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
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
[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.

The broil element broke.

  • Customer: hollis from Clarksville, MD
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable)

We removed the two very tiny screws that held the plate through which the element was connected to the wiring. It was extremely difficult to do so, because the screws were so tiny. Our socket set did not have such a small attachment, and we had to use an adjustable wrench. Once we accomplished that, we unhooked the old broil element from the wires. At that point, the wires snapped back into the wall. There was almost no slack to pull the wires back out into the oven so that we could hook the new broil element up. It took more than an hour of maneuvering before we were able to get hold of enough of the wires so that we could grab onto each one and hook up the new broil element. One we did that, it was easy to place the broil element back into its brackets.

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.

Parts Select is the only parts place I found on the internet that had what I needed on my first purchase, so when I needed these clips I naturally went back to them. Product was easy to find, price was fine, receipt for payment quick and more importantly receipt of item was super quick. Thanks to the efficiency of this place and my old appliances, I will continue to go to them as needed.

I turned off the electricity to the oven.and removed the door.
I removed the 2 screws with a nut driver holding the element in place, pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires with pliers , clamped the 2 wires together to keep them from falling in the back of liner.
When the new element was received the procedure was reversed. Electricity was restored and the oven works perfectly.

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.

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!
