Push on connector - range element


I need to replace a damaged non insulated 16awg push on female connector that is for a range element. Is it necessary to only use non insulated high temp replacements?

You should use the exact part called for and not a substitute. This is a pretty demanding application of a connector so you want to be sure to use something that meets the intent of the designers. I'd go to an appliance parts store with the model number and make of range and get the right part. This is not a good thing to "MacGyver".

While I agree with you on that point you should see the genius design that shorted the connector in the first place. Nothing like a 1/2 clearance between connectors and sharp metal and a piece of insulation shoved in to protect them.
