First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. I threw away the old pieces.

Then I connected the two wires on the new element. I pushed the wires back in the insulation in the wall of the cabinet. Then I inserted the two screws and tightened them in.

SUPER EASY!!!!!

This $40 part saved me $1500 on a new double wall oven.

Oven heating element blew out

  • Difficulty: Really easy

Removed 2 screws, pulled element out. My husband used an ohmmeter to see if the electricity needed to be turned off. It showed no voltage. He could not remove electrical connectors by hand, so he used insulated pliers. When he touched the connectors, a shower of sparks covered the inside of the oven and tripped the breaker switch. Then we noticed the pliers were welded to the side of the oven. Thankfully the pliers had insulated handles and he was not hurt. It might be a good idea to put in the instructions to TURN OFF POWER TO OVEN in the breaker panel because our oven was definitely HOT. Oven works perfectly now.

The heat sealing strips are elastic type material with hooks on each end. I simply removed the old strips and hooked the new ones in place.
It was easier than I ever dreamed possible!
And my kitchen is now nice and cool.

I used tiny amount of WD40 on old screws,let sit for 2 minutes. Tapped the screws(2) of them with a small hammer to wake them up, I had a cordless drill and they backed right out. Pulled the old element out, used needle nose pliers to pull connectors off of the element(wiggle gently) put the new element on, reinserted back in the oven,attached with new screws that came with the element, started the oven. Worked Perfect!!!

Replacement of broil element in wall oven

  • Customer: David from San Rafael CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 3 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
In principle it should be easy to replace the broil element in the wall oven, after unscrewing the supports for the back and front of the element (see other postings for details). The difficulty is with the ground screw, which is inconveniently only accessible from behind close to the back wall of the oven. A very short phillips screw driver is required, but designed so that good torque can be applied for unscrewing and replacing. The newly designed ground connector on the latest replacement elements makes life a little easier, but still be prepared to work slowly and carefully to complete the replacement. Note the new ground screws supplied only work with a flat-blade screw driver, not a phillips-type.

Element was burned up

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. Clipped the wires back onto new element and used the two stainless screws provided in kit to resecure.

It should be noted that I first called a local Maytag Appliance Co. and inquired about this element. I was told that they would have to order it and it would cost me 68.00 plus tax. I told them I knew what these elements are worth and their price was a gouge. They didn't care. This is a repair that anyone knowing how to work a Phillips screwdriver can perform. Save some money and do-it-yourself.

Thanks Partselect!

The trickiest part was making sure that the correct part was ordered. The first attempt was a failure. The seal was too long and the clips were too big.
After finding the correct part it was a breeze.

The baking element flamed out and broke

Fortunately, we had read the instructions on line, because none were included with the part. Still, it was REALLY easy. We unscrewed the two screws, pulled the element away from the back wall and pulled the wires off the contacts at the back. (That was the hardest part, because they were stuck-on well. WD-40 was helpful here.) The one piece of paper that did arrive with the part told us the ground wire was no longer necessary if you use the new screws that came with the part, so we ended up cutting the ground wire off. We then put the other wires back on the new contacts, pushed it back into place, and re-screwed it to the back wall. We have used the oven several times since, and it's all working well.

The plate is diffrent shape and holes was diffent .
