The main thing you need to know is L-2 is always hot to the element. Which means you MUST unplug the power to the range to do the replacement. Yank out the bottom drawer and with any luck you will be able to unplug the stove without moving it. Once the power is disconnected use a screwdriver to remove the mounting screws as seen in this video:

    Thank-you, Dan. That was very helpful. My oven element connects on either side instead of the middle. Is the procedure the same?

    yep. just remember all stoves are hot to the element first through the 2nd hot wire. You will ruin the new element if it touches the stove while you are installing it if it touch AND it might fry yore asz as well. Cheers

Will just replacing the oven element fix my Kenmore model 911.955879range oven? It sparked, broke in two and a white flame continued going around the element, wouldn't stop I had to shut breaker off.


Hello Jennifer;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Good for you - turning off the breaker.

You have a older oven. Usually there is a spark or crack in the oven element. In your case the element was so embrittled it broke into 2 pieces.

Before you use the top range burners to be on the safe side you need to disconnect the oven element. You may have damaged the oven control board to where it is locked into power for the oven.

25713262-01ium3bsyoj5ql4fhv4kpwvp-4-0.jpg 1.) Remove the bottom drawer to reduce weight.
2.) Put a rug on the floor in front of the oven, so when you pull the oven out it does not scratch the floor.
3.) Pull the oven out so you can get behind it.
4.) Unplug the unit.
5.) Remove the back bottom cover.
6.) Disconnect the heating element and remove from oven.
7.) Rap the two loose element connections in the back with electrical tape.
8.) Follow the element loose connection to the control board at the top. Disconnect at the oven control board.
9.) Inspect the loose wiring from the control board to the heating element for burns or melting.
10.) Plug the oven back in and turn on the range burners.

The part number for the oven element is WB44T10014. Sears wants about $95.00 for this part. Search the internet for this part number and get it for about $28.00.

Your oven control board may have become damaged. Recently I replace one for a friend. Sears wanted $256.00. I got a remanufactured board over the internet for $30.00.

Get back to me and let me know what is going on.

My Crosley oven has a new element and timer and still will not heat up


It sounds like you need to replace the burner receptacle, in either the broiler or the bottom oven burner( heating element) or both. When it exploded it burned the contacts in the heating element.

Dryer not getting hot


This usually indicates that the heating element is burned out. To test, unplug dryer, access back, remove at least one of the two connections to the element (looks like the element in the oven of an electric stove), and measure the electric resistance of the element - if infinite or very high, the element needs replacing.

Bottom oven element sparked then quit working


The element sometimes will continue to arc inside after it burns out. It's 220 volts jumping across the break.
