This broil element is found on the roof of the oven and allows for an even heat when cooking food. The element may have shorted out and not be heating the oven, which might indicate it will need to be replaced. Before beginning the repair make sure your oven has been unplugged. Open the oven door and pull the old racks out. You will need to remove the screws holding the old broiler in place at the top of the stove. This is an OEM part that comes right from the manufacturer.
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:
First thing I tripped the range breaker. Pulled the range out from the wall and unpluged main plug. I then removed the 12 sheet metal screws from the back lower cover.I then unpluged the wires from the four element connections and marked the color on the range back.Two upper blue and red and two lower yellow and red. I then tested the resistance of the elements to confirm that they were bad. With volt/ ohm meter set for OHM'S I had no reading.When my new parts arrived I first made sure that they matched the origonals. I tested the OHM'S on the new parts and began the change.I removed the two upper element holding screws on the inside rear wall. I then removed the two hanging support screws from the inside top of the oven. For the oven element, simply remove the one screw at the back wall. Reassembly is reverse of removal.The element ends will stick out the back side of the range about one inch.Be sure that insulation is in place and that there is no contact between element ends and metal walls.Attatch the wires as you had them marked on the back. Replace the rear cover and tighten all the screws. Plug main plug back into socket. Reset breaker and slowley turn oven control up to a low temperature setting.After a few minuets the oven indicator light will go out.Open oven and check the temperature.End cap has three screws to remove. Slip off old cap and replace with new one. Snug the three screws. Push the range back in place.Have the wife back some cookies and enjoy.

The Job didn’t take very long at all. I pulled the unit out and unplug it before I started the repair. I had to remove the back two access cover plates to get to the two wire leads that connect the broiler. I don’t believe there was enough wire to be able to do it all from the front side. Next I disconnected the two wires that connected it while remembering what color goes to the correct side (just incase this does matter). After removing the wires I moved on to remove the element with a Philips screwdriver. The new part already had the hangers on it so I reused the old screws and installed the new element. Next I reconnected the wires in the back and re-installed the back panels. I plugged it up and it works as good as new now. This was definitely a lot cheaper to fix this myself than hire a repairman.
Top (broil) element broke in two on oven. Ordered part,it was there in three days. Quick fix, removed screw holding element to oven wall, unplugged wires, then just swaped out elements. Re-attached wires just as they were on old element and screwed back into same place and oven is working again.
The repair went real easy. Turned off power, unscrewed two screws at back of oven and disconnected the two wires. Reconnected two wires to new broiler element and remounted the new one with the two screws. Turned the breaker back on and had a steak cooking in no time.
After receiving the part I was able to quickly remove the old piece and replace with the new. For this project you have to remove the back of the oven to remove the electrical attachments.
Using a nut driver, remove the back panel of the oven. Remove the electrical connections from the elements.The Bake element has two Philips head screws at the back of the oven, the Broil element has one screw at the back of the oven and two on top of the oven near the front. Remove the screws. The element then falls out very easily. The new element has to be pushed gently through the insulation on the back of the oven, but this was not a problem.One issue: make sure that the Broil element is "right side up." The screw on the back of the unit is below the electrical connections.Replace the screws, reconnect the electrical connections, and test the oven. If everything works, replace the back panel.Total time from turning the first screw to the last was roughly 30 minutes.
Shut off power to the oven.Unscrewed the old broiler element, unplugged it.plugged in new one, screwed it in.Turned on the power. Voila!
I unscrewed the 3 screws that held the element in place. My husband disconnected the back wired part of element .Then he reconnected new element wires and I rescrewed 3 screws in of new element. Very simple. I just wasn't sure about the back wired part, but like I said my husband seemed to know what he was doing so I let him do that part!
Oven was missing the broiler element when I moved in so the connector/wires to plug the broiler were no longer visable in the main part of the oven (otherwise the repair would take 2 minutes). Moved oven away from wall and unplugged. Unscrewed sheet metal on the back of oven and found the broiler wires (the only two NOT connected to something). Fed the wires back into the oven and plugged in the broiler. Attached the broilers to the top hooks. Put sheet metal back on. Everything worked fine. I wouldn't say I know much about fixing things, but this was a very straight-forward job.
Removed screws holding rear cover, removed cover. Male connector on Broil Element had rusted off and caused wire to fall onto the frame of the range, shorting it out. Removed element by disconnecting other wire and removing the single Phillips head screw accessible from inside the oven. Released the element from the two hooks towards the front of the oven near the door and removed. The wire to the element that burned off had a high temperature female push on connector that I did not have on hand. I had a high temp ring connector so I drilled one of the male connectors on the new element so I could use a small stainless screw and nut which I had to hold the ring terminal on. After crimping the new connector on I fastened it to the element, connected the other wire and put the rear cover back. Good to go now!
The Parts Select folks talked me through the procedure, starting with turning off the electricity to the stove. I'm glad they mentioned that, as I had to connect the element and would be touching the wires to do so. The only glitch I ran into was that the screws that attached the element to the oven were quite rusted, so it took a few more minutes to wrest them loose. I was very surprised at how easy this was, and am happy that the Parts Select staff knew how to instruct me. Many Thanks!!
