FIgured it was either a bad heating element or a realy expensive repair so I purchased a replacement element to rule out the simple and inexpensive possibility. Pulled oven out from wall and disconnected power supply. Removed retaining bracket from top of oven, two screws that held in heating element, disconnected from fittings, replaced with new element, and reattached screws and retaining bracket. Plugged in power supply, tested lower oven (it worked just fine) pushed oven back against the wall. Threw away the old element and packaging. Job done.

I just bought my first condo and sure enough something broke in my oven. I thought "Oh great - I'll need to buy a new one..." After some research and a friend's advice - I was assured that I only needed to replace the broiler element. After researching the issue I googled replacement parts which led me to this web-site. I was amazed how easy and inexpensive it was for me to replace the part. The directions were easy, simple, and spot-on! The instructions that were provided were easy to follow. I also utilized YouTube instructions as well for additional visual guidance. The shipping was super fast and the element was packaged very well. Thank you so much!
Shipped on timely manner,I will order again from Part Select, installing was a 15 minute job, that what I did, 1 unplugged stove, 2) removed 4 screws, (2 on top bracket and 2 on back) , 3) slide unit out couple inches enough to disconnected the wires from each end of unit and removed old part, installed new unit by reconnecting end wires, pushing unit slowly toward back of oven until wires find it's right position, set it back in place with the 2 screws on top bracket and 2 screws on back, done!!
not to offend anybody but what i learned on prior posts helped alot..1. remove unit and unplug.2. remove door by opening to 45 degree angle and lifting door face towards you.3. remove back panel to unit.e.4.unscrew burner element from back inside of oven.5.gently pry clip off each off burner element from rear of unit. Pull gently towards you.6.unscrew support from inside oven.7. remove old element and just reverse directions to reinstall.
removed screws and disconnected the wires removed element and did the replacement less than 15 minutes, and cost less than locally by 25.00 and received part the next day. EXCELLENT
The toughest part was seeing the two screws in the dark rear of the oven, so a good flashlight with adjustable beam is helpful. After removing the pots and pan drawer from it's tracks, take the opportunity to clean out that space underneath the drawer when you unplug the oven. Once that was done, I removed the bracket screws holding the broken broiler element on the roof of the oven and the two screws holding the element in the rear of the oven. It's an uncomfortable reach so, setting a flashlight on the open over door helped me see what I was doing. The element slides right out of the holes from with in the insulation behind the oven's rear panel. Each side is connected to a wire pin that may need a good tug with pliers to slip the wire clip off the old element end. The new element connected right to the old wire clips with ease. You may have to jiggle the element end as you poke it back through the hole into the insulation where it came from. The element ends screwed right back into it's original position with the old screws. I slipped the roof bracket over the new element and reattached to the oven roof. I plugged the oven back in, replaced the drawer on it's tracks, tested the broiler and it works like a charm. Total time 35 minutes.
1) Unplugged the electrical cord and removed the oven door (only when easy); and, jockeyed the oven into better working area.2) Removed about 9 screws holding rear sheetmetal backing plate to disconnect each of 2 electrical wires from the old element.3) Removed 2 screws holding element to back of oven and 2 screws from small bracket supporting end of element to top of oven.4) Replacement element was severely damaged. It was at the very bottom of a box 20 by 15 by 15.5 inches high with the large continuous bubble wrap stacked only on top. Each of the wire ends were sharply bent; one almost 180 deg. pointing in the opposite direction, and the other about 120 deg. The element itself was about 4-5 inches out of square. Using two large needlenose pliers I carefully bent each wire back to its proper place. Next I carefully exerted pressure on the element to gradually form it back to as near its correct shape as possible. (Only the inside of the shipping box showed the signs of possible damage.)5) Installation- The element, from inside the oven, was placed back through the two holes in the rear of the oven and secured with 2 screws. 6) The bracket supporting the front of the element was slid onto the element and attached to the top of the oven.7) Attached the 2 electrical oven wires to the 2 element wires, making sure there was good clearance to prevent any short circuit, plugged the oven cord in to 230volts, and checked it out with power to the broiler to give myself some confidence that the damaged wires would not quickly break. It seemed to work and I unplugged the oven.8) Reinstalled the backing plate with the original screws, plugged oven back in, and moved the oven back to its place and replaced its door. It is working and my wife is cooking.
Power turned off. Door of the oven lifted off. Four screws removed, old element pulled out to reveal electrical connectors. Wires easily removed, and element discarded. New element connected to the two conductors, four screws installed and the job was completed.Very easy. Took about 10 minutes.
