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
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

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.

after reading the very first reader report, I was happily amazed how easy the repair was. it took longer to unwrap the part than it did to undo two small nuts, unclip the wire, clip on the replacement burner, and redo both nuts. thanks again for the help. saved lots of time and money.

Electric Connector to mounting bracket too long

I had to remove the back of the range in order to cut away the sheet metal that was contacted by the bent terminals that had to be done to shorten them to clear the back sheet metal panel.

Oven would not get up or stay up to selected temperature

  • Customer: wondell from Winnemucca NV
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Pull stove out to get behind it,unplug temperature probe plug. Remove temp probe from oven by removing the screw holding it in place on back of oven. Cut plug off temp probe unit leaving as much lead wire as possible on plug end. Strip wires on new probe and end of plug wires(one quarter inch). Then I used two small butt connectors to join the stripped wires,one for each pair of wires. Two small wire 'nuts' may also be used as the connections are outside the oven and not exposed to the heat of the oven while it is in operation. Hope this helps the inexperienced 'do it yourselfers'--:)

Oven went out on Christmas Eve . . . yikes! Managed to get through the holiday by using my roaster and my husband was planning to call a repairman the day after Christmas. I told him to wait until I could do some research. I got on line, found this site and decided I could do it myself. I ordered the element on Thursday, received it on Friday. Great service! It took about 10 minutes to install, by following the video. (Took longer to find the right electric breaker than it did to change the element!)

Although I had a general idea of what to do, I watched a video on this website; it ensured me that I could repair this. Over all I spent 30 minutes repairing the oven, but 15 minutes of that was spent trying to find the right tool. I didn't have a screw driver with a square head, so I ended up putting a square bit in my electric drill. This WAS A VERY EASY REPAIR. On the video, the repairman took less than 3 minutes, but that was optimum. All you do is (1) make sure the breaker is off; (2) remove the bad element by taking two screws out at the back of the oven; (3) disconnect the wires coming from the oven; (4) hook the same terminals up to the new element; (5) push the wires back inside the oven body; (6) insert the screws into the holes on the new element; (7) tighten the screws to the oven body and YOU ARE THROUGH. THAT EASY!
