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!

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

The heating element was defective. Unplugged the stove. Removed two screws from the bracket inside the oven that held in the element, pulled it forward, removed the two electrical spade connectors, and discarded the defective element. Removed the new element, put back on the two spade connectors, positioned the new element in place by pushing it back, screwed in bracket, replugged in stove, and tested.

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.
