Pulled old knobs off, pressed new ones on. Probably well under a minute for 6 knobs. Anyone with the IQ of a horseradish could have done it. But what was really great was the help and personality of the agent at the other end of the phone. Shipping was as promised, and the entire experience was delightful!

Element in oven burned out

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. I had to use a mirror and flashlights to see in the back of the oven to replace the screws in the new element. It was very close quarters and difficult to see behind element plate.

Ordering and installing was easy. The hardest part was getting the exact match to 20 yr. old appliance knobs. First one I ordered had wrong shaft hole, but it matched perfectly in design. Decided to reorder and just replace all four with matching new-style knobs and the correct shaft hole. Yeah. Looks great and REALLY easy to install.

Turned power to stove off. Removed two screws from cover - lifted cover up and pulled switch out and disconnected wires. Put new switch in and connected wires. Made sure that it was in correct position by placing knob on to make sure off position was correct - then placed plate in position and closed - put two screws back on plate and put new knob on. Turned power back on and turned knob and burner back in operation

The hardest part was taking out original light bulb because screws on shield where hard to unscrew after all this years . The old bulb vent out leaving neck in socket. It took narrow electrical pliers to get neck out .The generic appliance bulb did not fit and had aluminum neck ,not recommended for brass sockets in ovens.Putting new light bulb in was not the problem.

I ordered the kit that contained all 4 wires and contacts. The replacement was fairly easy. The only drawback was the tight quarters in running the wires. The job was quick and a success. Now I can use my right side of my stovetop again!
