Removed bottom drawer. Pulled Range out away from the wall. Unplugged Range. Removed 6 screws from top back cover. Removed top back cover to reveal the Infinite Switches behind the knobs. Pulled the knobs off of the Switches I wanted to change. Removed the 2 Phillips Head screws holding each switch. Pulled the wires off of the old Infinite Switch and put them on the new Infinite Switch. I was careful to put each wire on the correct terminal from old to new switch. I then reassembled the Range in reverse order. I changed both 8" Burner Infinite Switches. I was only having trouble with 1 switch. But, upon inspection. Both Switches had burn marks on the top left of the switch.

My husband and I pulled the stove away from the wall and unplugged it. We felt it was safer to unplug the stove rather than turn off the breaker. My husband disconnected the baking element and checked the lead wires coming into the oven to see if they were damaged but they were not. He fitted the new baking element to the lead wires and tightened the screws on each side. It was really easy to repair and the video we watched on the internet really helped. As a Mom who bakes a lot, and I wanted to make sure that the oven temp was correct so I tested the temp three different times with my oven thermometer. Each time the oven temp was accurate. Parts Select Service Department was most helpful and I received the part within two days. I highly recommend them and I would use them again.

left terminal broke off from the base of the block causing circuit breaker to trip and not able to be re-set

Ensured breaker was off. My range is hot wired. Removed all cables from old terminal block with nutdriver. Used phillips head screw driver to remove old terminal block from back of range. replaced old terminal block with new one. Re-attached accessory cables to small terminals first, then the main cables to the terminal block using where necessary long nose pliers. It is important to make note of which cables are attached to each terminal of the block, so make a sketch PRIOR to removal. Also be careful how the cables are attached to the block. You are using 10 gauge cable with thick insulation. It is important that when pushing the range back into position the cable does not put too much pressure on the block as it will break it. That's exactly what happened to this last one. It probably cracked under the strain of the pressure of the cable and finally current running through it weakened it to the point where it broke off from the block causing it to short and trip the breaker.

Element would not preheat and a hotspot appeared on it.

First observed how the element attached to the oven. Then unplugged the range. Unscrewed it at both ends using my nutdriver. At the connection clips, simply pulled the element end away from the electrical wire it attaches to. Used a pair of pliers to pry loose the clips. Once separated, slightly bent the wire so it would not slip back into the hole that goes into the back of the range. Did this on both sides. Reversed the process to attach the replacement. That process is insert the wires into the connection clips, push the wires back into the range, reattach the element to the oven wall with the original screws, plug in the range. I commend PARTSSELECT for rapid delivery.

I looked at video and followed the instructions from the man in the video. I pulled out range and then unplugged range from electrical outlet. I removed screws from back and took back off. I then took the two screws out from front of switch. I pulled switch out and then removed one of the wires off and placed it in the same place on the new switch. I did same on the other two wires. I then put switch back in place and tighten the two screws on front. I replaced the back on the range. I plugged range back into the receptacle, pushed range back in place. I put control knob on and then turned it on. The eye worked fine. very easy!

Quit after getting shocked. New part had different configuration. Hard to see marking for pull and plug from old switch to new switch. New switch had different configuration. After all that and making sure switch worked, got shocked as stove was pushed back to wall. Some other issues with wiring has a shorting out problem. Maybe time to call a pro or get rid of the stove and get the gas stove we have been longing for. Be sure to match points on pulling and plugging as the configuration may be different.

Just plugged it in! The hardest part was finding the model number. It was inside the top of the stove,while cleaning, I found it-on the left hand side when you take out the burner pans. I searched this site, found the part and when it arrived I just plugged it in and it worked fine. I would say less than 5 minutes to fix this issue.

heating element no longer worked

  • Customer: Maryann from Roberts WI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set

pulled out the range and unplugged the range from the outlet! removed the oven racks. unscrewed the heating element and pulled out the wire connections a bit so i could grasp the connectors better and so they would not go back into the holes. getting the bad element off the connectors was the most difficult part of the process - this is what took the longest for me. I used pliers to grab the heating element connector and wiggle until it came loose from the connectors. once off, it was pretty simple to re-connect the replacement element and tuck everything back and screw the element back onto the oven wall. WA-LA!! back in the baking business - kids and mom are happy again! temp needs calibrating, but should be able to figure that out....thanks much!

A Phillips screwdriver and pliers were all the tools required. At first glance, the physical appearances of the OEM and the replacement were not identical. The slide-on electrical tabs were numbered on each in the same way. Sliding off the connectors and re=connecting them on the same number tab on the new switch was all there was to it.

- Cut the power to the oven (I used breaker). - Unscrew 2 screws. - Disconnect from 2 electric terminals. - Remove old bake element. - Connect new bake element to 2 electric terminals. - Screw the 2 screws back on. - Turn the breaker back on. ------------------------------------------------> Done! . . Saved the $79 that the appliance guy would've charged just for diagnostics. The part shipped to me within 24 hours so I didn't have to worry about scheduling a 2nd appointment and waiting around with no oven. You can do this on your own! Thanks partselect.com :)
