Bake element burned out

  • Customer: David from Jamestown SC
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Actually a very simple repair. Determined that the problem was a burned out bake element since broiler worked fine. Looked up part on-line...diagram on PartsSelect made this very easy.
Ordered part selecting normal shipping (part arrived in 3 days). Repair: 1) turned power off at the breaker box 2) removed baking shelves. 3) removed the two mounting screws holding old bake element in place 4) gently pulled the bake element out of the oven until about two inches of electrical wire were exposed. 5) removed the electrical clips from the old bake element. This required steady wiggle to get them off. 6) attached the electrical clips to appropriate ends of new element ensuring they are well seated 7) pushed electrical wires back into the oven and mounted the element using same two screws. Turning the power back on at the breaker, I then tested the repair. No problems noted...turned oven off and replaced the baking shelves. Baked homed made bread that evening.

The "so called" genuine replacement switch is made by Maytag and is different than the Jennair .The shaft coming out of the Maytag switch is flat on only one side, so the knob from the Jennair ( flat on 2 sides) didn't fit. Had to order a knob for a Maytag cooktop , but the new knob doesn't align with the temperature scale on the Jennair. I just added a small white dot on the Maytag knob to indicate proper switch position.

Sparks shot out from under knob, then, no surprise, the burner didn't work

I've ordered parts from you twice now, and both times the service has been absolutely amazing!!!!!

Now, on to how I did this without fire or electrocution:

Turned off breakers.
Grabbed a beer.
Removed two screws holding in plate.
Removed electrical connectors.
Removed two screws holding switch.
Put new switch in place with screws.
Reattached connectors.
Reseated plate & screws.
Turned on power & tested.
Finished beer and felt very manly.

The hardest part was getting the plate to re-seat.

back burn would turn high no mater where you set the control knob.

Well I was just guessing the controll switch was bad so I ordered a new one. So I cut off the power and held the switch close to the old one and changed the wires one at a time matching the connection terminals and cut the power back on and presto it WORKED..The service man wanted to charge me 65.00 dollars just to check it out. I figure I saved about 100.00 dollers plus I learned something.

1. Flipped breaker and confirmed no power at cooktop.
2. Removed the Fan grille and removed the two screws holding on the control panel. It tilts up and out to the rear.
3. Unscrewed the 2 screws on top holding old switch to panel.
4. Disconnected the wiring one lead at a time and connected it to the new switch in the same spot. There are 5 wires total and I carefully used needle nose pliers to remove reluctant wires and to adjust connectors if they were loose on new switch
5. Screwed the new switch onto the panel and screwed the panel back onto the cooktop.
6. Tested new switch...worked great.

Really easy ...followed advice posted from others with same problem. Before anything disconnect the power at the breakers and use a voltage detector to verify there is NO POWER!!!! Only need to remove the two phillips screws on the four controller panel, Slide panel away from you to access the controllers. Match wire/connector for connector from the old to new controller. Reassemble, restore power .. Happy wife!!!. She has been on my case to fix this thing for several years.

The switch would not turn off the range. The switch just kept turning but nothing happened.

I removed two screws that held the switch plate together. Then I removed two screws that held the faulty switch to the swtich plate. I then unpluged one wire at a time from the old switch and pluged it into the new switch. Reattached the switch to the switch plate and then reattached the switch plate to the stovetop. Bingo! Everything worked beautifully. It was so easy and I saved ~ $100.00 by doing it myself, as opposed to a quote that I got from a local repairman.
