We followed the directions on the video on PartSelect.com. first we turned off the electricity to the oven. Then we removed the oven racks. Then we unscrewed the element from the back of the range, and unhooked the two wires leading into the element, making sure that the wires were long enough not to 'disappear' back into the insulation. Then we took the new element, plugged in the two wires, screwed it back in to the back wall, and that was it! Done. We then turned the electricity back on and turned the oven on to be sure the element was working properly. It was - and we are happy. VERY EASY job with fantastic directions on the online video. Thank you very much!

Removed the oven door (very simple) removed oven racks. Using an ordinary phillips screwdriver removed the two(2) metal screws holding the element. Carefully pulled the element out far enough to disattach the two flat bladed electrical wires, being careful not to let the wires fall back inside the oven wall.Install the new element in the exact reverse order. Even if the two wires should slip back inside the oven wall it would be a simple matter to remove the 6 metal screws holding the rear cover of the range to retrieve the wires.... All told it was a very simple and quick repair job. Best of all there was no repair man fee.

Pull the range out about 10 inches to reach the plug and unplug the stove. Remove the singe screw that holds the cover for the element connections. Slip the spade connectors off the element. then open the oven and remove the 2 philips head screws that are in the cover on the element. Remove the old element, install the new element and re-install the 2 screws in the new cover. Connect the spade connectors to the new element, replace the cover and install the single screw. Plug the oven back into the range plug. Then slide the range back to the original position making sure to line it up with the guide on the floor. The job is complete for the element. To install the new grate feet use an o-ring pick to remove any remaining rubber from the hole and firmly push the grate in to the hole they are tight but they will go in. Job complete.

The difficult part is finding and training the right husband. First, he must be handy and second willing to work on 'honey do' projects. Praise the Lord, I have such a husband. He went on line, found the part needed, ordered it and when it was delivered, fixed the oven. You see he loves his cornbread and muffins, so it was to his advantage to fix it.

The hardest part was deciding if this part would fix the problem. The upper oven became unusable. Both elements worked fine until reaching temperature. The oven would not come back on after that. I took two screws out. Then I pulled the wires out and unsnapped the coupling. The install was reverse. I just snapped the coupling in place and replaced the two screws. All works fine now. Saved a couple thousand as wife was prepared to buy a new one.

spontaneous fiery rupture of element

  • Customer: cindy from boonville, MO
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
After disconnecting the power... I removed the lower racks for clear access to the back of the oven. I used an electric screwdriver to remove the two small screws and then gently pulled the element away from the oven, exposing the connections. Using two pairs of pliers, the connections were separated and the element removed. Installing the new element was simply a reversal of these steps. My biggest concern was that I might break the oven door as I lay on it.

Both elements burned out after considerable use.

This is an instructable for Maytag Range No. JDR8895AAS.
Tools: #2 Phillips head screw driver
Time: Less than 30 minutes total.
Replacement of:
Top Oven Broiler Element (Schematic Item #10 Part Number: PS2342087) and
Bottom Oven Bake element (Schematic Item #2 Part Number: PS2362492).

Item #10:
1. Oven and Stove must be cool and POWER MUST BE OFF TO RANGE. Carefully pull range to access the electrical
plug. Unplug range from electrical outlet. Replacement is done from INSIDE of oven.
2. Open the oven door to the first stop (about 1/4 open). Pull the door straight up and off the hidden hinges.
3. Using a #2 Phillips head screwdriver- From inside the oven, remove the single screw located just below where
each element enters the back (inside) of the oven. (2 screws total) Note the position/orientation of the screw
plates.
4. The element is supported by an "L" shaped slotted bracket. Note the position/orientation of the bracket and
remove the two screws located on each side.
5. The element's prongs project into the back of the oven and have a bit of an angle to their connectors so some
manipulation is required to get them out of their holes. Gently guide the elements out so the connectors and a
few inches of wire are through the holes.
6. Firmly grasp the connector and the element prong and pull apart to disconnect. As the connectors are angled it
is helpful to view them with a flashlight to determine direction of pull.

7. Replace- To replace the element simply reverse steps. Note: Screw plates down and "L" bracket with 'screw
plate facing door.

Item #2:
1. Oven and Stove must be cool and POWER MUST BE OFF TO RANGE. Carefully pull range to access the electrical
plug. Unplug range from electrical outlet. Replacement is done from INSIDE of oven.
2. Open the oven door to the first stop (about 1/4 open).
CAUTION: THIS DOOR IS CONSIDERABLY HEAVIER THAN THE TOP OVEN DOOR.
Pull the door straight up and off the hidden hinges.
3. Using a #2 Phillips head screwdriver- From inside the oven, remove the 2 screws located above the element
where it enters the back of the oven. This element does not have a bracket.
4. The connectors and prongs are straighter so gently pull them and a few inches of wire into the oven area.
5. Firmly grasp the connector and the element prong and pull apart to disconnect.

6. Replace- To replace the element simply reverse steps. There are no position/orientation issues.

Called a repairman who installed the piece of glass as the old piece was difficult to remove. Started project so I could clean the various glass pieces but was happy he came and finished the job. It took him over 30 minutes and like I said I had most of the door apart.
