We turned off the power to the unit, removed the old element and secured the wireswith electrical tape to keep them from going back into the insulation at the back of the stove. We ordered a replacement part. After turning off the power to the stove again, we inserted the element and screwed in the brackets. The element worked GREAT! It saved us having to buy a new stove for the rental unit. Thanks, PartSelect!!

First 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. Reconnected the two wires to the new element, pushed them back into place and replaced the screws. Simple. Turned on oven to test.
I removed (2) mounting screws from the back of the oven and pulled the element out far enough to access the terminal lugs. I unplugged the old element and plugged in the new element. I also replaced the old mounting screws w/new hardware and replaced one of the terminal lugs on a damaged wire. I went ahead and replaced the broiler element at the same time (also only 2 screws on the top of the oven) although there was no indication of a problem. The process was very easy although I caution non-electrically skilled people to insure the power is off at the breaker panel when performing this work and, if the electrical wires are damaged, seek qualified assistance to repair them.
Dear Part Select:Thanks! You got me out of the dog house today!I received the oven part, installed it- it works great! Thanks for your prompt service! If ever I need another part in the future(and I am sure I will) I have you at the top of my list!First I removed the power to the oven by turning off the circuit breaker to the oven. After that, I removed the two screws (one on each side), that held the old bake element (the element on bottom) in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the single wire that connects to each end of the element, (2 wires total), then installed the new element in reverse order.It was a snap!Sincerely,Dennis T.Amarillo, Texas
We thought we'd try to fix it before we went out and brought a new (special order) stove/oven. The element came right out and the new one fit prefect. We were very happy that you had a part for this old thing and it was very easy to order from your web site. When the top element goes out, we'll be back!
Removal of two phillips head screws, pull 2 wire connectors apart, reversed the procedure and now the temperature I select on the oven controls is within 20 degrees of what the oven actually heats up to!!!
Pulled out old element after unscreding it. I went on your site and found anelement that looked similar. Drilled in holes on end and put it in. Then screwed it in place.
Turned off circuit breakerunscrewed two screws holding element in placecarefully pulled element from back of oven about 3 inches.disconnected wires from elementinstalled element in reverse order
I had only to remove two screws to remove old element.I then pulled element out approximately 3 inches to disconnect the two wires.I put clothespins on the two wires to prevent them from sliding back into unit while preparing new element for installation.Plugged in wires into the element and fed them back into holes at back of oven.Put aluminum foil under new bake unit for drips while I was there anyway.Tested element to make sure it worked okay.Thats was it.
Replaced bake and broil Elements. Replaced broken window frame, anr replaced all control knobs.The only tool I needed was a Philips Screwdriver.
First cut electrical circuit to oven for safety, then removed screws, two Phillips head, removed two wires from element, and put some clips on those wires so they wouldn't fall behind the oven wall. Then I got the new element, put on the two wires removed from the old element, attached element to rear wall of oven with the two screws removed previously, closed circuit breaker to oven, tested oven and it worked fine! Just like new. Standard shipment was plenty fast enough.
I unscrewed the element from the oven where the ends enter the back of the oven. I pulled out the element ends and unhooked the wire connectors being careful not to let them pull back into the oven wall. I connected the wire connectors to the new element, making sure that the front support was pointed down, and replaced the screws.
First shut off breaker to oven before starting the repairs. Removed old unit by removing two phillips head screws at each side above element entrance. Gently pull element out to expose wire attachments. Remove wires from each side careful not to lose wires inside back of oven. Replace with new element,(which was ordered online, and received within three days)in reverse order in which it was removed. Turn breaker to oven back on. Oven like new and ready to bake.
