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.

Can one half of the radiant heating element on an Electrolux range go bad?

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.
  1. Contacts in the control switch could be burned out or seized,
  2. A wiring connector could be loose or oxidised
  3. The internal wiring may have developed a fault.
  4. The thermostat (if thermostatically controlled) may have failed
  5. 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.

What if I replaced a long heating element with a short one on my water heater?

Won't matter much... except long elements generally burn out less often than short ones since heat is spread across larger surface area .. assuming both elements are same wattage.
Lower wattage element will heat water less quickly by a few gallons per hour.

RUDD Model UBHC-21J18SFA: Emergency heat not automatically engaging. Used to work, now I must manually turn the thermostat to "Emergency Heat" to get the elements to engage. What's broken?

Sounds like your Auxillary heat is out (the element that is energized when an air to air heat pump can't keep up with the thermostat setpoints).

Baking & broiling elements won't heat after baking element burned out and was replaced.

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

Our Titan N-120 stopped heating suddenly so they suggested we change the elements. My husband bought 2 elements but apparently he didn't realize 1 is 5000W and the other 5500W. Now could this stil

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

The Oven won't heat up!

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 found defective.

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 defective.

***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.

2002 Chevy Impala driver's heated seat does not work

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.
