We removed the back of the stove, unscrewed switch from the stove face and unplugged the wires from the old switch. The new switch was universal so I had to follow the numbers by the prong on the old switch to determine which was the correct prong to plug the wires, plugged them in, screwed the switch back to the stove face and replaced the back Viola all fixed.

I watched the video on your site before I purchased the replacement part, sure that it seemed simple enough to replace. Overall it was smooth and easy, the only difficult part was loosening the screws to remove the old element. On another site someone said to use clothes pins to keep the wires from slipping back inside while you did the replacement, that was a great idea. Thanks for hosting videos showing the repair before a purchase is made, so the purchaser can be sure they can handle the repair themselves!

I looked at video and followed the instructions from the man in the video. I pulled out range and then unplugged range from electrical outlet. I removed screws from back and took back off. I then took the two screws out from front of switch. I pulled switch out and then removed one of the wires off and placed it in the same place on the new switch. I did same on the other two wires. I then put switch back in place and tighten the two screws on front. I replaced the back on the range. I plugged range back into the receptacle, pushed range back in place. I put control knob on and then turned it on. The eye worked fine. Very easy!

Quit after getting shocked. New part had different configuration. Hard to see marking for pull and plug from old switch to new switch. New switch had different configuration. After all that and making sure switch worked, got shocked as stove was pushed back to wall. Some other issues with wiring has a shorting out problem. Maybe time to call a pro or get rid of the stove and get the gas stove we have been longing for. Be sure to match points on pulling and plugging as the configuration may be different.

Just plugged it in! The hardest part was finding the model number. It was inside the top of the stove,while cleaning, I found it-on the left hand side when you take out the burner pans. I searched this site, found the part and when it arrived I just plugged it in and it worked fine. I would say less than 5 minutes to fix this issue.

heating element no longer worked

  • Customer: Maryann from Roberts, WI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set

pulled out the range and unplugged the range from the outlet! removed the oven racks. unscrewed the heating element and pulled out the wire connections a bit so i could grasp the connectors better and so they would not go back into the holes. getting the bad element off the connectors was the most difficult part of the process - this is what took the longest for me. I used pliers to grab the heating element connector and wiggle until it came loose from the connectors. once off, it was pretty simple to re-connect the replacement element and tuck everything back and screw the element back onto the oven wall. WA-LA!! back in the baking business - kids and mom are happy again! temp needs calibrating, but should be able to figure that out....thanks much!

A Phillips screwdriver and pliers were all the tools required. At first glance, the physical appearances of the OEM and the replacement were not identical. The slide-on electrical tabs were numbered on each in the same way. Sliding off the connectors and re=connecting them on the same number tab on the new switch was all there was to it.

- Cut the power to the oven (I used breaker). - Unscrew 2 screws. - Disconnect from 2 electric terminals. - Remove old bake element. - Connect new bake element to 2 electric terminals. - Screw the 2 screws back on. - Turn the breaker back on. ------------------------------------------------> Done! . . Saved the $79 that the appliance guy would've charged just for diagnostics. The part shipped to me within 24 hours so I didn't have to worry about scheduling a 2nd appointment and waiting around with no oven. You can do this on your own! Thanks partselect.com :)
