This part is 2600 Watts and 240 Volts. It is a closed hinged style bake element which is 15-3/4 inches long and 16-5/8 inches wide. The terminal depth is three inches and they are 1-3/4 inches apart. This part is made of metal and is black in color. Be sure to disconnect power to the oven before completing this repair.

It was easier than I thought. Unscrewed the unit from the back of the oven. I released the unit from the back and removed the wires, pulled out the element. Connected the wires to the new element. Put the two  screws back in place and closed the door and turned on the oven and "poof" my oven was back in operation. Cheaper than purchasing a new stove.

This was the easiest thing we've ever repaired. I read the online comments fromothers who had replaced the bake element and decided to give it a try. Ordered the part from PartSelect and received it within 24 hours. Flipped the circuit breaker to the oven and tested to see if the power was indeed off.Used a phillips head screwdriver to remove the two screws holding the element to the back wall of the oven; pulled the element out about three inches and disconnected the bladeconnectors. Thought it would be difficult since the oven is 23 years old--not a problem,they came right off. Connected the new element to the wires, pushed the wires back intoto oven wall and put the two screws back into place. Finished in less than ten minutes.I had called our local appliance store where I bought the oven and asked what the repaircosts would be. We saved $178 by doing it ourselves.
I shut off the power to the stove, removed the 2 screws holding the bake element, detached the 2 wires, reconnected the wires to the new bake element, pushed it back in and replaced the screws. It works perfectly. In addition, I ordered this on Wed., and it arrived on Thur.
Shut off the breaker. Removed the shelves. Removed two screws fastening element. Removed two wires from the spade temrinals on the element. Reverse procedure with new element making sure spade connectors fit snuggly onto the terminals of the new element.
First I removed the two screws holding old element in place. I pulled out old element, pulled the wire connectors from old element and reconnected to new element. I pushed the element back into place and redid the two screws. Simple!
easy to find the parts, and easy to install...pretty good instructions on the surface block...if you can take it apart, you can get it back together..thanks
Pulled out the stove and unplugged. Removed the back of the oven and removed the element connections. Removed the two screws holding the element in place and installed the new one.Removed the remaining parts of the old clips and installed the new ones. Very easy
