I opened the lid, and found that the terminal blocks were burnt, the wires were melted. I ordered one set of terminal block to replace the burnt one, and it worked. Before I started, I shut off the electricity in the whole house to be safe.

Surface burner coil did not work.

TURN OFF ALL POWER TO KITCHEN. Took off all burner coils and plates below them. Lift hood. Locate part. Remove old part and replace with new part in same way as was previously installed. The wire that comes with the kit is actually too much wire, but just arrange it the best you can and leave it....no big deal. I didn't have a magnet, but needed one. The wire from burner coil to switch runs through a harness which is screwed on to the body of the oven (below the range). Be careful NOT to drop it behind oven when taking it out. I dropped it and took forever to get it. That turned a 20 minuate job into an hour and a half. Otherwise this is an easy job that anyone can do. Refrigerator compressor is next. Have fun.

Have tried 3 different store-bought drip pan sets over the past year. None of them laid flat.

I removed power from the oven, then removed the 2 screws in the back of the oven that hold the element in place. I pulled the element out a little bit and disconnected the two wires. I connected the new element to the two wires, and screwed the two screws in the back. I then restored power and tested the oven - it worked great!

I ordered the wrong part to start with. (READ CAREFULLY!) I reordered the correct part and it was simple. I unpluged the old element, plugged in the new one replaced the drip pan and trim ring and we were back cooking.
Service was fast, lady I spoke with on the phone to exchange parts was knowegable and nice. Great people to deal with.

Pulled out the burner. Just pulled and out it came. Looked you up online. Crawled around on the floor trying to find the model number. (This was the hardest part of the whole process.) Ordered the part; it came the very next day despite the fact that I didn't order special shipping. Unpacked the part, plugged it in. And it worked!!!!

FABULOUS service. Thank you so much.

Threw away old drip bowls, cleaned the top of the range, put on new bowls! So easy, a cave man could do it! All kidding aside, took knobs off and soaked them in hot soapy water for a while, cleaned part of stove behind knobs, cleaned under the burners, put it all back together, and while it doesn't look a new stove because it's at least 20 yrs old, looks 100% better. I think I can live with it for a while until I get brave enough to remodel my kitchen. Soooooo scary.....
