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!

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)

oven wouldn't heat

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.

Oven wouldn't heat, but broiler would

When I removed the two screws, I discovered that one wire attached to the element was not attached. I had to open the back of the range (sheet metal screws) to find the wire, which was burnt and melted when I got to it. I had to run to hardware stroe to get a new connector, but once I had that the whole thing popped together quickly. I attached both wires to the element, screwed in the screws, and voila!

The oven temperature would not exceed 200 deg.

Removed the retaining screws in the clips attached to the element in the oven, and then remembered to OPEN the breaker before proceeding. Pulled out the bad element, removed the wires, and reversed the steps to install the new one.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wire connectors from the lugs on the element. I then connected the new element in reverse order. Then I tested the new element by setting the controls to bake. That was the end of the repair rprocess.
Thank you for your parts and delivery service.

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.

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 couldn't unscrew the leveling foot because it was rusted and corroded. The bracket holding it was easy to remove so I took the bracket with the corroded foot off and replaced it with the new foot and bracket. Very simple. I made sure I oiled it so it wouldn't rust again.

When I found that the Element had burned out, I went to the internet with the model #, and quickly found Partselect. com in a search.
I ordered the part on a wednesday night around 10:00 pm with 3 to 5 day delivery. When I got home from work on Friday the Element was at my door.
It took me about 3 min. with just an 8mm nut driver
to take out the old element unplug 2 prongs and install the new one.
Thanks for the extremely fast service

My husband first removed the two screws that held the element in place. He then disconnected the wires and removed the element. As soon as the new element arrived by it's circuitus route thru CT and NY he did just the reverse steps and it was installed and worked fine and I can bake once more.
