The hardest part was the two screws (they were baked on I guess). We turned off the breaker, put paper towels in the oven carefully sprayed wd40 on the screw. Waited about 5 minutes unscrewed the two screws, gently pulled out the plate. When you pull the two wires out there are two contacts. Look at the direction their on. Slide them off put in the new unit to the contacts, gently slide back in and put the two screws back. It was really that easy and I had no idea what I was doing. No need to pull oven out can all be done for the front side.

I turned off the breaker and unscrewed the element. Removed the plug connection and once I got the correct part, we plugged it in, screwed it back into the oven wall and done! I am a single female and was able to replace the heating element in a short amount of time with assistance from my 16 year old son!! I was very surprised at how easy it was to repair. The key is to get the correct part the 1st time!
Switch off the breaker or unplug.The screws were in tight so make sure your philips bite is new so you do not strip. Pulled the element out and held the wires in place with a clothes pin so not to slip back in the stove.Connect and cooked up pizza for dinner.Very easy
First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and was about to disconnect the two wires. It was a bit hard to pull out the wires by hand, but I got some WD-40 and pliers and it was easy. Hooked up and replaced and voila. It was done. Saved me a new $1,500 stove. I wish I knew that the lamp only needed to be unscrewed and not the whole unit replaced.
I first killed the power to the oven by switching off the circuit breaker and then unplugging it from the wall. With the oven pulled out, I removed the back cover panel to disconnect the lower (bake) element power leads from the broken element. I removed the two screws on the metal plate that attached the element unit to the oven and removed the whole bake element assembly from the oven. I then inserted the new element assembly into the oven and reattached the screws. The next step was to reattach the power leads to the new element. It was then time to put the back cover panel back on and plug the oven back in. I then pushed the oven back into place and switched the circuit breaker back on. Finally, I tested the new element to see if it operated properly by setting a temperature and observed the temperature on a separate oven thermometer used for baking. Your exploded views of the oven helped me plan and execute this repair. Good feature that would be even better if the resolution was a bit better.
Removed 2 screws from mounting plate in base element.Disconnected 2 wires from bake element. Installed new bake element in reverse.
Removed two screws-put burner in-pit screws back in! Turned over on and it worked!!!
Had to use wd-40 to get the old part loose (oven is over 15 years old) and used pliers to pull apart from the oven. Replaced with the new part and works great. . . Once I used the wd-40 to loosen, it was super easy.
I read up about the repair on the internet and what it entailed, thought I could do it. So followed directions from the internet after looking up Ammana, model number and serial number, and ordered the part from Part Select.com. It arrived two days later, was really impressed with their business handling of it.I paid particular attention to disconnecting the power and pulling the plug out of the wall as double insurance to not getting electrocuted.The Installation was quite simple, just pull the old one out and put the new one in. I took note of how the old one came out, and connected the new one in the same fashion, and it works wonderfully, just heated right up. It was a good experience.
E. G. First we turned off the circuit to the range. Then with a flash light to see we removed the two screws that hold the element in place. We then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. . . Then connected the two wires to new element and put the ends back into opening and replaced the two screws that hold the element in place. The hardest part was getting to the back of the oven for an 82 year old and a 94 year old but we got it working again!.
removed 2 philips screws holding element, un plugged element. new element arrive next day, insalled in less then 1 min. turned on, setoven for 375 pizza in 20 min later
Very simple fix. I pulled the stove away from the wall and unplugged from outlet. Open the oven door and remove the oven racks. I used a phillips screw driver to remove the 2 screws holding the element and then pulled out. There were 2 wires attached to the element, those just pull off. Just reverse the process with the new element and you are good to go.
Quick as I could with bad knee and empty stomach. Pizza was waiting to be cooked. . The young lady that took my order needs a bonus, exceptional extra effort on her part to get me the part. Very pleased with her attitude and service, hope you can track her down.
Unscrewed the 2 screws in the back of the element. Disconnected the unit from the bake of the oven, replaced the two ends of the new element and screwed in the 2 screws. Oven works great! Took less than 5 minutes to complete.Thank you for the FAST delivery!!
First, I turned off the power to the house at the breaker box. Then I removed the broken heating element through the front oven door. I hoped this would work as it seemed from other reviews that some people pulled the oven out removed the back panel in order to access the element. I unscrewed the plate and then gently pulled the element out. I had a little trouble "unplugging" the element. When I tried pulling, it seemed they were stuck tight. Turns out you have to sort of jiggle the connectors and then they easily pull apart. Had I figured this out initially, the repair would have been under 15 minutes. Attaching the new element to the connectors, rethreading the wiring back into the holes, and then rescrewing on the back plate too the oven wall took just minutes. Easy peasy. So glad I spent $40 to fix rather then $500+ for a new oven!
