Bake element failed

  • Customer: Una from Milwaukee WI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I ordered the part and received it in two days. Using only a nut driver, (and after tuning off the electrical supply to the range), I removed the element, pulled off the attached terminal attachment, replaced the new element, connecting the new one to the wire terminals, replaced the nuts, turned on the power and was once again in business. Thank you. (P.S. I am a 70 year old grandmother)

The bake element had been heating erratically, and finally broke when I knocked it while wiping out the bottom of the oven.

I turned off the curcuit breaker, then removed the two screws holding the element in place and pulled it out to expose the connecting wires. The connectors resisted coming off at first but gentle pressure w/pliers did the trick. Then they slipped onto the new element easily, and I pushed the tips of the element back into the holes, replaced the two screws, and flipped the circuit breaker back on. Good to go in about 20 minutes!

Oven wouldn't heat

  • Customer: Kenneth from Hope KS
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

First, I determined the problem by making sure that all other functions of the range were working... and they were. Then, I disconnected the power. After that, I pulled the range out from the cabinet space and proceeded to remove the back cover. Once the cover was off, I removed the two electric leads from the oven baking element and tested it for continuity. No continuity, so I ordered the new part. Once the part arrived (which was very quick) I reversed the procedure, and the bake cycle of the oven is functioning once again. Not a problem...

When I found that the Element had burned out, I went to the internet with the model #, and quickly found Partselect. com in a search.
I ordered the part on a wednesday night around 10:00 pm with 3 to 5 day delivery. When I got home from work on Friday the Element was at my door.
It took me about 3 min. with just an 8mm nut driver
to take out the old element unplug 2 prongs and install the new one.
Thanks for the extremely fast service

My husband first removed the two screws that held the element in place. He then disconnected the wires and removed the element. As soon as the new element arrived by it's circuitus route thru CT and NY he did just the reverse steps and it was installed and worked fine and I can bake once more.

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I had to replace the switch on one of the large elements. It could and should have been a quicker repair if there would have been some installation/wiring instructions included with the part. Other than that the repair went well.

I couldn't unscrew the leveling foot because it was rusted and corroded. The bracket holding it was easy to remove so I took the bracket with the corroded foot off and replaced it with the new foot and bracket. Very simple. I made sure I oiled it so it wouldn't rust again.

Baking element broken on one side

  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 1 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
First I turned off the electical supply to the oven.I unscrewed the nut bolts on both sides of the baking element and pulled the wires through. Disconnected the wires of old element, then connected the wires of the new element. Pushed wires back and connected the nut bolts to the back of the oven.The new element did not come with new screws so I used the old screws to connect the new element. The only problem is that after installing the new element my oven still does not work. It doesnt get any heat. Not sure what went wrong.

The bake element burnt out so i replaced it which went really easy a couple of screw and two wires. Then it still wouldn't work, so i purchased an electronic oven control and replaced that just some screws and flipping over wires and a wire harness now all is well and only spent $180 which is far less than a new oven.

After watching the video on your website, I ordered the part and it was here in 3 days so I followed instructions on video and replaced it in minutes. removed 2 screws (with square heads), unhooked old part from wires, hooked new part to wires, fed back through the holes in back of oven and replaced screws. Turned it on and did a victory dance. Oh yes I did!

THis was the easiest repair I have done. All I had to do was remove the screws in the back of the element that connects it to the stove. Pull it off the posts.. then put new element on posts, replace screws. It was so easy.
