Oven would broil but wouldn't bake

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!!

Unplug the oven, open the door, take the screws out of the back wall that hold the small brackets which hold the element. Pull the element out of the wall, and pull a little of the wires with it to grasp easily. There are square nut screws, so you need the appropriate tool. Unplug the old element from the wires, and plug the new one in. Screw everything back together! This was a very easy fix!

For an electrical appliance, it doesn't get easier then this, this was real easy.

I removed both baking racks, unscrewed two screws holding the old element in place, pulled out element about 1 1/2 inches, removed the wires off of each end of the element, then replaced with new element in reverse order. That was it. Had time to play 18 holes of Golf!

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 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.

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.

Bake element wouldn't heat.

The problem was caused by the owner placing an aluminum catch pan under the bake element. The failure of the element was where it was in contact with the pan. The repair involved removing two screws pulling out the element to access the wires. The connectors were the pull off type so I just disconnected the wires from the old element and placed them on the new element, pushed the element back in place and replaced the two retaining screws. I suggested that the owner not place anything in contact with the bake element. Be sure to up-plug the stove plug before attempting repair.

Oven wouldn't heat, but broiler would

  • Difficulty: Easy

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.
