I watched the video on your site before I purchased the replacement part, sure that it seemed simple enough to replace. Overall it was smooth and easy, the only difficult part was loosening the screws to remove the old element. On another site someone said to use clothes pins to keep the wires from slipping back inside while you did the replacement, that was a great idea. Thanks for hosting videos showing the repair before a purchase is made, so the purchaser can be sure they can handle the repair themselves!

To find problem. I turn the power off to range. Removed top back panel. Removed switch and found there was a black spot on white covering of switch. So I order a switch. When it came I turn power off to range. Removed the top panel on back of range. Removed one wire at a time and put it on the new switch. Once all wires were on new switch. I removed old switch and installed new one. I then reinstalled the top back panel and turned the power back on. It is really easy to do. If you are not confident enough. Take a picture of the back of range before removing the panel. Then take a picture of the wires before you remove them.

I ordered the part online using the model number. It came within 5 days. I had watched a video online to see how to do this repair. It was easy. I unplugged the range. I opened the oven door. Use the nut driver to remove the screws in the back of the oven that held the element in place. Once the screws were removed I gently pulled the element forward exposing the wires. I wiggled each fastener from the element. I just clipped on the new element ends to each fastener and screwed it back into the holes in back. Plugged it in and am pre-baking ribs...before I put them on the grill to finish. Yum!

Disconnected the heating element from oven box (nutdriver), pulling element outward toward the oven door to expose the element's push-on electrical terminals for voltage measurement. Used paper to insulate terminals from oven box while setting oven to "bake." Determined that electrical power (230 VAC) was present; then switched off oven and double checked the element itself was open circuit by measuring continuity with one terminal disconnected. (Violated all kinds of safety rules!) Temporarily reinstalled the bad element to maintain safe condition while waiting for replacement element. Be careful with delicate push-on terminals to avoid connectors coming off wires.
