How do you replace elements?
ANSWER Hello Greg. 1. Turn off the electrical supply to the range.
2. Open the oven door and remove the screws
from under the front of the maintop, then close
the oven door.
3. Slide the maintop forward and remove the
ground wire and main harness strain relief
from the rear of the maintop.
4. Lay a protective covering between the maintop
and the range to protect the finish, then turn
the maintop over and lay it on the covering so
that you can access the components. 5. Disconnect the wires from the terminals of the
limiter, and remove the screws, then pull the sensor tube out of the
element, and remove the limiter. If you are
only replacing the limiter, carefully install the
new limiter in the element, and reconnect the
wires to the terminals. 6. At the back of the maintop, remove the screw
from the retaining bracket that contains the
defective surface element and limiter, then
carefully raise the end of the bracket, and lift
the element and limiter from the maintop. 7. If you are replacing a surface element, disconnect
the wires from the terminals and
reconnect them to the new element, then carefully install the limiter in
the new surface element.
8. Remove the old element, clean the glass of
any debris, and install the new element.
9. Reinstall the maintop and reassemble the
range. REASSEMBLY NOTE: When reinstalling
the maintop, make sure that it is centered
on the range, that the side brackets are engaged,
and that the rear side flanges are
inside the end caps. Hope this helps.
