Element cracked in two pieces
Shut off circuit breaker to stove and collected the tool from the basement. Turned on flashlight. Unscrewed the two hex nuts from the old element/back of the oven. Slid the old element prongs out of the back, exposing the connecting wires. Pulled the connecting wires off of the old element, carefully, so that the connections wouldn't come off of the wires. Threw the old element pieces in the garbage. Connected the new element to the connecting wires and re-fastened the hex nuts. My husband had wanted to call the repair man, but it didn't look too difficult, so I decided to try it on my own. Boy was he surprised when I fixed it, and for a fraction of the cost of hiring a repairman! Ladies, we can do this ourselves!!! :) Thank you for being there for us to order our part from, Parts Select, we had our new part in less than 24 hours, so the shipping was blazing fast!!! Keep up the good work!!! :)

heating element went out
My husband called our one and only parts store and got a price of $50 for the element. I used a search engine over the weekend and found the same thing for almost half the price. I received an email that said the element was shipped out on Monday, and it arrived on Tuesday afternoon! So my husband removed the two screws that hold the element in place, then replaced it with a new one. I am back in business for the holidays!

Oven's bake element had cracked and was no longer working.
The element is attached to the back of the oven by two small screws. After unplugging the electricity to the oven and removing the attaching screws with a socket set (6.5 mm), you are able to pull the element several inches out from the back of the oven. Doing so exposes where the wiring is connected to the ends of the baking element. The element disconnects from the wiring with a light tug, after which the new element can be connected. I leave the "real" fix-it jobs to the pros ... this was a simple repair that anyone can do.

Back Burner didn't function
We moved into our townhouse about 6 yrs ago. During the home inspection we checked the range and saw the Red light come on when we turned on each burner. After moving in we realized the large back burner did not work. The light came on but the element never got hot. I of course replaced the element but that did not work. Several years passed and we just ignored the issue. We just got by with 3 burners. Lately we realized how much easier it would be to have all four burners working. Knowing that we will be selling our townhome soon we figured we should either fix the problem or replace the range.

I didn't want to call a repair man because I didn't want to be charged a $150 to have him come out and they to pay extra for parts (and of course a 2nd visit). So I went to www.Partselect.com and typed in the model of my range. Found the diagrams for my range and saw that from the switch ran a pair of wires to a Universal Receptacle (aka Terminal Block Kit). I figured since the Red light turns on when I turn the switch on it has to be the Terminal Block.

I ordered the part from www.Partselect.com ($14.00 including shipping) and replaced the part. The burner still would not get hot. I decided to test the switch. I removed the Control Panel cover (which is secure by 2 screws just below the digital clock). Once the cover was off, I saw the Blue wires going from the switch to the Terminal Block. To test the switch, I disconnected the two Blue Wires from connectors H1 and H2 and temporarily connected them to H1 and H2 of another switch. Sure enough, when I turned the other switch the element got hot.

So I placed another order from www.Partselect.com for a replacement switch ($50 including shipping). When that part came, I flipped the electrical circuit going to the range. I then removed the Control Panel cover again. With the new switch in hand (holding it near the old switch still attached to the Control Panel, I used the pliers to pull out each wire from it's connector and place it to it's corresponding connector on the new switch. Once all the wires were connected to the new switch, I pulled the knob of the switch off then used a phillips screwdriver to remove the two screws holding the switch to the control panel. I replaced the old switch with the new one put the screws back in, replaced the knob. Turned the circuit back on and tested to make sure that the element got hot. When it did, then I replaced the Control Panel cover and enjoyed a nice dinner that was cooked in less time than we're accustomed to because of the new burner. So I spent a total of $64.00 to fix our range. Less than half the amount I would've spent if I called for a technican. And far less then buying a new range.

Partselect is a great resource for information. They have diagrams and schematics available to view and/or download. And when ordering it's a snap because there's an "Add to Cart" button next to each part it lists. So there's no confusion. I've already recommended Partselect.com to about 5 people. And will continue to do so!!

Oven element burnt and broke into two pieces.
FIRST THING! UNPLUG THE OVEN! After I made sure there was no residual charge left in the oven I took a 1/4 inch socket wrench and attached to an interchangable screwdriver and crawled in the oven. I removed both screws and gently pulled on the element until the wire leads came thru. I then unplugged the leads and replaced the element with the new element and plugged them in. Then gently slipped the leads back into the oven and replaced the screws. Turned on the oven and WHA LA!! We had our oven back and running and had chocolate chips cookies in a flash! It was fast and easy and saved me a fortune!

drawer was tilting and wouldn't slide open easily.
The old glides were broken off so I didn't know I needed these glides until I saw the parts section of the Manuel. When they arrived I snapped them in with no effort at all.
P.S. The shipping is fantastic here......i ordered on Monday received them on Tuesday. Now that's shipping:>)

Replacing Broken Parts
The two back door glides were missing and broken (one of each), and needed to be replaced. Finding the parts online was MUCH easier than I expected,and the repair was remarkably simple. Parts snapped into place, the drawer had to be lined up, and it slid right into place. Very easy!

Cord was not tightened enough by delivery crew.
PF alarm appeared on display. Noticed clicking when cord was moved. Had arced for some time and melted original block. New part slightly different. Only has 3 lugs, old one had six. Stack using washers provided. Take note of colors before disassembly. Use caution while working through access opening. The edges are sharp. Only tools needed are phillips screwdriver, deep socket for lug nuts. Nut driver optional. Hope this is helpful.
