First, verify it is the problem. (A working element has a conductive core, or wire, all the way through it). If the core wire is broken, it is defective. To verify it is broken, use an Ohmmeter - if value is above 500 Ohms the core is likely broken. Replace it.

To test without an Ohm meter, use a flashlight bulb and flashlight batteries, some wire and run the loop through the element. If bulb lights, core is ok.

If broken, take it in to any small appliance store as most oven elements are VERY similar. Likely they will have one in stock. They will be cheaper than over the internet.

Appliance Repair Meridian - Oven Bake Element Replacement


Oven Bake elements are relatively easy to replace but there are extra precautions that need to be taken. Do not touch, reposition, or remove element without unplugging the appliance. On some ranges there is always L2-120V that is live - not switched in but there constantly. If you happen to touch the element, if it's broken, you can become enlightened very quickly.

Anyway, on with the replacment. Remove two screws from the inside back wall to release back element. Carefully and patiently, work the back element towards you to expose the wire terminals. Disconnect wire terminals and install in reverse order.

Not sure if oven element is broken or something else


If the element is cracked it is definitely bad you need to disconnect the power source and remove whatever is securing it into the oven and replace it.

KitchenAid Model KESC307 has a broken oven heating element. Can you fix this yourself? How? How much is part?


Hello Tgilreath,

I understand that you are having a problem with you KitchenAid range. The oven element is broken and needs replaced and you would like to know the cost of the element.

I can instruct you on how to change the element in your range. However, I do not know if it is the top of bottom element and the change procedure is the same on both of them. However, when looking up the element to tell you where you can purchase and the cost I came across many different KitchenAid models that contained the numbers you gave. There should be more letters and numbers on your tag for the model.

The following is steps are how you change out your element:

1. Disconnect the power to the unit
2. Remove the lower back cover on your range (the one that sits directly behind your oven)
3. Locate the two prongs on the bad element sticking thru the oven wall and remove the wires
4. In the oven remove the racks
5. In the oven remove the two screws holding the element in place
6. Remove the element by pulling in forward
7. Install new element in Reverse

You can locate the element on Sears Parts Direct at the following web-page, however you will need the full model number http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/kesc307?pathTaken=modelSearch&prst=0&shdMod=kesc307 You may also reply to this thread and I will get you a part number and the exact page you need to order the part.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Upper oven broiler element broken. Need to remove and replace


Yes you can replace it yourself. Make sure the breaker is off or the oven is un-plugged. When elements fail and burn out they will not stop until they have burned out completely.
The elements in this stove are simply held in place by a couple of quarter in head screws and the wires that connect to them are the push on connector type. There may be a support bar as well that you will need to remove as well to get the element out.
You can do this!
Good luck!

Oven does not get warm, suspect it is a fuses but cant locate it


It is probably due to a broken heating element in the oven. These are relatively easy to replace. You can test it with an ohmmeter. It should measure low ohms. If it is open circuit then it is broken.

Bottom oven heating element turned white hot and broke in the middle. Can I replace myself?


This is a common problem and easy repair. Locate the model number onside the oven door frame. Purchase the element based on the model number. TURN OFF the power to the oven. Unscrew the 2 screws inside the oven holding the element to the back wall. Gently pull the element forward. The wires will be short.Remove the wires from the broken element. Place them on the new element. Re-insert the element terminals and attach the screws.
TURN ON the power. Bake me some cookies and send them to me.
