CustomerBrad from Bedford, KY

Bake element burned out, bunt like a sparkler.

Ordered the part on Friday, got it on Saturday, very impressive. Be sure to unplug the range or disconnect the power at the breaker box before any repairs are started.

The lower (Bake) element is held in by 2 screws. Remove them and gently pull out the element to remove the power wires connected to the element. These wires are very short and there is not much room in which to work. After having removed the wire connectors one slipped from my fingers and went back in the small opening in the back of the oven where the element is inserted. It took some time to fish out the wire. Not wanting to slide out the range I used some surgical forcepts I happen to have grab the wire ( handy to clip wires or compontents in place for some delicate repairs). Its all blind and the opening is very small plus the insulation must be pushed back to gain access. Anyway I managed to grab the wire, attached both wires to the element, replaced the plate and screws holding the element in place, all finished. Worked great. Other ranges I have owned provided a socket to plug in the element, I guess the bottom line gets in the way of quality.. Being 60 years old the worst part of this job is the getting down on my knees to do the work and getting back up again.

CustomerLisa from San Jose, CA

Bake element burned up and broke into pieces

First, we turned off the electricity for the whole house, since we didn't want to pull the unit away from the wall and possibly damage our new floors. We then used a socket wrench to remove the 2 nuts holding in the broken element. After that, we pulled out the old element, and this is where the difficulty came into play. The wires for the element stayed inside the back of the oven, and nothing we did could make them come out. We tried for a long time to get the wires to come back out into the oven, but our fingers were not long enough, and nothing we inserted into the space helped the situation.

Since we had turned the electricity off and still were reluctant to move the oven ourselves, we actually decided to call in a repair person (cost: $90). What he did, though was really simple:

He pulled the oven out from the wall. Used a screwdriver to open the back panel of the oven and was able to pull out the wires. Then, he inserted the new element, hooked it up to the wires, and closed back up the back panel. Then, he moved the oven back into place.

The repair person did this in all of 5 minutes, so if my husband and I had thought about the back panel, we would have easily done it ourselves.

Old element burned up

I started by lifting the front of the stove and slipping a towel under it so it would slide easier and not scratch the floor. The next step was to unplug the stove, after that, I removed the shelves. The next step was to remove the cover plate on the b ack to expose the connection. I removed the old element by pulling the to slide-on connections and the two mounting screws. At this point I took the time to clean the oven since the element was not in the way. To install the new element I did the opposite of th removal process.

Bake element cracked and shorted out

First, I made sure the power was turned off at the breaker box so I didn't electrocute myself. Then, I took out the 2 screws that hold the element in place, then pulled it out and unplugged the wires.
I plugged the wires onto the new element, and replaced the screws. My daughter could have done this....
