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.

6" surface heating coil remained warm when "off"

  • Customer: William C. from Sealy TX
  • Difficulty: Easy

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.

Bake element burned out

  • Customer: David from Jamestown SC
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Actually a very simple repair. Determined that the problem was a burned out bake element since broiler worked fine. Looked up part on-line...diagram on PartsSelect made this very easy.
Ordered part selecting normal shipping (part arrived in 3 days). Repair: 1) turned power off at the breaker box 2) removed baking shelves. 3) removed the two mounting screws holding old bake element in place 4) gently pulled the bake element out of the oven until about two inches of electrical wire were exposed. 5) removed the electrical clips from the old bake element. This required steady wiggle to get them off. 6) attached the electrical clips to appropriate ends of new element ensuring they are well seated 7) pushed electrical wires back into the oven and mounted the element using same two screws. Turning the power back on at the breaker, I then tested the repair. No problems noted...turned oven off and replaced the baking shelves. Baked homed made bread that evening.

Broiler element broken, burned and arced about 4in from rear of oven

  • Customer: Noel from Pollock ID
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 1 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
1) Unplugged the electrical cord and removed the oven door (only when easy); and, jockeyed the oven into better working area.
2) Removed about 9 screws holding rear sheetmetal backing plate to disconnect each of 2 electrical wires from the old element.
3) Removed 2 screws holding element to back of oven and 2 screws from small bracket supporting end of element to top of oven.
4) Replacement element was severely damaged. It was at the very bottom of a box 20 by 15 by 15.5 inches high with the large continuous bubble wrap stacked only on top. Each of the wire ends were sharply bent; one almost 180 deg. pointing in the opposite direction, and the other about 120 deg. The element itself was about 4-5 inches out of square. Using two large needlenose pliers I carefully bent each wire back to its proper place. Next I carefully exerted pressure on the element to gradually form it back to as near its correct shape as possible. (Only the inside of the shipping box showed the signs of possible damage.)
5) Installation- The element, from inside the oven, was placed back through the two holes in the rear of the oven and secured with 2 screws.
6) The bracket supporting the front of the element was slid onto the element and attached to the top of the oven.
7) Attached the 2 electrical oven wires to the 2 element wires, making sure there was good clearance to prevent any short circuit, plugged the oven cord in to 230volts, and checked it out with power to the broiler to give myself some confidence that the damaged wires would not quickly break. It seemed to work and I unplugged the oven.
8) Reinstalled the backing plate with the original screws, plugged oven back in, and moved the oven back to its place and replaced its door. It is working and my wife is cooking.

The process would have been easy except the wiring to the element had a problem. One wire was too short which meant pulling the entire stove assembly out to reroute the wire.The part worked fine; the problem was with initial wiring of stove.
