Replace the heating coil in convection oven

  • Customer: Victoria from San Jose CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

[1] squirted LiquidWrench on the 4 screws holding the convection fanblade rear cover in place. Used a socket and rachet to remove screws; the loosener really helped after 10+ years.

[2] the broken heating element was easy to remove. The two spade connectors however didn't have much free length;these wires wanted to retreat back into the rear oven wall.
[3] So i put a small binder clip from my desk supplies on each spade end, this left the connectors where I could grab them.
[4]I used needle-nose pliers to firmly crimp the the spade connectors onto the new heating element; couldn't have made a firm placement with fingertip pressure alone.
[5] I cleaned the oven door hinge area, oven bulb area, and other hard to reach spots with Simple Green and wipes.

Broken baking (not broiling) element

  • Customer: Sean from Gettysburg PA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
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).

Replaced bake element

Needed to drill two new holes for fastening the element to the oven wall. Change in design. Enlarged the holes in the spade connections since I was unable to find smaller bolts than 4-40.
I would suggest to make the holes in the spade connections larger.
The change out was not a problem.

Heating element in bottom oven burned out

  • Customer: Jim from Arvada CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
First I made sure I turned off the breakers in the circuit box that controlled the circuits for the ovens . Then I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. The factory wrapped a large amount of tape around the connection between the wires and the heating element. That took a while to get off. And I searched for heat-resistant electric tape to replace it (because, it must have served some purpose if they had it on originally). The wires hooked onto the spade connectors for the new elements with no problem. I pushed them back into the hole in the back of the oven, replaced the screws, turned the breakers back on, and it worked great from there on.
