bottom trim had rusted, so we needed new piece

  • Customer: Robin from Apple Valley, MN
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

  • Tools Required: Socket set

Removed oven door (made sure hinges were locked open and stayed open). Remove part on top of trim, removed rusted trim and replaced with new trim. Replaced part on top of trim and screwed all back together. Put oven door back on and unlocked hinges. It was easier than the trial run (when I hadn't realized that the hinges weren't locked open!)

The trim piece on the bottom of the door was rusted making the unit look really dirty and used.

It was pretty simple. Just remove the door as the bottom piece holds all the parts together. Place on table top and remove old trim. Install new trim and install door. The only difficult part was the trim had a space for the glass door front. I opened up the space so that the glass would seat easier. Went together real easy. Stove looks like it's brand new.

I unpluged stove then opened slightly oven door and lifted it off to get closer. Then with a light to help I took out two screws and pulled the element out. I didn't need pliers to get the wires that are put on with slide on clips. you may need a pair. put wires on slide in place put screws back ,replace door, plug it in and test. Very easy.

Of course the first thing is to turn off the breaker, Unplug the appliance, pull the two electric feed wires off the old element. Then remove the four screws that hold the fan guard in, After that the two screws that held the Bake Element in place. Then reverse the process to install the New Element. Took about twenty mins. from start to finish. Just Like New. And thanks to Parts Select for their prompt service, Had the new part in two business days.

Bottom wall oven heating element failed

  • Customer: Jeffrey from Pawling, NY
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
While I appreciate all the various parts available from PartSelect, I was disappointed that the only heater element that was approximately the right size and shape for my wall oven had push-on prongs. My original was screw-on.

Thus, I had to (very) carefully drill through the somewhat thick metal tabs to get screws into them. This meant holding the tabs with a pliers while I drilled them out to make sure that I did not break off the tab. Then, I increased the hole size by using increasing diameter drill bits. I let the screws self-tap, but again this was done carefully to avoid breaking off the tabs. Finally, I found that the part of the new heater element going through the back wall of the oven was an inch or so longer than the original. This did not seem to cause a problem of overheating outside the oven. At least not so far!

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.

First shut the power to the stove,then had to slide the stove out so I could get at the back to remove the panel screws.Once you have the back off remove the knob on the front.Under the knob is 2 phillips screws that you need to remove.Next I took the new switch and matched up the wires to the old switch.Reinstall is the reverse.Once the switch is in place you must remove the excess shaft to match the length of the old one.This is done with the use of 2 pliers,you grasp the shaft with both pliers and snap it off where you need it.The kit comes with spacers so you have got to match up the right one so the switch is solid on the shaft.This finishes the project,next turn the power back on and check that all is working ok.Job finished.
