Lower bake element died

Step 1--cut power to the unit off at the breaker box! Step 2--take a deep breath and dive in. The most difficult part, after getting over the fear, was unscrewing the old unit from the back plate -- been there a LONG time. Step 3, slowly pull the old part forward to see the wires on either side of the old coil. Note how the 'clips' attach to the ends. Remove the old unit, being careful not to bend the clips. Slide the new part into the stove. Attach the clips until click securely--be careful not to bend; make sure the clips are secure or you risk losing the wire inside the stove. Once the clips are secure, gently and slowly slide the ends into the holes. The wires and ends will glide into a hole such that the plates on the part align with the back of the stove. Use the old screws and attach the face plate of the part to the back of the stove. The part may rest slightly above the bottom of the stove; this will resolve itself as the part 'adjusts' to the new environment. Turn the breaker back on and turn on the stove. There may be a slight odor the firs time the unit is used; I suggest leaving the door open and heat the coil completely for about 20 minutes. Should be ready to go. (The old unit should be discarded; ask your recycle team if they accept electronic parts or alert the garbage guys that the old part is in the weekly trask.)

Replacement of bake heating element

No instructions for installation came w/ part. Used some instruction from order web site that someone else had submitted. Once I figured out how the new part connected to the oven's wiring, it was a very easy to install. If you need to ever replace the bake unit all you need to do are basically 5 things: 1. Using a nut driver, remove the nut at each of the connection points of the old bake heating element (these are located at the back of the stove). 2. Slowly and gently pull the old element towards you until you see the wires that connect it to the back of the stove emerge from their holes. 3. Gently pull up the ends of the old bake unit which will remove it from the vertical wiring posts--don't let the wired posts slip back into the holes at the back of the oven--I used a little strip of tape to keep them from sliding back into their holes. 4. Gently slip the posts (one at a time) of the new bake unit down and over the vertical wiring posts connectors (press all the way down over the wiring posts) then w/ both hands gently squeeze both of the bake unit ends at the same time and slowly push them back into their holes until the fastening plates press against the back wall of the oven. 5. Align the nut holes, replace nuts and tighten them. I turned the oven on to make sure it worked and let it heat up for a 1/2 hour. Everything worked fine. Don't let this repair intimidate you--just use the right tools, take a deep breath, go slow and be gentle. I'm not in any way mechanically inclined and I did it--so can you.

Bake unit burned out

I'm a female so first instinct was to hire this job out until I came looking for the part price. I followed other folks instruction, unplugging the stove, removed the holding screws [2] inside using a nut driver, being careful to not allow the wires to slip into the back wall of the stove, pulled the element forward and unfastened the wires from the bake unit. Inserted the wires onto the new unit, lifted the unit up a bit to get the correct angle to slide it all back in place, returned the holding screws to position, plugged the stove back in, turned it on and viola - an cheap, easy, satisfying repair job. Thank you for all of the tips. I saved over a hundred dollars and learned a skill.

Oven would not get very hot.

I followed the instructions from a previous customer posted on your web site. The only tip I would add is make sure you get a snug connection on the element with the connectors on the wires. I used a pair of needle nose pliers and gave it a little squeeze. My concern was I didn't want the wires to come off when I pushed them back through the wall behind the insulation. We are having pizza tonight!
