CustomerJohn D. from Thousand Oaks CA

The lower bake element in the upper oven burnt out.

In order to determine what was wrong with the oven I used a voltage meter to determine if power was coming to the element in the first place. Be careful to set your meter at least 500 ACV, as the oven is operating at 240V. Remove the two screws that hold the element in place and carefully pull it out of the side of the oven. Turn on the bake element in the upper oven and place your test leads to either side of the connection leads. If you get a reading of 240Volts plus or minus you will know for sure the element is bad.
Turn off the oven, or even better turn off the circuit breaker to your stove.
There are two leads to the element that are held in place by self taping screws. If you have the same luck I have they will be corroded together. Carefully use long nose pliers to hold steady while gently applying pressure. If necessary use liquid wrench. When separated put together in the reverse order as how you took it apart.

The bake elment was over 25 years old when it cracked and burned out.

Turned off the electricity to the ovens. Unscrewed the two screws holding the old bake element. Removed the old one by disconnecting the two wires and replaced the new element in it's place.

The bake element started to crack and open in several areas.It was just a matter of time before it would of broken in half.

Turn the power of to the stove used a 5/16 socked and unscrewed the element from the stove. Used the socket to remove the wires from the element. Installation was easy make sure you hold the end of the elements where the wires attach so they do not bend when tightening. Everything is working and back to normal. Make sure you use the model number to get the correct part needed.Part select was the best and delivery was with in 5 days.

Baking element broken in two

The baking element burned through, in my really old double oven. (It was in our home when we bought it 16 years ago.) It was the top oven element that broke. I wasn't sure it could be repaired. I looked on line and I found it. It took my husband less than 30 min. to fix it. I have my oven back but it would have nice to get a new one.
