Question about Maytag MER5775Q Electric Kitchen Range
The bottom oven element is bad. I removed, but the two connectors are not fixed to back wall. They seem to be loose behind it. Cannot simply push new element through holes to connect.
Do I need to pull stove out and remove back panel to access connectors so I can connect to element? Is the back panel easy to remove?
Yes you will have to remove the back panel , but first shut off the breaker to the stove as one of these wires go directly to the power cord. Normally I would tell you to unplug it but in trying to move it out you may cause one of the wires to touch the frame and ZAPPP you! So please b4 you go farther shut the breaker off. Once you have the stove pulled out, it should have several screws that hold the back on. Not a big deal. Push the element through and connect the wires. In the future be very careful as you are pulling the element out and usually the wires will stay connected and you can replace the element from the front. Just remember to shut the power off first!
