Lower Bake Element

PartSelect Number PS11744518

At the floor of the oven is the bake element. If your oven is electric, the bake element will likely provide 90 percent of the heat for baking. Therefore, the oven will not heat properly if the baking element is faulty. If you can see that the element has been damaged, separated, or blistered, you will need to replace the part. If there is no visible damage, turn the oven on and check to see if the element heats evenly. If the element is not heating evenly, or if it is not heating at all, it will need to be replaced. This element is 19 inches wide x 20 inches long (including 5-inch-long terminals).

This part works with the following brands: Maytag, Kenmore, Jenn-Air, Whirlpool.

  • Little to no heat when baking.

Burned out lower bake element

Watched a utube video on replacing element on my model range. Found my Phillips screwdriver. An electric drill would have been a bonus but not necessary. Pulled out range, pulled out plug, removed 1 screw from the lower back cover, disconnected the 2 wires, went to the front and removed oven door and racks, unscrewed 2 screws holding the element. Put new element in and reverse dprocess. Test oven. It worked!!

No heat from bottom element

First I disconnected the power! unscrewed the two screws holding element in place disconnected the wire clips from ends of element (be sure to hold them so they don't "retract" into the body of the oven) Connect the wire clips onto the new element and replace into original location and replace the screws. Turn power back on and start cooking again!

Lower burner element wasn't working

watched how to video so was prepared for a standard install. removed screws and coverplate...disconnected wires...threaded new element thru coverplate...reconnected wires...reinstalled coverplate with screws. disconnecting and reconnecting wires took some thought and patience, but wasn't rocket science.

Burned out bottom element

IMPORTANT NOTE: This element is shaped like a B. The straight line part of the B, which is closest to the back part of the oven, doesn't light up. At first I thought it was a defective part. My husband is the cook and I never realized this. This fact isn't indicated in the instruction booklet which came with the oven. My sister has the same oven and she didn't realize it doesn't light up either. I looked up installation instructions on You Tube and although I was very nervous, it was easy to install. It's a little awkward because the wires are in the back of the oven so have a flashlight handy.

The lower baking element metal broke so the oven would not heat.

Hiring a repair man was going to be expensive, and I saw the part was cheap and others had said this was an easy job to do. I figured I'd give it a shot even though I have very little experience repairing things and there was no help coming from my husband. I followed the instruction of others, unscrewing two screws and pulling the broken element out. The metal that capped the ends of the broken piece needed to be removed. One came off easily. The other took a bit of wiggling to get off. A mistake I made was, by accident, one of the wires coming from behind the stove got pushed back through the hole in the oven wall.. I needed to fish it out with tweezers, but thankfully, that was easily retrieved. Once I put the caps on the new piece, I had some trouble reaching the plate to screw it back into place. I removed the oven door, which helped a lot, but then found it a little tricky to get the oven door back on. Despite the little set backs, I still did it myself in around 15 minutes. I'm delighted to have my oven back without paying a fortune!

Lower oven lower electric element

It's a straightforward remove and replace with two screws. The lower element is most likely to go with years of baking when bake pans overflow on to the element, It can be checked with an electrical probe for resistance and continuity. If the oven is preheating and the lower element doesn't heat that is definitive. We had it checked under the extended warranty but the tech wasn't thorough enough. The extended warranty is of questional value.

Lower bake heating element burned out.

I removed the two screws retaining the heating element with a phillips head screw driver. Then I pulled the element forward to expose the wire connectors, and disconnected the two wires. I connected the two wires to the new heating element, and secured the new heating element with the two screws.
