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:
Removed the 2 screws that hold the element in place in the oven. Pulled on the element to expose the wires. At this point the element which was initially just cracked ,broke completely appart ,at the crack into 2 pieces. (Confirmed obvious element failure lol..) Ordered a new element and decided to just plug in the range so as to be able to use the stove till it arrived. Blue sparks and now no power at all to the stove. frustrated at my ignorance I go out side and check the breaker. It seemed ok,so now i worry about a blown fuse. I took the back panels off with appropriate socket and cant find a fuse..JUST GREAT!! i notced a burn mark where the wire connects to the element and figured out that it shorted because it was touching the inside of the oven ..I had not pushed it back flush. I found out how to simply slip the connector off of the element with the back open and now pushed the element back in place. I taped the wires with electrical tape so they would not short on anything,checked the breaker again and turned it off for a second..then back on. This time when i plugged the range back in I had power..whew what a relief!! When the new element arrived it took 10 minutes to take the 2 screws back out ,swap in the new element and slide on the wires to the connectors. I reinstalled the backing plate ,and put the 2 screw back in to hold the element. Problem solved!!

1. Turn breaker to off position.2. Using socket wrench, remove the old element.Takes a little prying to remove the connection from the eletrical wires.Be careful.3. Insert new part and tighten with socket wrench.
pulled out old element by unscrewing the 2 bolts in the back and vcarefully pulled out the two wire s . wires are very tight so if you let go of them which i did you will need a pair of needle nose plires to pull them out. other than that the installation is easy
Turned off power to stove. Removed burned-out element by removing two sheet metal screws and disconnecting two push-on electrical terminals. Installed new element by pushing on electrical terminals. Pushed the new element back in place and secured with two sheet-metal screws. Turned power back on and tested element. All OK.
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 and held them out with two pair surgical scissors. Besure you hang onto wires because they are a bear to get back thru hole.
I googled and did the step by step removal and installation of the element from a web site.. EHow
Unplugged the stove.Needed 1/4 inch socket to remove screws holding element and the back panel. Removed the electrical connections on the element and then removed the old element and replaced with the new element.Replaced screws holding the element in the oven.Replace the electrical connections on the element in the back of the stove.Replaced the back panel.Plugged the stove in and tested out.
Removed 2 hex head machine screws. Picked up on the element and slid wires through. One wire became unattached. Removed back panel, pushed wire through the oven wall, and replaced the back panel. Wires connected with push on connectors. Pushed attachment assembly back through the oven wall and replaced 2 machine screws. Viola! Working oven.
2 screws removed holding element in. Wires are very short and after removing from the element one wire went back into the insulation. Had to remove the back from the range to get access to wires.
Removed old baking element by removing two sheet metal screws inside the oven and pulling out the old element. When pulling out the old element, one of the wires was too short and popped back into the back of the oven. I then had to pull out the oven, take the shielding off the back of the appliance, gain some slack in the wire and push it back into the interior of the oven. I connected the new element and was finished with the repair.
First my husband removed the two screws that hold the element in place. Then pulled the element out and diconnected the two wires. The wires popped back in, so he took the shield off the back, I pushed the element in so he could see the prongs and hooked the wired back on. He then replaced the 2 screws and i was back to baking.Thanks
First- I slid the ove out and unscrewed the back metal piece/flap that covers where the element attaches to wires.Second- I unscrewed the two nuts/screws that holld the element in place-An appropriately sized socket wrench would have made it way easier.Third-Before pulling the element out, I disconnected the wire connection-the element tab just slid out of the connector.Fourth- Pull out the old element and replace with new one. Attach wires before screwing in the element place holders. Fifth-Replace back cover and screws. slide oven back into its nook,Sixth-Bake some cookies.
Simply remove it and replaced with new.

My husband did the repairs so I don't really know all of those details. I do know that the replacement product was delivered as scheduled and because I had read all of the other repair stories, I knew to tell him not to let the wires slip back into the back of the oven. Thanks for all of you who wrote about your experiences. It only took him 15 minutes to fix my oven!
