First , I have been working on electrical equipment for many years....and I forgot to un plug the unit from the wall. I assumed that if the oven was turned off I could remove the element, WRONG. One of the leads from the cord is wired directly to one lead of the element. When I tried to remove the element it shorted out against the wall of the oven. Then I turned the breaker off, unplugged the stove and finished the repair in about 10 minutes. Always unplug it first!.

Received part very quickly, easy to install, just give yourself enough wire on terminals when you pull them out, I let mine slip into holes they come out of and had to fish it out. EASY job.

Bootom heat element burned out

  • Customer: Lloyd from Fishers, IN
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench (Adjustable)
  • 3 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
First I pull the stove out and unplug it. Than I removed the back cover by using an adjustable wrench. I unplug the element two wires. Then I opened up the oven on the stove and removed the racks and using the adjustable wrench remove the two bolts that mounted the heating elements. Replace with new element secured with bolts and connect the two wires to the heating element and put back on the back plate and plug the unit back into the wall.

When inspecting the back of my oven I noticed the cable had been pushed under (my guess from the mouse I found electrocuted where the power lines come in) and was touching one of the element prongs which burned the covering.

Not counting unplugging it and taking off the 3 back panels of the oven (< 5 min.) It took < 2min. to change out. Unclipped cable in back, unscrewed one screw inside of oven at top between the two elements and pulled cable through to front, reversed to attach new sensor. Buttoned up the back, plugged back in and was good to go.

First I removed the oven drawer. Verified that the support clips would rest correctly on rail, then review installation document with supports to locate alternate location for replacement supports. I did have to personally locate 2 fastners not provided with the supports ot complete installation. After installation, oven drawer opens and closes smoothly.

Oven would not heat.

My stove would not heat. I could see that the bake element had a hole burned through it. Found this website. I was confused about what part I needed so I called the phone number and the girl was very good at locating exactly which element my stove needed after I gave her the stove make and model #. I ordered the part on Thursday afternoon. The part arrived on Saturday afternoon.

The hardest part of fixing it was finding the correct screw driver socket thingy (I'm not a technical person) to get the screws off with. Thankfully my neighbor had what I needed. I pulled my stove out from the wall (primarily because I needed to clean under there) and unplugged it. Unscrewed the screws, pulled the old element out until I could see the wire connections. I used clothes pins to hold the wires from going back into the stove once I unhooked them from the element (another tip I learned on this website) and simple slipped the wire connectors onto the new element, pushed it back into place, put the screws back on, plugged it in and TA DA... was baking a pizza in no time.

Very very VERY easy repair!!!

First I removed the two screws that held the element in place. I then took the plate off the back of the range disconnected the two wires from the element and removed the old element. I then inserted the new element into the oven screwed the nuts back on and hooked the wires on the new element from the back put the plate back up on the back and screwed the nuts back on. It took around 15 minutes to do it all and this was the first time that I have ever done this. It was so easy.

First I removed the screws and popped off the existing element. One of the wires "disappeared" back into the insulation, so I had to remove the back panel of the oven to access that wire and push it back through the opening. Then I attached the new element to the wires and replaced the finishing screws.
