CustomerTimothy from Cordova TN

Bake element cracked on its own

Flipped the breaker. Removed shelf, Find the right size nut socket, unscrew the two screws, pull the element out a little bit, disconnect the wires (on pretty tight), pull out element, clean out any mess in the oven, compare element with new one to make sure its the same size and such, connect wires to new element, replace screws, flip breaker back, turn on for a few minutes to make sure it works. Piece of cake.

Oven took 30 minutes to get to 380 degrees-no hotter

First I searched this site and read about the repairs - which made me feel like my husband could do it with ease. Then he removed two screws inside the oven, removed the broken element (didn't know it was broken til removed) and replaced the new one - just like that! The real key was being able to read how it was for other people who had already done it. That's the only reason I'm submitting my storey. Thanks

The bake element split

This was so easy I should be a repairman! Turned off power at the breaker, used socket to unscrew two hex head screws, pulled out element slowly from the back of oven wall - enough to expose the wires about 3". Used pliers to remove clips from terminals, put new element in, pushed on new terminal clips, fed wires and terminals back through the two holes, replaced the hex head screws, turned breaker on and wallah! My wife was happy! That's a good thing.

Broken oven element.

DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS REPAIR UNTIL THE RANGE IS UNPLUGGED AND THE CIRCUIT BREAKER IS OFF!!!!!!

Very easy repair, but, either there is a minor amount of current flowing through the element at all times, or the off switch wasn't working when I started. didn't turn the breaker off, after I removed the nuts, as I was pulling the element to reveal the terminals, the terminals arc'd on the oven wall. BIG SPARKS!

After I turned the breaker off and started again. No problems.

Bake element bad

Inside oven, remove two screws that hold element to back wall, pull element out three or so inches to get to wire clip connections, unclip wires, remove bad element, put new element in in reverse order of taking out bad element, just that simple. Also this site was so easy to use, plus the shipping time was unbelieveably short, even a company service man couldn't have been that quick, or as reasonable. Thanks a bunch!!

Broiler element melted

pulled range out, unplugged unit, took out 7 screws, unplugged the elements, reinstalled elements, replugged, and completed with the 7 screws back in place. The 30 minute time was replacing both the broiler and bake elements. The parts were also delivered in a very timely manner. Could not have been more pleased and was very cost effective.

Heating element had shorted out and broken.

Unscrewed the heating element from the inside back of the oven and removed the housing cover from the back of the stove to access the terminals. (The unit had arked and fused the terminal to the connector.) Installed the new unit and replaced the housing cover on the back and screwed the unit into the back of the oven. Works like a charm.
