Bake Element

PartSelect Number PS249247

At the floor of your electric oven is the bake element. This partially open-style element comes with push-on terminals. The bake element will likely provide most of the heat for baking. Therefore, if the oven is not heating properly, or if food is burnt on top and undercooked below, your bake element may be at fault. If you can see that the element has been separated or blistered, you should replace the part immediately. 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, use a multi-meter to test for electrical continuity to see if the element needs replacing.

This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & KENMORE®.

This part fixes the following symptoms:

  • Little to no heat when baking.
  • Element will not heat.
  • Oven not heating evenly.
  • Oven is too hot.
  • Will Not Start.
  • Little to no heat when broiling.

Bake element went out..flamed out pretty big light show when it happened

The job went over without a hitch, only probably didn't get the correct part first go around, but after getting the right part everything went very easy..Just a couple of screws where the elment goes in and 2 wires to plug back into the new element, after that everything was good to go!!

Oven heating element burned out

First turned off the power to the stove at the breaker panel, thenI removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. Disconnecting/reconnecting the "clips" was the only difficult part because they did not slip off/on easily. Replaced the element in the oven, replaced the screws...good to go!

Best part of buying from Parts Select was that they shipped the part the same day I ordered it, which was the Friday after Christmas. Competitor would not have shipped till the following Monday and we needed the oven ASAP!

The old heating erlement basically melted and broke in two places

I unscrewed the two screws inside the oven, then i pulled the oven away from the wall and unscrewed the protective shield, and undid the wiring. Then i removed the element. Once the new one arrived, i pretty much just did the same thing in reverse. vwa-lah... fixed!

The bake element was burnt out.

It took a nutdriver to remove two nuts. The defective element was removed and the replacement installed. It works great!

Heating element was not working in an old (50+ years old)ge electric oven

Replacement of the heating element only takes a few minutes...First, turn off the breaker/fuse to the stove, then just remove two screws , pull out the two connected wires to expose the connections, hook them up, and replace the screws to the cover plate. The connection/cover plate can be hinged or not hinged. Make sure you order the correct one. We ordered the wrong one at first, but were assisted by the returns dept. and received the correct one in 2 days. Great customer service, thanks partsselect.com!!
