Burnt-out bake element

My wife had seen a small fire in the bottom right of our oven, and I quickly turned off the oven unit, which put out the fire. We tested the oven a couple more times after it had cooled and determined that indeed the bake element had burned out. I'd used PartSelect before and been very pleased with their service (speed, ease of use of site, etc.,etc.) so I ordered a new bake element, which arrived in two days! It was easy to replace: I turned off the circuit breaker, slid the oven out from the wall, disconnected the plug, and then got to work undoing the tabs that hold the bake element to the rear wall. The only little glitch was that the screw heads on our range were neither slot nor Philips - they turned out to be small square-socket screws. I couldn't see that until I turned a bright flashlight on the job. Then it was a simple matter of trading out the screwdriver bit, disconnecting the old element, plugging in and attaching the new one, and away we went. Oven as good as new! Thanks, PartSelect!

After making sure it was the switches themselves not the burners that were the problem, it was easy locating the exact parts I needed on PartSelect and the shipment arrived in a timely manner. I had to replace two out of four switches. Using a screwdriver, I detached the display pannel and removed the faulty switches. Then I disconnected the old wires and attached them to the new switches, one at a time. Closed everything up and the "new" range works great!

One terminal was hard to remove.

Turned off electric at breaker box for range. Using a socket wrench from my little pink tool kit, I removed the two screws holding the unit at the back of the oven. Gently pulled each side of the unit out, exposing the terminals. Holding with one hand and wiggling the terminal with the other, removed the element. One was very easy, but the other was harder. Next I connected the new element to the terminals. Gently pushed the terminal back into the oven wall and replace the screws. Last turned the electric back on and then turned the oven on. The video that was online was very helpful.

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.

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!

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.

Talked to someone who knows , DX'd the potential problem,looked for the part on your very user friendly website and your DX was exactly what my oven was doing, when the Thermo-Sensor arrived, I unplugged the oven, removed the metal back, took out the faulty Sensor, replaced it very easy then realized the plug was different, so called a friend who knows how to Solder and 2 hrs, later, my oven was repaired and I began baking an Apple pie to repay a friends kindness The pie was perfectly baked , my friend was happy and so am I ,the baker, just before the holidays Thank you Parts Select for helpful DX and speedy delivery - seems you saved Christmas for me.
