Thanks to the video on your web site, the replacement was very easy! We had a hard time removing the screws from inside the oven as we did not have a hexnut driver, but once we removed the screws then we lost one of the wires, (it fell back into the little hole) and then we had to remove the back of the oven to get the lost wire, push it through the little hole and we connected the new element, screwed it back in and then we baked some cookies.

Replaced the bottom element in the oven. Had to remove the 2 screws holding the element in place. Gently pulled the element loose and disconnected it from the wires connected to the oven. Connected new element to the 2 oven wires. Gently pushed the new element into the holes of the oven. Replaced the screws and I was done

Using a socket set, I unscrewed the original/broken heating coil from the back wall of the oven. I gently removed the screws holding the element in place and slid out the connecting wires from inside the oven wall. Then, I detached the wires from the original heating element and attached them to the new one. I slid the wires back into the oven wall, screwed the new element in place making sure both screws were tight, that's it!

Oven would not heat up.

Just pushed the stove to the front unplugged it and unscrewed the old coil and connected the new one. It was very easy to do. I had ordered the same part last year from this company and kept the invoice so I knew exactly what I had to order. I use my oven quite alot so I guess that is why the bottom coil keeps burning out. Thank you for your quick shipping!!! I am one happy customer with a working oven once again.

It was the holiday season and all through the house, cries of "what's wrong with the oven?" were heard from my spouse. "I know you can fix it!" she said, trying to flatter, so I logged on to Partselect.com to see what was the matter. I found what I needed and ordered with a click, and to my surprise my part arrived quick. I unplugged the oven, thinking "safety first" and bent down to inspect it, expecting the worst. With flashlight, wrench and pliers and still feeling queasy, I was surprised to find out that it was really quite easy. The two screws in the flanges came out with a twist and the terminal slid off, no need for a fist. With the new element in place and the terminals on, the screws were replaced and the repair was all done. “You really DID fix it” she said with a look, “Now get out of my way, I gotta cook!”

I read other experiences on line and determined that it was either the element of the control switch. So I decided to order the control. When deciding I had removed the upper back sheild and put it back on. Subsequently a couple of days later there were popping noises culminating in a flash and the stove went 'dark'. I figured that I had pinched a wire when I put the upper shield back on. I removed the shield and looked for black 'short' marks. None were visible. I went to the electric panel and tried to reset the 60 amp breaker. It wouldn't reset and momentarily the lights dimmed. Uh-oh! Went back to stove and opened area where the cord connects to the stove. Direct short- a lose terminal block bolt had welded itself to the chassis! I redid all connections and lined inside of stove back with duct tape- also redid the connections with bolts, nuts and lockwashers covered each with electrical tape. Now reconnecting electric I put the new switch in. Removed the knob from the front and started to transfer the wires from the back. This was a little confusing because the control I received looked different from the one in the stove. After some checking I looked closely at the terminals on each control and they had tiny number/letters on them like H1, Li, H2 etc. So I just transferred H1 0n one cntrol switch to H1 on the new switch- L1 to L1 and so on. Put it all back together, turned on power and everything is working great.
