CustomerAnthony from Crownsville MD

Lower oven lower electric 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.

Lower bake heating element burned out.

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.

CustomerTheresa from Belfair WA

Oven heating elements were burned out

I unplugged the oven then, one element at a time, I removed the screws and pulled the connecter out of the sleeve. This was the hardest part as it is a tight fit. Then, reverse the order to replace the element. The upper elements were more work because of the brackets used to hold them in place. But this only took alittle more time to remove and replace each one. When I plugged the oven back in and turned it on everything worked great! Back to baking!

CustomerJoseph from Boerne TX

Lower oven element burn out.

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.

Lower element burnt out.

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.

Lower oven burner caught fire and burned out.

Took 5 minutes... I did it in my pajamas... after a heavy duty margarita!

Here's a tip: start from behind.
