Used a nut driver to remove two hex screws holding element to the back of the oven and then the two hex screws connecting the element to the oven wires. I pulled the element out and reversed the process. I turned the oven on and made sure the element worked.

I removed the screws that held the element in place. This was the most difficult part because clearance was tight between the screws and the element. I gently pulled the element out enough to expose the wire connections. I disconnected the wires and removed the element. Installation was the reverse - connect the wires, re-position the element, re-install the final screws.

Baking element went out

  • Customer: Jacqueline from Dallas TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the two screws that held the element panel on. I removed the lead wires from the element, making sure the wires didn't retract back into the wall. I put the new element in, reconnected the lead wires and put the screws back in. I was concerned that the panel wasn't as long (top to bottom) as the previous one and it barely covered the hole, but it works fine. It would have cost me $60 to have it done by my home warranty company so I saved almost half.

The bake element exploded and I thought I would need a new oven.

My husband removed the old element by shutting down the power, then unscrewing the element. Then he screwed in the new element and turned oven on for 5 minutes to break it in.

Very simple and so cheap!

First I located the circut breaker to the oven- once no power supply was confirmed (oven light was out) I diconnected the screws that held the old element in place. Pulled the old element forward and disconnected them from the wires. The hardest part was getting onto the oven to reconnect the wires to the new element since the door opens down the work space is a little tight and awkward. Connected new element and replaced screws. Done in less than 20 minutes and no repair service calls to pay!

The replacement was simple. I turned off the power to the oven, took out two nuts holding the element in place, unscrewed the element from the power and finished the job in 10 minutes. The company that we called was going to charge nearly $200 to complete this job. I saved a lot of money by doing it my self.
