I had the part overnighted since Thanksgiving was in two days and we needed to be able to use the oven. I saw a video on the website that instructed how to unplug the stove. Unscrew the baking element from the inside of back wall of oven. Gently pull out the part to where it is attached to wires. Simply pull apart the male part from female parts. Replace the old element with new element and attach it to the pulled out wires. Then gently push back wires inside the back wall of oven. Screw the attachment back in. We then plugged the oven back in. Turned on the oven to about 300 degrees. We put an oven temperature gauge inside and after a time the oven temperature was at 300 degrees and steady. It was fixed. Thanksgiving was on!

replacing broken bottom baking element

the hardest part of this repair was the wait for the element to arrive in the mail - which was in 4 business days - then took 5 to 10 minutes to get to circuit breaker box in garage. That was the longest part of the repair. My husband took the door off the oven after turning the circuit off in the garage. Followed directions from others who made the same repair and it was done in 2 minutes! Super easy - thanks for saving us money during this time of tight budgeting around the holidays! You're a lifesaver!

First I shut off the oven breaker, then I removed the racks and the oven door. I next removed the two retaining screws holding the element in place. I gently pulled the element forward to expose the blade connection. I disconnected the old element, attached the new element, slid it back into place and replaced the retaining screws. I remounted the door and turned the power back on. I did a test run on the oven. It worked perfectly.

Lower Baking Element Broke

I removed the two screws that held the element bracket in place. I then pulled the element out a few inches and disconnected the wires. I then reconnected the wires to the new baking element, pushed the wires back inside the oven and resecured the bracket. NOTE: turn off the power to the oven! I thought that since the oven was not on, I could safely perform this replacement...unfortunately I got zapped.

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.
