Burned out bake (lower) element

I just followed the video. Unplug the stove, undo two screws holding the element, pull it out to get to the terminals, pull off the electrical terminals, connect the terminals to the new element, push back in the new element, replace the screws, plug in the stove and set the clock. It did not take even five minutes from start to finish. You will need a flashlight to see as the oven light doesn't come on while the stove is unplugged!

My oven went out the day before Christmas. After calling around and getting high quotes from several 24/7 repairmen I decided to do the repair myself. I searched YouTube and found the video from PartSelect on how to repair my oven and decided to order my part. Due to the holidays there was a shipping delay but once I got the replacement part it was easy to repair. Just make sure that you are aware of the tools needed to do your repair. You save a LOT of time that way. My repair probably would have taken me only 30 mins but it took over 2 hrs due to 2 trips to the hardware store.

to install the element was somewhat easy but turn the oven on there is no heat either on the upper or replaced element the light on the range shows it workings so it no doubt has an internal problem that will require a electrician in order to locate the problem due to the noise that i heard when the element went out-i am not surprised that it needs other work

This was an easy repair. I was going to call my appliance guy when I read how easy it was to replace on this site I decided to try it myself instead. It was that easy. I removed the old element and installed the new one in under 15 minutes. The video showed how easy it was that I had to try it myself and I am glad I did. I saved a bunch.

First, I looked on you tube for a quick video on how to do the job. Next, I removed the old element by simply removing the two screws. Be careful not to let the wires fall back through the holes. Next, just plug in the new element and put the screws back. Simple! Last time the element broke I paid a repairman $185!!!!!! With shipping this time it cost me about $40!
