me to order what I needed after two failed attempts to buy replacements that would fit the range. I'll remember PartSelect if we need parts for other older appliances in the rental units.

baking element was out

  • Customer: (Mrs.) Jimmie from Hillsboro TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I actually had to hire someone to fix the problem. My stove happened to be one of those they describe on the internet where the wires were not long enough to pull out. Had I tried it would have become a major repair job. The repairman had to use needle nose pliers to grab ahold of the wires and get them out far enough. All went well though and he only charged $25.00.

The old element in the oven sparked and broke in 4 pieces.

Went down stairs and turned the breaker for the oven off. Opened the oven door, took a phillips head wrench and took two screws out of the back of the oven that held the element in place. Slowly pulled the old element toward me. It seemed to catch on something in the back of the oven on the other side of the oven wall, so a jiggled the old element a little and it came out towards me with a mechanical connector and a wire attached at both ends of the element. I slipped the connctors off of the element and attached the connectors to the new element. Carefully slide the new element back through the holes and put the screws back in the small plates attached to the element. Went down stairs and turned the breaker back on. Turned oven on and it heated up even quicker than the old element.

Removed the large lower back panel of range (6-8 phillips screws) which holds upper control back panel in place. Removed upper control back panel (2 screws), exposing infinite switch electrical connections. At front face of control panel, removed (pulled off) control knob, exposing 2 phillips screws holding switch in place. (NOTE: A sleeve is on the switch arm or maybe remains inside the control knob). Look for this sleeve. Without it, the knob will NOT seize the switch rotary arm.
Removed each wire connection individually, one at a time, installing it in the proper position on the new switch.
Reverse all procedures to put things back together. A very simple, straight-forward operation.

Remove burner elements. Remove old drip pans. Thoroughly clean stove top under drip pan edges, and under top cover. Install new drip pans. Install burner elements.
I never seem to be able to find the correct replacement drip pans at retail outlets in the quantities I need. Your parts identification, selection and ordering processes were simple and delivery was faster than I hed expected.
Thank you
