heating element no longer worked

  • Customer: Maryann from Roberts WI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • 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.

The old bake element burnt out

I followed the video,that was offered and it was a snap. Used my nut screw driver and removed the screws pulled the element forward . Then removed the wire clips one by one,and coiled the wires so they wouldn't retract into the back. Connected the wire clips to the element and pushed them back into the open area . Screwed the nuts crews back into place . Set the oven to bake and watched the element turn a red glow . Completed ! I saved the elderly couple money on a new stove or expense from a service call. There cost just the cost of the element and a cup of coffee. My cost none just satisfaction helping an elderly couple.

wrong temp when baking.

removed back. discovered wrong connector on probe. Cut the connectors off and spliced with small butt connector. Took me longer to find the tools and connector than to do the repair. The wires are very small and require a very small butt connector. Tips by the sales rep and previous customer were helpful. Great service. Will try PartSelect for Cub Cadet and Yamaha OB parts. Thanks. John

My burner would stay on high regardless of where it was set.

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.
