I turned off the circuit breaker. Unscrewed the two screws holding the bake element in place. Next, I pulled the element out and disconnected the wires. Reversed the process and I was done.

I ordered the part from PartSelect.com and had it in my hands in less than 3 days--wow!!! Super fast shipping and the part worked perfectly.
Thank you!

Bake element wouldn't heat.

The problem was caused by the owner placing an aluminum catch pan under the bake element. The failure of the element was where it was in contact with the pan. The repair involved removing two screws pulling out the element to access the wires. The connectors were the pull off type so I just disconnected the wires from the old element and placed them on the new element, pushed the element back in place and replaced the two retaining screws. I suggested that the owner not place anything in contact with the bake element. Be sure to up-plug the stove plug before attempting repair.

I ordered the part and received it in two days. Using only a nut driver, (and after tuning off the electrical supply to the range), I removed the element, pulled off the attached terminal attachment, replaced the new element, connecting the new one to the wire terminals, replaced the nuts, turned on the power and was once again in business. Thank you. (P.S. I am a 70 year old grandmother)

The bake element had been heating erratically, and finally broke when I knocked it while wiping out the bottom of the oven.

I turned off the curcuit breaker, then removed the two screws holding the element in place and pulled it out to expose the connecting wires. The connectors resisted coming off at first but gentle pressure w/pliers did the trick. Then they slipped onto the new element easily, and I pushed the tips of the element back into the holes, replaced the two screws, and flipped the circuit breaker back on. Good to go in about 20 minutes!

First the power was turned off, then the oven door was removed. The two screws on the bake element were removed. Then the element was pulled out so that the wires were exposed, about 3 inched and disconnected. Put the new element in and placed the wires on the ends and pushed it back in place, put the 2 screws on, put the door back on. Turned the oven on and everything back to normal !!! Thanks part select for getting my part here so quick.

Not heating up properly.

What a job. Definitely should have two people do this. First, the part provided was not an exact match. I thought I was buying the same part as original. When I found it was different, there was a note that said the part may not be exact. This being said, I had to remove the wall ovens from the wall- very heavy , then had to take the back plate off, splice the wires to make the part work and then lift it up and put it back in. Next problem, its all hooked up, but still doesn't heat up correctly. Leave this to the pros.

Turned oven on and it flashed & arced & would not heat up, but oven light was still on, but dimmer.

Most of the time I attributed to this repair was cleaning the stove in, around and in back of it after unplugging the stove. Next I used a nutdriver to remove the two retainer screws on the back of the oven. Then pulled the coil out with the wire connectors about 6 inches and pulled both of the connectors off old coil attached them to the new coil putting it back in place lining up the screw holes installed screws & tightened them up. I finished by touch up cleaning the coils of body oils due to touching the coils during install. Plugged it in, turned it on and viola! Thanks, sure beats the local appliance mechanic @ $45+/hr. Thanks again, I will look you up the next appliance that fails.

I used a small wrench, It was very easy to remove. once I removed the screws and disconnected the plugs from heating element then had to remove the back cover of stove so i could plug in new element. but was very easy. I am a single woman and was worried that it would be difficult to change. it only took me 20 minutes.

I opened the oven door, took two screws off and pulled the burnt one off and put the new one on. wow, it was so easy. My husband came home and said that he was going to install it. I told him that I had already install it. He could not believe it. I guess that women can be handymen too.

I had to replace the switch on one of the large elements. It could and should have been a quicker repair if there would have been some installation/wiring instructions included with the part. Other than that the repair went well.
