Easy oven repair: replacing the bake element in an electric oven

If you have an electric oven and it’s not heating up like it should (or at all) then you might have a faulty bake element. Sometimes, the bake element is visibly damaged or even falls apart altogether, so it’s easy to tell that you need a new electric oven bake element replacement part.

Replacing the bake element in an electric oven is an affordable and super easy fix. First, find the correct part for your stove by locating your appliance’s model number. Usually, it’s on a sticker inside your stove’s lower storage drawer, but not IN the drawer, but on the appliance. Here are some other places to look: http://www.everyappliancepart.com/help_finding_model_number.php

Once you have that, copy down the model number and enter it into the search box on EveryAppliancePart.com to find the right part for your appliance.

Once you have your part, unplug your appliance or shut off the power to the appliance before you make your repair.

  1. Disconnect and remove your old bake element by removing the screws that hold the element in place to the inside back wall of your oven.
  2. Gently pull the old broken element forward. You will see that there are wires running to the element which provides the electricity in order to heat the element. You may need a pair of needle nose pliers to remove these wire leads. VERY IMPORTANT – don’t let these wires disappear through the holes into the body of your oven. If you do, you will need to remove the wall oven in order to get them back, which is a lot of work.
  3. Attach the wires to your new bake element (these usually slide in) and then push the new bake element into place.  Replace the screws and you are done.
  4. Connect the power back to your electric range and turn your oven on to see if it works.

Sweet Creamy Goodness

Just the other day as I was skimming through Pinterest,  which has become my new addiction, and I noticed this recipe for cream cheese, cinnamon sugar and crescent roll bites.  I followed the link and lo and behold, the easiest dessert recipe I’ve ever encountered.  I tried these out two days ago, and my family pretty much inhaled these, they were so good!

If you’re a fan of pastries and have a bit of a sweet tooth, these are for you.  You can serve these as breakfast, a snack or dessert. It’s really a very versatile food.

Ingredients:

-2 cans pillsbury butter crescent rolls (buy the seamless version if you can find them!)

-2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (softened)

-1 cup sugar

-1 teaspoon vanilla

-1/4 cup butter (melted)

-Cinnamon and sugar (I used about 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tbs cinnamon) 

Instructions: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If you are using a glass pan, adjust the temperature to 325 degrees. Unroll and spread one can of crescent rolls on bottom of ungreased 9×13 inch pan.  If you aren’t using the seamless crescents, be sure to smooth out the seams before adding the filling. Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl. Spread mixture over crescent rolls. Unroll and spread remaining crescent rolls over mixture, being sure to press together any seams. Spread melted butter over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake for 20-30 minutes.

These bad boys turned out heavenly. I will definitely be making these again!

Rainy Days Call for Soup and Movies!

     Hello to all my readers out there! Sorry there was no post on Wednesday, I got so busy at work I forgot to post. 😦 But no worries I am back for recipe Friday and you will not be disappointed.  I am happy to say that there has not been snow here in a week, Woo-hoo! There have however been buckets of rain every single day.  That is okay with me because as the poem goes “April showers bring May flowers!” And who doesn’t love flowers? When it rains outside and it is gloomy all I want to do is cuddle up on the couch with a warm blanket, and a bowl of hearty soup.  My favorite soup is baked potato soup; it is defiantly my comfort food for a rainy day.   So on these rainy dreary days why not try my recipe for baked potato soup!?

 

What you will need:

  • 6 Cups of Chicken Broth 
  • 6 Cups of red potatoes, Cubed ( you may peel them if you like, I prefer to keep the skin on)
  • ½ tsp. Seasoning Salt
  • ¼ tsp. White Pepper
  • ¼ tsp. Ground Red Pepper
  • 1 tbsp. Minced garlic
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, cut into chunks
  • 6-7 Slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese (optional for topping)
  • Scallions (optional for topping)

Directions:

  1. Combine chicken broth, potatoes, garlic, peppers, and salt into a large soup pot.
  2. Boil on a medium heat until the potatoes are tender enough to pierce with a fork.
  3. To make the soup thicker you will now need to mash up some of the potatoes to release the starch for a thickening agent.
  4. Add the cup of sour cream and cream cheese
  5. Make sure you reduce to a LOW HEAT
  6. You will now need to stir this very frequently until the cream cheese is fully melted, and the sour cream is stirred in well.
  7. Add the slices of bacon after everything is stirred in. Be sure to leave some slices for garnish.
  8. Serve soup into bowl and top with shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, and scallions.
  9. Enjoy!

 

     Now that you have your soup, pick out your favorite movie and cuddle up on the couch to enjoy your rainy day!  If you need any parts for your stove to make this soup be sure to check out everyappliancepart.com to find just want you need!
