1. Made sure replacement part matched the defective part. 2. Got the recommended tools. 3. Pulled out range away from wall. Unplugged range. 4. Opened oven door and removed two screws ( with nut driver ) that hold heating element and detached the two wires from the element with pliers. Threw away old element and than connected the two wires ( one to each end of the new heating element ) . Than I use the nut driver to secure the new element with the two screws I removed earlier. Plugged range back in and pushed it back against the wall. Than turned on oven and the oven heated very well. Less than 15 minutes to complete the task.

I went on line and looked up our Model no and serial number of our Frigidaire Range, on Part Select's website, found the part and ordered. Within 3 days the part arrived, and to work on the lower heat element, the two oven racks are removed then I used a small socket set to take the connecting screws out, pull the bake element out of the socket, remove the power cords, then reverse the process install the power cords(just easy slip on) and then reattach the screw, tighten, and put the two over racks back in their place. Turn the oven on and the oven worked beautifully.

The Bake Element burned out and broke

First I unplugged the stove. I used a nut driver to remove the element from the back of the oven. The ends of the element were attached to wires. I pulled the ends of the element out of the wire ends, being careful to hold on to the wires to protect them from breaking. I pushed the wire ends onto the new element, fed the wires back into the back of the oven, put the screws back in and it was done! The repair was very simple. The hard part was cleaning under the stove and the sides of the stove!! :) When I pulled it out to unplug it I found that my children love to sweep things underneath it!! Oh well now I have a working oven AND a clean stove!

Bottom Element burned out

First, I UNPLUGGED the range. After removing the screws that hold the element in I pulled it out, disconnected one side, then tried to disconnect the other side only to find it soldered on. With the diagonal pliers I cut wire next to where the terminal was connected to the element. Using the crimping tool I stripped the end to expose about 1/4 inch of clean wire, twisted it tight, put on a new terminal, crimped it in place and pushed it on the element. After that, all I had to do was push the element back in place and secure it with the screws. The last step was to reconnect the power and turn the oven on low heat for about five minutes to burn off any residue on the element. Works great! Thank you

The Element burned out

I turned the breaker off first of course. Then I removed the oven racks and removed the metal tabs by unscrewing the hex nut with the nut driver. I pulled the wires in to the oven and unsnapped them from the element. I bet them so that they would not go back through the hole. I removed the broken element and snapped in the new element. I pushed the wires back through the holes and lined up the metal tabs. I put the hex nuts back in and screwed them in tight. Turned the breaker back on. Set the oven to 350 and turned it on. I could feel the heat at once. Ta-DA!

Diagnose if element or controller by removing element and turning oven on. Found voltage at wires, so assumed controller OK. Check resistance/continuity of element. Appeared open (don;t what actual value should be (neglected to check new part). So pretty sure it was element. Left disassembled while ordering new part (use of range top ok - no oven use) replaced element, function check OK. Done.
