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
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.
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.
took 2 screws out removed old element, put new element in and put the 2 screws back in. All worked great and I baked bread that same day. The service was fantastic, and $40.oo cheaper than the appliance store I checked with.
baking element went bad. removed the 2 screws holding it in place. unscrewed the 2 connected wires. took the new element which is a plug in type and drilled holes to fit the screws. had to do this as the exact part needed is no longer made. works fine.
After staring at the online pictures of possible replacement bake elements, trying to count the number of squares to figure the length and width of available oven bake elements (some of the pics had listed measurement some did not), I settled on a push on element, since there were no matching screw in elements that appeared to come close to the measurements needed. Since it was a push on, I had to drill out the holes a bit more to fit the screws which took some time and finesse. It appears to works and it at least has enabled me to put off my bigger decision of buying a newer oven for a bit.
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.
Unplugged oven. Pulled out from wall and removed backside access panel. Unplugged 2 stake-on connectors connected to element. From front side of oven, removed fan guard using 1/4 inch nutdriver. Gained access to and removed two screws holding in element. Pulled element out. For installation, reverse process.
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.
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.
First I unpluged the appliance. Then I removed the cover from the back of the range. I then disconnected the two wires from the element. I then removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then removed the old element and reversed the process to install the new one.
I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I pulled the element out about three inches anddisconnected 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.
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.
Removed the two screws which mount the element to the back of the stove.The old element had screws connecting the wires to the heat element. The new element needed female electro-terms, so I crimped the appropriate electro terms on. If you need to do this make sure you use the correct electro-terms based on the wire size from the stove.Installed new element in 2 minutes.Parts Select had the part here within two days with standard ground shipping. Very impressed with service. A clearer description of how the part connected to the wires from the stove would have been helpful.
