Once I saw the gasket that was supplied it was really easy to see how to install it.
A hook on either end of the gasket gave me the clue on how to remove the old one.
Off with the old and on with the new in less than 2 minutes!!
Extremely easy!! Thanks Part Select for having what I needed!

Oven wouldn't heat

First I shut off the circuit breaker for the oven then removed the screws that hold the element in place. The element was pulled out about 3 inches and unscrewed the 2 screws to disconnect the two wires. Upon receipt of the new element, I simply reversed the above process and the oven performed like new. Very easy, very quick and very grateful to have the oven operating again and it was a very inexpensive fix.

Simple repair that was complicated by not being able to remove the oven door, leaving a long reach to the element connections in the back of the oven. Other than the accessibility issue, the repair is easy. Remove two scews, pull the element out about 3 inches to access and unscrew the screws holding the wires to the element. Then reverse the process with the new element. But, because of the long reach, there were alot of dropped screws and cussing.

The replacement was simple. I turned off the power to the oven, took out two nuts holding the element in place, unscrewed the element from the power and finished the job in 10 minutes. The company that we called was going to charge nearly $200 to complete this job. I saved a lot of money by doing it my self.

Bake element was getting old, thin and burning hotter in various spots. Ordered new part. Upon arrival, turned off power in the fuse box, 2 screws removed the old bake element from wall of oven. 2 more screws disconnected the power supply. Installed new part, reconnected all 4 screws and turned power back on. Entire job took 15-30 minutes, extremely easy.

Turned off power to oven and removed screws attaching element to back of oven with a socket wrench. After removing the screws, I pulled element out about six inches and used a screw driver to remove the screws that attached the two electrical wires to the end prongs of the element. After removing old element, I simply reversed the process to install the new element.

First of all I would like to praise PartSelect.
I ordered the part Friday afternoon and it was delivered the next day (Saturday) I couldn't believe it, because I chose the cheapest shipping, probably had something to do with it coming from in state.
First MAKE SURE BREAKER IS OFF, unscrew the old element from the inside of the oven and pulled it out and then unscrew the connection piece,(make sure wires don't fall back through hole once disconnected) re-screwed the new element to the connection pushed it back through the hole and then re-screwed the mount to the inside of the oven. It was that simple by far the easiest home repair I have ever done and I'm a 52 year old women.
Praying before always helps too.

First, I turned of breaker for the appliance. Removed two hex head (1/4") screws that hold element in place at back of oven. Gently pulled element exposing wires connected at base of element by hex head screws. Removed the screws and olf elelemt, placed new element in place, tightened screws, inserted into base and tightned screws for plate that holds element. After turning on the breaker, I set the oven to a low temp so I could feel the heat without burning my hand and was satisfied that the element worked.

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

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.

Oven heat was very uneven.

I removed the screws that held the element in place. This was the most difficult part because clearance was tight between the screws and the element. I gently pulled the element out enough to expose the wire connections. I disconnected the wires and removed the element. Installation was the reverse - connect the wires, re-position the element, re-install the final screws.
