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!

Control Rod On Switch Was Broken Off

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
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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 :)
