First, we cut the power to the oven and removed the oven racks. I removed the two screws holding the old heating element in (removed easily, I didn't need any WD-40) and pulled the element wiring out of the back of the oven. It took me a while to realize how the wiring was/is connected to the element, but once I did they came off fairly easily with a little coaxing from some pliers. On our model, the wiring thingums fit down onto the element prongs. So, you pull the straight up to remove them. Very technical terms here. After the wires and the new element were connected, I screwed the new element in, turned the power back on and the oven was is excellent working order again.

The seal is suspended by metal clips at each end, which are inserted into holes in the oven box. The clips on the new seal were a bit too wide to fit into the holes. so I drilled the holes larger, and it worked fine.

My oven temperature knob has been discontinued by manufacturer Maytag. I looked thru your vast list of knobs and found one that looked excately like my knob dial. The knob is a two piece design. My shafts that the knobs slide onto are different than the one I selected but since it was a two piece knob, I was able to use the center part of my knob that fit the shaft of my oven and use the new dial face. I spayed it with a clear lacqure top coat to protect the dial face from the numbers and letters disappearing as the old on did. Worked perfectly. Happy wife, happy life. I will give your customer service an A plus as one of the dial knobs that came in a not so well protected package was bent. They agreed to send out another right away which they did. I would definately purchase from you again. Thanks so much

Take off the old knobs & put on the new knobs. They work & look great. Based on the age of the oven in the older home I purchased I was very concerned I would be unable to replace, but you made this very easy to do. Thank you.

bake element in lower oven had burned out

  • Customer: Kevin from Berkeley, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I made the mistake of thinking that, if the oven was off, there would be no voltage to the heating element. Wrong! I removed the element, wearing rubber gloves just for safety, and had no problem. But when I put the wiring back on the new element and tried to slide it into the hole at the back of the oven, one of the wires brushed the metal, sparks flew, and melted one of the wires. Even though the oven was off, this wire was hot. The solution was, of course, just to turn off the circuit breaker, reconnect the wire, and slide the element back in. It works fine now.

Loosened the two screws holding the element, pulled the element out of the back of the oven, loosed the two wire leads connected to the back of the element, removed the broken part, placed the new element into the oven, reconnected the wire leads, pushed them back into the insulation in the back of the oven, repositioned the element into its place and replaced the two screws holding it into place with the new screws that came with the new part. Oven element fired right up first try without any further complications. One of the easiest appliance fixes I have ever done!
