Pretty easy installation; you lift the top plate up and snip the wires maybe four inches away from the burner. Leave more wire than you think you need; once you get into it you'll realize you need more wire length than you think.

Then strip the remaining ends, twist them together with the provided caps, and use the heat shrink to hold it together. Remove the old terminal, replace it with the new ones, and you're good to go!

Remember to check that the wires are tight in the cap before heat shrinking, though. I had to get more shrink wrap in order to finish.

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 wires. connected the new element, reassembled and SHAZAM. It worked. I am not good with electrical circuit testing etc. even though I know it must be easy so after reading many stories here, I decided to start by replacing just the element and see if I got lucky. I did. No need to call expensive repairman.

Baking element burned out

The element went out on a Wednesday. We ordered the part the next day. We received it the following Tuesday (Mon. was a holiday). My 16 yr. old son replaced the part within 15 minutes. It was a piece of cake-actually it was a pizza!!
First and foremost we turned off the breaker, a very important thing to remember!! Then he removed the two screws that hold the element in place. He then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires...and reconnected the new ones and put screws back in. Voila!! Ours was stillll under warranty, but we would have had to pay the service call and labor costs. Our do it yourself was much cheaper and faster!!

Unplug the oven, open the door, take the screws out of the back wall that hold the small brackets which hold the element. Pull the element out of the wall, and pull a little of the wires with it to grasp easily. There are square nut screws, so you need the appropriate tool. Unplug the old element from the wires, and plug the new one in. Screw everything back together! This was a very easy fix!

Original Elememt went bad

The directions have been stated many time and they are quite simple. Take out the two screws, pull the element so the wire connections come through into the oven. Disconnect the element at the wire connectors and replace. This is a dirt easy job.

The only real area for a potential problem is pulling the wire connectors through into the oven. As long as you pull slow and from the back - right next to the whole, you will be fine. Take the connectors off carefully and you're golden. Easy job.

i called Sears and ordered the element and they charged me 16.99 plus the part to ship the next day. after 1 week i called them and they said the part was on backorder. i then check with them each week almost a month and the part was still on back order, I asked if they could fix it faster if they came to the house, they informed me it would cost 65.00 for a repair person to see what part i needed and after that they would schedule m e for a repair when the part came in. meanwhile i could not use my oven. i happened to go on line and came up with your web site. i ordered the part and 2 days later my son installed it. my oven works great . your company is awsome.
