Hidden bake element burned out.

  • Customer: Robert from Powell OH
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 83 of 96 people found this instruction helpful
This heating element is accessed from the right side of the range. The parts drawings are misleading, making you think that it can be accessed from below -- not so!

Remove the right side panel from the range by removing screws on back edge, and bottom center on the inside. Slide the panel forward to release from tabs on the front edge, then pull out and off.

Separate the insulation that hides the terminals and access cover for the element., then remove one screw at the rear edge of this panel, and slide it toward the rear, then pull out.

Before disassembling the side, you can check to verify that the element is burned out by removing the rear panel and doing a continuity check on the wires leading to this element from the rear of the range. The wires on my range were a salmon or pink color with high temperature insulation.

Oven not heating

  • Customer: Neil from Flemington NJ
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 64 of 76 people found this instruction helpful
Before you begin,some notes:

1. The wiring diagram on the rear of the oven incorrectly shows a bi-metal element in the L2 side of the oven heating element circuit. There is no bi-metal element in the circuit.
2. There is a fast blow 20 Amp fuse with radial leads in the L2 side of the oven heating element circuit which is NOT shown on the oven wiring diagram on the rear of the oven. If you have a malfunctioning heating element this fuse is probably blown and you will need to replace it by removing the rear panel from the oven. The fuse is located toward the bottom, is shrink-wrapped and contained within a wire bundle.
3. The wiring diagram in the manual shows neither the fuse or the bi-metal element.

To replace the lower heating element (aka the hidden element)
Disconnect power to the oven.
Remove oven from it's location to gain access to the right side panel.
Remove three screws holding the right side panel in place and remove panel
Disconnect both wires connected to the element terminals.
Carefully pull back fiberglass insulation to reveal element holding bracket.
Remove one screw holding the element bracket in place and remove both element and bracket.

Installation is the reverse of these steps but make sure you replace the fiberglass insulation correctly or you will experience problems with heat transfer and a possible hot-spot on the side of the oven.

The quality of this KitchenAid oven is very bad. The parts are cheap and not well finished. No thought has been given to serviceability and the product's documentation is defective. The entire device has been designed for low-cost production and not for reliability or longevity. It is easy to see this when you study the documents and take the device apart. The morel of the story is: don't spend extra money on a KitchenAid oven because a less expensive brand will probably be of equal or better quality of design and/or parts quality. Access to the lower heating element could easily have been designed for front or rear removal. A service technician would charge around $250-$300 to perform this repair including parts.

Inside door glass broke

  • Customer: MANNY from LIVERMORE CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 60 of 68 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the oven door by lifting it off with the hinges. Disassembled the door parts one at time making sure I remember where I removed the screws until I am able to get to the broken glass. The most difficult part is making sure that the insulation strip & the gasket stayed in place after I replaced the broken glass & doing the reverse process of installing the parts together. Relatively easy process as long as you remember where the parts go. When in doubt, I had to refer to the pictorial of the disassembled door shown on your website.

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 14 of 16 people found this instruction helpful
First of all, I shut off the electricity to the stove.

I had to remove the two screws holding the stovetop in place. I then lifted it up and braced it to keep it from falling, removed the bad element, carefully marking the 4 wires that were connected to the element. I then disconnected the wires, and removed the two brackets holding the element in place. I replaced it with the new element, reconnected the wires, returned the stovetop to it's original place, put the two stovetop screws in, and turned on the electricity. Then I turned on the element, and it works just fine.

Hinges were broken

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 15 of 21 people found this instruction helpful
Take the door off the oven by sliding out the old hinges that hold the door on to the oven. Put the door up on a protected table so that the hinges can hang down and free of the table. This step will make the job go much more simple. Proceed by removing all visable screws. Make a mental note on how the old hinges are held in and how the door comes apart. Take your time this is not a hard task! I am a homemaker, was taking care of my grandson that day and still accomplished the task in under an hour. The repair people wanted $145.00 labor only to install this part!

This product comes in a bottle with a brush like Liquid Paper. It goes on incredibly easy. A second coat might be needed. I wanted to prevent rust from setting in so I covered the scratches and dings. The paint is a little brighter since my washer is 10 years old but it still looks great.

inside glass broke due to oversize pan

  • Customer: Robert from Las Vegas NV
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 11 of 13 people found this instruction helpful
After reading all who did a simular repair, I was better prepaired for what to expect before my wife and I bagan to take apart the oven door. It may help or hinder if you had extra help. At least two people and no wittnesses for intertainment.
Consider paying to have it done if your not willing to attempt to repair the oven door glass from this poorly designed door and its componets.

I wish we had a video camera to record the repair due to all the steps involved.
For the most part, all internal parts float together and only the most inside sheet of glass is screwed down.
You will need a work table to place the door on, scewdrivers, penatrent spray, cleaning solution and rags or towels.
After removing the door from the stove, just by opening the door slightly and lifting upward evenly, the door will come off the stove with its hinges attached.
With the door front facing up, and handle off the work table so door lays flat, we removed the screws along the bottom of the door.
With the screws removed, the bottom strip comes off. A strip on each side may now drop off.
This will allow you to lift the bottom end of the panel just enough to detach it from the clips that hold it on the top end. Theres one on each side.
The 2 fixed clips go inside slots of the door panel.
It may take a little tugging back and forth, up and down to remove the panel.
There are side strips by now will come off now too.
Once this panel is out of the way, you can remove each piece. Remember the order and record if you can.
The glass that was broke is secured by screws that may require some spray penatrant to loosen.

Make sure you use a perfectly fitting screwdriver as to not strip out the screw heads.

Carefully remove all broken pieces of glass than vacuum the surrounding area.
Clean all glass panels with glass cleaner and paper towels or newspaper.

With the heat gasket in its proper place, install trim with a new glass panel and return each piece in the order you removed them.

Make sure everything is returned to its proper position before you re attach the inside door panel. It may require a little effort to align everything together to accomplish this.

Return the door to the oven by inserting the door hindges into the door slots and you are done!

Sit down, have a cocktail and ask yourself if it was worth the trouble. I thought it was.

  • 13 of 20 people found this instruction helpful
First discount Ac from wall, then take out 2 screws on the front of the range top and lift up the top of the range surface, then while holding up the surface top take out the front burner and replaced new burner element.Let the surface top down and screw in the two screws. the surface top of the range is hinged so it would be good to have someone to hold the top up while you replace the element or use a piece of wood to hold it up,this is a piece of cake to repair. would like to thank parts select for their service. I have ordered from them before and they back up their products
