the baking element had separated (burnt out)

  • Customer: James from Pocahontas AR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

No directions come with the parts. I used a nut driver to unhook the connections on each side. The wire was connected with a male/female small connection ( they were inside the back of the oven. I pulled each one out and had to pry them loose with a screw driver. I attached each wire and used the nutdriver to tighten them. It was easier doing the repair than writing this explanation. I am not a handy man...

Using the video instructions, I had no problems with the installation. I was so proud of what I had done and the possible money I had saved that I told everyone I know. Thanks so much for your web site. As a matter of fact I found your site while looking for possible repair costs and your ad caught my eye. I am a 81 year old female, so if I can do it anyone can.

The repair was easy. Would have been super easy if a piece of the old element had not broken off in the slot. The directions that I received were perfect. The oven was fixed within 45 minutes. No repairman needed - very inexpensive fix. By ordering this part and following the directions it was a quick and cheap fix. Thank you for having my part and sending instructions with it.

I watched the repair video that came with my recipt for my order. When my bake element arrived I unplugged the stove. I then followed the instructions in the video by unscrewing the old element and removing the wires. I then hooked up the wires to the new element, pushed it into place and attached the screws. Plugged in the stove and turned on the over to preheat. Worked like brand new. PartSelect save me so much money and time. I love this site!

Bake element flared up and died

The most difficult part of the process was cleaning the oven. It possibly had never been cleaned before. It was cleaned while waiting for the part to arrive. The part came in 2 or 3 days and I got right to work. I had expected that the nuts might be frozen with rust to the back plate but the nut driver handled them with ease. I used clothes pins to prevent the wires from disappearing back through the holes in the back plate. The push pull connectors came off easily and went back on snug with no adjustment needed. Everything fit just fine and best of all, the oven can bake again.

Electric Range Element's Not Heating

  • Customer: Robert from Waldorf MD
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Reviewed the online repair video a few times then got started. Although only two were bad, I replaced all four terminal blocks. I removed the range top instead of using the built in kick stands. this left me much more room to work and I was able to clean the top of the range really well before getting started. Wires for the back terminals where short and a little difficult to use after cutting off the old terminal blocks. The terminal block mounting option for my style range included with the repair kit would not allow me to utilize the screw for the third wire on the left rear burner. I used a drill to carefully widen the hole in the mount to make the original screw fit as there are no screws included with the kit. This added the extra time to complete the repair. Over all the repair was simple to complete but having to modify the terminal block mount was dissapointing considering the web site selected parts for my specific model number. Still a bargain compared to what a service call or new purchase costs. I will be reparing my ranges from now on.

With screw driver, popped out old glide and popped in new ones. Apparently there are some pieces missing that the front drawer glides slide on. I have not found a picture so I don't know what they are. partselect was very prompt in sending what I did order. Thanks.

So simple....removed back panel, removed knob from front of range and removed 2 screws holding the knob in. Used needle nose pliers to pull wires off existing switch, placed wires in identical spots on new switch. Put switch post through front of range and put the 2 screws back in and the knob on. Finished and ready to go in less than 10 minutes. No more sparking....
