CustomerPatricia from Temperanceville VA

Electric oven would only heat to about 150 degrees

I used this site self diagnostic page and ordered the oven heating element as that was the item suggested for repairs. It was the correct part to fix my oven problem. I had my electrician visiting to install two light fixtures so I had him install the new heating element in the oven. Even with him going to the garage to turn the circuit breaker off for the range the installation took less than 5 minutes.
This site is the greatest!

Bake on the oven wont heat up, but the broil and the stovetop worked fine

I'm a stay at home mom so when the oven didn't heat up I through oh no I have to get a new one. Well who can afford to get a new oven right after christmas. So I played with it to see if the other parts still worked, when I found that they did, I googled the the Appliance name, that is when PartSelect showed up and they had a video on how to replace the bake element. It looked doable so I ordered the part and it really was a easy fix. It took less than 10min all I had to do was pull out the old element and put in the new element. Only trouble I had was, I had to bend the prongs alittle but that was no problem. Thankyou PartSelect

CustomerTiffany from Smithfield NC

My oven just didn't heat one day!

We tested all of the other "functions" of the oven to make sure that everything else worked fine, and we realized that the problem really had to be the element.

We ordered it and it came within 72 hours! We simply unscrewed the faulty element, made sure that the wires were handled carefully (circuit turned off!), and inserted the new element and rewired and screwed back into place the screws that were removed.

Simple as pie! You can do this! You don't need a service call for this one guys! Get BRAVE!!

Old baking element developed hot spot and failed

Working on 33 year old Kenmore stove (Harvest Gold color bought in 1977). Have replaced the element every 12 to 14 years, last in 1997. 3-5 FedEx delivery took only 1 day. I verified Selector dial and Temperature dial both set to off. I took out the 2 oven shelves and took off the oven door for easier access to back of oven. Open oven door slightly to 1st catch, slightly lift and pull door away from the oven to clear the 2 side hinges from the openings. I used 1/4 inch socket with ratchet to remove 1 screw on each side holding element to back wall of oven. Gently pulled element out and up slightly so connectors come through openings in back wall. 1 connector came out from wall 4 inches, the other just barely. I used needle nose pliers to pull connector off element with 4 inches of wire. The connector did not come off easily, it took some wiggling of the connector (not too hard because it is brittle). I pulled connector off element barely out from the wall and held the connector in the pliers (did not let go). Put old element on kitchen floor and put new element on oven floor. Attached connector wire to end of element so it didn't slip through back wall. Attached connector wire to other end of element. Lifted element slightly to push through back wall openings. Used 1/4 inch socket to re-attached both screws. I put oven door back on (reverse of taking off). I set Selector to Bake and Temperature to 300. I watched element heat up (nice solid color along entire length) and reach 300 temperature and cycle off. I opened oven door to force the thermostat to kick in the cycle again. I closed oven door to watch the element again. When the heating cycle finished, I turned the Selector & Temperature to off. When oven cooled off, I put the shelves in again.

Old heating element quit working, smoking, sparks

took out the screws at the back of the oven, removed the old element and put the new one in, replaced the screws. The new part was mostly the same size as the old one, some of the angles were different and the ends slightly different, but it fit and works great.

The oven would not heat and the burners stopped working

I replaced the heating element but after doing so the oven still wasn't working. The oven is old and I discovered that the problem wasn't the heating element after all but an electrical problem and purchased a new oven.

CustomerGregg from Grain Valley MO

Old bake element was melted

Very easy repair. First and very important step...shut off power to the oven! Then removed two small screws holding element to back of oven, gently pulled it and the wires connected to it toward me, disconnected the wires, connected the new element and reversed the process. However what I really appreciated about this was how easy it was to find the part on PartSelect.com. It was difficult to read the model number stamped on the plate at the front of the oven, and I got 1 letter and 1 digit wrong. But when I did the search, instead of just telling me "not found," it offered a list of model numbers that were close to what I'd entered, and the first one was correct. Very helpful! The online store is very well set up and easy to navigate.

Original heating element broke due to dripped food.

Unplugged the appliance then removed the two screws holding the element in place. Pulled it out about 2-3 inches then pulled the wires off. The replacement element has 90 degree connectors as opposed to the original 180 degree connectors but that didn't affect installation and hasn't affected operation. Slide the wires on the new element, slide the element back in the oven, screw it back in and you're good to go. Trust me, easiest repair to do.

Original bake element stopped heating

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 with a pair of pliers do to the tight fit. Removed the old element and set the new one in place. Connected the two wires to the new element and squeezed the connectors tight. Push the element and wires back into the original position and used the new screws to secure the unit to the stove back. Took all of 5-6 minutes. Tested the oven with an oven thermometer at 250, 300, 350, 400 and 500 degrees and and all read within 5 degrees of the settings. Very easy, very simple, very quick.

Thank you for the quick responce and fast delivery of the parts.
