50 year old oven bake element died

  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
After staring at the online pictures of possible replacement bake elements, trying to count the number of squares to figure the length and width of available oven bake elements (some of the pics had listed measurement some did not), I settled on a push on element, since there were no matching screw in elements that appeared to come close to the measurements needed. Since it was a push on, I had to drill out the holes a bit more to fit the screws which took some time and finesse. It appears to works and it at least has enabled me to put off my bigger decision of buying a newer oven for a bit.

Used a nut driver and removed to studs and pulled the old element out and disconnected the two wires. Then connected the new element and put the studs back. It was that easy.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and unscrewed the the two screws that connected the wires and element together. I then tried to connect the new element to the wires, but found that the screw holes were smaller than the original holes in the old element and the original screws wouldn't fit. No problem, I then got a cordless drill and found a drill bit a little bigger than the holes, I held the element connector with pliers and made the screw hole a little bigger, same with the other connector. I screwed the screws into the connectors with a socket wrench and then screwed the element back into the holes in the oven, then turned on the oven and it works as good as new.

The old element blew up

Removed both racks, removed two screws holding element in. Removed two screws holding wires on element. Drilled holes in new element where the push-on connectors are attached so I could attach the oven wires to the new element. Attached the wires and screwed the element to the oven. Fit perfectly and the temperature of the oven matches the control knob finally!

Thanks.

Stove has a piece of bottom trim that was rusted out. This is a rental property and the appearance of the stove is important when trying to rent.

Took the trim out of the box, removed the old trim, cleaned up the "guck" left by the old tenant and then screwed in the new piece. VOILA! A NEW LOOKING OVEN. You didn't ask about dealing with your company. THAT'S THE BEST PART. It took less then 10 minutes to speak to someone knowledgeable, figure out the correct model number, locate the part that I needed and place the order. Here comes the most amazing thing: You are in Canada...I am in Pennsylvania. The part arrived 1 day later!! How did you do that? USPS can't even match that service when mailing to my own city. And this was not a Quirk because about a week later, I ordered another part and IT TOO, ARRIVED IN 1 DAY.

You are in my A-List of addresses for anything I need. I can go to you first.

Thanks.
