Re: Need to Replace Heat ELements
You remove the screws that hold on the base plate that has the sequencers mounted on it. pulling it out so the elements clear the sides of the unit. once you remove it you can easily see the heating element coils which you can purchase a restring kit fairly cheap at your local appliance parts store. just remember to stretch it out uniformally the same length as the old one, reinstall the heat kit the same way you removed it. kit comes with new ceramic gromets if some are damaged. these units do have a 5 yr warranty on the heat strips.

Radiant heating elements are often dual elements and if your range uses these dual elements then yes, this is quite possible. However, other faults could cause a healthy element to not work properly.
Contacts in the control switch could be burned out or seized,
A wiring connector could be loose or oxidised
The internal wiring may have developed a fault.
The thermostat (if thermostatically controlled) may have failed
Multiple, consequential or other fault conditions may exist.
A DIY 'trial and error' fix may work first time, but could end up being more expensive (and risky) than getting a professional in with the knowledge, experience and test gear to diagnose the source and extent of the fault before ordering spare parts.
I hope this helps.
the surge from the original element burning out has destroyed the control board if you can't hear the relays on the board clicking when you power up the elements bake or broil then its either the low voltage side of the board,if you hear clicking then the relays are working but the contacts are burned out and can't pass the current to heat the oven or briol elements
the bigger wattage elements will heat quicker and consume more power
If they fit , they will work but you may have to check the amperage capacity of the circuit breaker
I imagine you are meant to replace the existing elements which woukd have been half what was purchased
sorry to say but when you drain an electric water heater and dont turn off the power to it . the elements fry. so make sure breaker is off drain tank and replace the elements refill and then turn breaker back on and all should be fine.hope this helps have a good day!
If the elements only works partially or not getting red hot at the
"Hi" setting, the problem might be with a burned out receptacle that
the elements plug into. If this is the case, replace both the
elements and the receptacle.
You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might
have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if
Another reason, why the elements will not start, might be a
defective infinite switch (located behind the control panel, with
the burner knob on its shaft). Replace the switch if found
***If the elements check out ok and, the Infinite switch(if equipped) is in good condition, you will then need to replace the ERC(electronic range control). it has failed.
I would imagine that if you only felt the extreme heat in two specific spots on the seat, the element may have burned out and you basically have an open curcuit. According to the wiring scematic, the elements in the back rest and the seat itself are connected so neither work now. I've tried removing the leather from my seats to figure out if I can just replace the elements, but the elements are molded into the foam in the seat. Your only solution may be to replace the entire seat or to buy a ******** seat warmer. Most of these ******** heat warmers are rather cheaply made, though.
