Easy as removing 2 screws, pulling the wires through the back wall of the oven so I could connect the new element and replacing everything. Honestly, it only took around 8 minutes.

Take handle off, then back cover. Of course unplug power. Switch wasn't built exactly like the original but all you have to do is connect each wire to the same letter, number code as on the old one . Works like brand new!

1 - Turn off the power from the panel. 2 - Unplugged the range from outlet. 3 - Unscrewed the black hex screws from the rear panel. 4 - Took a pic of the bad infinite burner switch to ensure the correct wires would connect to the new switch. 5 - Removed knob and unscrewed switch, then replaced with new switch. Matched all of the wires to like, L1, L2, P, H1 and H2. If any wires do not exist for your switch, it is ok because not all ranges use all wires.

My oven element broke in half and looked charred

  • Customer: Denise from CLINTON TWP, MI
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

I flipped the 220 circuit breaker to shut off the electricity. I unscrewed the old element (2 screws). One problem I ran into was that there was insulation packed tight around the old wire, so when I went to pull it out one of the connectors came undone. So I had to take the small plate off the back of the stove and fish the wire back through. I connected the new wires and screwed the element to the back. I only needed a square head screw-driver for the whole job. It would've taken me 5 minutes if I wouldn't have had to fish the wire back through. Still, it only took around 20 minutes and was really easy. The element cost me less than half of what an appliance repair shop charged. I'm a woman, and I've never attempted anything like this before but the video made it so easy to do! Thanks for saving me a bundle of money!

Turn off the power to the range. Remove oven racks. Remove the two screws and slowly pull the element out being careful not to pull the wires off. Remove the two wires then attach them to the new element. Push the element back in place, put the screws back in, turn on the power and turn on oven to make sure the problem is fixed
