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.

Burned out heating element

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!

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.

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.
