I removed the piece of old lower baking element by unscrewing the screws attached to the back firewall, removed the wires attached to the element, reversed the same proceedures and replaced the new baking element. Done! Baking as usual. Thank you for the timely response on sending the part. Ordered online, received the part the next day! I'm glad I found you and I look forward to using your services again whenever the need may arise.

1. First unplug the range from the 220 outlet!!

2. Next I used a nut driver to remove the 2 screws that attach the bake element to the rear of the inside of the oven.

3. Pull the element toward the front of the range until you can unconnect the electrical wires by gently pulling on the connectors that attach the wires to the baking element.

4. Connect the new baking element to the electrical wires and re-attach to the rear of the oven with the two screws removed in step 2.

5. Plug the range back into the 220 outlet and test the oven......

It doesn't get any easier than that!! And to think that I was considering calling a repair man......

It appears the part burned out.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. The two wires were held together with clamps. Use a small screwdriver to loosen the clamp and disconnect the wires. Then insert the new bake element. I now have an oven that works and didn't have to call a repair man!

Coil burnt out

  • Customer: james from amelia, OH

First I turned of power to range at breaker box. Next i found socket that fit small screws that secured bracket to back of oven. Then I removed the two screws. I then carefully pulled coil ends out of back of over with wires attached. I carefully removed slide on connectors from each end of coil by holding coil and grasping connector not the wire. They are on fairly tight but a firm steady pull will remove them. I then connected new oil by firmly pushing connectors on new coil ends. I carefully put coil ends back into the holes at back of over where old coil came from. I then lined up holes of bracked with holes for screws in oven. I then use srews to secure bracket . Do not over tighten these. Bracket just needs to be flat and secure against back of oven..Turn power back on .I saved myself $100 for a service call for a simple fix.
