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:
Above all else it is imperative that the circuit breaker to the oven be turned off so that no current is flowing to the appliance. Two screws at the base of the heating element need to be removed at which point you can simply pull the element out. Carefully pull the electrical connections off and remove the broken heating element and replace it with the new one. Reinstall the screws. Turn the power back on and allow the element to heat until the oil that was applied to it at the factory burns away as a vapor in a few minutes. You're done!!!

Turned off the breaker Pulled the wall oven out of the cabinet (4-screws) set it on the floor. removed the back cover , pulled wire clips removed old broken heat element. and reversed the process.
First shut off circuit breaker. Removed two screws that hold the bake element in place pulled it out about two inches and dicconnected the two terminal wires. Replaced element in reverse order.Ordered part and recieved the next day. WOW!!
thought I'd unplugged the oven, turns out I disconnected the stove top, which is gas and a separate unit. This cautionary tale is here to remind all to look at the clock of the appliance on which you are working to see if there is still power flowing to it.I failed to notice until I was working at disconnecting the old element to prepare the unit for my husband to repaire after returning home. Thought I'd clean things up a bit before he had to get in there. One bright, big and loud pow! and electric fearsomeness set in but caused little damage to me but my ego. I think I got a scorched knuckle-but not burned. Stuff like this is what keeps the repair techs in business. I set the screw driver down and noted the clock was still lit up. D'oh! Shut off the breaker to the oven, cleaned it up, and left the repair to my husband, who made short work of the replacement. Also, we were sorry not to have bothered to remove the door while working on the element connections at the back of the oven. It would have been easier on his back-especially considering we had difficulty grabbing the wires to plug into the new unit due to my precipitous approach. We used an old hemostat(the pincher like grabber things mentioned in a different post) acquired from his years in the ER, and the oven works fine, is clean(er) and I am all through eating my humble pie. Bake on!
remove the screws, replaced the element, replaced the screws.
1-SHUT OFF POWER. You can just unplug if possible, but it may be easier to flip the breaker to kill all power to the unit. 2-Use 1/4 in socket to loosen the two brass screws that hold the bake element into the back of the unit. 3-Gently pull out the wires, and pull the bake element from the wires. 4-Replace bake element and put back together. In all it took me longer to walk to the garage to get/replace my tools than it did to repair the unit. Don't be afraid to do it yourself...especailly cause it'll save you at least 50% on the job. :)
The first task is to turn off the breaker so there is no power coming to the oven. I learned in the hard way that even though the oven is turned off, there is still a hot wire connected to the bake element. Next,I removed the oven door and shelves. Then I used a nutdriver to remove the two screws holding the element in place. I expected to find a plug, however the element is connected to two wires buried in the insulation. I pulled the wires off of the bake element, connected them to the new element and put everything back together. This is not a difficult task.
First I unplugged unit. Theni removed the two screws that hold the element in place . Then went to pull the element out to disconnect the two wires,but was having alittle trouble. There for I removed the large plate(cover) on the back of range,and removed the wires from this location. Put the new element in place,reattached wires,screwed back plate back on ,and pluged back in.
