I want to replace the bottom oven panel under the heating element
I have burnt the finish off, I know I'm supposed to remove the heating elements before I do anything but it looks like a special tool is required to remove them. Then after I remove them how do I get the old panel out?

Phil. If you do not have voltage at the element, then the Electronic Oven Control ( EOC ) has failed. Part number # 5701M403-60
In order to check for the correct voltage at the element you will need to remove power and pull the range out of its installed location and remove the back panel of the range to gain access to the wiring and element. CAUTION ! I cannot stress this enough ! There are dangerous voltages in this area!! After the panel has been removed, return power to the range,set the lower oven to bake, and check the voltage at the element. You should find 220-240 volts between the element terminals with them connected to the element. If you do not have the proper voltage then you will need to replaced the EOC.
sounds like the upper element is burnt or the fuse is burnt.check the fuses first,by opening the access panel at the top and rear of the range,check the fuses to verify that they are good,if okay then open the oven door and remove the element and inspect the contacts and element for burn marks or breaks.if so replace either the element or the burnt contacts.
you are right jsrock, there is an element under the floor pan, but if this person bought it from someone (not a dealer) that may explain the lack of knowledge. The benefit here is in the cleaning, and not having to lift the heating element to place foil or teflon sheets underneath as in "the old days." I like it this way better!
The heating element may be burnt out, you will need to replace this element if it does not heat up when the oven is turned on, try turning the oven to broil if the top element heat up then indeed it is the bottom element and need replacing.
IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR HEATING ELEMENT HAS BURNT OUT TO FIX FIRST TURN OFF THE POWER THEN LOCATE THE SCREWS HOLDING THE INSIDE PANEL ON REMOVE ALL SCREWS AND PANEL YOU SHOULD SEE THE ELEMENT REMOVE IT FROM ITS CONNECTION PLUG THEN BRING IT TO A ELETRICAL AND PLUMMERS SUPPLY STORE FOR REPLACEMENT REFIT IT TO YOUR OVEN AND IT SHOULD WORK FINE.
IT SOUNDS LIKE THE ELEMENT HAS BURNT OUT ,TO FIX THIS FIRST TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE COOKER , THEN LOCATE THE SCREWS ISIDE THE OVENS BACK PANEL REMOVE AND TAKE OFF PANEL YOU SHOULD SEE THE ELEMENT REMOVE IT FROM THE CONECTOR BY PULLING IT OUT BUT FIRST UNCLIP IT , THEN BRING THE ELEMENT TO AN ELECTIRCAL AND PLUMMERS SUPLY STORE FOR NEW REPLACEMENT THEN FIT NEW ELEMENT AND YOUR OVEN SHOULD BE LIKE NEW, GOOD HUNTING.
Assuming that you installed the replacement correctly, can you check the element with a resistance meter?
It's possible the replacement element you bought was faulty. But first, we want to ensure that the oven is otherwise functioning correctly. You'll need that resistance meter to check continuity along the red wire (i'm presuming) that connects your top and bottom element to your selector knob. Also make sure there are no internal fuses in your oven that may have blown.
Please remember to turn the oven off at the breaker board before working inside it.
hi!!! All you have to do is go and buy a new heating bake element..turn off the power to the oven by the home breaker..then move the oven away from the wall and remove the back panel screws and look for the baking element it has 2 wires going into it.Very easy to fix..good luck..
easy get the model number off the stove,look on top panel back or inside the oven door,call your local appliance part store with model number,remove the back panel and you will see 2 leads for the bottom heating element remove leads,inside oven are 2 screws holding element on remove pull out old element replace with new one,let me know how you did,thanks-mike
CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE TERMINALS OF THE BAKE ELEMENT. GAIN ACCESS BY REMOVING THE BACK PANEL OF THE RANGE. SOMETIMES THE TERMINAL WILL BURN OFF OF THE WIRE GOING TO THE ELEMENT. THE WIRE WILL JUST BE HANGING THERE. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE OVEN BEFORE REMOVING BACK PANEL. IF THE WIRE IS BURNT, REPLACE THE TERMINAL AND REATTACH TO THE ELEMENTS TERMINAL. IF THE TERMINAL IS DAMAGED, REPLACE BAKE ELEMENT.
IF THERE IS NO VOLTAGE TO THE ELEMENT, REPLACE CONTROL.
