I (a woman) unplugged the stove, took out the screws, and unhooked the baking element. I then replaced the old screws with the newer ones, and made sure everything was nice and tight. I was a little nervous at first but everything turned out okay. I plugged the stove back up & the baking element was a bright orange and it works better than ever. The whole process took about 15-20 minutes.

First job was power off! Next step was to remove the two screws holding the element to rear wall of oven. Next is was to gently pull the wires through the hole as far as possible. At this point I needed pliers to stabilize the joint while I removed the two screws of the electrical connection. Now it was easy to clean the oven to remove arc residue. Now it was a matter of reassemble. Hardest point was getting the screws started in the electrical connections without cross threading while reaching in over the door. Use pliers to ensure you don't bend the connection wires on the element. Finally remount the element with the two original screws. This was the second element to fail. Last time I removed the oven door for better access. I think it was quicker with door on but a lot more bending and reaching.

remove/replace baking element. Relatively simple to do; however, I used the old screws/nuts as they worked better than the new ones which were included.

we of course turned off the power. the box wrench loosened the nuts. the part fit easily in our 30 year old oven. It was easy to attach the leads to the heating element--a bit awkward, but we finished the job in 20 minutes. At first, the new element looked different from the old one, but it fit perfectly. The oven is as good as "new" needs cleaning!

Took out the old (removed 2 screws holding the element to the back of the oven, disconnected the 2 screws attaching the electrical wires to the element). Decided to clean the oven with EasyOff. It took longer to spray this on, and then later wipe it up, than the repair itself. Reversed the procedure for the new element. A very simple repair - my wife is amazed!

I have to admit that I tried to remove the element myself but I did not have the right tool for the last two screws. If I did it would have been very easy. I ordered the part and had someone else put it in so I cheated.

Flipped the breaker, checked that there wasnt power. Unscrewed the 2 screws holding the bake to the back wall of oven. Used nut driver to unhook bake from electical leads. Used new screws from new bake to attach to leads. Mounted bake with original screws to back wall oven.

Replace cracked broiler element

Unplugged Stove, pulled away from wall. With smaller wrenches, took the two screw-nuts off the inside back and above that hold the broiler element in place. Since it is an older stove...took the back panel off the stove with philips screw-driver which consisted of 10 screws. Once that was removed was able to unscrew the broiler element from the two wires that provide the electricity. Used the flash light when I had to unfasten the screw-nuts inside the stove because kitchen lighting wasn't strong enough.

Bake element in oven would not heat.

  • Customer: Bill from S. Glastonbury CT
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Turn off circuit breaker. Release bake element from back of oven with a phillips head screwdriver. Remove bake element from heating wires with an adjustable wrench. 1/4 nutdriver was a little to big large for the old screw. Do not allow wires to fall back into the installation. Reverse the procedures for installing the new bake element. Most difficult part of the repair is having old eyes and not being able to focus on the work site which is about 12- 14 inches from your eyes. Young people with good eyes no problem. Oven heats like a new unit.

having read instructions from previous PartSelect users it was a snap. Nutdriveer, and screw driver were the only tools needed. This was a wall oven and the most difficulty I had was getting to the nuts with the door open. I really didn't want to take off the door.

Removed bake element by taking out the screws of the element plate at the back of the oven. Pulled out the bake element and disconnected the two electrical wires attached to the element by screws. Screwed on the new element and reattached the back plate. The light bulbs (upper and lower oven) were replaced by pulling up on the wire holding the light bulb protective glass enclosure in place, removing the enclosure and then unscrewing the light bulb. Then screwing in the new bulb and re-attaching the glass enclosure.
