CustomerThomas from Stevensville MD

The oven heat element experienced a sudden "flaming meltdown"

The meltdown was a spectacular event. After clearing the kitchen of smoke and allowing the oven to cool down. I easily removed the remnents of the old element by removing the screws holding each side in place and disconnected the two wires. I then insulated the hot side wire (red) to prevent the possibility of a short when resetting the breaker in order to use the stove top. The next day I found PartSelect.com and ordered the very reasonably priced new part with optional overnight shipping. it arrived at 1:00 pm the following day. Installation was a simple reverse of the removal. The oven works great and I now keep a fire extinguisher in my kitchen.

CustomerLois J. from Henderson KY

The element got too hot and burned a bad spot in the element.

First I removed the 2 screws on each side of the element and then pulled the element out, disconnected the 2 wires that were holding the element, got the new element and connected it to the wires, slid back into position, put the screws back in that hold the element and put the racks back in and turned on for test. It was so easy I had it done before my husband arrived home from work.

Baking element cracked

Removed the baking element with a nutdriver. Slid it to the front of oven and removed the contacts on the back side. Installed the new element and installed the contacts at back of element. Slid it in the holes on back inside of oven and used a nutdriver to install the screws. It was very simple to do.

Oven bottom burner not heating

Locating part on web site, ordering, receiving next day & installing was very very easy. Information provided on PART SELECT web site and that provided with part made this a very easy and cost effective repair. With service provided by PART SELECT there is no reason to pay for an expensive service call in addition to what a repair company would charge for the part.

Customersteven from EPPING NH

The bottom heating element burned out.

I pulled out the stove from the wall and unplugged it. I then used a socket set with a long extension which made it easier to reach the rear wall of the stove. After removing the screws i gentle pulled the element forward and exposed the clips and wires. I removed the clips. The wires seemed to want to slip back into the hole so I used clothes pins to hold them in place. After I received the new element (Two Days) I reversed the process. Using a socket set it is very easy to tighten the screws to much. Be careful to just snug the screws. I plugged the unit back in and slid it back in place and turned it on.

Old bottom 2000w 240 volt oven element burnt out

I figured that it could not be a hard repair, that these things "die" in the ordinary lifetime of an oven, so that they would not make it too hard to get to. I pulled out the oven and disconnected it; opened three screws on the back, took off the back plate, and you could easily see the two connectors to the element. They came off with a gentle tug with pliers. Then you open the oven, and remove one screw on each side where the element is connected to the back wall of the oven. A magnetic hex socket end for the screwdriver makes it easier. Remove the old element gently through the glass wool insullation, and insert the new one with the element "legs" down. Verify the placement of the element connections in the back, and then replace the screw that hold the tab on the base of each element side to the back wall of the oven. Then, carefully reconnect the connector sleeve onto each end of the element in the back of the oven snuggly. Close the back panel with the three (the forth on the top was not tight and didn't need openening or closing)screws to the sides and bottom of the panel. Replace oven and reconnect to power, and test the element. It all took less than half an hour.

Very little heat in the oven

The problem was that there was heat in the oven but only a little. This threw me off at first but my wife tells me that the broiler element is used as the oven heats up. So bottom line is, the main element was burned out and once I replaced it, everything worked fine.

Bake element (lower element) in oven quick working

Even though my exact model was not matched by Parts Select the bake element shown in a picture for a different model was correct. The length the bake element protruded through the wall of the oven was the same as the old one. The element arrived within two days, packaged so it would not be damaged en transit.
