the baking element had separated (burnt out)

  • Customer: James from Pocahontas AR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

No directions come with the parts. I used a nut driver to unhook the connections on each side. The wire was connected with a male/female small connection ( they were inside the back of the oven. I pulled each one out and had to pry them loose with a screw driver. I attached each wire and used the nutdriver to tighten them. It was easier doing the repair than writing this explanation. I am not a handy man...

Using the video instructions, I had no problems with the installation. I was so proud of what I had done and the possible money I had saved that I told everyone I know. Thanks so much for your web site. As a matter of fact I found your site while looking for possible repair costs and your ad caught my eye. I am a 81 year old female, so if I can do it anyone can.

The repair was easy. Would have been super easy if a piece of the old element had not broken off in the slot. The directions that I received were perfect. The oven was fixed within 45 minutes. No repairman needed - very inexpensive fix. By ordering this part and following the directions it was a quick and cheap fix. Thank you for having my part and sending instructions with it.

I watched the repair video that came with my recipt for my order. When my bake element arrived I unplugged the stove. I then followed the instructions in the video by unscrewing the old element and removing the wires. I then hooked up the wires to the new element, pushed it into place and attached the screws. Plugged in the stove and turned on the over to preheat. Worked like brand new. PartSelect save me so much money and time. I love this site!

Bake element flared up and died

The most difficult part of the process was cleaning the oven. It possibly had never been cleaned before. It was cleaned while waiting for the part to arrive. The part came in 2 or 3 days and I got right to work. I had expected that the nuts might be frozen with rust to the back plate but the nut driver handled them with ease. I used clothes pins to prevent the wires from disappearing back through the holes in the back plate. The push pull connectors came off easily and went back on snug with no adjustment needed. Everything fit just fine and best of all, the oven can bake again.

So simple....removed back panel, removed knob from front of range and removed 2 screws holding the knob in. Used needle nose pliers to pull wires off existing switch, placed wires in identical spots on new switch. Put switch post through front of range and put the 2 screws back in and the knob on. Finished and ready to go in less than 10 minutes. No more sparking....

burner switch burned out

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Unplugged the main cord to the socket in behind range. Took back panel off. Unscrewed switch from its position on face of range. Switch is not a look alike switch to original, so had to pay attention to the labeling on both switches as to their identity. Removed one line at a time from old switch and placed on new switch. Rechecked positions of the wires and made sure there was no binding of the wire positions when installed. Mounted switch to same position previous switch was removed. Reinstalled back panel, plugged in range and tested switch. Very easy repair as long as you can see the labeling on back of switches. I used a light having a strap that is positioned on my head for best lighting possible for one person repair.

Confirm the problem and check electrical diagram to see if there was any other circuit in the syatem that could cause the burner to stay on , remove back cover and inspect switch contacts, found them burnt , look up parts for the model number and replace it.

I am an electrician so I had no problem identifying wire and connecting them properly. However there were no instructions provided with the part and the configuration of the new switch was different than the the old one. I doubt if a DIY individual would have been capable of handling this task. Also there were no safety warning with respect to electrical repairs, which is a must today.
