Package arrived while I was working at the computer and my husband announced minutes later, "That's what I like to see". I didn't know what he was talking about until he tossed the packing list on my desk and said, "It works perfectly. Good Job!" It had only taken a minute to pop the new parts in and he already had water on for coffee.

Frayed and exposed receptical wires in cartridge

* Do not lose the supplied CERAMIC electric connecting nuts; they will not fry in the heat.

* Unplug the heating elements from the old receptacles, and remove any rings; unplug the cartridge by lifting up the back side and pulling gently toward the back of the stovetop.

* Unscrew the cartridge top from the cartridge base (about 12 screws) and the recepticals, and cut the old wire close to the old receptacle.

* If you have a spare magnetic thingy around, use it to hold the screws and not lose them.

* Screw in the new receptacles, route the newer wiring from the receptacles (use as much of the new wire as possible), back toward the wiring block on the cartridge plug.

* Recut the old wiring to accomodate the length of the new wiring, but leave at least 2-3" from the wiring block, if possible. Re-connect them using only the supplied CERAMIC electric nuts.

* The CERAMIC nuts allayed my fears about the effect of heat on a plastic nut; ceramic is designed for high-heat environments.

* Reverse the disassembly steps to reassemble and reinstall the cartridge.

This wasn't much of a repair -- rather a replacement of a simple abused part. At the same time, PartSelect allowed me to order what I needed after two failed attempts to buy replacements that would fit the range. I'll remember PartSelect if we need parts for other older appliances in the rental units.

I removed the heating element and noticed that the prongs were corroded. I looked for a model number but couldn't find it so it made it difficult to find a replacement until I got on this website. I found the replacement part and also found that as I checked for other sites for this part this company was the most resonable priced.
The part arrived and I replaced it in seconds. Turned it on and it worked immediately. Super easy.
