Oven wouldnt heat

I assumed the bake element was the problem,so I ordered one from Part Select.I was amazed that I got it in 2 days! After removing the 2 screws that held the element in place,I disconnected the 2 wires from the element.I wasnt being very careful and let one of the wires slip back into the hole in the back of the oven.Couldnt get the wire back out,so I had to take the back of the stove off to get to it.Next time,I'll be careful to keep the wires from going back into the holes.Then I connected the element,screwed it in place an turned the oven on.Success !!!

CustomerLisa from Helena MT

Heating element in the lower unit of the doubleoven broke.

First I disconnnected the breaker for the oven and then removed the broken element by unscrewing the screws that held it in with a nut driver. I then pulled the element out exposing the connected wires. I removed the wires from the element by pulling them off with my fingers. Using a set of hemistat pliers I secured the wires so they wouldn't slip into the holes at the back of the oven. I connected the new element by slipping the connectors onto the element and finished by putting the ends of the element back into the holes and securing it into place with the screws using the nut driver.

CustomerBrook from Flora IN

Lower heating element was out.

Open the oven door and removed a metal screw from each side of the element on the rear wall of the oven. Pull each side of the element out about 2-3 inches and you should see the terminal fitting with a spade type connector. Remove the connector from each side and discard the old element. Place the connectors on your new element and push it through the openings that the old element came out of. Replace each of the metal screws and you are done.

Heating element blew out

Only two screws to remove, so it was very easy to just pull the element out, remove the wire connectors from the old element and place on the new one. This is one repair you should NEVER call a service person for! Be brave--anyone can do this.

CustomerJ.P. from Delmar NY

Over-used, well beyond useful life bake element began to disintegrate/crack/melt.

Probably a good idea to either unplug unit or make sure oven is in off position first, then remove screw on either side of old bake element, then gently pull out about 3 inches to expose wire connections and carefully disconnect each slide-on connector. Dispose old element in trash and replace with new one from partselect.com in reverse order. Very simple and much less expensive than either buying a new appliance(if you've been satisfied with what you have), paying a repairperson to come in and/or trying to hunt down the right part from a "local" appliance store/warehouse. The part was easily identifiable via the graphic depiction on the partselect.com website, arrived in excellent condition and in record time for normal ground shipping(less than 2 days from order date!), and I experienced kind and competent customer service from the get-go. A do-it-yourselfer like me really can't ask much more than that when it comes to appliance repair!
