Two screws out, the old bake element came out easily, was able to disconnect very easily from the clip wiring, then replaced with new. I even was able to replace the oven light bulb at the same time. A real cinch.

I figured there couldn't be much else but the element that was bad, so I searched for "Magic Chef stove parts" on Google and found your site. Your site described the location for the model number of my stove, and also gave troubleshooting tips. I verified the element was bad with an ohmmeter and ordered the part from you guys. It arrived early, and installed with 2 screws and 2 push-on terminals. Stove works great now! I'm a web programmer and I think your website is very intuitive and useful. The information like model numbers, troubleshooting, parts measurements and extensive parts pictures is perfect for your customers. I found the correct diagnosis and part quickly, and ordered without a problem. Thanks - and keep up the good work! Mike

Short in the Bake Element

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, at that point I attempted to reconnect the two wires, that is when I found out why they tell you to unplug the electricity. It wasn't a big shock, more of a consistant shock. Once I unpluged the stove from the wall, it only took about 3 minutes or so to connect the wires and replace the two screws. I have no doubt I saved a hundred dollars doing this myself.
Thank you for your prompt delivery on the replacement part for my Bake Element at what I felt was a very reasonable price.

Old Bake Element Cut Itself In Half

A little background story: One day after cooking up some chicken I noticed a bright blue light coming from the bake element. I turned off the oven, but the blue light remained and was getting brighter. Come to find out the bake element had more or less welded itself in half and what I saw was electricity arcing between the two halves of the baking element. I had to unplug the range to stop the arc. Luckily fixing it was as easy as unscrewing the old one (held in with one philips screw on each side), popping the connected wires off (they just slide on and off of connecting tabs), and doing the reverse for installation. Super easy job.

I unplugged the oven, sat the flash light in the oven and removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I pulled the element out and diconnected the two metal wire clasps from the element. Connected the new element, made sure the clasps were secured. Slid the wires back in and replaced the screws. Tested the oven, it heats up to correct temperature. I am a women and it was real easy thanks to the other repair stories I read.

Element on range melted

  • Customer: Michael from Fruit Heights, UT
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench set

Pretty simple, except the element melted very close to one end, so the screw holding the element to the rear of the stove was partly melted also. Had to drill it out & used a nut & bolt to secure the new element.
Apart from that, it was a breeze. As others have done, I re-tightened the lugs that the element plugged into.
Suggest a "test heating" before using stove: mine had a strong odor on first use, fine afterwards

Oven wouldn't heat due to a burned out bake element

This was a snap. It took me longer to find the right part number than it did to make the repair. After securing power to the oven, I removed the racks. I then unscrewed the element supports and pulled the element out slightly to expose the connectors. Using a pliers I removed the connector from each side of the element. At this point, I should have placed a piece of electrical tape to prevent the connector leads from slipping back into the body of the oven. Instead, I fished them out with a tweezer, and slid the connectors back onto each side of the element. I then screwed in the elements supports, replaced the oven racks, and restored the power. It literally took less than 10 minutes.
