Replaced clock control by removing surface burner control knobs and plastic nuts, and then the cover over the oven control. Two screw hold the clock in place, after removal and disconnecting the plug-in you can reinstall the new clock control. The Heat Sensor inside the oven will also need to be replaced. It is located inside the oven and attached with two screws; the back of the oven will need to be removed to unplug. Reverse removal procedure and turn the power back on to the stove.

The repair was simple; first I removed the 2 screws from the old element and disconnected the wires and then I inserted the new element reconnected the wires and replaced the screws . The repair was easy and took less that 15 min. The oven works as good as new and I saved alot of money by doing it myself.

Broil element wasn't working...

  • Customer: Kevin from Alexandria VA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 24 of 31 people found this instruction helpful
I pulled my unit out of the wall and noticed that the insulation around the top broiler element was a bit brown. Closer inspection revealed that the element had shorted somehow to the oven itself and caused the element to become non-functional. I tried measuring the resistance first, and it was within typical values for the other elements, but I decided to replace the element anyway.

I ordered from PD and the part arrived just a few days letter by regular shipping. I undid the screws holding in the element, undid the wire connectors and replaced the broken element with the new one. The element worked like a charm and I was back in business for cooking.

lower element burned out

PartsSelect serivce was AMAZING - I ordered online on Sunday afternoon, and the part arrived Tuesday with standard shipping! 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 from the old element, then replaced with new. WARNING - you MUST kill the breaker, because the element is "hot" even when it's off.

Cord was not tightened enough by delivery crew.

PF alarm appeared on display. Noticed clicking when cord was moved. Had arced for some time and melted original block. New part slightly different. Only has 3 lugs, old one had six. Stack using washers provided. Take note of colors before disassembly. Use caution while working through access opening. The edges are sharp. Only tools needed are phillips screwdriver, deep socket for lug nuts. Nut driver optional. Hope this is helpful.

Main top was cracked

  • Customer: Timothy from Enterprise AL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Helps to have another person, but you can do it alone. Starting with the 6 screws under control panel, disassemble the panel entirely. Remove control knobs and twist off the 4 black retaining washers, remove panel. Pull wire harness connections apart. Unscrew 6 screws holding metal plate with the control knob stems and remove. Unhook wire harnesses. Take out all screws holding plastic control panel shell and lift it off. Take out all screws behind it and on 2 brackets underneath on either side.
Now go around sides and back of oven taking out screws near the bottom of the cooktop. Top with pan assembly lifts off. Turn assembly upside down and remove screws holding the metal pan. Remove spring clips holding down all heating elements (you can bend the metal tabs holding the clips to help) and squeeze and remove indicator lights. Transfer all to new top and reverse.
Hints: Check placement of elements carefully on the new top. Use a plastic knife to help bend the new tabs up for the retaining clips. When replacing the metal pan, the front edge of the pan goes outside the bracket of the cooktop, the other 3 sides go inside. When replacing the plastic control panel shell put the top edge and gasket down first then swing the bottom down. Check that it is seated flush over the metal flange along the bottom. Double check all wire connections! They come off easily. Enjoy your new cooktop while it lasts.

FIRST, SHUT OFF the entire CIRCUIT for the range/oven at your breaker panel/fuse box, and verify it is OFF by testing the range/oven. Then...
1) remove range knobs, 2) use flathead screwdriver to unscrew plastic rings beneath knobs, 3) lift up face plate and disconnect oven light switch wires, 4) remove screws for metal plate that knob switches mount to, 5) tilt plate forward and replace each wire onto the new switch, one at a time, being certain to match the markings, 6) remove old switch, by taking out two screws, and put new switch in its place, 7) reassemble everything and your done.

right side hinge on oven door, not pulling door closed tight enough.

Found that the right hinge spring was sprung loose from its stock position. So I replaced both hinges. Remove the oven door, remove the side trim plate from both sides of the oven door. remove inside of the door to reveal the hinges. replaced both hinges, and replace all covers and put door back on.. I replaced both hinges because if one was wore out the other would not be far behind it.

Easier than painting my toenails!! The gasket came out easily just by pulling with my hands. Replacing it with the new one was even simpler. The clips are already attached to the gasket and easily slip into the holes on the door. I used the end of a tupperware orange peeler to push the unfinished ends of the gasket into a slot at the bottom and that was it! A new, perfect seal and it looks and works great!

My inner glass shattered during the cleaning cycle.

I looked online and read what other people had done. The best advice was keeping all the screws in the order they were taken out. I also separated the screws that had come from the top, sides and inner side of the door. This helped immensely as I reassembled the door. I spread out a heavy garbage bag that I cut open. This kept debris and glass off of my kitchen floor. This is NOT a difficult repair; Parts Select said it would take three days to get me the glass; it arrived in TWO! Start to finish, the entire job took just about an hour. I saved myself over $100, and again, this is NOT difficult!

I removed the two screws and then used pliers to pry apart the wiring. I unplugged the connectors and removed the element. The new unit arrived in three days and I plugged it in, replaced the screws and turned the oven on and made a pie! Very Satisfying and easier then I ever thought it would be. We figured we saved $200.00. The service place where we live charges $125.00 to come out and assess and then parts and service on top of that.

my mother blew up the old element. she wanted to tie it for 8 minutes but set it to 800 deg. f. lol:)

searched on the computer for the name and part number that was damaged, found that it was the bake element so i ordered it with part select.com. when it arriver three days later (as expected) i disconnected the gas and electric to the range and simply removed the old element with a phillips screw driver. installed the new element, hooked the gas and electric back up and began cooking again...

thanks partselect..
