Home Repair & Remodeling : How to Replace the Element in an Oven

Hi, I'm Tim Gipson I'm going to talk to you about how to replace an element in the oven

In all your typical ovens you have a lower element and an upper element And these plug in to the main electrical source in the back of the oven And to replace these all you need to do, there are two quarter inch hex head screws that hold the security plate in place And I'm not going to remove this particular one because you don't want to remove an element if it's a good element So we'll just do this for demonstration purposes

But you would unscrew these two screws here and then slide that element out Now of course it's very important to make sure that your power is turned off whenever you do this So you want to go to your main breaker, identify the breakers for your oven and you want to turn those breakers to the off position Anytime you're dealing with any kind of electrical elements, something like that, you want to make sure that that power is cut So, once you remove that, then you can take that element and you can take it to the home improvement store, you can take it to the place where you actually purchased your appliance and they should be able to help you match up with a similar element to come back in

But it's really more or less just an unplug and plug in type of operation from when you do that And that's all there is to it So I'm Tim Gipson and that's how to replace an element in your oven
