My brother is a licensed electrician, so the job was relatively easy for him. The pieces of insulation were pre-cut to fit, so there was no trimming involved. He tilted the oven over on its back to replace the piece of insulation under the oven. Removed the metal panel between the storage drawer and oven bottom, removed the soiled insulation and wiped everything down with vinegar. Placed the new insulation and reinstalled the metal panel and drawer. Removed the oven/range top and again removed the soiled insulation, wiped everything down and installed the new insulation (this piece of insulation was the wrap around one that goes under the range top - across the top of the oven and down both sides). Replaced the oven top, then did the back panel - this one was the most time consuming, due to the need to disconnect some of the wiring and sensors, as well as having to loosen the panel where the control knobs are located in order to remove the inner panel to get to the insulation. The insulation was precut to fit around the oven light bulb, so just had to make sure we installed it right side up :). Have used the oven several times since and no more smell!!

The oven element had a short from normal wear and tear on one side that started showing itself as a brighter "hotspot" on the element prior to its failure. Once failure occurred, it was accompanied by lots of sparking like a fireworks sparkler, and then just quit working. It left a

De-energize oven power supply breaker. Using a 1/4" nut driver, the two retaining screws were removed and the element was loose to pull out of the rear oven wall. It was connected to wires via spade connectors at each end. After removing spade connectors, the old element easily lifts out of the oven. Place new element into oven, connect spade connector wires onto element, and the screw at each end of the element with the 1/4" nut driver and I was back in business. Worked and fit perfectly. Re-energize oven breaker and viola!!

Burned out bake element

The part arrived in three days. I used a nut driver to remove the two sheet metal screws attaching the element to the rear of the oven. I removed the wires from the spade terminals and removed the old element. Installing the new element was as easy as pushing the two wires onto the new element's spade terminals and reinstalling the two sheet metal screws. I then let the oven preheat to 350 and left it on about 5 minutes after that to burn any contaminates off before using the oven. That took longer than the replacement process!

Screwed up by not shutting breaker. Shorted out 3 switches. Thought i could get away without shutting breaker that was a costly error. No problem replacing the 3 switches and element switch. Took about 1/2 an hour.Always shut breaker before doing any electrical repairs.

I use Youtube as a resource for instructional videos. It helps in most cases. This is as simple as you can get so probably not necessary for this repair. I unplugged the oven first. I unscrewed the the element brackets from the inside of the oven, pulled out the element until I could disconnect the wires from either end. I connected the new element to the wires and screwed the brackets to the back of the oven. I plugged the oven back in and tested the repair.

Got new surface element. Unplugged the old element, plugged in the new surface element, turned the stove top on, and it worked! Took less than 5 minutes and I'm pleased! Will probably or the same two so all my elements are nice and new. Great experience.

Two small screws removed from element frame,slid element out. With needle nose pliers, I slid terminals loose from element. Then I replaced the new element in reverse procedure. Quick delivery made things even better.

Burner would stay on and the hi-temp safety limit switch is all that would shut it off.

Cut the range power. Removed the top rear panel. Removed the two burner switch screws. Pulled one wire at a time off the old switch and put it on the new switch. Since the terminal location did not match, it was critical to notice the terminal designation on the old and match it to the new switch. Ex., H1 to H1; H2 to H2. Voila! It worked the first time.

Large element would only heat on high.

The infinite switch arrived promptly and while not a perfect match fit the range fine. It took me a few extra minutes to figure out the wiring configuration, but it was fairly easy. I was very pleased with Parts Select's service.

I went to partselect.com, watched the video, found the part, but only after calling the phone number, and ordered on the phone. The part arrived within 4 days. I unplugged the stove, removed the racks, unscrewed the nuts at the back plates, pulled the element out, disconnected one side at a time, bending the wires so they would stay pulled out, removed the bad element, connected the new element, slid it back in the holes, screwed the nuts through the new plates, replaced the racks, plugged the stove in, and done. Very easy!

I would have been able to effect the change-out in 10 minutes, but ran into a little problem. I knew that the connections were slip-on, so I tried to be careful not to pull too hard and disconnect them. However, I did not know that where the connection is made is at a 90 degree angle from the burner. So, not knowing this, I disconnected one of the electrical lines. Not good!. However, I figured it could not be too far from the hole, so I got a pair of forceps I use for my model railroading, and fished around an got a hold of it. Just be aware that the connection may NOT be straight line, and you will have to tip the burner up about to a 45 degree angle to get the connector and wire out. Next time I'll know!!!
