I believe I need to replace the heating element in my oven.

I believe I need to replace the heating element in my oven. There were some sparks and now it heats but does not get hot . . . not sure who to call for repair. Are they expensive to replace? It is a Westinghouse oven - was in the house when we bought it 10 yrs ago.

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

I cannot find the owners manual.


I found a # XXXXX the back but it did not say "model" number. Is there somewhere to look on the oven itself?

Is this a freestanding oven for a wall oven? If it's freestanding and there is a drawer in the bottom open that drawer and should be a tag with the model number on it. Let me know, thanks, Bryan

Found it in the part you lift up by the burners, hadn't thought of looking there.

Model # XXXXX

Serial # XXXXX

ok great, this is your element. you can order this @ and when you click the blue link above there is a video on how to replace this, you can do this yourself its not hard, always unplug the range before replacing these, doing this yourself will save you a service call. the part is $29.85. thanks and well wishes, Bryan
