The broil element broke.

We removed the two very tiny screws that held the plate through which the element was connected to the wiring. It was extremely difficult to do so, because the screws were so tiny. Our socket set did not have such a small attachment, and we had to use an adjustable wrench. Once we accomplished that, we unhooked the old broil element from the wires. At that point, the wires snapped back into the wall. There was almost no slack to pull the wires back out into the oven so that we could hook the new broil element up. It took more than an hour of maneuvering before we were able to get hold of enough of the wires so that we could grab onto each one and hook up the new broil element. One we did that, it was easy to place the broil element back into its brackets.

A very easy job to perform thanks to right parts from PartSelect.

I turned off the electricity to the oven.and removed the door.
I removed the 2 screws with a nut driver holding the element in place, pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires with pliers , clamped the 2 wires together to keep them from falling in the back of liner.
When the new element was received the procedure was reversed. Electricity was restored and the oven works perfectly.

Lower oven bake element burned out

I should note that my first order to PartsSelect.com
was made on-line and that I selected the wrong part by comparing the burned-out element to the web site picture. When I received that part, I phoned and quickly corrected my mistake, ordered the correct part and obtained return instructions.

With the correct part in hand, I removed the two screws holding the element in place, pulled the element out a short distance to disconnect the two wires and removed the burned-out element. Reversing this procedure I installed the new bake element and completed the job by checking out the oven heating. The hardest part of all this was reaching over the oven door and stretching to unscrew and screw the necessary screws.

Bake element burned out

My husband (a retired tool & die maker) easily removed the old bake element after first turning off the circuit. He cleaned up the burned salt that we had used to try to put the "fire" out but finally just shut down the circuit. Then just as easily istalled the new element. Thanks to your quick service, we were only without the use of the oven for a day and a half!

Replaced bake element

Needed to drill two new holes for fastening the element to the oven wall. Change in design. Enlarged the holes in the spade connections since I was unable to find smaller bolts than 4-40.
I would suggest to make the holes in the spade connections larger.
The change out was not a problem.

Broken baking (not broiling) element

I shut off the power at the circuit breaker. I loosened the screws securing the baking element to the back wall. I then pulled out the baking element toward me and found the wire leads bolted using self-tapping screws to the original element. Since the holes on the mounting tabs did not take the old screws, I had to drill out the holes on the tabs of the replacement element. After securely bolting the leads to either terminal on the element, I had to drill two holes on the back wall for the mounting plate of the new element. Then I used the cordless drill with the Philips bit to drive in stainless steel self-tapping screws (not zip screws) to secure the element to the back wall. I turned on the power at the circuit breaker and reset the clock (mechanical).
