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:
First I removed the screws and popped off the existing element. One of the wires "disappeared" back into the insulation, so I had to remove the back panel of the oven to access that wire and push it back through the opening. Then I attached the new element to the wires and replaced the finishing screws.

I first pulled the stove away from the wall to unplug and look from the rear. Look at the wiring from the back (you may have to remove 2 screws and the plate that covers the wiring) and take a picture of it if you can with your smart phone - this way when you go to put it back you have a reference. I then removed the oven racks and the 2 little bolts holding the element in place. Wiggle it toward you slowly so the wires don't pull off. It's easier if you use needle nose pliers to get the fittings off, if its hard wiggle the fitting it will come off. I put the connections on the new element and squeezed them tight not to move. I did put a small piece of electrical tape on the connection ends for my piece of mind. Screw it back in and, plug it in and turn on. If the element starts to glow your done, put the cover back on over the wires and slide it back in place. If your kind of handy you can do it.
Pulled the range out from wall (which took most on the repair time to do), removed back cover, pulled of terminals, went inside oven a remove the two screws holding Bake element. Inserted new element, tighten down screws, etc.............
First cut the power at the breaker and then removed the rear panel of the range. Then removed the two retaninig screws in the oven and then unplugged the old element in the back. Cleaned out the molten metal and remains of dinner and installed new element same way the old one came out and voila, oven is back in operation.
I removed the two screws that hold the element, then I took the back cover of the range to have access to the wires, after that, I took the old one out, placed the new one and finally hooked the wires and placed the two screws right back. Very easy. I thought about bringing someone to do the job, and after I was done, I couldn't believe how easy it was.
Being that the rest of the stove was functioning fine, it was still plugged into the electrical outlet, after unplugging the range, I used a nutdriver and and removed the back panel exposing the two electrical clips on the old heating element. After unplugging the two electrical clips, I removed the two screws that secure the heating element to the back of the inside of the range. Once the screws were removed, the heating element came right out. I inserted the new element, installed the two screws previously removed, plugged the two electrical clips on the back of the heating element, re installed the back panel, plugged the range in and cooked lasagna. Total repair time was 12 minutes.
Saw the repair on YouTube first, to get the general idea. Very simple after that.

Took out the nuts that held the old element, removed it, putin new element with tightened nuts...and it didn't work. We took off the plate on the back of the stove, found theelement contacts protruding through, attached them to thewire connectors that were close by, and it DID work. We were thankful it turned out to be easy!
Unplugged oven.I opened up back of oven the connectors to the heating element were showing. disconnected the wires(they just pulled off)went inside oven took the 2 screws out and pulled old heating element out. Put new element in and fastened it with the 2 screws. Went to back of oven slid the connectors together.Put back of oven back on plugged it in and started the oven. It worked
I had read some of the other comments about the repairs. The one that I found most useful was the one describing how short the connector was once they are removed. That isn't a joke about 3/4". My sujestion is to have tape and tape them to the back of the oven so as to not to loose them in the insulation. Once that was removed and reconnected the oven worked again like new. Even the most novice of people will find it a breeze.
Just put 2 screws in. It was simple. Web site very good details for finding parts.Fast turn around from order to delivery.Very satisfied!!!
burner went out Thursday evening, ordered new burner at 8:30 pm, new burner was delivered Saturday afternoon, removed back panel from range, removed burner, replaced burner, re-installed back panel. Took less than 1/2 hour to replace. Hardest part was finding the correct size socket.(ALL WITHOUT HELP FROM HUSBAND.) Thanks so much for prompt delivery.
1ST..Cut power at circuit breaker.2ND..Using nut driver, remove two sheet metal nuts.3RD..Gently tilt element upward and pull out until wire connectors show. There are two wires with flat connectors, use the vise grips to hold the wires so they don't slip back behind the wall of the oven, if they do, you will have to pull out the range from the wall and retrieve them! ( I used two surgical hemostats for this.)4TH..disconnect the old element, connect the new one....5TH..Gently slide element back in place, replace sheet metal nuts.6TH..reset circuit breaker
