Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

You may be able to get the door mechanism to operate and unlock by programming and starting a "Clean" cycle. Open the door and locate the oven door light plunger in the upper left corner of the oven frame. You will need to push and hold the door switch plunger in at all times. Program and start a "Clean" cycle and wait about one minute and then press "Cancel/Stop and wait to see if the door locking mechanism will operate and reach the unlocked position. Do not release the oven door light plunger until the door mechanism has reached the full unlocked position and has stopped moving. If this does not work then I highly suggest calling a service technician do diagnose and repair your range.

You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I assume that you have already unplugged the range and removed the original element. You should have been able to mount the new element in place. Your details seem to indicate that the plug connectors are your last obstacle to completing this repair. Since the old spade connectors on the ends of the wires going to the element do not fit the new one, you will need to cut off these connectors and replace them with larger ones that will fit the new element. Cut the old connectors off as close to the end of the wires as possible. You can find new spade connectors at your local hardware store or electrical supply. They are relatively inexpensive. You can strip the ends of the wires and crimp the new spade connectors onto the ends of the wires then connect them to the new element. This should fix you problem. If you need more help, reply with additional details and an updated model number. (Thanks for providing the model number in the subsequent reply but it appears to be slightly off.)

Hey Lyle, Thanks for the reply, but the problem is that the elements are different. The replacement burner is larger in diameter and the plugs are set up different. The plug size is ok I`m just not quite sure which wire goes where. I did call Sears and was told that this is the exceptable replacement. But no instructions were included! The model no. is 790.95738890 Thanks

Thanks for the updated model number. You indicate that the large element is the one that you are having problems with. I assume that you mean the large double element. That original burner was substituted to part number 316418400. That new burner appears to have an internal bridge between the thermal limiter and the lead on the element. I do not have an image of your original burner but I suspect that the original burner had a jumper wire between these connections that will not be needed on the new burner. If you are able to wire the new burner up properly using this information then this may resolve your problem. If you are not completely confident that you can wire the burner properly then you may need to have a service technician replace the burner. If you need more help, reply with additional details (photograph of the original burner with the wires connected would help). We will try to assist you further once we receive more information.
