Unplugged the main cord to the socket in behind range. Took back panel off. Unscrewed switch from its position on face of range. Switch is not a look alike switch to original, so had to pay attention to the labeling on both switches as to their identity. Removed one line at a time from old switch and placed on new switch. Rechecked positions of the wires and made sure there was no binding of the wire positions when installed. Mounted switch to same position previous switch was removed. Reinstalled back panel, plugged in range and tested switch. Very easy repair as long as you can see the labeling on back of switches. I used a light having a strap that is positioned on my head for best lighting possible for one person repair.

I am an electrician so I had no problem identifying wire and connecting them properly. However there were no instructions provided with the part and the configuration of the new switch was different than the the old one. I doubt if a DIY individual would have been capable of handling this task. Also there were no safety warning with respect to electrical repairs, which is a must today.

Took the back off and replaced the switch for that burner. Got alittle nervous because the switch did not look the same and the connectors were labeled differently, but it worked. Lost the red light button some how during the repair so when I turned the stove on sparks came out the back because the light connector was loose so I did have to order another one of those.

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!
