This broil element is found on the roof of the oven.
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:
This particular model has a bracket that holds the element close to the oven ceiling, so I had to unscrew that as well as the element mounting screws on the back oven wall. The hardest part (not that hard) was the connectors were really tightly clamped to the element terminal. I had to use pliers to help wiggle them off the tips. Recommend doing this very gently yet firmly - I was worried about ruining the connectors or the wires to the oven. The element was deader than dead and actually fell apart in three places once it was detached. The new replacement element arrived a couple days later. Putting it in was a breeze, although the oven is quite dark and I needed Mrs. Handyman to hold a flashlight so I could get the screws in. Oven works fine now.

1. Turned off the power supply first! 2. Unscrewed the element brackets at the back of the oven.3. Unscrewed the bracket holding it to the top of the oven.4. Pulled off the crimp-on leads from the ends.5. Because you have to stick both arms all the way into the oven to manipulate the leads, I found it easier to move the oven away from the wall and unscrew the back panel. I could then push the ends of the broiler element through the back and make all the connections from back there. Then I pushed the new element back into the oven and reattached all the screws in reverse order.
Removed screws, pulled out element, disconnected wires, connected new element and screwed it in. 5 minutes tops. Best part is I ordered the part on Tuesday afternoon and it arrived Weds.... great company, Thanks!!
Repair would have only taken minutes, but upper support plate screws were rusted and almost fused to the plate. Once the plate screws were out (had to pry plate out) installation was done in 3-5 minutes.As for the replacement part, worked perfect on the first try. Very happy with price, speed of delivery and preformance.
Make sure you unplug your stove before you start! You should probably shut off the power at the breaker box too.Since the upper oven is so small, I found that I couldn't reach the connectors well enough to work with them. So I pulled out the whole oven, took the screws off the back cover and from the back I was able to easily reach where the wires connected to the element. Then it was a piece of cake. Just use a small knife to unbend the little metal things that hold on to the metal ends of the element. Slide them on to the new element, and crimp them tight with pliers.Oh, you also have to take off the bracket on the ceiling of the inside of the oven to get the old element out, and the new one in. The oven has been working great!
I unplugged the oven then, one element at a time, I removed the screws and pulled the connecter out of the sleeve. This was the hardest part as it is a tight fit. Then, reverse the order to replace the element. The upper elements were more work because of the brackets used to hold them in place. But this only took alittle more time to remove and replace each one. When I plugged the oven back in and turned it on everything worked great! Back to baking!
Ordered the part from your company. It arrived promptly. Gave to to my two sons 22 & 29. They fixed it.Very easy........................................
Easier than making a pie! Unscrewed 4 screws and detached the element from the back of the small upper oven. Connected the new element and put the 4 screws back in place. We saved $129 service fee by doing this ourselves not to mention the markup on parts. Shipping was very quick! While I hope to not have to do this again...I would do it again in a split second!
replacing this was very easy and simple. I removed the 2 screws holding the support bracket then the 2 screws in back of the elemant ,pull clips off the element then installed it back like it was .....very simple...
I took the old one out and put the new one in. Even a woman could do it.
Our Maytag electric range has a small oven on top that doubles as a toaster, and food warmer. The lower one is a big oven suitable for Thanksgiving Turkey Etc. It is also a broiler as is the top oven. The top one had the bottom element burn out about 5 months back as well. Now the bottom element on the lower oven had burned out as well. The oven has some age on it, but when I looked to replace it I saw it would be approx $1800.00 - $2000.00 for a new one. I knew the elements were replacable and thought if I should call out the lonely guy, the Maytag repairman. Nope, I pulled the stove out disconnected the 220 power supply. I got the Model number off the back stamped info plate. I looked up Maytags parts on Google and the first one was PartSelect.com. They have easy fill-in spaces for Model and Make and a schematic of the oven and all it's pieces are visually displayed. I found the part I needed and ordered. It arrived in two days, very reasonable, very fast shipping. Pulling out the old elements required only a battery operated screw driver, a flash light, and a magnetic dish to keep track of the screws.The removal of the rear panel takes about 10 sheet metal screws. I marked the leads I disconnected by color with a felt tip pen on the back. I disconnected and removed the aforementioned clips, cleaned inside the oven and placed the new element in, reconnected everything on the back as it had been according to my color assignments, replaced the back with battery operated screwdriver from the magnetic dish, reconnected the 220V power supply. Done, in about 30 minutes; I saved a bunch over a new Stove and at least a couple hundred over a service call. Easy and satisfying.
