I've already called the parts department down the street from me and they have the element in stock. I am just curious about how often this happens, as I've been working with electric ranges for 40+ years and have not had this happen before. I am curious if this would be considered a warranty replacement or not.

A:

I understand your concern about this element failure. This is not a normal occurrence. A short or failure in the element can occur at any time but that failure rate is extremely low. It is not due to faulty manufacturing or design. Since the range is beyond the 1 year warranty period, that part or repair will not be covered. We do offer free repair advice through this Manage My Life website so that you can repair that failure yourself if you want to. I recommend that you unplug the range and check that terminal block on that burner before you replace that element and use it. Here is a link for a video that shows how to replace that terminal block if it is damaged (as I suspect that it is): Terminal Block Replacement . You can order a terminal block for that burner from the Sears PartsDirect website if necessary. The part number for that terminal block kit is 5303935058. Here is a direct link for that part: Terminal Block Kit .

If you need more help, let us know.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician examine and repair the range, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
