turned off the breaker (240 volts and it was outside, so it took longer than 15 minutes). Removed two screws in the back of the oven, one on each side of the old element, and pulled the old element forward. The wires on the back add some resistance, but they are long enough to pull forward a short distance (3 inches) without damage. Unplugged the old element, plugged in the new element, pushed it into place, and reinstalled the screws. Turned the power back on and it worked! Saved some money for the holidays! DIY para vida!
Turned the circuit breaker off. Removed the 2 screws holding the element in place, pulled the element out far enough to access and disconnect the wires. Installed the new element by reversing the process. Success - wife is happily baking again!
Recieved the part within 24 hrs after I ordered it which was awesome.Removed the two screws holding element in place and pulled out to remove old element. Disconnected the wires and removed element. Had to replace the wire ends with slip on ends to match new element. Spent more time at Home Depot looking for $.99 ends and a crimper than it did to do the entire replacement. Reinstalled element with no problem. Worked great.
This was amazing. First I couldn't believe I could find a part for an over that was 25 years old. Fixing it was just as easy. I read some of the other reviews and it was just as easy as they described. Unscrewed the two plates on the back of the oven, unclipped two pieces and screwed the plates back on. It took me a total of 10-15 minutes, BUT, I couldn't get the door back on. Had to impose on a neighbor to help. Ten minutes to fix the oven and three days to get the door back on! Still worth it. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
Shut off wall oven circuit.Took out screws, pulled element out, disconnected oven wire terminals from old element and popped them onto new element.Pushed them back behind oven wall and put screws back.Flipped circuit back on and baked some chocolate chip muffins :) Got tired of asking Hubby to fix it.You GO Ladies! ;-)
it was really easy. The most time consuming is removing an replacing the unit from the built-in cabinet.
First, I removed the 2 screws holding the element in place. Next, I pulled the element out abotu 4 inches and disconnected the wires attached to the element. I was able to do one by hand, but the other required needle nosed pliers. (be careful not to pinch the connecting wire). Then I attached the wires to the new element. Lastly, I replaced the 2 screws to hold the new element in place.
After unpacking and checking the unit that was mailed to me, I cleaned the ends of both the connections in the oven and the connections on the part, then plugged them together and screwed the plates in place in the oven. The oven worked immediately and still is working very efficiently. I had no problems at all with the installation.
First I turned off the circuit breaker...just to be safe. I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I was surprised you didn't went new screws, but that was OK. I pulled out the old one, and pulled out the two wires. It was tricky, for me, to pull apart the old wires. Luckily, a friend was braver than I, and just pulled them apart using a little muscle, and easily connected the new wires. I screwed it back in, and it was done! I was really impressed with how quickly it arrived at my door, too.
Took two screws out of burned out unit. Pulled element forward and pulled off connectors. Replaced new element on connectors and screwed back in. Extremely simple. Less than 10 minutes.
Inspect new part; collect tools; TURN OFF BREAKER; remove two screws holding defective element (KEEP!); install new element using saved screws; turn power back on; test; celebrate!
replacing the stove top knob was super easy, it slides right on.
1. remove 2 screws holding element in place2. unscrew the wires from the old element3. the connectors on the new element was different from the old one4. cut old connectors from wires5. prepare wires for new connectors6. install new connectors7. connect the new element to the wires8. replace the 2 screws removed in step 19. test the repair10 it worked great.
I killed the circuit breaker to the oven, then double checked with an electrical tester. I removed the oven door for easy access, unscrewed the element bracket screws, plugged in the new element and then I reversed the steps above.I am very happy with PartSelect and will use them in the future for all my appliance parts needs.
