Baking element went out

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!

Oven would not heat up

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

Bake unit burned through had to replace

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.

Main heating coil fractured, caught on fire and seperated into two pieces

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

The bottom element in our oven went out.

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.

Customer: Paul from Waunakee, WI

The bottom heating element was burned out and needed to be replaced.

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.
