The original element in the oven burned up one evening

  • Customer: Gwyn from Boulder CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

We pulled the stove out from its slot in our island. We unplugged it and unhooked the gas line so we could get behind it easily. We then took off the back (using screwdriver) to get to the connectors for the element. We unhooked the connectors from the old element. Then we took off the plate inside the back of the oven (using screwdriver)and gently pulled the old element out. We seated the new element in the oven and then hooked it up in the back and put it all back together again. It worked perfectly! The hardest part was cleaning the dirty floor under where the oven had been for 7 years!

An aluminum saucepan had overheated and melted onto the element.

Unplugged the element and the melted on pot. Plugged in the new element. I thought I might need a whole new cooktop but a new element was very easy to find online.

Baking element not working

Bottom oven quit heating about 6 mos. ago and now top oven quit. Broiler worked fine on both. Bought 1 replacement element to try. Did not work on either oven. Found online where someone had found a bad solder joint on a relay board so I pulled the oven and removed the covers. (WITH POWER OFF. I made a diagram of the wire connections to the board and removed it. I FOUND a cold solder joint on the L2 connection of the top oven board. I found the exact same cold solder joint on the bottom oven board also. After resoldering the connections and touching up any suspect joints I replaced the boards. They BOTH WORKED fine!
Anyone that can't solder can take the boards to a local radio/TV repair shop and probably get the techincian to resolder it for a minimum fee. It is certainly worth the attempt.

I went to all of the do-it yourself stores and spent a bunch of money on aftermarket drip pans only to find out that none of them fit. I came up on your website and also called customer service. The found the right part and mailed it too me. They fit perfectly. No more burnt and rusty drip pans. I know where to go for parts now.

After two failed attempts to get the 'correct' drip pans for my range from two other supply outlets, Part Select had the proper drip pans for this model. They fit perfectly! Simple installation and threw away those cheap, poorly fitting replacement pans I've put up with for three years! Thanks Part Select for having the correct parts!!
