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.

This part works with the following products: Range, Wall Oven.

  • Little to no heat when baking.
  • Element will not heat.

Lower element burnt out.

This was really easy. I took out the lower oven racks. Most important - Turned off the breaker to the stove. Unscrewed the element and popped it out. Put in the new one and screwed it back in. Turned on the breaker and I was ready to go.

Lower oven burner caught fire and burned out.

Took 5 minutes... I did it in my pajamas... after a heavy duty margarita!

Here's a tip: start from behind.

Bake element on lower oven stopped working

Took out two screws and carefully pulled out the element and removed the wires that were attached by clips. Put the clips on the new element and carefully pushed it back into place. Put the screws back and TA! DA! I was baking again.
Thank-you.

Lower bake element burned out

thank you everyone here for your posts which gave me the confidence to try this myself. Could not have been easier and I have zero DIY talents. Just as other have described, unplug oven, unscrew plate holding element, slip wires off of old and onto new and reattach. Perfect!

Lower oven heating element burned through because of corn muffin mix falling on element

Turned off oven power. Using a Phillips head screw driver I removed the two screws holding the lower element in place from inside the oven. Slowly pulled the element toward me. Met with some resistance because of the oven insullation. The end of the element has two sliding clips that you pull off. Remove the clips, remove the old element and replace with the new one then reverse the procedure.

Lower element burned out

This element went out way to soon for a Maytag. As we are 75 miles from the nearest repair shop it was not cost effective to pay for a service call and the charge to repair. So even though the part was supposed to be under warranty we decided it would be better to order and my husband put in the part. Part is in with ease and my oven is back working.

The element on lower oven split

First we turned off the circuit breaker. Then we removed the oven door. Unscrewed the plate of the broken element and removed from the electric plugs.
We attached the new element to the electric plugs, screwed the plate into the oven. Turned on the circuit and I was back to baking Christmas cookies.
It was as easy as everyone else said it would be. It took about 5 min.

Lower bake element broke apart

Removed the two screws that held the broken element in place, pulled the element out and disconnected the two wires. Placed the connections on the new element and pushed it back in place and screwed it down. Turned it on and baked a cake. This was very easy. I am a 51 y/o woman and did this myself.
