This is a big old probably 1950's 40"+ wide electric range with a left and right oven four top burners and a large prep area....the left oven lower bake element failed.....do not try to remove the element....simply slide out oven chamber after removing the safety bracket at the top that keeps the chamber from falling out....probably designed like this for easy cleaning.......the bake element is bolted to the back wall bracket so there are nuts on the back side to remove along with and a contact ground strap......the replacement element has bayonet type connecteors while the original had bent flat metal contacts......I was able to adjust the tension on the stationery contacts in the oven so the beyonet made a good connection....no clue how to duplicate the contacts on the original element nor did I see a choice in my on line parts search......fingers crossed this will last.....great old electric range with spacious ovens
