MARY ANN for model number rs596pxx8
Answer:

Hi Mary Ann, Thank you for your inquiry. There is a repair story that a customer has shared with us that help you. "First I cut off the power to the stove and double-checked to make sure no current was flowing to the unit. There were two screws attaching the bake element plate to the oven. I unscrewed the two screws and carefully pulled the bake element away from the oven exposing the contact wires. I carefully loosened the wire contacts from the bake element, slid the bake element off the contacts and then slid the new bake element onto the wire contacts. I gently clamped the contacts onto the bake element, pushed the wires back into the back of the oven and screwed back the bake element plate onto the interior of the oven. I turned on the power to test my work and I was done." I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Oven element caught on fire!!

My husband is an over-the-road driver, so I have to do all of the repairs myself. I went to the breaker box and turned off the power to the range. Then I removed 2 screws, pulled the element out about 3", and disconnected the wires. I then connected the wires to the new element, pushed it back in place, and replaced the screws. We had Parmesan Chicken for dinner and my children were thrilled!

The original bake element cracked, causing sparks and a small, brief fire on the crack. Next, the element would not heat.

First I turned off the circuit breaker to the oven. Then, I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches to disconnect the two wires. The connectors were tight, so required a little wiggling to disconnect the wires.

Upon receipt of the replacement element, I turned off the circuit breaker to the oven. Then, I reconnected the element wires, pushed the connect wires into the back of the oven, and rescrewed the unit in place. With the circuit breaker turned back on, I tested the oven. It worked great. Very easy!

The bake element burned out and the oven wouldn't heat.

First, my son pulled the range out and I unplugged it. Then he removed the 2 screws that hold the element in place. He then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the wires. Then he placed the new element in the oven, connected the wires and put in the screws back in. It worked immediately!!

The bottom element of the oven stopped working, therefore, we could not bake anything.

First, I turned the breaker off to the oven, that's the most important step.
Next, I turned on the oven to make sure the oven was not energized.
I then took out two phillips screws that were holding the baking element in place.
Next I pulled the element out slowly to expose the wires that connected to the element.
I removed the connecters, took out the damaged element, replaced it with the new element.
Last, I screwed the two phillips screws back in, and saved a $65.00 service call.

Old element arced bigtime so we figured it was time - 18 years old!

I read other other posts and followed their advice. Remove the 2 screws holding the element to the back of the oven...gently pull it out about 3" to reveal the connecting wires. I found the needle nose pliers were necessary to detach and reattach the wires. Don't yank! Be aware that the wires have a tendency to want to pull back into the back of the oven while they're loose. This was a wall oven and that woul've been a large problem if they they had. Otherwise it was a snap!

The baking element had burned out

First, turn the breaker off to the oven, you don't want to electrocute yourself. There are two screws that hold the element to the back wall of the oven, undo those and pull the element towards you. There are two terminals at each end of the element, take these off, then reattach to the new element and screw back in to the back wall of the oven. This process takes maybe all of five minutes
