You have to shut the power off to the machine or unplug it then remove the element,you need to use needlenose plyers and move the connector side to side to slide it off or use two pair of plyers,grab onto the element close to the connector and grab the connector with the needlenose and use the plyers that you grabed the element with so you can touch them together so the needlenose will be hitting the plyers and when you push up on the connector it will pop off,or grab the element close to the connector and with a strait bladed screw driver pop the connector off with that,stick the blade under the connector and hitting the side of the plyers,push down on the screw driver and it will hit the plyers giving you the leverage to pop off the connector.i hope you can understand how i'm trying to explain this to you,also some of the connectors have screws through them,make sure there are no screws through the connectors.i hope this helps you,some of those connectors feel like they were welded on from the heat so i know what you're talking about,just have some patience and you'll get them off.

The main oven doesn't heat but the main oven grill function does heat up! I'm not sure if this means the element is no longer working or if it is a problem with the control switch?


Make sure the power is off, then there should be two screws holding the element to the back wall remove them. Pull the element out until you can get to the wires, sometimes a wire will burn off at the connector, if that's the case replace it with a high temp connector if not disconnect both wires and do a continuity check on the element

We have a GE electric stove with a JDP 39 oven element which has burned out. How do we get the bottom heating element out to replace it?


UNPLUG the stove or turn off its breaker.

Inside the oven, trace the element back to the rear wall. There should be one screw on each side next to where the element goes through the rear wall. Unscrew that screw on each side and pull the element toward you - it'll come easily, bring its wiring behind it (this is why there must be NO power to the stove!). Detach the wiring from the element... DO NOT allow the wires to pull back through the wall, or you'll have to pull the whole range out to retrieve them.

To install the new element, just reverse that procedure.

Heating element disconnected


Make sure to keep breaker to oven off because wire could short against back of oven and start a fire. You need to disconnect the tilt bracket and pull the oven out. Replace the clip on the wire if needed. Make sure to reattach tightly. Put it back in the wall, reattaching anti-tip bracket. It should work.

Frigidaire wall oven CPEB30S8CC2 lower element does not work


We have a Frigidaire CPE30S8CC2 with the bottom bake element not working. We tried to replace it with no luck. The old element does not look burnt out at all. The timer, clock and broil all work just fine. The bake button works and you can set the temp. it just doesn't actually heat up at all. There are no knobs on the controls for any cook top. it is all on a circuit board for overn only. help?

I have a Thermodor SCD302ZP Double Convention Oven. Does the lower heating element come out from the front of oven or do you need to gain access to rear in order to test/replace it? I removed the...


that model number doesn't come up.first make sure the power is off to the machine,you have 240 volts going to that element,all the thermodor ovens i worked on come out from the front,there should be two phillips screws holding it in place,remove the screws and pull the element forwards,some of them you have to lift the element up the end that goes through the wall is bent up so the wires don't hit the metal wall behind it.on some the wires are very short so don't be surprised if they pop into the hole on you,try to hold it with a needle nose,have the other element in there and stick the wire right on the new element so you don't loose the wire into the hole,if that happens you might have to pull the oven and remove the back panel.good luck and i hope this helps you

How do you replace the bottom heating element


Turn off power to oven, remove two screws on heating element mount, pull heating element from wall of oven, remove two screws connecting electric leads to heating element.

To install new element, reverse steps. Make sure screws connecting heating element to wires are very tight -- otherwise they will arc.

My whirlpool electric oven broils but doesnt bake. model rf385pcwn1


Hi
The possibilities are a bad Bake element, a broken wire to the Bake element or a bad control board.
You have to remove the Bake element or to pull the range off the wall to perform the troubleshooting and find out which part is bad.
You have to inspect the wires, then remove the wires from the Bake element and check the element for continuity.
If there is nothing wrong then you have to check for 120VAC between each wire and ground and for 240VAC between the wires while the control calls for Bake. If there is no proper voltage then the control board has to be replaced.


However To remove old element, there are 2 bolts/screws on the back of the oven, attached to the element. There will be a silver bar holding the screws/bolts to the back of the oven.
Remove these screws/bolts with either a screwdriver or pliers by turning to the left.

After unscrewing the bolts, pull element out. It will have the electrical wires attached to it with a clamp on each side. Pull wire clamps up to remove the element.
Remove new element from box. Slide new element clamps up into the wires coming out from the back of your oven. (There will be "legs" to hold the element up from the bottom of the oven. These go on the bottom for support of the element).
Tighten existing screws/bolts onto oven through the holes in silver bracket. Do not tighten too much, just make sure is secured.
Turn electricity breaker on and plug oven into outlet. Turn on to 350 and see if it heats up.

Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.

Zanussi zuf270x main oven not getting hot


I've just mended this myself and it took about 15 mins:-)
It's more than likely the heating element, you can get one off the internet for about £20 if you go for the electrolux replacement.
Open oven door and remove the trays, undo the four small screws on the back wall inside - not sure if you have to, but I turned the power off at this point. Better safe than not! Turn this around to the right wall as it won't come right out due to the bit of wire on the right (temp sensor maybe?).
If you've already got the new element you can guess what happens next; take out the 3 small screws holding in the element and gently pull towards you. It's attached to two wires poking out of two holes - take the bottom one off first as it seemed to have less tendency to fall back in the hole (I reckon that could be a real pain to get back).
Hold the wire still and wiggle the old element to remove as you will have less chance of damaging the wire that way. Reconnect the wires to the new element and pop it back together again.
Job done and after a year of waiting we now have double the oven space!

GE P7 Wall oven had bad thermostat????


IF YOUR HEATING ELEMENT IS GETTING ORANGE HOT, AND CYCLING, I WOULD SUSPECT THE THERMOSTAT TO BE THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM. YOU MAY FIND IT HARD TO FIND ONE THOUGH DUE TO ITS AGE.
