This bake element is found on the bottom of the oven.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
We removed the two very tiny screws that held the plate through which the element was connected to the wiring. It was extremely difficult to do so, because the screws were so tiny. Our socket set did not have such a small attachment, and we had to use an adjustable wrench. Once we accomplished that, we unhooked the old broil element from the wires. At that point, the wires snapped back into the wall. There was almost no slack to pull the wires back out into the oven so that we could hook the new broil element up. It took more than an hour of maneuvering before we were able to get hold of enough of the wires so that we could grab onto each one and hook up the new broil element. One we did that, it was easy to place the broil element back into its brackets.

The bake element basically just plugs in remove the two screws in the back with a nut driver pull the element out unplug the spade connectors and reconnect the new element . As far as the clips just snap them on to the top element and snap back in the holes at the top of the oven. Also very fast delivery less then 48 hours from ordering to delivery
Turned off the power at the panel and then simply removed the two hext screws and unplugged the old element. Plugged in the new element and used a nut driver to relpace the two screws.
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.
I turned off the electricity to the oven.and removed the door. I removed the 2 screws with a nut driver holding the element in place, pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires with pliers , clamped the 2 wires together to keep them from falling in the back of liner. When the new element was received the procedure was reversed. Electricity was restored and the oven works perfectly.
removed two screws holding the element in place, pulled old element out enough to remove wires that are attached with flag terminals. Installation was in reverse. Turned the oven on and cooked some biscuits. The element that I received from PartSelect was a perfect match.
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, connected new one, put back in place with screws
I should note that my first order to PartsSelect.comwas made on-line and that I selected the wrong part by comparing the burned-out element to the web site picture. When I received that part, I phoned and quickly corrected my mistake, ordered the correct part and obtained return instructions.With the correct part in hand, I removed the two screws holding the element in place, pulled the element out a short distance to disconnect the two wires and removed the burned-out element. Reversing this procedure I installed the new bake element and completed the job by checking out the oven heating. The hardest part of all this was reaching over the oven door and stretching to unscrew and screw the necessary screws.
My husband (a retired tool & die maker) easily removed the old bake element after first turning off the circuit. He cleaned up the burned salt that we had used to try to put the "fire" out but finally just shut down the circuit. Then just as easily istalled the new element. Thanks to your quick service, we were only without the use of the oven for a day and a half!
Needed to drill two new holes for fastening the element to the oven wall. Change in design. Enlarged the holes in the spade connections since I was unable to find smaller bolts than 4-40. I would suggest to make the holes in the spade connections larger.The change out was not a problem.
I shut off the power at the circuit breaker. I loosened the screws securing the baking element to the back wall. I then pulled out the baking element toward me and found the wire leads bolted using self-tapping screws to the original element. Since the holes on the mounting tabs did not take the old screws, I had to drill out the holes on the tabs of the replacement element. After securely bolting the leads to either terminal on the element, I had to drill two holes on the back wall for the mounting plate of the new element. Then I used the cordless drill with the Philips bit to drive in stainless steel self-tapping screws (not zip screws) to secure the element to the back wall. I turned on the power at the circuit breaker and reset the clock (mechanical).
Turned off power. Removed two screws. Took out old element. Used pliers to remove connectors. Installed new element. Set screws. Turned on power. Works.
This is a simple repair of the PS249249 UPPER BAKE ELEMENT requiring only a 1/4 in nut driver or socket wrench.1. unplug the old element after removing the two screws holding the element in place. 2. Insert the new element in the electrical receptacle and reinsert the screws to secure the new element. Make sure not to remove any insulation.
turn of electric oven, removed screws and took out old element and put in new element and replaced screws. done simple and easy
First I made sure I turned off the breakers in the circuit box that controlled the circuits for the ovens . Then 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. The factory wrapped a large amount of tape around the connection between the wires and the heating element. That took a while to get off. And I searched for heat-resistant electric tape to replace it (because, it must have served some purpose if they had it on originally). The wires hooked onto the spade connectors for the new elements with no problem. I pushed them back into the hole in the back of the oven, replaced the screws, turned the breakers back on, and it worked great from there on.
