Original oven element broken, lack of heat

I removed the original element with socket set (two hex nuts). I removed the element and face plate, reversing the steps when installing the new element. It was simple.

Baking element burned out.

My husband removed the screws holding the element, disconnected the wires from the old element. He then reattached the wires to the new element, putting it back into place, tightened the screws, and we were cooking again. The shipping service was GREAT! I ordered the part on-line and it arrived next day! Thanks!

Cracked heating element (lower)

Unplugged oven. Removed the two screws from inside the oven that secured element to the back. I then removed the protective cover for the plug from behind the oven-three screws. Disconnected the element from the electrical wires, removed and replaced the element. And reassembled the cover and all the screws in reverse order. Plugged it in. Presto, 5 mins and works great.

Oven wouldn't heat

I had begged my husband for 1 1/2 years to fix the oven and he said it would be cheaper to buy a new one but he wouldn't go buy one. So I decided to fix it myself. I removed the screws that hold the element and then I pulled the element out and disconnected the wires. I then hooked the wires to the new element and pushed it back in place and attached the two screws. I made sure to put the insulation back in place and now I can cook cornbread again! Thank you so much for making this so easy for me to do by myself.

Heating coil burned in half

I had a very positive experience with the installation of the heating element in my oven. Although only six years old, the coils had many apple pie drippings that caused the coil to literally burn into two pieces. In my attempt to save on labor charges, I decided that I would replace the heating element myself. I was somewhat apprehensive, as I have never tried anything like this before. I read some of the experiences of others on part select, and decided I would try it. I received the part and got to work. I first turned off the power to the oven, and removed the oven door. I then pulled out the old heating unit after removing two hex screws. The new unit fit perfectly, but I then realized I would have to remove the back plate in order to get at the plugs. I used a hex head bit as the screws have no slots. I carefully removed the plate, avoiding the sharp corners and razor sharp edges. To my great satisfaction, I not only saw the receiving ends of the prongs, but the prongs of the new unit, all in clear view. I attached them, turned on the power and tested the unit. It worked! I replaced the plate, pushed the stove back to the wall, replaced the door, reset the clock and I was done. In all, I spent about 15-20 minutes for this repair. With the cost of a trip charge and the normal accelerated pricing on the part, I figure I saved over $150. 00. Thank you part select. By providing affordable pricing and feedback from customers, you made the job easy. Oh and by the way, I am female, and a senior citizen.

Burnt-out bake element

1). First, turn off the power in the breaker-panel box. Breaker panel should be labeled either "oven" or "range". If not, see your local Electrician.
2). You may need to slide the Stove or Oven forward to have an easier access depending on the placement of your Appliance.
3). Open the oven door and remove the oven racks and place them off to the side and out of the way. 4). Use your flashlight to identify where the screws are located on the burnt-out Bake Element. Take your nut-driver and remove the screw that is securing the bracket and element to the back of the oven. Note: This same bracket is not reusable but the screws are if they are not included with your new Bake Element. (Do not throw away any of the screws, you may need them later.)
5). Once both screws have been removed, slowly pull the old Bake Element towards you to expose the two wires connected to the terminals.
6). Take your screw driver or Phillips screw driver and unscrew the screw that is securing the wire to old Element. (Caution: The screw may be a little hard to remove. You may need to secure both wires while removing the screw to reduce the likelihood breaking the screw terminal off)
7). With both wires removed from the Old Bake Element terminal, slide the old element out of the Oven and off to the side. Install the New Bake Element in the reverse order.
8). Now that the element is installed; it is time to turn-on the power in your Breaker Panel box. Remove all tools and materials used for this project.
9). Time to check too see if the New Bake Element is working by turning on the Oven and observing the element as it operates to your desired oven temperature.

Main oven would not get to temp. Element never heated up, or turn red.

Followed the guide that was supplied;. Very easy. Turn 240AC breaker OFF. Remove 2 screws from oven wall and two screws at the element AC connection. Replace element, reinstall screws. Turn AC breaker back on and turn oven on to test.

The bake / heating element was bending and about to touch the bottom of the oven.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place with a small socket set. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires using a screw driver.

I removed the old heating element and reversed the above procedure to install the new heating element.

The procedure took about 15 minutes. The oven works great.

Customer: Yvonne from Mercer Island, WA

Bad heating element (bake)

The repair is easy. Make sure to cut the power first, remove the door for easier reach-in, unscrew the plate where the heating element connects into the back of the oven, unscrew the wires, and reverse the process with the new part. This should only take 15 minutes max. However, my oven is older and it took a long time to unscrew the plate because they were on pretty tight and they were nut screws, not philips or regular screws. If I had the proper tool, it would have gone more quickly.
