    You can try getting the wires back using a rigid wire, too hook up the wires.

    When this happens, the regular solution is making the hole in the wall bigger , so to access the wires and get them back.

Broiler element heats up but smoke comes from behind where element it plugs into

Hello Paul;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

You either have grease burning, insulating material burning or a short in the electrical wiring behind your oven back wall.

Do not use your broiler until the issue is fixed.

Turn the power off at your breaker box. Pull the oven out so you can get behind it. Remove the back cover and assets the problem.

Go into the following website, put in your model number and you will get diagrams, part numbers and cost. If you need a part, record the part number and search the internet for best price.

How do I change an element from my stove which is a deluxe 234 model..very old stove but goe's well

Unplug the range from the wall first. Just raise the cook top and the elements are attached to the bottom of it, probably by four screws. Note how the wires are plugged in then unplug them, unscrew the element that don't work, screw the new one in plug the wires back and put the cook top back down. The wires should have blade connectors to easily unplug and replug.

Oven not highering up

  • 1 Turn off the power to the oven at the breaker box.

  • 2 Take out the screws holding the element bracket in place. These will be on the back wall of the oven, or sometimes on the top.
  • 3 Pull the element toward you a little bit until you see the wires behind it.

  • 4 Unscrew the leads and take the bad element out.
  • 5 Hold the new element up while you attach the wires to it. Don't stretch the wires any more than you have to.
  • 6 Line up the element while tucking the wires back in. Be sure not to pinch the wires between the bracket and the back wall.
  • 7 Fasten the brackets, making sure they're tight.
  • 8 Restore power to the appliance.
  • Buy Performance parts.

    I have a rheem warrior glass water heater serial no rh1199629294 model no 71-308 i need to know where the reset button is please?

    You should have an access plate on top and at bottom. Before removing the covers, turn off the breaker that controls the water heater. Now unscrew the top cover. There may be some insulation covering the thermostat (the control that shows the temperature to heat the water to). Move any insulation out of the way and you should see a red button on the front of the thermostat. Press the button. You may feel a click, you may not. Now go over and turn the breaker back on and listen to the heater. KEEP HANDS AND EVERYTHING CLEAR OF THE THERMOSTAT IN THE OPENING.
    Do you hearing gurgling or whining? This would indicate it is heating water. If you hear it, turn the breaker back off and put any insulation back in and replace the access cover. Go back and turn on the breaker and you are done. If you didn't hear anything now it is time to pull the lower access cover. Make sure the breaker is off and remove the lower cover. Repeat by removing insulation and pressing the button. Test by turning on the circuit breaker REMAINING AWAY FROM THE ACCESS.
    If this time you hear hissing/gurgling/whining sounds it is on. Turn off the breaker, replace the insulation and replace the access. Now turn the breaker back on and you are done. If after all this you get nothing. It is time for a voltmeter and caution.
    You will need to remove each access door (with the circuit breaker off) and make it to where you can test for voltage on the power connections to the elements. Start at the bottom as this is the initial element powered by the unit. Put your voltmeter on a high scale (500VAC is good but it must be set to minimum 300VAC-High is fine-lower is bad) and put your probes on the 2 phillips head screws/bolts that the electrical wires connect on. You should see apx 220-240 VAC. If not, test from one screw to the metal fame of the tank where you see the green wire bolted to. You should see 110-120 VAC. If no voltage is at the bottom, the top reset isn't working. Try resetting the top thermostat again. Test for voltage at bottom. No luck? It may be time to replace the top thermostat/control. All major hardware stores sell them. Disconnect the wires and it should slide up and off the unit. Replace it.
    If there is voltage at the bottom then the element is most like gone bad. To test this, turn off the breaker and unhook one of the screws that holds the power wire to one side of the element. Put your voltmeter on Ohms and test for a connection (continuity). If it shows a reading the element may be working or it may just have a small connection internally and fail when it is powered up. This is a tough one to diagnose outside the tank but if you see no connection (no reading) the element has broken in the tank and removal and replacement is in order. Turn off the water to the tank along with the breaker. Connect a garden hose to the valve at the bottom of the tank and drain the water out. Disconnect the wires and with a large element removal tool (you might get away with a large channel lock but if you round off the element you will hate yourself) remove the element. You can get the remover at the hardware stores for $8-10. The elements usually have their wattage on the end so replace it with the same wattage element. Reverse the process and lastly turn on the water, check for leaks then turn the circuit breaker back on. You should hear a hissing/gurgling/whining sound as the element heats up. good luck and BE SAFE!

    Need a manual for kenmore electric 164D3871P002. The bottom element is bad. Thanks

    Sorry, I don't have a service manual, but I can give you the general procedure for removing the bottom element (replacing is the reverse procedure).
    1. Unplug the oven
    2. Pull it away from the wall far enough so you can work behind it see what you are doing.
    3. Remove the screws from the back panel behind the oven. Sometimes there are additional plates, covers or baffles that need to be removed to let the back come off. Make notes as you go if you are concerned you may not be able to keep track of everything for reassembly. This is the hardest part of the job.
    4. Take a peek inside the oven at the back where the element attaches to the wall. If there are screws holding the element there, remove them. You will be looking for the corresponding location behind the oven in the next step.
    5. Identify the two wires going to the oven heating element terminals. They are almost always attached to the element with screws, but a few may use push-on terminals. Disconnect these wires. If push-on terminals are used, do not pull them off by pulling on the wires; grasp the terminals themselves and pull while holding the element terminals with needle-nose pliers. If necessary, polish or replace any burned terminal connectors.
    6. Remove the old element and do any needed cleanup inside the oven.
    7. Set the new element in place and reverse steps 5-1.
    Almost all electric ranges have a wiring diagram somewhere in the back, sometimes on the inside of the back cover. If you find it, look for the item marked "oven heating element" or a similar name (not broiler or upper oven element, of course). There should be abbreviations next to it for the colors of the wires, with the solid color listed first followed by the stripe color (e. g., RED/GRY for a red wire with a grey stripe). This will help you confirm that you have the correct wires (it is unlikely that there will be anything else in that area of the oven except the connector for the power cord). If you get mixed up about which wire goes to which terminal on the element, don't worry, it works the same either way in this case.

    The small oven will not get hot. we called viking service and he said the wire on the bottom element came off and fell through the hole in the back of the oven. this seems impossible to me since we never...

    yes you will discover a panel I just don't know how big the panel is and how big to cut the hole. If it were me I would try to pull the range out and work on it. If that is imposible to do without damage then cut a hole big enough to see the panel so you know where to cut and how big the panels are more towards the bottom make sure powere is off at the breaker first

    Whirpool electric oven replacing bake element

    In addition to what aborcass stated, I just had to fix the same problem. Remeber to turn off the power before you do this. On my stove the element acess is behind the side panel (right side when facing the stove). You remove two screws on the back and one underneath at the bottom, (you need to pull out the drawer). Once screws are out, slide the side panel forward gently about an inch and it should just drop off.
    You should see the wires for the element level with the bottom of the stove. The wires will guide you to the element. And you should see that the element is screwed in with two screws to the stove. This is the tricky bit, to remove the element follow the metal piece holding the element to the right until you see a third screw. Remove this screw and the whole thing will come out. Take off the wires, replace the element on the metal strip, slide the element and metal strip back into the stove (take care to ensure the left side of the metal strip slides into the proper position under the metal clasp. Re-attach the screw, plug the wires onto the element and turn the power back on. You should have heat.
    Good luck.

    Bottom oven element

    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!
