Hello All,

I'm trying to replace the lower baking element. When the screws are removed on each side and sliding the element out there is no visible connection to the wires. It slides out only about 1" and I don't wish to force it.

I'm unable to find a repair manual. So, will the unit have to be removed and accessed from the rear to make the connections?

Thanks in advance for ay help,

BillB

You have to make the connections for this element from behind the oven. Which means the oven needs to come out. You lucky Thermadore owner, you!

You should write a letter to Thermadore and castigate their moron engineers for designing their oven this way. :birdeye:

FYI, Viking, another over-hyped brand, does it the same way.

 "connections are from the front, hopefully the wires come thu...It does not mean the wires will pull thu like they are supposed to...but have the equipment to remove it if needed."......this is in reply from a master tech on a tech forum , I asked him because he works on them.....however if you cannot get the wires to pull from the front  the unit will have to be removed with the "all dolly"  this will require you to call a service company that has the equpment to remove this oven and reinstall.

Pegi,

After removing the mounting screws I was able to slide the element out about 1" and no further.

Is it possible the wires just plug into the ends? I was afraid to pull too hard!

Could it be that simple? If so, I'll order an element and go for it.

Thank you again,

BillB

Like Roy said, it SHOULD- be replaceable from the front, but if it will not pull forward enough from the front to bring the wires with it the unit will have to be removed to access the connections from the back and will probably need a special oven dolly to pull this oven and reinstall it after it is repaired.  This will require special equipment unless you are real strong or have some buddies to help do this without anyone getting hurt!!  THE BREAKERS TO THE OVEN WILL HAVE TO BE TURNED OFF EITHER WAY...Not all of them will allow you to pull the element with the wires attached from the front, according to Roy.  I do not know since we do not work on this brand...
