Small burner would not work and could not control heat when large burner was on

I had an electrician do it. The instructions were horrible. He followed the instructions from your web site. The cooktop was not on an island so he could not remove all the screws to release the top so he worked with the top propped up. When he finally got the connections on, the small burner would not work only the large outer burner is working. He went on the computer to see if he could get more information but was unable to find any information.

raising the cook top on to 2x2s, one on each end, allowed me to remove the 9 sheet metal screws that keep the glass top fastened to the box containing all of the heating elements and controls. After removing the control knobs and the glass top, everything was clearly visible. Removing the four screws that hold the control box frame in place allowed me to turn the switches upside down and photograph the placement of all of the wires on the pins. I then transferred the wires from the old switch to what I thought were the corresponding pins on the new switch(the replacement switch has more pins, and they are not located in exactly the same spots as the old switch). When I turned the power back on, the switch turned the burners on, I had heat but the indicator lights didn't work. I turned the breakers back off and rewired according to a previous commentors wiring directions(his model was not exactly the same as mine), the indicators worked but I was back to no heat. I called my son, who has his own commercial electric company,and he looked at my photos from before, the diagram that came with the new switch, and it took him about 15 minutes to reconnect the pins to different wires and when we turned the power back on---both indicators and heating elements worked. It was the dual switch and double indicator that made it more complex to figure out. Nice to have very smart kids.

The instructions were confusing concerning the attachment of the red wires

Trial and error and reading and rereading the instructions.The use of the jumper wire was not detailed enough. Caller a repair man.

Flipped off breaker and removed oven door and pulled built in stove out so the back panel could be removed. Unplugged the sensor then removed the two screws securing the old sensor inside the oven and installed new sensor. Put stove back together and installed back into counter top, re-installed oven door, flipped on the breaker and oven works like new.

The entire "project" took me less than 3 minutes, and required no tools at all! First, the saleswoman over the phone pointed me to the correct product for my problem ($30 less than what I thought I needed), and it arrived at my home within 4 days. Then, it was just a matter of pulling off the old gasket, and snapping the new one in place! Simple!

The old element in the oven sparked and broke in 4 pieces.

Went down stairs and turned the breaker for the oven off. Opened the oven door, took a phillips head wrench and took two screws out of the back of the oven that held the element in place. Slowly pulled the old element toward me. It seemed to catch on something in the back of the oven on the other side of the oven wall, so a jiggled the old element a little and it came out towards me with a mechanical connector and a wire attached at both ends of the element. I slipped the connctors off of the element and attached the connectors to the new element. Carefully slide the new element back through the holes and put the screws back in the small plates attached to the element. Went down stairs and turned the breaker back on. Turned oven on and it heated up even quicker than the old element.

replaced a broken dual burner switch

IMPORTANT WIRE CONNECTIONS: The manufacturer instructions describing where each wire connects is woefully incomplete. There are 6 or 7 wires to connect and only 2 are explained in the instructions. I took several photos of the original switch showing where each of the wires was connected before disconnecting and installing the new switch. If I hadn't taken the photos I would have been completely lost on where each wire connected.

I shut off the breaker in the fuse panel for the range ( recommended)
I had to unscrew the two mounting plates, unclipped two wire connectors.
Reconnected the two wire connectors ( pull off, push on)
Done
Flipped on breaker and was baking in less than 15 minutes.

Lower Baking Element Broke

  • Customer: Kristen from Ham Lake, MN
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the two screws that held the element bracket in place. I then pulled the element out a few inches and disconnected the wires. I then reconnected the wires to the new baking element, pushed the wires back inside the oven and resecured the bracket. NOTE: turn off the power to the oven! I thought that since the oven was not on, I could safely perform this replacement...unfortunately I got zapped.

Downdraft Blower Failure

  • Customer: Steven from Marshfield, MA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Blower motor stopped working and the breaker tripped. Horrible smell! from the somewhere in the oven. Looking at the wiring diagram told me that there was a relay board feeding he motor, but I had no idea where it was, which took a little Internet searching to find it. Finally seeing that it was in the rear I was happy to see that there was enough flexible gas line to pull out the stove enough to check the board, which was fried. I replaced the board and then looked for the reason it smoked and found that the blower motor was shorted (and stank horribly).
It was straighforward to replace, but when I put everything back, NOTHING worked at all - no lights on the control panel, nothing. I then checked the voltage across the terminals and saw 240V and was puzzled until saw that there was no 120V to neutral where the plug connected to the back of the stove. The outlet, however, had 120V to neutral. Since it was a molded plug I thought that was not likey to be a cmmon failure, so after killing th breaker I took off the outlet cover that the stove plugged into and found out that the neutral terminal was intermittent.
The neutral contacts were not grabbing the netral terminal on the plug tightly enough and were a little discolored in one spot. All that moving around of the plug while moving the stove probably moved it just enough not to work at all - that thing was a fire hazard that I'm surprised hadn't been the cause of more damage in a house only 12 years old. Rather than try and clean the termnals and trust bending them to be tighter (and worry about metal fatigue) I spent the $10 so that I could sleep better for a tight new 240V 30A outlet.
Everthing works like a charm now.

Lower bake element burned out.

First off, I ordered the part to be delivered 2-3 business days. I ordered this online on Sunday, so I figured it wouldn't show up until at the earliest on Thursday. We got it on Tuesday. Fantastic. Once I got it I pulled the range out and unplugged it. Next I removed the two screws holding the old element in place with a phillips screw driver. Pulling the old element out carefully I removed the two wires from either end. Next I attached the wired to the new element and screwed in place. Fast and easy! Plugged the range back in and we were cooking.

we removed the back I had my dad help me so he removed the wires while I removed the screws on the inside. When I received the part he also helped me replace it by putting on the wires while I put the screws in. Remember to disconnect from electricity.

First I fliped the curcuit breaker to eleminate power to the stove. Then removed the 2 screws that hold the element in place. Then carefully pull the element out and disconnect. Installed new element to connectors and gently pushed back into the stove housing. Secured with the removed screws and turned back on the curcuit breaker. Turned on the oven and it worked like a charm..

I ordered the part and it came in within 2 days from fedex! Great timing. It took me all of 10 minutes to fix the coil at the bottom of the oven. Fixed the problem and had plenty of time to cook dinner before my husband came home!!
GREAT SERVICE AT THIS SITE! They knew the right part! And the instructions are very simple.

Thank you
