The old element simply burned itself out.

Loosened the two nuts that hold the element in place. Gently pulled the old elementr forward to expose connections. Disconnected the old element and attached the new element. Slipped the new attached element through the holes being carful not to disturb the insulation. Once the element was in the correct position with the tabs against the back wall of the oven replaced the two nuts and the job was complete. The whole job took approx. 5 minutes. It was very, very easy.

My element caught on fire. After it cooled it snapped.

I unplugged the stove and used a flashlight for light. I tried a phillips head, but it was too big. I then got a set of pliers and unscrewed the two screws an pulled out the element. I removed the 2 electrical plugs from the ends of the element and attached the new ones. They went on from the top where as the old ones slid from the side. after pushing the element back in i screwed the screws back in and the backings were a tad large so I bent them up and presto it was fixed!

Bottom element broke and would not heat

the repair itself went smoothly. the clips that the new part connected to were old and slack. the clip came undone and had to pull the stove out to get to part from the back. i squeezed the clip together to make it stay on the new part and it held. the oven is heating well now.

The bake element burned out

I turned off the circuit breaker to the range. Next I removed the two screws that fastened the element to the rear of the oven. Then I pulled the element out far enough to be able to reach the spade clips and disconnected the element. I connected the replacement element to the clips and fastened it to the rear of the oven with the two screws. I turned the circuit braker on and the element functioned properly.

Baker element burned out

Really easy process. First I unplugged the oven for safety then I proceeded to remove the 2 screws that were holding the old element in place. Next I removed the old element then installed the new one. After installing the two screws I connect the oven back to its power source and BANG!............. It works like a charm

I give it a A+ installation

Heat element would not heat.

Turned off power to oven at breaker box.
Removed one screw that holds the element in place. The other screw would not unscrew, I went to hardware store for drill bit and special hand tool (which cost less than $15) to remove stuck screw. I didn't have the right size screw, so I went back to hardware store for two new screws. Pulled the element out and disconnected the two wires(they are plug-in). Lost one wire into the back of oven because I did not hod it for the new element to plug onto. I removed the back of oven by unscrewing several screws and located the wayward wire. I threaded it back into the hole (easy) and someone grabbed it and held onto it while I screwed the back of the oven back on. Then I placed the wire connectors onto the new element being sure to squeeze hard with pliers so there would not be any slipping off of the wires. The power was restored and the element worked great. A less than 30 minute job took over 2 hours because of inot thaving he right tools.

Burned out bake element

Try to buy new unit from local dealer, was told unit was too old. Went on line to Part Select and found part needed and ordered part. When part came, I removed two screws from in oven and four screws from back of range, discorrected two wire leads from bake unit, removed old unit and installed new unit, connected wires, reinstalled back cover, and installed bake unit to oven with two remaining screws. Job done, oven is now working. The part costs with shipping was around $33.00, new oven $600.00. Thanks Part Select.
