Bottom heat element

Turn the breaker off to the oven.Removed both wire racks,using a 1/4 nut driver unscrewed the old element.The flashlight was so I could see inside the oven.Having removed the two screws ,the old element came right out.With my needle nose pliers removed the wires one at a time,replacing them on the new element as they came off.Replaced the two screws holding the element ,replace my wire rack, turned the breaker back on.As for the price for the part ,it was less than a service call from a repairman,which would not have included the part.

Botton element melted in half.

First I turned off the circut breaker. Then removed the two wire racks. Then I removed the two 1/4" hex head screws holding the rear of the element in place. Pulled the element out far enough to remove the two wires. Discarded the old element. Installed the new element in the reverse order and turned the breaker back on. Took no more than 10 minutes. Ordering the part was easy. The diragrams with measurements of the part made it easy to insure that I was getting the right part. I'm sure I save myself at least a $65 plus service call. Not to mention a mark up on the part itself. I will use this website in the future if needed. Thanks

Hard to get the wires out , and screws dont line up like the original

When I pulled the old element out only one of the wires was visible, the other wire was still connected and after pulling a few times it came out , but the wire connector wasnt visible and I had to dig around in the small opening to find it (2 hours worth of digging and pulling) I finally got a hold of the wire and pulled it through and was able to connect it to the element, had to bend the metal around the opening to be able to get my finger in there and find the wire, The screws that hold the element in place wernt the same as the original so i just have it pushed up in place but it seems to work ok , took way longer than i thought it would.

My previous heating element, broke while a family member was trying to clean it.

This was so easy. First pull stove out and disconnect plug in from the wall. Then, 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. Then I installed the new one in reverse order.

Oven stop heating

I went online to find the part. I also found a how-todo it self installation instructions. So, I thought I would try it. I pulled the stove out and unplugged it. It took me 2 days to try and remove the screws. They wouldn't budge. On the second day, I was about to give up. I tried to loosen the screws again. It finally moved!! So, I kept at it. Took me about 10 mins on the first screw. Then another 10 or 15 minutes on the second one. Once I took the screws off, I didn't know how to remove the wires. I kept picking at them for about 5 minutes, and it was easy then. Removed the old bake element. Then connected the new element wires, put the screws back in (not tight). Plugged it up and tested it. It worked!!!!!! I've never did anything like this before. If the screws wouldn't have been so hard to remove;it would have went a lot better.

Lower oven coil caught on fire and then wouldn't work (shock)

I removed the screws holding the element in place and pulled it out, then pulled the wires from the element out. Very easy. When I got the new part, it seemed like it would be simple. I plugged the new wires back in and started to push it in place to screw it in. Unfortunately, there was a big spark and everything died. I was afraid I had crossed the wires, and I'm still not sure how one is supposed to tell which wire plugs in to which holder in the oven. Luckily, I discovered that I had simply blown a fuse. Problem solved, everything works.

CustomerJeffrey from Pawling NY

Bottom wall oven heating element failed

While I appreciate all the various parts available from PartSelect, I was disappointed that the only heater element that was approximately the right size and shape for my wall oven had push-on prongs. My original was screw-on.

Thus, I had to (very) carefully drill through the somewhat thick metal tabs to get screws into them. This meant holding the tabs with a pliers while I drilled them out to make sure that I did not break off the tab. Then, I increased the hole size by using increasing diameter drill bits. I let the screws self-tap, but again this was done carefully to avoid breaking off the tabs. Finally, I found that the part of the new heater element going through the back wall of the oven was an inch or so longer than the original. This did not seem to cause a problem of overheating outside the oven. At least not so far!

Old bake element was burnt out.

Flipped off the breaker for the stove. There were two screws holding the old element in place. Removed those, pulled the element out a little to expose two wires, disconnected those, swapped in the new element, reconnected the wires, and screwed it back into place. Flipped the breaker back on and voila! Barely more difficult than changing a lightbulb.

The bake element stopped working in my oven

This was extremely easy! I unscrewed two screws, pulled out the old element, inserted the new element and screwed the screws back in. Also, this part came very quickly through the mail. If needed, I will definitely use this site for repairs again.

Oven wouldn't heat

I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I pulled the element out about three inches and
disconnected the two wires. The screw holes in the new element would not accommodate the old screw size so I enlarged the holes to fit. Connected two wires and replaced two screws that hold element in place. End of story.

Bake element arched and burned

First, we ordered the part on Sunday afternoon online. It was here by Tuesday morning. We unplugged the oven and removed the screws holding the element in place and the electrical contacts. That was the toughest part because it's hard to get in the oven and they were baked on pretty well. We had to drill holes in the bake element. Be careful not to drill them too big, so the screw will fit snug and make contact. We screwed the bake element to the contacts, then back to the over, plugged it in and turned it on. The temperature is more constant and steady than ever, and the oven heats much faster. We were impressed and happy to avoid replacing the whole stove.
