Replaced temp probe and checked OK. This model did not have a full back as the instructional video showed. No cover to remove at all. Only suggestion might be to include two wire nuts of proper size. Average wire nut would be too big. Fortunately, I happened to have a couple.

Quite easy and takes 5 minutes Remove racks from oven. Use a phillips screwdriver and remove 1 screw from each side of baking element. Gently pull baking element slowly or carefully so you do not damage wires, insulation around wires or so they don't come off element before you can reach them. With a pliers, hold the metal clip attached to wire and pull off of baking element. Make sure wire will not go back into back of stove. Pull off opposite side wire in same manner. Take new element, check the orientation of the element, make sure it it going in correct, and slide wire clip onto one end of element. Do the same thing with the other wire on opposite side. Carefully feed wire back into openings in oven while placing element back in oven.. Replace screws on each side of element to hold in place. Turn oven on so make sure it element is heating. I left my oven on 400 degrees to burn off anything that may have been on the new element during manufacturing so it would not leave or transfer an odor to food when using the next time.

First, I disconnected the electrical power by pulling apart the plug behind the range. Next, I removed the screws holding the service plate on back of the top panel.I removed the switch knob by gently pulling it from the stem. Underneath I found 2 screws holding the switch in the panel. I removed these with a phillips screwdriver.I was able to pull the entire switch out to the rear leaving all wires attached.The new switch looked different from the original and the wires were configured differently but the wires were clearly marked. By removing one at a time and placing it on the new switch to the corresponding marking,it was a simple matter to wire the switch.I reinstalled the switch in the panel,put back in the screws to hold the switch, slid the knob back on the stem, reinstalled the rear panel,and plugged the power cord back in.The switch worked perfectly.

Watched the video on Partselect before ordering the part, to see what I was getting into. Part arrived super quick. Removed bad element just as video described, and installed new element in opposite direction. Job was complete, and super was in the oven in less than 15 mins after arriving home from work. Anybody can do this repair, don't waste your money on a service call!

bake element caught fire and needed to be replaced

  • Customer: Betty from Midland, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy

first pulled the breaker, then removed the oven door. One wire came out easily but the other side would not budge so we had to take off the back of the range. They had cought the wire up in a loop and so it had no give. Removed it from the loop so if it ever needs to be replaced again we won't have the same problem. Used the advice from other comments and it went as discribed. I hope others also removed the door as I can't imagine how much harder it would be with the door in place.
