Turned off power. Removed 2 nuts at rear of oven and pulled the heating element out to expose end connections.

Wasn't sure exactly what part number to order, called Parts Select, very nice lady on the phone helped me find the correct part#, I ordered it and approx. 24 hours later it arrived. Shut the power off to stove, removed the two screws on the back wall, gently pulled the connecting wires through (still attached ) to the element. Disconnected the wires and put a spring type clothespin on them so as not to lose the wires back in the insulation. Connected new element, put power back on. I was amazed how easy a job it was, thanks to reading some of the instructions on this forum. Not to mention saving a bunch of money. I will definitely order from PartsSelect whenever the need arises.
SHUT OFF THE BREAKER! Remove two (2) screws from the inside of the oven. Remove the five (5) screws on the back cover on the outside. Pull the wires from the spade terminals on the element (take note of the Red and White sides). Slide out the old element and slide in the new one from the oven side. Button up your screws and reset your breaker. Game over, bake a pie.
Used Socket set to remove the two screws in the oven to unplug and replace, had to also take the back pannel off the stove to get the new unit connected into the socket, total time less than 30 min.
First I turned the breaker off. Then I unscrewed the 2 nuts for the bottom burner. Disconnecting the one plug was easy, but when I unplugged the other one, the electrical cord sprung back up into the oven. That is what took so long, getting the cord from inside the oven. Thankfully I hve small fingers so it didn't take too long. I then connected the electrical cords to the new burner. Finally, I screwed in the nuts.
Unbelieveable customer service!! Just in time for Thanksgiving Dinner. Part was shipped and received the next day. Thank you so very much.The Bartons
Turn power off. Then I removed the two small screws holding the element to the stove wall. Tip it up as you pull it out of the oven wall being a little carefull as the wires to the element are very short! I only had about an extra 1/2" of wire. Pull wires off of the old element and part them on the new one being carefull NOT to loose them back in the stove wall. Push the new element back into the oven wall and replace the mounting screws. 5-10 minutes tops. J.V.
My 8 year old son did the repair while I explaned what to do,that was the best part of this stove problem. My burner caught fire when it broke and really scared my children. I looked up the part on Part-Select and ordered it. To my complete surprise it arrived the next day(I did not pay for overnight) My son wanted to learn how to take out the old one and put in the new one so I let him. Thanks for a GREAT learning time with my son and for your super service!! Ed
Removed back cover of stove. . . Just a few screws. . . Disconnected 2 terminals to bake element. Then removed 2 screws inside the oven. . . Holding the element. Replaced with new element. . . Reattached the two mounting screws inside the oven. . . Attached terminals in back. . . Replaced back cover that covered the terminals and other connections. That was it.
I removed the 2 screws that held the element in place. I then pulled the element out and removed the 2 wires. I was able to connect one wire to the new element, but the second wire drew back though the opening. I then had to pull out the stove and remove the center cover on the back of the stove by removeing the screws, there were five or six. do not forget the one in the center of the bottom. I then connected the second wire and replaced the back cover and slid the stove back in place. I then replaced the 2 screws that held in the element in and was done. Worked good as new and no repair bill.
Removed the 2 screws that hold the element in place in the oven. Pulled on the element to expose the wires. At this point the element which was initially just cracked ,broke completely appart ,at the crack into 2 pieces. (Confirmed obvious element failure lol..) Ordered a new element and decided to just plug in the range so as to be able to use the stove till it arrived. Blue sparks and now no power at all to the stove. frustrated at my ignorance I go out side and check the breaker. It seemed ok,so now i worry about a blown fuse. I took the back panels off with appropriate socket and cant find a fuse..JUST GREAT!! i notced a burn mark where the wire connects to the element and figured out that it shorted because it was touching the inside of the oven ..I had not pushed it back flush. I found out how to simply slip the connector off of the element with the back open and now pushed the element back in place. I taped the wires with electrical tape so they would not short on anything,checked the breaker again and turned it off for a second..then back on. This time when i plugged the range back in I had power..whew what a relief!! When the new element arrived it took 10 minutes to take the 2 screws back out ,swap in the new element and slide on the wires to the connectors. I reinstalled the backing plate ,and put the 2 screw back in to hold the element. Problem solved!!
1. Turn breaker to off position.2. Using socket wrench, remove the old element.Takes a little prying to remove the connection from the eletrical wires.Be careful.3. Insert new part and tighten with socket wrench.
pulled out old element by unscrewing the 2 bolts in the back and vcarefully pulled out the two wire s . wires are very tight so if you let go of them which i did you will need a pair of needle nose plires to pull them out. other than that the installation is easy
Turned off power to stove. Removed burned-out element by removing two sheet metal screws and disconnecting two push-on electrical terminals. Installed new element by pushing on electrical terminals. Pushed the new element back in place and secured with two sheet-metal screws. Turned power back on and tested element. All OK.
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 and held them out with two pair surgical scissors. Besure you hang onto wires because they are a bear to get back thru hole.
