First shut off power to the range in the electrical breaker box (its the 220 breaker) as marked. Remove the oven door ( open part way and lift up) the door will come off. Remove the 2 screws that the element is attached to the back of the oven wall. Pull element out part way and disconnect the 2 wires. Take out element. The new element had different connections so I cut off the clips stripped the wires and attached to the element connection . The element had connections that this was possible. Push wires back into oven wall and install the new element with the 2 screws that were removed. You could also put on clips to the 2 wires that attach to the element if so desired. (Eye hole clips.)
It was so simple, I turned off the breker to the oven, unscrewed two screws holding in the element, pulled out until the wire connetion was exposed. I unscrewed those two screws, then placed the replacement part, put the two screws on, pushed back the wiring and insulation.Final step was screwing two screws to hold the unit to the oven back. So simple! The part was ordered regular mail and still was here in 2 days. Will recommend to friends for sure!
took cover off back of stove. Removed two screws and wires that were attached to the element. Removed old element and installed new element. An easy repair.
Using a nut driver, I removed the two screws holding the baking element to the firewall of the oven. I then pulled the baking element out exposing the two wires connected to it. I then used the same nutdriver to remove the nuts and detached the old element. I then connected the new element to the wires, pushed the wires inside the firewall and reattached the element to the firewall of the oven. The time it took was literally a few minutes. Works like a new oven!
I loosened two screws that held the baking element to the stove and pulled out. Then, with a screwdriver , I took the old wires off and replaced them onto the new Baking Element and reassembled.It was a very easy task and while I was at it,I replaced the Drip Bowl pans on the top of the stove with Chrome ones.I ordered the parts on a Tuesday and, to my surprise, I received them on Thursday, and the cost was about half of what it would have cost me elsewhere (to include GE Parts Warehouse)I highly recommend partselect to all of you that need inexpensive repairs.
I couldn't find the oven model number so I just looked at the shapes from partselect.com. This would have been fine except I didn't know my Kenmore model had 4" leads so the one I ordered were only 2". I had to return the first element but the process to do this was FAST and EASY. With help I found the model number and had the correct part shipped. It took less than 5 minutes to install. It took longer to mop and clean behind the oven that hadn't seen the light of day in 10 years.
Took the oven door off first. Then four screws to remove the old burner. I did have to oil two of the screws so I could loosen them.
At 76 I no longer do my repairs so I asked my daughter's friend to do it for me.
This range is about 30 years old and I was thrilled to still be able to get the bake element, which burned out about a month ago. I was doing research to buy a new stove when a cousin, from out of town, called to say they were going to visit the following week. No time now to get a new one installed. "partselect.com" was the fastest way. THANK YOU!First off, I want you to know I'm an obese 56-year female without tools. But, I knew where to borrow those.I first shut the power off to the range. I then disconnected the 2 screws that hold the element and pulled it out to reveal the 2 screws which connected the wires. I unscrewed those and removed the bake element. I double checked the stove model and bake element part # at the GE website and ordered it from "Partselect.com". It came in about 3 days. I then reversed the order of the above and it was done.Here are some challenges I encountered..1) The oven door was in the way making it uncomfortabe to get to the back of the stove.2) Those $#%& screws are so short I kept dropping them.3) The wires in the back bend easily. Be careful.That's about it. It was a pill but not a real problem. It sure beat buying a new range before I've decided on which one to buy.
Hi, First unplug appliance ,remove the oven door by pulling it up from the hinges, giving room to work deep inside , remove the two screws that hold the element in place. then pull the element out carefully not to stress the wires and replace the element . Note after all is done test with an oven thermometor :)
Couldn't be a much simpler repair. You pull the old element off by removing two screws. Then you slide the old element toward you several inches and remove the two screws holding the wires that are attached to the old element. To replace, just do everything in reverse. One cautionary measure, even though the oven is off, there is still a small amount of electricity going to the element. Turn the stove off at the circuit breaker, or unplug the stove before you attempt the repair.
The element was 25 years old and I was concerned about changing it. But is was so easy. I turned off power and removed 2 screws and then unscrewed the wiring from the old element. I had the new one installed in minutes. I was so glad to have my oven working again. Who needs a man.
Removed oven door by holding sides and pulling upward. It's easy to remove and replace. Removed shelves by sliding back and up, then out. Removed two hex nuts with socket wrench. They are on back wall of oven and secure element to that wall. I then pulled element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two leads.I put new element in, reconnected two leads, replace two hex nuts and was done. Turn off power to stove at circuit breaker before starting.
First I turned the power off to the oven/stove at the breaker box in the basement. Then I took the back plate off. Then I removed the two screws holding the wires onto the damaged element. Then I removed the two screws holding the element to the inside rear of the oven. Then I pulled the old element out and replaced it with the new element. I replaced the two screws that hold the element to the inside of the oven. Then I replaced the wires on the element where it protruded at the back of the oven. I put the back plate back on, slide the oven back in place and turned the power back on at the breaker and everything worked.
