My husband did the repairs so I don't really know all of those details. I do know that the replacement product was delivered as scheduled and because I had read all of the other repair stories, I knew to tell him not to let the wires slip back into the back of the oven. Thanks for all of you who wrote about your experiences. It only took him 15 minutes to fix my oven!

irst I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires...)
WELL I first took off the oven door and then took out the baking racks. Then I used my nutdriver without and bits in it, since the screws that needed to be removed were .25" hex tops and that is the same size as the hole one the end of my nutdriver that you put the bits in, to unscrew the 2 screws. I then pulled out the element, but I could only get one side to come out. So I pushed the right side back in and tried to pull the left side out. Then there was a very load clap, a lot of sparks and some smoke. I then checked to make sure the knob was in the OFF position and it was. Then I pulled the stove out and unplugged it, something I felt I did not need to do because the switch was in the OFF position. I then removed the middle section from the back of the stove and unhooked the old element, went back to the front and pushed the new one into place and tighten the 2 screws. Went back behind the stove and connected the 2 wires, put the back piece back on, plugged the stove back in, pushed the stove back into place, then turned the stove ON to make sure the new part worked and it did. I then put the racks back in and the door back on and it oven was ready to make dinner. And NO I did not learn my lesson about first unplugging electric things before working on them, that is usually falls between steps 2 to 4. Louis
Turn off power at breaker 2.Remove two screws and pull out wire just about 3 to 4 inches so I could remove each side of clips. 3 clip the new bake unit to wires and screw the new unit back in to existing holes.4 Turn on breaker and start oven. I did it in less than 15 min it took longer to find my tools.
Read posts on this site by others who did the same repair and found that to be a great help especially since the part came with out instructions.From the posts I was expecting the wires to be short and had vice grips available to stop them from sliding back through the insulation. One still did though. I took off the back plate and pushed it back through. Piece of cake. The clips on the end of the wires were pretty loose and I used some needle nose to crimp them down. I also made sure to unplug the oven prior to starting.
The repair was quite easy once, I knew what was behind the heating coil back plate.•Slide the range out from the wall•Remove the two sheet metal screws with a nut driver on the coil back plate and lightly pull on the heating-coil until the leads are visible through the insulation•Hold onto the leads and pull on the coil until separation•Remove the coil•Remove (4) metal screws with the nut driver on the long rectangular cover plate on the back of the oven•With assistance in the back of the oven, have them push on the leads separately so that you can grab and attach each lead to the coil. Otherwise, you will keep fitting to hold onto the leads and they will keep extracting back into the insulation.•Install the new coil•Once the leads are attached, replace the metals sheet screws with a nut driver on the coil back plate•Replace the (4) sheet metal screws on the rectangular cover plate on the back of the oven•Slide unit back into place making sure that the rear foot slides into the tip-over bracket•Finished
My husband pulled out the stove, removed the center back panel, disconnected the old element, removed it, placed the new element in the oven, reconnected it, replaced the back panel onto the back of the stove and that was it. It took maybe 5 minutes and we saved about $10.00 purchasing the part from part select. We would definitely buy parts from PartSelect again.
Took two screws out, unplugged the wires.Put the new heating element in. Plugged in the wires and put the screws back.Took about 16 minutes !
The part I ordered was a perfect match for the broken unit. First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires...) I removed the broken element put the new one in reattached the wires and then put the two screws back it. Oven works perfect.
Unplugged oven, removed 2 screws from the rear of unit and disconnected power connectors for heating element. Replaced broken element wint new assembly, reconnected neutral/hot connectors and reattached rear cover. Very easy repair.
First I pulled stove out away from wall and unplugged the power cord then I removed the oven door to make repair much easier. I removed the two screws holding the heating element in place. I then went behind stove and unscrewed four screws to remove panel covering the electrical connections. Disconnected wires to heating element. Removed old element and reversed each step to connect new element.
1. Pull out all the cooking racks for best access. 2. Remove the two hex head screws at the bottom back of the oven cavity that hold the element. 3. Gently pull the element out towards you. The electrical prongs will slide out from the insulation. Pull them just far enough to clear the electrical connections. The connections slide off the ends - use a pliers or needle nose as they fit tightly. 4. Snap the electrical contacts on to the new element, then feed them back into the back of the stove cavity. 5. Replace the hex head screws.
Bake element made slightly different than original.The non removabal metal plate to cover opening for wires at the oven rear was to small. Had to fabricate cover with sheetmetal with holes in it for the elements conductors to go thru.
replaced heating element. Took less then 15 minutes to repair. Ordered the heating element on Monday morning received new element by noon the folowing day. It was actually painless to repair, great company to do business with. Thank You so much
It was so easy I can't believe in the past I would have called Sears because I have such a" no handy man" gene in my body person. I saved over $150.00 by doing it myself. Took out eight screws, pulled the old heating element out, replaced the old with the new, put eight screws back, put the range back in place, plugged it in, turned it on and walla, done deal. Less then 10 minutes, I swear
