I UNPLUGGED the oven (very important), then I removed the two screws that hold the element in place, pulled the element out far enough to disconnect the two wires, plugged the wires on to the new element, pushed the new element back into place, and replaced and tightend the two screws. Finally, I plugged the oven back in.

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 wires. connected the new element, reassembled and SHAZAM. It worked. I am not good with electrical circuit testing etc. even though I know it must be easy so after reading many stories here, I decided to start by replacing just the element and see if I got lucky. I did. No need to call expensive repairman.

The element went out on a Wednesday. We ordered the part the next day. We received it the following Tuesday (Mon. was a holiday). My 16 yr. old son replaced the part within 15 minutes. It was a piece of cake-actually it was a pizza!!
First and foremost we turned off the breaker, a very important thing to remember!! Then he removed the two screws that hold the element in place. He then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires...and reconnected the new ones and put screws back in. Voila!! Ours was stillll under warranty, but we would have had to pay the service call and labor costs. Our do it yourself was much cheaper and faster!!

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.

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

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 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 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.
Thank you!
