VERY SIMPLE. Two screws inside the overn hold the element in place, remove them - pull the element forwad to expose the connections, one on each end. Simply unplug the element from the connections to remove the old one, plug the new element into the connections, push the element back into place, and re connect the two screw's that hold it in place. That's it. 5 minutes tops. You guys were great as far as getting the part, quickly and easily. Thanks!
removed the 2 screws connecting the element to the back wall of the oven. then slid the element towards me about 3 inches, and that exposed the wires ,which were terminated on to the element. I pulled the wires off the element, and removed it. I placed the new element in the oven,terminated the wires by pushing the connectors on to the element, slid the element towards the back of the oven , pushing the wire connections into the rear wall, until the attached flange ,on the element rested against the wall. I then terminated the screws to hold the element in place. Turned on the oven and made some biscuits. All went well
unscrewed back plate (one screw each side) pulled gently to expose connections. NOTE: BIG MISTAKE - forgot to shut off power!!!! I blew the clock which now needs to be replaced (in process). Back to the element though - connections very easy. One side had to be pulled from behind (used needle nose plyers to pull through opening). Connected element both sides gently pushed back in to position and replaced screws. I'll let you know how the clock replacement goes!
Here's the way to do it, according to the "Describe how you did the repair" prompt: "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..."Right, however, I shoulda-woulda-coulda listened to my fellow DYI'ers on this site about c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y feeding the wiring out of the rear hole.But, first, turn off the power. Secondly, make sure the power is off at the breaker. I did and that worked fine. However, as I pulled the connecting end of the bake element out, bummer! The spade electrical fitting popped off and retreated into a sea of insulation! Future solution? Like The Man suggested, Carefully, gently pull the element out and grab the connecting wire, pull it out to get a little slack and attach a clothespin to the end, so it won't back out and disappear! Then, detach the broken element, reverse the steps with the new bad boy and start cookin'!If you need to pull the stove out, as we did, to "get at" the back of the oven and the retreated wire, move the oven out on a parallel height platform or boards as it exits the opening. Note carefully as to how much slack there is on the electrical connection, typically armored cable or another, er, "homebrew" electrical solution. Take your time, as the pie will wait.
first i disconnected the power then removed the back cover then tested the element after removing the wires and found the element to be bad , did some research found parts select and happly found our part and ordered it .part came in removed back cover unhooked two wires took out two screws , removed and replaced , thank you parts select. every one needs to know about you.
After removing the screws holding in the heating element and pulling out. I quickly realized I had a problem. The connectors on the wires and the connectors on the element were the same(female). So I had to ct the wire connectors off and put the correct type (male) connector on. If not for this the repair would have taken 5 minutes including time to pull stove away from wall and unplug and then plug back in and push to wall
This is a very easy repair. But, make sure you first unplug the stove. Simply turning off the oven is not good enough. My wire connectors were reversed compared to the new element so I had to change the ones attached to the stove from female to male connectors. I bought 18 gauge male connectors, cut the old ones off and crimped on the new ones, attached the new element, pushed it back into place, put the two screws back in place and we were back in business.
I removed the 2 screws that hold the element in place. (located in the back of the oven). I then pulled the 2 wires about 3 inches & disconnected the 2 wires (1 red & 1 yellow).
I removed the two screws that attach the element to the back of the oven. Then I pulled the element out a few inches and disconnected each of the wires attached to the element. These were easy to disconnect because they were quick-disconnect spade type connectors.Note the easiest part was the ordering and delivered the very next day WOW
A web search led me to Parts Select. Two days later my bake element was installed and my oven was again in bake mode.I'm a 75 yr. old grandmother and installed it myself so that should tell one how easy it is.
Before beginning I made sure electrical current wasn't running to the element. (NOTE: CHECKING FOR A VOLTAGE DROP ACROSS THE ELEMENT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH). The safest way to do this is to unplug the oven, because otherwise you're going to get a nasty surprise as soon as you touch the exposed wire.I removed the two screws that anchor the element to the back of the oven. Then I pulled the element out a few inches and disconnected each of the wires attached to the element. These were easy to disconnect because they were quick-disconnect spade type connectors.Next I got rid of the old element and tried to replace it with the new one, only to notice that the new element and the wires in the rear of the oven both had the female end of the spade connector. Like a total bimbo I'd either ordered the wrong part or just failed to notice what the connectors were supposed to be.Instead of de-soldering the spade connectors on the element or the oven wires, I made two "spade adaptors" to make the connections compatible. For this I bought a package of spade connectors from Radio Shack and cut two pieces of 16 gauge rebare wire about 1/2" long. I soldered a male spade connector to the end of each rebar piece and then insulated it thoroughly with electrical tape to keep it from grounding out. (NOTE: DO NOT USE DUCT TAPE FOR THIS, ONLY INSULATING ELECTRICAL TAPE WILL DO). The result was two miniature pieces of wire, each with a male spade connector on the end. For lack of a better name, these were my spade adaptors.When the two spade adaptors were ready, I connected them to the female ends of the wires in the oven, then to the female spade connectors on the new element. I wrapped all the connections in electrical tape to prevent accidental grounding. (NOTE: ELECTRICAL TAPE MELTS SO I KEPT IT FAR AWAY FROM THE ELEMENT.)Finally I shoved the wires, my spade adaptors, and the ends of the element back into the holes at the rear of the oven and screwed the element back into place using the original screws. After that I turned the oven back on.Most of the time was spent making the run to Radio Shack and trying to explain to the guy at the front desk what a quick disconnect spade connector is.
Easy in and out, just two screws and two wires. Only additional work was that my oven had female spades on the wires and so did the new element. Took a couple of extra minutes to change out the spades on the oven connections. Then it was slide the connectors together, re-attach the two holding screws and the oven was fully functional. First replacement element came in bent, Parts Select shipped and replaced it immediately!
Removed screws on each end of element, pulled off spade connectors, did everything in reverse for new element.The only notable fact was that the old element was hot, as in carrying AC current, despite the stove being off and it being broken, and I found out the usual way.
the heating element burnt out the Monday of Thanksgiving week. I received the part on Tues and we repaired the stove on Wednesday. Since this was the second time we had to replace the heating element, it was much easier the second time around. We removed the old element and installed the new one in less than 30 minutes. It was an easy fix. The new element evenly bakes the food now.
