It is critical that the power be turned off AND the oven unplugged for safety. This should also be included as a big warning note in the element packaging. This repair is extremely unsafe if power is not disconnected. In my case the plug was accessible by removing the warming drawer. Once power is off, simply remove two 1/4" screws with nut driver and pull the element out slightly to access connectors. Disconnect, while not allowing wires to fall back through holes at rear of oven. Connect new element and slide back into place, replace screws. I also replaced a broken warming drawer slide while I was at it, it just snaps into place.

Disconnected the heating element from oven box (nutdriver), pulling element outward toward the oven door to expose the element's push-on electrical terminals for voltage measurement. Used paper to insulate terminals from oven box while setting oven to "bake." Determined that electrical power (230 VAC) was present; then switched off oven and double checked the element itself was open circuit by measuring continuity with one terminal disconnected. (Violated all kinds of safety rules!) Temporarily reinstalled the bad element to maintain safe condition while waiting for replacement element. Be careful with delicate push-on terminals to avoid connectors coming off wires.

Unplug the range, pull the knob off the front. Remove the screws from the cover plate behind the switch and remove the cover plate. Carefully pull one wire at a time off of the old switch noting the markings: "L1," "L2," "H1," etc., as the wire position may be different on the new switch. Put each wire onto the new switch as they are removed from the old one. Let the new switch hang from the wires while removing the 2 Phillips head screws from the front of the old switch and remove the switch. Hold the new one in place, start both screws, & then tighten them. Push the knob on the new switch. Plug the range in and try it. If everything works, install the rear panel and screws. I think that it took me longer to type this than it did to actually do the job.

Removed the heating element to prevent possible fire while waiting on the parts. Three nut-driver screws removed the back cover. Removed each of four wires and attached to new burner switch, one-at-a-time to prevent any screwups with reconnecting the switch. Unscrewed the old switch, Screwed in the new switch to the front panel. Replaced the back panel and *poof*, good as new. Took as long to repair as it did to write this description.

PULLED THE STOVE AWAY FROM THE WALL, DISCONNECTED THE POWER CABLE, REMOVED THE TOP PART OF THE BACK WHERE THE SWITCH WAS. IN FRONT THERE ARE TWO SCREWS THAT ARE PHILIP HEADS THAT HOLD THE THE SWITCH IN PLACE. BE CAREFUL WHEN REPLACING THE WIRES. WHEN YOU TAKE ONE WIRE OFF, PLACE IT ON THE NEW SWITCH IN THE THE SAME POSITION. THE SWITCH CAN BE PUT BACK, BUT BE CAREFUL OF THE ANGLE, BECAUSE IT HAS FOUR SCREW HOLES. REPLACE THE SWITCH, REPLACE THE BACK, PLUG THE POWER CABLE IN, AND PUSH THE STOVE BACK TO IT'S ORIGINAL POSITION. MAKE SURE THERE ISN'T ANYTHING ON THE BURNER WHEN YOU TEST THE SWITCH.

Statistics said it was the element. I replaced that this did not correct problem. Went with the second statistic and it was correct. I showed the video to my tenant and he replaced it and called me in a few minutes saying it worked fine. Look at the video then it will be easy for you. The only thing in the video that was not clear is that you have to peel the sticker off of the front of the old clock and attach it to the new one. Everything else is exactly like it says.

Removed bottom drawer. Pulled Range out away from the wall. Unplugged Range. Removed 6 screws from top back cover. Removed top back cover to reveal the Infinite Switches behind the knobs. Pulled the knobs off of the Switches I wanted to change. Removed the 2 Phillips Head screws holding each switch. Pulled the wires off of the old Infinite Switch and put them on the new Infinite Switch. I was careful to put each wire on the correct terminal from old to new switch. I then reassembled the Range in reverse order. I changed both 8" Burner Infinite Switches. I was only having trouble with 1 switch. But, upon inspection. Both Switches had burn marks on the top left of the switch.

My husband and I pulled the stove away from the wall and unplugged it. We felt it was safer to unplug the stove rather than turn off the breaker. My husband disconnected the baking element and checked the lead wires coming into the oven to see if they were damaged but they were not. He fitted the new baking element to the lead wires and tightened the screws on each side. It was really easy to repair and the video we watched on the internet really helped. As a Mom who bakes a lot, and I wanted to make sure that the oven temp was correct so I tested the temp three different times with my oven thermometer. Each time the oven temp was accurate. Parts Select Service Department was most helpful and I received the part within two days. I highly recommend them and I would use them again.
