watched how to video so was prepared for a standard install. removed screws and coverplate...disconnected wires...threaded new element thru coverplate...reconnected wires...reinstalled coverplate with screws. disconnecting and reconnecting wires took some thought and patience, but wasn't rocket science.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This element is shaped like a B. The straight line part of the B, which is closest to the back part of the oven, doesn't light up. At first I thought it was a defective part. My husband is the cook and I never realized this. This fact isn't indicated in the instruction booklet which came with the oven. My sister has the same oven and she didn't realize it doesn't light up either. I looked up installation instructions on You Tube and although I was very nervous, it was easy to install. It's a little awkward because the wires are in the back of the oven so have a flashlight handy.
Hiring a repair man was going to be expensive, and I saw the part was cheap and others had said this was an easy job to do. I figured I'd give it a shot even though I have very little experience repairing things and there was no help coming from my husband. I followed the instruction of others, unscrewing two screws and pulling the broken element out. The metal that capped the ends of the broken piece needed to be removed. One came off easily. The other took a bit of wiggling to get off. A mistake I made was, by accident, one of the wires coming from behind the stove got pushed back through the hole in the oven wall.. I needed to fish it out with tweezers, but thankfully, that was easily retrieved. Once I put the caps on the new piece, I had some trouble reaching the plate to screw it back into place. I removed the oven door, which helped a lot, but then found it a little tricky to get the oven door back on. Despite the little set backs, I still did it myself in around 15 minutes. I'm delighted to have my oven back without paying a fortune!
Our Maytag electric range has a small oven on top that doubles as a toaster, and food warmer. The lower one is a big oven suitable for Thanksgiving Turkey Etc. It is also a broiler as is the top oven. The top one had the bottom element burn out about 5 months back as well. Now the bottom element on the lower oven had burned out as well. The oven has some age on it, but when I looked to replace it I saw it would be approx $1800.00 - $2000.00 for a new one. I knew the elements were replacable and thought if I should call out the lonely guy, the Maytag repairman. Nope, I pulled the stove out disconnected the 220 power supply. I got the Model number off the back stamped info plate. I looked up Maytags parts on Google and the first one was PartSelect.com. They have easy fill-in spaces for Model and Make and a schematic of the oven and all it's pieces are visually displayed. I found the part I needed and ordered. It arrived in two days, very reasonable, very fast shipping. Pulling out the old elements required only a battery operated screw driver, a flash light, and a magnetic dish to keep track of the screws.The removal of the rear panel takes about 10 sheet metal screws. I marked the leads I disconnected by color with a felt tip pen on the back. I disconnected and removed the aforementioned clips, cleaned inside the oven and placed the new element in, reconnected everything on the back as it had been according to my color assignments, replaced the back with battery operated screwdriver from the magnetic dish, reconnected the 220V power supply. Done, in about 30 minutes; I saved a bunch over a new Stove and at least a couple hundred over a service call. Easy and satisfying.
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.Installed new element . Connected two wires pushed in place install the two screws.Done....
I removed the two screws that hold the element in place, moved it out to expose connecting wires, then removed wires and put in new element.
only 2 screws held the element in place pulled the wires and replaced with the identical part very easy to do and thanks for having the part available
This was the easiest repair I have ever done. The element was shipped right away and I received it in about 3 or 4 days. 2 screws were removed and reinserted to replace the heating element.
It's a straightforward remove and replace with two screws. The lower element is most likely to go with years of baking when bake pans overflow on to the element, It can be checked with an electrical probe for resistance and continuity. If the oven is preheating and the lower element doesn't heat that is definitive. We had it checked under the extended warranty but the tech wasn't thorough enough. The extended warranty is of questional value.
I removed the two screws retaining the heating element with a phillips head screw driver. Then I pulled the element forward to expose the wire connectors, and disconnected the two wires. I connected the two wires to the new heating element, and secured the new heating element with the two screws.
This was really easy. I took out the lower oven racks. Most important - Turned off the breaker to the stove. Unscrewed the element and popped it out. Put in the new one and screwed it back in. Turned on the breaker and I was ready to go.
Took 5 minutes... I did it in my pajamas... after a heavy duty margarita! Here's a tip: start from behind.
The reapir was very easy. I just opened my stove and uncrewed two bolts and removed the old heating element and screwed in the new heating element The job was simple.
Removed two screws, unplugged damanged element, plugged in new element and replace two screws. That's it. It works great now. EZ to repair.
