Bake element broke into pieces!

  • Customer: Jeffrey from Mason, TX
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
I ordered to correct part from PartSelect with relative ease given I know nothing about oven repair. What's even more amazing, my wife who is not mechanically-minded, took the element home and replaced the broken one in 15 minutes with nothing but a pair of pliers. We live 22 miles from town so a repairman would have cost over $100 just to show up. Total cost = $36!

Element burned through

With the oven unplugged, I removed the protective plate from the back of the oven, and then I unplugged the old element from the contacts. There were two screws holding in the element inside the oven- after unscrewing these, the old element slid right in. After reconnecting everything and plugging the oven back in, all was good. Pretty simple.

Had to replace the baking element, which had burnt up.

Removed the cover plate, pulled the element out, removed the screws holding the wires in place, but then I had to enlarge the screw holes on the new element in order to fit the screws into the new element. Took a while with an awl to enlarge ther two holes. Connected the new element, pushed it back in and replaced the cover plate. Worked great.

Very simple and easly job.

Old Bake Element was corroded, broke in two

  • Customer: David from Champaign, IL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
First, used the nutdriver to remove the two screws that hold the element. Then pulled out the element 4 inches. Disconnected the two wires from the old element and discarded it. Connected the wires to the new element and tightened them a bit by squeezing with pliers (not too tight, but just enough so they won't disconnect easily). Pushed the wires back through the insulation and screwed the two nuts back in place, making adjustments so that the element is level.

I had a great experience with part select. The part was easy to find and arrive within two days in perfect conditions. Everything went smoothly with the repair and the element is working very well.

The control knob stem broke off when I moved the stove.

I located and removed 2 sets of hex-head screws under the front lip of the cooktop, then lifted the entire cooktop to access the burner controls. Removed the wires and taped them, and took out the old control after removing 2 phillips head screws. Installed replacement part easily. Only tricky part is that the various shaft adapters don't quite work with my knob. I'll fix it completely with a bit of epoxy and the adapters they sent.

Heat Element Went Out

I first read the repair stories on this website. I turned off the power to the range in the power box. I removed the 2 screws, pulled out the old heat element a little, then disconnected the wires from the connectors. I just reversed the steps to put the new one in and viola. Really simple. Parts came really fast too. At first I ordered the wrong part b/c I didn't look up the part using the model number, I just went by t he picture and the manf. name. I returned that and got refunded promptly, so make sure you order by model number b/c parts are made different for each appliance model.

Removed both racks, removed two screws holding element in. Removed two screws holding wires on element. Drilled holes in new element where the push-on connectors are attached so I could attach the oven wires to the new element. Attached the wires and screwed the element to the oven. Fit perfectly and the temperature of the oven matches the control knob finally!

Thanks.

I followed the easy instructions and everything went well. I had the new switch installed in about 30 minutes. My wires were different colors than on the instructions but it was still easy to figure out where the wires went on the new switch. Just do not be in a hurry and make sure you measure before you break off the extension bar. My knob fit on the new switch without any of the parts that came with the switch.

The heating element just stared sparking and then went out.
