Baking element not heating

First off, because of weather delays, it took FedEx 8 days to deliver part, finally had to drive 3 miles out our road to meet driver.
The connectors were females on the new part as were the connectors in the range. Had to cut off oven connectors and replace with males. Fortunately, I had the connectors (not supplied) and knew how to attach them.

CustomerCarolyn from Los Alamos NM

My heating element in my oven caught fire and burnt up.

I ordered the only part that looked like it would fit. 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. But the new replacement had the wrong ends to fit right. I was going to email you back to see if there were other options for me, when a friend came by and said he would just replace the oven connecting ends and then it would work. Luckily he had extra little ends at home, came over and replaced the ends, cutting the old ones off of the oven side. He wire stripped the wire, attached the new ends and crimped and then reattatched the whole heating element. Without his know-how, I would have had to have a repair man come and do the same thing for me, or go buy a new stove.....but it is simple when you know how!! It would have been helpful to me, to have the description of the ends of the new element I was buying..... whether it was male or female... but it is fixed now, thanks to my friend. A steak dinner was cheaper than a repair man!!!!

Bake element melted in two---first time I'd seen that.

After removing two screws, I pulled the bake element free from the oven's female electrical connections---only to find the new element had female connectors, too. Nevertheless, I cut the male connectors off the old bake element and used them as a splice (of sorts). Then installing the new bake element was a piece of cake, which I can make now thanks to PartSelect.com.

CustomerR A from Albuquerque NM

Bake element went out, wouldn't work

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.

CustomerED N from ALLEN TX

Element burned out and wouldn't heat

I followed the instructions that were posted on the web site for the replacement of the element. I found everything exactly as described in the procedure. I disconnected the two screws that held the old element, removed the old element, inserted the new element and replaced the screws. I turned the oven control on and the element heated up. Everything has been working just fine.

CustomerPhilip from Plainview NY

Bake element was burned out

Turned off power at breaker box. Removed two screws from the old bake element on rear of oven wall. Pulled out bake element from back of oven so wires were exposed (about 3-4 inches). By hand, removed the wire connector from each side of the element (wiggle it loose).

The part I purchased was exactly as described on the PartSelect website (i.e., it had the correct connections - female - on the bake element). The part arrived in 2 days in perfect condition. I definitely will use PartSelect again.

CustomerJim from Prospect KY

Oven wouldn't heat

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. That is when I notice that the new element had a female connector and so did my wires comeing out of the stove. I took the old elements male end off (with a grinder). The mail end was long enough to use it connect both female end.
