  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

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.

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!

Oven wouldn't heat

First I removed the two srews that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about three inches and disconnected the two wires. I attached the wires to the new element and we had our oven working again. I really am happy with the timely service I received from PartSelect and would recommend them to anyone.

Baking element went out

  • Customer: Jacqueline from Dallas TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • 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.

First, I shut off the power to the oven... no point in risking a nice electric shock. The next thing I realized was I could not see anything... enter the flashlight. Then, well then it was really easy. I removed the two screws that held the element to the back wall of the oven, pulled the element (and some of the insulation stuffing) out about 2 inches to reveal the two wires and their connecting screws. Unscrewed them, put the new element in, reconnected the wiring, restuffed the stuffing and reattached it to the oven wall. Turned on the power and she heated up faster than ever. Speaking of fast, my part arrived the day after I ordered it and that was with regular shipping. Thanks fellas.

Heating Element broken

  • Customer: Esther from Fairfax Station VA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
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!

Piece of cake to repair. I took both both heating elements off. I sprayed oven cleaner everywhere to soften the grime. I waited 10 minutes and wiped up the softened baking grime. Installation took 5 minutes for each element and about 15 minutes to clean the oven while both elements were removed.

I remove the back plate, pull out the wires, and unscrew the screws and put the new part. The problem that I had was reaching to the back of the oven to remove the screws. Other than that it was very simple.

Removed two screws that held the element flange onto the back of the oven, then two more little screws that held the element tips to the wires in back. Installed in the reverse sequence in about 10 minutes. A whole lot cheaper than calling a repairman! Thanks, the PartSelect customer service lady was a great help in getting me the right part for a 20 year old oven too.
