Unplugged the stove first !
Removed bake element ; (2 screws), looked OK,
measured with an Ohm meter, measured "open".
Also, removed rear cover (6-screws), wires not burnt. Ordered new element-rec'd next day! My wife installed it and replaced rear cover. Works great (oven!) and about $10 cheaper and quicker than from a local dealer!

We removed the old part and replaced it then when warming the oven all of a sudden there was a loud noise and something went and so we called a repair man which I guess we should of done in the first place. Now he has ordered a part that cost 170 soo that is my story don't try to repair if you don't have experience.

First we turned off the electic, then we took the back off the stove and pulled the wire off the bad element then replace the new element. It was very easy to do.

Not heating up properly.

  • Customer: Jim from Kennett square, PA

What a job. Definitely should have two people do this. First, the part provided was not an exact match. I thought I was buying the same part as original. When I found it was different, there was a note that said the part may not be exact. This being said, I had to remove the wall ovens from the wall- very heavy , then had to take the back plate off, splice the wires to make the part work and then lift it up and put it back in. Next problem, its all hooked up, but still doesn't heat up correctly. Leave this to the pros.

It's a simple project. Remove old element and replace it with new one. Access is easy. Only one tool needed. What impressed me was how fast the part got here, like the next day after I ordered it.

Bake element burned out

This is an easy repair, as described in several other replies. One important addition to what has already been described. Very important to turn off the breaker or unplug the range. One terminal of the range is connected to a hot wire and the range housing is grounded. You may not manage to electrocute yourself, but you could cause and arc that damages the housing or connector. Turn off the power. Beyond that, simple. Unscrew two 1/4" screws with a nut driver, slide the element out and disconnect the wire connectors. Reverse procedure to install the new element and turn the power back on. Preheat briefly to burn off any odor. Very easy repair.

I removed the baking racks then unscrewed the default screws for the baking element.I then disconnected the electrical leads from the damaged element. I then removed the old damaged baking element and installed the new baking element, attaching the electrical leads after cheking for weak spots in the element. I then re installed the baking racks and started the oven to burn off any factory oils on the baking element.

I had to replace the switch on one of the large elements. It could and should have been a quicker repair if there would have been some installation/wiring instructions included with the part. Other than that the repair went well.

Shut off power - throw breaker. Oven access easier with door removed - requires removal of two Phillips head screws. Remove two screws holding element in place using 1/4" socket. Pull element & wires out and pull slide in connectors out (had to hold the wire end with needle nose pliers}. Installed element by reversing the removal procedures. Also good time to clean oven.

Instructions couldn't be better or easier. As others have said pre-tap the holes and though it's not a must invest in a #1 square screwdriver bit. The perfect fit will save time on the job.

Old heating element broke

  • Customer: Paul from Ellenville, NY
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Drank a beer, grabbed a screwdriver & tried to remove the two screws that held the element in place. The screws were old and when I turned them, they stripped instantly. This required another beer. Eventually I used pliers to grip the sides of the screws to remove and reinsrt them. When I finished the oven worked great, so I celebrated with another beer.
