Switch was easy to replace. Some hex head screws to remove the panel and two screws to remove the switch. Though the plug in positions were totally different, all the quick connect terminals were marked on both switches.

What a job. Definitely should have two people do this. First, the part provided was not an exact match. I thought I was buying the same part as original. When I found it was different, there was a note that said the part may not be exact. This being said, I had to remove the wall ovens from the wall- very heavy , then had to take the back plate off, splice the wires to make the part work and then lift it up and put it back in. Next problem, its all hooked up, but still doesn't heat up correctly. Leave this to the pros.

Turned oven on and it flashed & arced & would not heat up, but oven light was still on, but dimmer.

Most of the time I attributed to this repair was cleaning the stove in, around and in back of it after unplugging the stove. Next I used a nutdriver to remove the two retainer screws on the back of the oven. Then pulled the coil out with the wire connectors about 6 inches and pulled both of the connectors off old coil attached them to the new coil putting it back in place lining up the screw holes installed screws & tightened them up. I finished by touch up cleaning the coils of body oils due to touching the coils during install. Plugged it in, turned it on and viola! Thanks, sure beats the local appliance mechanic @ $45+/hr. Thanks again, I will look you up the next appliance that fails.

I opened the oven door, took two screws off and pulled the burnt one off and put the new one on. wow, it was so easy. My husband came home and said that he was going to install it. I told him that I had already install it. He could not believe it. I guess that women can be handymen too.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wire connectors from the lugs on the element. I then connected the new element in reverse order. Then I tested the new element by setting the controls to bake. That was the end of the repair rprocess.
Thank you for your parts and delivery service.

I turned off the circuit breaker. Unscrewed the two screws holding the bake element in place. Next, I pulled the element out and disconnected the wires. Reversed the process and I was done.

I ordered the part from PartSelect.com and had it in my hands in less than 3 days--wow!!! Super fast shipping and the part worked perfectly.

First the power was turned off, then the oven door was removed. The two screws on the bake element were removed. Then the element was pulled out so that the wires were exposed, about 3 inched and disconnected. Put the new element in and placed the wires on the ends and pushed it back in place, put the 2 screws on, put the door back on. Turned the oven on and everything back to normal !!! Thanks part select for getting my part here so quick.

Bake element wouldn't heat.

The problem was caused by the owner placing an aluminum catch pan under the bake element. The failure of the element was where it was in contact with the pan. The repair involved removing two screws pulling out the element to access the wires. The connectors were the pull off type so I just disconnected the wires from the old element and placed them on the new element, pushed the element back in place and replaced the two retaining screws. I suggested that the owner not place anything in contact with the bake element. Be sure to up-plug the stove plug before attempting repair.

Oven wouldn't heat, but broiler would

When I removed the two screws, I discovered that one wire attached to the element was not attached. I had to open the back of the range (sheet metal screws) to find the wire, which was burnt and melted when I got to it. I had to run to hardware stroe to get a new connector, but once I had that the whole thing popped together quickly. I attached both wires to the element, screwed in the screws, and voila!

The oven temperature would not exceed 200 deg.

Removed the retaining screws in the clips attached to the element in the oven, and then remembered to OPEN the breaker before proceeding. Pulled out the bad element, removed the wires, and reversed the steps to install the new one.
