Broiler element broken, burned and arced about 4in from rear of oven

  • Customer: Noel from Pollock ID
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 2 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
1) Unplugged the electrical cord and removed the oven door (only when easy); and, jockeyed the oven into better working area.
2) Removed about 9 screws holding rear sheetmetal backing plate to disconnect each of 2 electrical wires from the old element.
3) Removed 2 screws holding element to back of oven and 2 screws from small bracket supporting end of element to top of oven.
4) Replacement element was severely damaged. It was at the very bottom of a box 20 by 15 by 15.5 inches high with the large continuous bubble wrap stacked only on top. Each of the wire ends were sharply bent; one almost 180 deg. pointing in the opposite direction, and the other about 120 deg. The element itself was about 4-5 inches out of square. Using two large needlenose pliers I carefully bent each wire back to its proper place. Next I carefully exerted pressure on the element to gradually form it back to as near its correct shape as possible. (Only the inside of the shipping box showed the signs of possible damage.)
5) Installation- The element, from inside the oven, was placed back through the two holes in the rear of the oven and secured with 2 screws.
6) The bracket supporting the front of the element was slid onto the element and attached to the top of the oven.
7) Attached the 2 electrical oven wires to the 2 element wires, making sure there was good clearance to prevent any short circuit, plugged the oven cord in to 230volts, and checked it out with power to the broiler to give myself some confidence that the damaged wires would not quickly break. It seemed to work and I unplugged the oven.
8) Reinstalled the backing plate with the original screws, plugged oven back in, and moved the oven back to its place and replaced its door. It is working and my wife is cooking.

The rubber feet on the stove top grates were missing, so the grate rocked when you put a pan on them. The replacement feet did not easily insert on the grate. We ended up super gluing the feet to the grates to hold them on. We will see if it holds up.

Lower oven lower electric element

  • Customer: Anthony from Crownsville MD
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
It's a straightforward remove and replace with two screws. The lower element is most likely to go with years of baking when bake pans overflow on to the element, It can be checked with an electrical probe for resistance and continuity. If the oven is preheating and the lower element doesn't heat that is definitive. We had it checked under the extended warranty but the tech wasn't thorough enough. The extended warranty is of questional value.

I was washing the top of my stove, and shorted my igniter harness, yow!

  • Difficulty: Easy

  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
When I was cleaning my stove-top, water got down into the igniter switches, and shorted them out. After buying the switch harness from Part select, I had some idea how to install it, but thankfully they had online, step by step instructions. That save me a lot of time and trial and error time. It went in perfectly with their instructions. Thank you very very much for all your help! God Bless!

Waited for my husband to do it, but when he didn't, I tried it. Very simple! Just pulled the old gasket out of the pinch pin holes in the door, then replaced it. Tuck the one end into the hole at the bottom of the door, then match up the little pinch pins on the gasket with the holes in the door - matches up perfectly! Be sure to tuck in each of pinch pins till they sort of "snap" into each hole. Took me 5 minutes, tops. Works great now, no more lost heat around the edge of the door.

bottom element caught on fire, when looked at it, it was broken in two.

Turned off breaker to oven, removed racks, unscrewed the plate holding the element in place, and pulled out the wires a few inches. All easy and fine to this point. Never having done anything like this before, I wasn't sure HOW the element was attached to the wires, so tugged on them a bit, but nothing budged. Got a flashlight (it got dark in there with the upper part of my body in there)looked again, but still couldn't tell. Referred to this site and saw reports of "plug and play", went back and examined the ends more closely on old and new element, realized that they slide straight on and straight off in a "sleeve". Got some pliars and pulled the ends apart. Slid the new end on to one wire, but couldn't get the other one on until I realized I had crushed it a bit with the pliars. Reopened the "sleeve" with a vegetable knife and slid the other end of the element into the "sleeve" at the end of the wire. Then pushed the wires back in and screwed plate on. It took about 23 minutes, and that included time to look up this site and do some reading, jump up to find a flashlight, and jump up and find a pair of pliars. My hubby was out of town for 3 weeks and suggested I wait til he got home--glad I didn't wait.

Igniter switch shorted out and would not stop "clicking"

  • Customer: Steve from Everett WA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
This is not a hard fix but don't believe the stories that say it'll take 15 minutes. Took me a little over an hour to uninstall the part - maybe 30 minutes to put it together again. Easy to intermediate fix.

First - kill the power using the circuit breaker, pull out the range from the wall & shut off the gas line. Unscrew two screws on the underside of the rangetop (open the oven door to access) then remove a couple more on top by the knobs. After that the top will lift up a bit. Then disconnect the 5 gas line fittings on the manifold & the main gas fitting into the manifold. Remove the back panel to unplug the wire connected to the switch. Now pull out the manifold that has the igniter switch on top. That's about it. When you look at the existing part you can easily see how the new part attaches to the manifold.

Install part & put everything back together.

The cost was around $46 total - hard to beat that!

I unscrewed 4 screws. 2 held the element into the back of the oven and 2 held a holding bracket to the top of the oven. I pulled the old element off the two wire brackets coming out of the back wall of the oven. Then I took the new element and reversed the process. Easy.
