If you notice that your oven is not heating properly, you may need to replace your bake element. This bake element is a fully open, fixed style and is used for electric ranges and ovens. Carrying 240 volts and 2800 watts, it is 15-1/4 inches wide and 15-1/2 inches long. The depth of the terminals is 2-1/2 inches, making the total element length 18 inches. The bake element connects to the back of the fridge, so you will need to remove your oven racks prior to completing this repair. Be sure to unplug the oven from the power source before beginning this repair.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
After ordering the element, found out it was the wrong element, I needed an 18.5 inch x 15.5 instead of the 15 1/4 x 15 1/2"...I slowly bent the element in shape to fit my oven. It works beautiful.But for you guys, order the right one. Don't forget to measure your old elements spread from connection to connection. Install the new element and then test to be sure it works proper.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. Then I pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. Reconnected the new wires, put the screws back in and the oven WORKED!!
The cost of new ovens and a having an electrician come out to fix was ridiculous.We looked online fro an alternative and found your part w/ picture (which helped) for only 41.00 w/ tax to fix! We recieved item within 4 days and we fixed it in about 15 min. Thank you so much for saving us tons of money and loads of headache!
Our oven is a wall mounted oven so I could not reach the plugin. Therefore I shut the power off at our breaker box. I then removed the screws that held the old heating element to the oven. Removed the element, slipped connecting wires off of the old element. Next I slipped the connector wires onto the new element and replaced the screws. Turned the power back and and checked to see if oven worked. It did! As you can tell I am a novice at home repair but this worked perfectly!
It was very easy,it took five minutes to replace it. I disconnected the two leeds from old burner and connected them to the new one.
On the Saturday before Christmas, during some baking, my heating element we out of my oven! Since I was cooking Christmas dinner at my house on Thursday, I freaked out. Fortunately, we got on the interenet, ordered a new element, paid for 2-3 day shipping, and received it on Wed. afternoon. My husband unscrewed the old element, and put the new one in about 5 minutes. Very easy job, and Christmas was a total success!
I just had to take 4 screws out and pull it out and put the new one back in!!
Check the connectors first and the associated wiring, as our stove had been stricken by lightning a couple of years ago. Seems the stove was fairly new we had a service tech replace the stove top relays to correct the shorted out stove top. Unfortunately no one checked the rest of the stove as the oven elements still functioned. What I realized when the bake element failed was the lead wire to the bake element was actually shorted from the lightning to the stove and the element was damaged but still worked. The lead wire was trimmed back and the connector replaced along with the element. The lightning had damaged the unit and luckily we don't bake much as it actually had soldered the connector to the back of the stove. Lesson learned...if your appliance it struck by lightning remove the back and check to assure your stove will operate safely. Thanks for the prompt shipping as everything is good as new now and we are much safer too.
First I removed the two screws that held the element in place. Then after slightly pulling out the wires, I disconnected the two wires on each side. The new part just snapped into the old wires. I pushed the element back into place, replaced the original two screws to hold it into place, and it was all done! Two screws and two wires...done. It took about 2 minutes and this is something I have NEVER done before. The oven works beautifully now!
The key was finding the right socket and using my 1/4 inch socet set and rachet. Remove your nuts, pull out disconnect wires, remove old element and put new one in place. One tip is turn on stove light to be able to see well while in oven.
I was astounded, I ordered the part on Thursday afternoon and FedEx delivered it on Saturday afternoon. Great overall service.
Turned off the breaker. Unscrewed the two srews holding the element in the back of the oven. Pulled out old element. removed the clips from the old element, placed them on the new one. Pushed the element into place. replaced the screws. Turned on the breaker. Total time about 5-6 minutes. Wish all reapirs were this simple and easy.
To diagnose the problem I felt of the element a few moments after turning the oven on. It was cold. (rocket science, I know). I ordered the element replacement, which arrived less than 24 hours later. I turned off the power to the oven, unscrewed the old element and pulled. The wires are attached to the element in a way that reminds me of plugging in a USB port. Plugged, screwed back in, powered up and made some banana bread.
