This oven broil element has push-on terminals.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches, but I had not turned off the power.So, I shorted out one of the wires. Then I turned off the power but was afraid to go any farther.An appliance repairman was at my house that day fixing my dryer seal. He was able to pull the wires through the insulation successfully and install the broiler element. He did not charge me any extra for this little extra job. But I learned my lesson. Cut the power before you begin! He told me that I could have wound up with a much bigger repair if the short had been in the wire that is connected to the control panel of the oven. I was very lucky!

FIRST MAKE SURE THE OVEN IS OFF!!!! I chose to shut it off at the breaker panel. Remove the two screws that attaches the broiler element to the oven. Gently pull it out. Unplug the two cable wires that are attached. Replace it and install the same way.
If I'd had the Nut driver, it would have taken 15 -20 minutes or less. Went to Ace Hardware, bought the nut driver for $4.99.Turn off the power at the box! Turn off the oven as well. Four screws total. Two to hold it in place and two that connect the element to the source. First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I pulled the element out about 2 inches. Two more screws connect the element wires. I disconnected the element, threw it away, then connected the new element. I put the element in place, then replaced the screws that connect the power. Finally, I replaced the screws that hold the element in place.Kimberly, El Cerrito, California
Removed the oven racks, removed screws holding element hanging support from roof of oven, removed screws holding plate of element to rear of oven. CAREFULLY worked element loose from back of oven and gently alternated pulling each side of element (near the base) until connecting wires came free of insulating batting. Pull too hard and the connecting wires can break loose and disappear behind the batting. Once freed, disconnected both wires with socket (use pliers for extra grip on flat part of connectors, if necessary), removed element, braced new element on bottom of oven, aligning connectors to now-free wires. Re-attached with the new screws that came with the element (attachment points on element are threaded; do not reuse old screws as the threads may not match), gently re-inserted element into insulating batting at rear of oven, reattached hanging support, then replaced element plate screws.Can be difficult to work in small, deep ovens....many oven doors can be removed. If so, remove oven door and use a chair as a support...lie on your back on the chair and hang your head and arms in the oven.
The two dollar socket set from Xmas 20 years ago had the right size socket..Long arms are advisable.The lower element still plugged in while the upper wires were just hanging there surrounded with fluffy white insulation fuzz, I wondered, " Could I bake a potato for my yearning and hungry family?"When I explained the situation to my retired father in Arizona he said simply, "I wouldn't."The new element popped in. It got really red, and, kinda like watching my toaster toast, the show was pretty much over after it heated up.Shalom and Merry Christmas Folks!
took old unit and measured it part select made it easy for me ordered new unit and installed easily and quick thanks to quick service and shipping
It's so simple most people could mannage the repair. Turn oven off. Remove oven door and shelves. Use a nut driver to remove mounting screws. Pliers to pull quick connect terminated wires off element terminals. Use pliers to push connectors onto new element,wires may connect to either terminal. Nut driver for screws to mechanically mount new element. Replace shelves and door. First time element gets hot it will burn off oils and dirt, not a problem but do it now not later.
 squirted LiquidWrench on the 4 screws holding the convection fanblade rear cover in place. Used a socket and rachet to remove screws; the loosener really helped after 10+ years. the broken heating element was easy to remove. The two spade connectors however didn't have much free length;these wires wanted to retreat back into the rear oven wall.  So i put a small binder clip from my desk supplies on each spade end, this left the connectors where I could grab them. I used needle-nose pliers to firmly crimp the the spade connectors onto the new heating element; couldn't have made a firm placement with fingertip pressure alone.  I cleaned the oven door hinge area, oven bulb area, and other hard to reach spots with Simple Green and wipes.
As with all of my orders from Part Select the part was as correct and arrived in a timely manner. The installation was easy. Remove two screws, unplug the old element from the wires, install wires on new element and reinstall the element. Restored power and everything worked fine.Thanks,Ken Fuelleman
switched off power to oven, unscrewed old broiling unit and installed new one.
First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. Replaced the defective element with the new - all inless than fifteen minutes!
First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out disconnected the two wires. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THERE IS HARDLY ANY WIRE TO WORK WITH. Otherwise I would have been finished in ten minutes.
I had to remove two screws that held these elements in place from back of oven; pull the elements out about three inches to disconnect two wires; connected wires to new elements andreplaced two screws. A very easy job to perform thanks to right parts from PartSelect.
Shut off power! Removed oven racks, squeezed into the oven and removed screws securing the broiler element. Uplugged terminals from old element. Plugged terminals on new element and mounted it to the back of the oven. Surface elements are quick-disconnect replacement type. Just tilted up, pulled out and replaced with new one. One of them had welded into the receptical, requireing me to dismount the receptical and unscrew the wires. Best part identifier system I've ever seen -- wish car parts places would use this technique!
- removed the old element- looked for part number, was none- could not find direct replacement listed- compared to dimensions on drawing- ordered part- discovered that the mounting plate on new element was too small, holes did not line up, did not cover opening in back of oven.- sawed off mounting plate on new element- removed mounting plate from old element-drilled out holes on old mounting plate to accept new element- attached the modified element- Everything works fine.
