As with all of my orders from Part Select the part was as correct and arrived in a timely manner. The installation was easy. Remove two screws, unplug the old element from the wires, install wires on new element and reinstall the element. Restored power and everything worked fine.
Thanks,

broiler element broken -- rotted

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out disconnected the two wires. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THERE IS HARDLY ANY WIRE TO WORK WITH. Otherwise I would have been finished in ten minutes.

I researched the part number from partselect.com, ordered it and in less than a week (even in all the snow!) I had my part. Fifteen minutes later, my wife was broiling dinner! I repaired my broiler element without waiting on a repairman and for less than $50.00!

removed two screws holding the element in place, pulled old element out enough to remove wires that are attached with flag terminals. Installation was in reverse. Turned the oven on and cooked some biscuits. The element that I received from PartSelect was a perfect match.

Lower Oven Bake Element Burned Out

  • Customer: Kay from Roswell GA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I should note that my first order to PartsSelect.com
was made on-line and that I selected the wrong part by comparing the burned-out element to the web site picture. When I received that part, I phoned and quickly corrected my mistake, ordered the correct part and obtained return instructions.

With the correct part in hand, I removed the two screws holding the element in place, pulled the element out a short distance to disconnect the two wires and removed the burned-out element. Reversing this procedure I installed the new bake element and completed the job by checking out the oven heating. The hardest part of all this was reaching over the oven door and stretching to unscrew and screw the necessary screws.

Repair was very easy-make sure you shut the electricity off at the breaker box-having the oven control off does not kill the electricty to the element . Removed the screws, pull out the element, disconnected two wires, re-attach to the new element, install the screws.

Ordering and shipment of the part were quick and easy. The price was excellent too. It was the easiest repair we ever had to do to an appliance. After removing the screws that held the element in place and disconnected the part, my husband immediately connected the new part. It took less than 15 minutes.

My husband (a retired tool & die maker) easily removed the old bake element after first turning off the circuit. He cleaned up the burned salt that we had used to try to put the "fire" out but finally just shut down the circuit. Then just as easily istalled the new element. Thanks to your quick service, we were only without the use of the oven for a day and a half!

Broken baking (not broiling) element

  • Customer: Sean from Gettysburg PA
  • Difficulty: Easy

I shut off the power at the circuit breaker. I loosened the screws securing the baking element to the back wall. I then pulled out the baking element toward me and found the wire leads bolted using self-tapping screws to the original element. Since the holes on the mounting tabs did not take the old screws, I had to drill out the holes on the tabs of the replacement element. After securely bolting the leads to either terminal on the element, I had to drill two holes on the back wall for the mounting plate of the new element. Then I used the cordless drill with the Philips bit to drive in stainless steel self-tapping screws (not zip screws) to secure the element to the back wall. I turned on the power at the circuit breaker and reset the clock (mechanical).
