First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires to remove the old sensor. Went on line to find out where to order it from. Ordered it, It was on back order but was only about 1 week to receive. Reversed the procedure. WA LA. It works great.

I had some confusion about the correct series number associated with my stove and called Partselect. They confirmed the part I was looking at was correct in less than 5 minutes. I then completed the order online. Even with standard shipping my order was processed immediately and I received the heating element the next day.

Turned off the breaker. Removed the two screws in the front holding the range top down. Loosened the screws holding the element in place while balancing the range top with my shoulder. Removed the wires from the older element one at a time and attached them to the new element. Put the new element in place and screwed back in place. If I had a little help with the range top I think I could have completed it in 5 minutes but I was at home alone and the other stories of doing this repair made it seem easy enough and it was.

After carefully removing the broken glass and cleaning the surfaces, I unscrewed the three screws holding the bottom metal panel using a Philips head screw driver. After replacing the existing double sided tape strips the replacement glass panel was evenly slid upwardly into place. The glass panel was held temporarily in place until the bottom metal bracket was slid upwardly into place and fastened into place by tightening the three Phillips head screws.

I ordered the door glass from Part Select, which arrived quickly and in good condition. I loosened two sets of screws under the bottom glass holder frame, removed three screws at the top of the door to give more room. Slid the glass in place, re-installed and tightened the screws.The stove door looks great and works great. Great customer service too.

After self cleaning the oven received an error code telling me the sensor was bad.

Removed the two screws holding the element in place. I then pulled the element and wiring out until I saw the connecter. I disconnected the two wires and then chose the correct connector from the package, snapped it back into place, put the screws back, turned on the breaker then tested the oven and found that everything was working correctly.
This is the second time I have ordered from Part Select, the first time was for a front LED panel on the same appliance. With the help finding the part you need and the comments from other customers I have saved a lot of money by repairing these problems myself. Oh, and the best part is the look on my husband's face when he came home and found out the repairs were made by me and not a repairman that he said I should call. He said he would laugh when the first repair by me didn't work but who's laughing now : )

Burned out Heating Element

  • Customer: Daniel from Fort Mill SC
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 7 of 9 people found this instruction helpful
First I turned off the breaker for the oven. Next I pulled the oven out so I could access the back of the oven. Then I removed the back of the oven so that the connections for the heating element were exposed. I disconnected the wires from the element and then went back to the front of the oven. I removed the plate over the heating element (2 screws in the back) and then removed the screws that were holding the element in place. I pulled out the heating element and then put the new one in. Finally I hooked up the element to the electrical supply and then put everything back together. Don't forget to turn the breaker back on!
