Broken baking (not broiling) element

  • Customer: Sean from Gettysburg PA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

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).

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.

Element burnt through

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.

Burned out heating element

  • Customer: bonnie from apex NC
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
I had to struggle to get the pliers to grab hold of the screw because they were so tight. I was worried about "stripping the screws" but finally they loosened and I got them both out. My friend was holding the flashlight, so that helped. I was not real sure what to do next but the wires popped off the element so it was clear that all I had to do was pop the new one on. Easy. I had the most trouble trying to get the screws out. I saved myself $$$. Thanks for your help in sending the correct part!

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!

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.
