Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges
The lower element stopped working! Can I replace this myself? It's less than a year old.
Hello. You can certainly DIY, and here's how: Trip the breaker for the stove at the main panel, and be sure that all power is off at your stove/oven. Depending on your particular model, you will either disconnect the element from the wiring at the rear if the oven, or it will unplug from the inside, usually after loosening two screws adjacent to the element. Either way, remove the element. If you have an electrical meter and know how it's used, you can test the element for continuity. An open circuit would indicate that it is defective. If you do not have a meter, you can just take the element with you to an appliance parts supply business, and they'll test it for you. I always take my old part with me, so I can make sure that the part I purchase has the same terminals as the one removed. Installation is the reverse of the removal.
Hope this helps you!
