Element cracked in two pieces

Shut off circuit breaker to stove and collected the tool from the basement. Turned on flashlight. Unscrewed the two hex nuts from the old element/back of the oven. Slid the old element prongs out of the back, exposing the connecting wires. Pulled the connecting wires off of the old element, carefully, so that the connections wouldn't come off of the wires. Threw the old element pieces in the garbage. Connected the new element to the connecting wires and re-fastened the hex nuts. My husband had wanted to call the repair man, but it didn't look too difficult, so I decided to try it on my own. Boy was he surprised when I fixed it, and for a fraction of the cost of hiring a repairman! Ladies, we can do this ourselves!!! :) Thank you for being there for us to order our part from, Parts Select, we had our new part in less than 24 hours, so the shipping was blazing fast!!! Keep up the good work!!! :)

My husband called our one and only parts store and got a price of $50 for the element. I used a search engine over the weekend and found the same thing for almost half the price. I received an email that said the element was shipped out on Monday, and it arrived on Tuesday afternoon! So my husband removed the two screws that hold the element in place, then replaced it with a new one. I am back in business for the holidays!

Oven's bake element had cracked and was no longer working.

  • Customer: Brian from Marion IA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 120 of 184 people found this instruction helpful
The element is attached to the back of the oven by two small screws. After unplugging the electricity to the oven and removing the attaching screws with a socket set (6.5 mm), you are able to pull the element several inches out from the back of the oven. Doing so exposes where the wiring is connected to the ends of the baking element. The element disconnects from the wiring with a light tug, after which the new element can be connected. I leave the "real" fix-it jobs to the pros ... this was a simple repair that anyone can do.

Back Burner didn't function

  • Customer: William from Burke VA
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 39 of 40 people found this instruction helpful
We moved into our townhouse about 6 yrs ago. During the home inspection we checked the range and saw the Red light come on when we turned on each burner. After moving in we realized the large back burner did not work. The light came on but the element never got hot. I of course replaced the element but that did not work. Several years passed and we just ignored the issue. We just got by with 3 burners. Lately we realized how much easier it would be to have all four burners working. Knowing that we will be selling our townhome soon we figured we should either fix the problem or replace the range.

I didn't want to call a repair man because I didn't want to be charged a $150 to have him come out and they to pay extra for parts (and of course a 2nd visit). So I went to www.Partselect.com and typed in the model of my range. Found the diagrams for my range and saw that from the switch ran a pair of wires to a Universal Receptacle (aka Terminal Block Kit). I figured since the Red light turns on when I turn the switch on it has to be the Terminal Block.

I ordered the part from www.Partselect.com ($14.00 including shipping) and replaced the part. The burner still would not get hot. I decided to test the switch. I removed the Control Panel cover (which is secure by 2 screws just below the digital clock). Once the cover was off, I saw the Blue wires going from the switch to the Terminal Block. To test the switch, I disconnected the two Blue Wires from connectors H1 and H2 and temporarily connected them to H1 and H2 of another switch. Sure enough, when I turned the other switch the element got hot.

So I placed another order from www.Partselect.com for a replacement switch ($50 including shipping). When that part came, I flipped the electrical circuit going to the range. I then removed the Control Panel cover again. With the new switch in hand (holding it near the old switch still attached to the Control Panel, I used the pliers to pull out each wire from it's connector and place it to it's corresponding connector on the new switch. Once all the wires were connected to the new switch, I pulled the knob of the switch off then used a phillips screwdriver to remove the two screws holding the switch to the control panel. I replaced the old switch with the new one put the screws back in, replaced the knob. Turned the circuit back on and tested to make sure that the element got hot. When it did, then I replaced the Control Panel cover and enjoyed a nice dinner that was cooked in less time than we're accustomed to because of the new burner. So I spent a total of $64.00 to fix our range. Less than half the amount I would've spent if I called for a technican. And far less then buying a new range.

Partselect is a great resource for information. They have diagrams and schematics available to view and/or download. And when ordering it's a snap because there's an "Add to Cart" button next to each part it lists. So there's no confusion. I've already recommended Partselect.com to about 5 people. And will continue to do so!!

Oven element burnt and broke into two pieces.

