NOTE: My Tappan oven (model 77 4972 23) is 33 years old & it was difficult to find the correct part number for the broiler element. Part No. 5303051140 (PS 453940) costs only $18.00 but won't work because the plate that screws onto the oven is only 1.5 inches wide and it needs to be 3.75 inches wide to fit. The part number that works (and costs $89.00) is 220T017P02 (PS429510).

First thing I did was turn off power to the range at the circuit breaker. The repair was generally easy with the exception that 1 screw holding the broiler element support was "welded" into the oven ceiling. I stripped the screw trying to get it out. Fortunately, I had a special tool that allows one to grip the outer edge of the screw while turning it --- and that's how I got it apart. Once the broiler element support was off, I removed 2 screws from the 3.75 inch plate holding the broiler element itself to the oven wall and carefully pulled the broiler element out from the oven wall and detached the wire clips connecting the wires to the broiler element. I reattached the clips onto the new element and installed the new element back into the oven wall. I then reattached the broiler element support using a another screw (because I decimated the original one). I then turned the circuit breaker back on and turned the broiler on. Voila. My broiler works again! Special thanks to the people at this site who were very helpful in seeing to it I got the correct broiler element. The original ordered broiler element was delivered to the wrong address. The folks at this site sent me another one. To make a long story short, they saw to it I got the correct part. I highly recommend this site based on my experience with them. GREAT customer service!!

I pulled out the glass turn table tray and put the bushing in the little whole, in the center of the bottom (under turn table tray). Fixed the problem right away. Working wonderful! Was happy with how easy it was to locate part. Had received this microwave as a wedding gift, feb. 1994. Thought I was going to have to replace. Thanks to your website I was able to locate and purchase the part needed to fix the problem in less than 1 minute. I thanks you. I love this particular microwave!
