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.

I am a single woman and was worried that it would be difficult to change. it only took me 20 minutes.

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

  • 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.

Oven wouldn't heat

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.

I removed the damaged element by removing the two screws holding it against the back wall of the oven. I pulled the old element out to expose the wires on each end. I pulled the wires off the old element and removed it. Plugged the wires onto he new element, and slid the wires back through the holes. Re-installed using the same screws. Done.

First I pulled the oven away from the wall. Then I unplugged the cord from the wall. I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. I took the old element out and then put the new element in and connected the two wires.I pushed the elements back into place. I reconnected the power cord to the wall and pushed the oven back in place. It was quick and easy.