  • Customer: Denise from Fort Wayne IN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 32 of 36 people found this instruction helpful
FIRST THING! UNPLUG THE OVEN! After I made sure there was no residual charge left in the oven I took a 1/4 inch socket wrench and attached to an interchangable screwdriver and crawled in the oven. I removed both screws and gently pulled on the element until the wire leads came thru. I then unplugged the leads and replaced the element with the new element and plugged them in. Then gently slipped the leads back into the oven and replaced the screws. Turned on the oven and WHA LA!! We had our oven back and running and had chocolate chips cookies in a flash! It was fast and easy and saved me a fortune!

Lower element burned into.

First thing I did was to turn off the range supply breaker. There were two screws, one on each side, that held the lower element into place. I used a phillips head screw driver to remove the screws and pulled the element out for access to the wires. I pulled the connectors off of the element and remove it from the oven. I them put the new element into place, attached the wires, replaced the screws and turned on the breaker. It was an easy fix.

bake element burned out/ no oven heat.

  • Customer: Tom from Ridgefield CT
  • Difficulty: Really easy

I removed the two element screws, one on each side. This was very easy and fast.
I then pulled the old element towards me about
three inches to expose the wires attached to each
end. The wires have a slide on terminal connector
so replacement is easy, but you must hold the
terminal connected to the wire then pull the element off. Do not try to pull off the element by pulling on the wire you can cause damage to the
wire and create a new problem. Once the old element was removed I attached the wires to the new element by sliding the terminal connectors on each end and pushed them firmly into place. I then pushed the new element back and replaced the screws on each side and the repair was complete.The repair took all of about 5 min. The best part was I received the the new element from Parts Express the next day and had the oven working within 24 hrs.. The repair service could not do it that fast. Do it yourself, you can save a lot of money!!

We notice a hot spot on the bake element while cooking and the next day the burner wouldn't heat.

First I unplugged the the stove. I then unscrewed the two screw holding the element. Because I had read the other repair reports on the site, I was very careful in pulling the element out so I wouldn't lose the wires in the rear of the stove.
Once out, I held them with the pliers and gently pulled the element until it was loose. Plugged in the new element screwed it back in and plugged in the oven. Worked like a charm. By the way the part arrived the day after ordering it!!!! This is a great site.

Oven light receptacle broken - bulb base broke off

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 19 of 23 people found this instruction helpful
Turned power off at electrical panel. Pulled oven away from wall. Removed back cover (6 screws), then unplugged wires from old receptacle. I had to pull the squeeze clips backwards & break them to remove the old receptacle - couldn't squeeze them enough to remove them otherwise. The old receptacle came out through the inside of the oven, and the new one snapped in easily from inside the oven as well. Replaced wiring, installed new bulb, restored power & tested. Replaced back cover. Good time to vacuum under/behind where the oven usually lives before sliding it back to the wall.

I called a repair place. They charged $54 to diagnose, (said it needed a new latch motor) then wanted $220 to complete the repair. I checked online prices and did it myself for about 15 minutes work and the latch motor itself ($44?).

Was necessary to uplug the range, pull it away from the wall and remove the back panel sheet metal, then 3 screws that mount the motor. Replace motor, reattach sheet metal. Plug in. Done. Ready to bake cookies.

I had to replace the switch in the back of the control knobs. I was very grateful to the female phone attendant who answered my call. Since my part number had switched a few times, she took the time to reverify the "blueprints" of my machine with the parts carried at Parts Select and she helped me be assured that I was buying the correct part for my machine. She was SOOOO helpful. Will definately buy again from your store.

anti-tip bracket not installed

  • Customer: Brian from Panama City Beach FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • 14 of 17 people found this instruction helpful
I was selling my home and did not realize that the anti-tip bracket was not originally installed. A home inspection caught the problem and the buyers required that I install one. I could not find the original and obviously the installer never put it in place to begin with. The buyers wanted this resolved within a week so I had to act fast. I could not find one locally so I found what I needed on your website. It arrived in a couple of days and was easy to install. I used the template provided in the kit and drove the screws through the bracket into the wood plate behind the drywall. Pushed the range back in place and that's it. Couldn't get any easier.
