Friggidaire dryer heating element terminal

5 posts in this topic

I managed to break off the female spade connector on one of the line side wires for the heating element.  Larger than 1/4"....looks like maybe 5/16". Can anyone verify the size and tell me where to find the little buggers?

Thank you, RegUS_PatOff. No luck at local hardware stores, local auto supply houses, big box hardware stores, Radio Shack. Looks like Grainger has a pack of 500 for a few hundred bucks, I only need one(or a small handful for the box).

It is a 5/16".  I have plenty of 1/4" on hand...this one is larger.
