I followed the instructions given to me in the package and all went well. I cut the old wires off the burnt terminal block, stripped the wires, installed the wire nuts with the shrink rap, installed the new terminal block and burner. The new burner is working great! Thanks

Wanted to replace the elements and burner bowls for cosmetic reasons. All parts were easily plugged in or set into place. Absolutely no help was needed. The stove looks like new and works even better.
A very easy fix-Unplug stove, remove back plate, remove non-working element and drip pan, unscrew terminal plug and push it through to back of unit to have room to work, cut wires to old terminal plug approx 4" from plug, inspect remaining wires for damage and if all is OK, strip old wires and wires of new plug approx 1/2", twist together and cap with wire nuts, cover with shrink wrap and warm with heat gun, push newly replaced terminal plug back into stove top, screw to terminal plug holder, replace back plate, plug in and replace drip pan and NEW element. Worked like a charm!
The only hard part about putting in a new terminal block (and this time I had to replace the burner too, because that fried too) is stripping the stove wires, because that thermal insulation is very hard to get off. Otherwise, it's simple. In this case, I had already replaced this one (sigh), so had already cut & stripped the wires, so it was all easy. Frankly, the sane thing to do is buy a new stove, but wife is too cheap.
Lined up the prongs and slid it right in, took 30 seconds.
I am the worst handy man, but I have to say, this was so easy. Web site was well designed to find the exact part I needed. The coils pull out of the blocks with moderate pressure. Stove top lifts up like a car hood and rests on little arms. The blocks unscrew from retaining holes with a few turns of a nut driver. Take the back of the stove off, a matter of 8 screws and two minutes. Poke the new wires through following the old wires, pull the spade terminals loose by hand or needle-nose pliers and replace with new. Polarity indeed does not matter. Incredibly fast. Took me a quarter hour. (We will not speak of the extra hour of cleaning areas no scrub brush had ever seen).
The terminal bloctk silver attachment did not fit our stove. We had to use the old one and take off a little of the nipple that snapped it into place .used a bench grinder for that.The rest was easy. Used a heat gun paint stripper to shrink the shrink wrap,Saved a big repair bill.
Did it By Hand Your Shipment Time Excellant Order it Mon. Received it Wed. Thank You
I pulled out the old burner - put the new one in and I was done. No tools required.The first burner I received from PartSelect was warped. I called on Friday morning to see about returning it and ordering a new one. The CSR was very helpful and I was totally surprised to have the replacement arrive the very next day since I didn't ask for a Saturday delivery. I will definitely use PartSelect again.
Everything was very easy: identifying the right part was very easy on the website, the part came quicker than I expected, and my wife replaced the stove element before I even got home from work. She just pulled the old one out like she would to clean the top of the stove, and put the new one back in. Have had several awesome cups of coffee since the replacement.
First, I removed the burner from the box and plastic bag. Second, I pushed the burner into the socket and that was it. I also want to comment on how easy the ordering process was. I ljust love this website. All you have to do is type in the model number and up comes all of the parts associated with the appliance. My order shipped the next day and I had unit within 2 days. Also, the part cost $42.00 with shipping. My local parts place was $48.00, so I wound up saving $6.00 and did not have to leave my home to buy it. I will definetly use this site again.
I simply pushed the new burner into hardware. I then tested it to see if it works. . .
I pulled the old burner out and slid the new one in it's place. Turned on the eye to make sure it worked. Felt heat in a few seconds and turned off.
I just pulled out the old element and put the new one in and replaced all of the burner bowls .these are the only ones I found that fit my stove
ordered the parts and then replaced old with new.
