This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First I turned the power off at the breaker box. Then I removed the two screws at the rear of the oven and un-secured the three clips(top of stove) that all hold the element in place. Carefully I pulled the element out of the back of the stove to expose and pull out the electrical wires and their connectors. At this point I used the multimeter to CONFIRM no power. With no power present I un-clipped the electrical connections and then did all the above steps in reverse. 15 - 20 minutes total repair time.

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. Ordered new part on-line for less than 1/2 of local price...including shipping. Local shop would have taken 10 days for part at twice the price. Mine arrived in 72 hours...and Sunday dinner was saved!
We had to take the back off the stove and disconnect the old element. One side had bad wiring. we had to repair the wires and inserted the new element. The job would not have taken so long if there were any kind of instructions.
Turn off the power to the stove at the circuit breaker. I then loosened the two screws at the rear of the oven and gently pulled the heating elements toward the front of the oven. I found that if I worked the element in a circular motion, it was easier to remove. Once I pulled the element out far enough where the wire connectors were exposed (about 5 - 6 inches), I pulled the wire connectors off the element and reattached to the new element before reversing the whole process. After everything was back in place, I turned the circuit breaker back on and tested the oven, which worked perfectly.
Cut off electricity, double checked to be sure, un screwed two hex head srews --un-plugged element plugged new one in the replaced screws and hanger. Turned on electricity anddd oven good as new maybe another 21 years
At first I tried to remove the element from the top of the oven. I took out the screws with a nut-driver (1/4"). Them I tried to pull the element out slowly so I could unplug it from the power wires. One of the wires pulled off bfore I could get it out. I then pulled the range out from the wall and removed the back from it. THEN I noticed that if you pull the stove away from the wall first and take off the back the wires are right there and easy to take on and off. Then replace the the back panel, plug in the stove and test the element. It will give off a slight odor as the manufacturing coating is burned off.
