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: Kenmore, General Electric, Hotpoint.

This part works with the following products: Range, Microwave Oven Combo.

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.

Oven element was fractured in 5 places

the only challenging thing realizing that the screws in the back weren't for a screw driver, they were for a very small wrench. Since I didn't have such a tool, I just used vice grips. It all went well though. The oven currently heats to 400 degrees in 7.5 min. I am quite happy.

Element broke

First I switched the fuse to the oven had no power and then I removed the old element and wiped down the inside with a damp towel.
I then attached the new element and then used the screws to attach the element firmly into place.
I then restored power by switching the fuse back and then burned the element to remove and chemicals and then done

Bottom element cracked/split - open circuit

Removed oven shelves (30 seconds). Removed 2 screws holding broken element to oven (2 minutes). Pulled broken element assembly out & removed 2 wires attached to element (1 minute). Connected wires to new element (just push them into place) and mounted new element with the 2 screws (1 1/2 minutes). Turned on oven element to test & since I was so tired from all of this 5-minute activity, I rested.

The old oven element burned in two.

After removing the screws holding the element in I disconnected the wires and attached alligator clips to the wires to keep them from pulling back inside the holes. I would have had to pull the stove out and removed some covers if they disappeared through the holes. After getting the part number off of the old element, I ordered a new element from Partselect.com and received the new one in less the a week. Reinstalling the new element took about 5 minutes.

Oven would not heat up

Took out the hexagon screws, used pliers to pull the connecting ends apart, slid in the new element in to the connecting slots, reattached to screws, turned on the oven to see if it would heat up and it did. It was really easy. I had waited for a week to get the part from my local Sears parts house. You sent it out and I had it in 3 days. They still don't have the part. Thanks so much.

Oven wouldn't heat

I read the "easy to repair" story after I ordered my part and I felt like I coud do this on my own. (Female not much experience in repairs) I shut off circuit breaker...proceeded to take out element...could not get it to easiler come off...so I made the mistake of cutting the wire because it looked like that's what I needed to do. WORD TO THE WISE...there are clamps that actually pull off the element..just need to pull a little. So my "easy" project was made more difficult because I didn't know this up front. Otherwise it would have been a breeze. I had to go to the hardware store and but new clamps and attach to the cut wire. Good news is my oven is now working and Parts.com was fast, cheaper than the GE parts place and great service.

Half of the bake element had burned out and oven would not stop heating.

After removing the racks from the oven and reading the instructions, I looked at the connections and confirmed they were the same. i got the nutdriver, carefully unscrewed the plates that connected to the back of the oven and carefully pulled the wires out. I pulled the connectors of the old element out of the wires. Plugged the new bake element connectors into the wires, moved the wires back into the space behind the oven, screwed on the plates to keep the element in place, and tested the oven. Worked great!!!!! Saved a lot of money.

Oven bake element sparked & on fire.

First turned off the power going to the oven. Then removed the two screws that hold the element in place. When we pulled the element out of the back of the oven, we used 2 clothes pins to make sure the wire wouldn't retrack into the back of the oven wall. Then removed the element, put in the new element, attached the two wires and inserted into the holes. Last tightened the screws to the oven wall through the back plate. It was so easy! When we removed the old element, it broke in two pieces! I placed my order one afternoon, and the next day the order was there at my doorstep delivered by the FedEx man. Terrific service! I have recommended PartSelect.com to everyone I know! Thank you.

The bottom stove element broke in several places

I just followed the directions in the video. Did exactly what it said to do and had no problems whatsoever. In fact, repairing this element made the timer start beeping again and actually made the oven cook better.
