This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
first shut the breaker to range oven off at the AC panel. find the corect size Nutdriver for the two small screws that mount the Bake Element to back of the oven wall. Simpley remove both of the small screws, and then carefully pull the Bake Element out from the wall of the oven. Be very careful not to pull element too hard or too quickley so the elements wires do not pull off and fall behind into the oven wall insulation. Once the element has been pulled out just far enouph, clip both of the elements power wires with a clothes pin to keep them from falling behind into the oven wall insulation. Carefully remove both of the element power wires by gently pulling them lose from the old element. Remove the old element and disgard as needed. Place the new element in the oven and re-attach both of the elements power wires to the new element as required. Carefully push the new element back into the two small oven wall holes as required. Re-attach the two small oven wall screws with a Nutdriver. Turn the Oven range power breaker back on at the AC power panel.

This was my first attempt at an appliance repair. The job did nit look too difficult so I thought I would give it a try. The most important thing I can recommend is to have some type of clips to hold the wires after disconnecting the old element. As soon as you disconnect the wire, it retracts into the insulation. My job became more difficult and required pulling out the stove, removing the rear panel, and now needing a second person to push the wires back Into the oven. What should have been a 15 minute job now was a 30 minute procedure. Keep in mind that when you pull a stove out you now have to get the cleaning supplies out also. Word to the wise:USE THOSE PLASTIC SNACK BAG CLIPS! To hold the end of the wires.
First of all i ordered the part and recieved it the following day, thank you PartSelect. :) Installation was a breeze. I just turned off the main circuit breaker then pulled the range out from its position between the countertops. I used an adjustable wrench to remove two small bolts holding the baking element in place, carefully pulled out the element to expose the two wires, disconnected them and connected the new element, put the backplate bolts back in turned on the main breaker and the oven worked as good as new.
Repair was fairly easy. Had the problem that I had read about with one of the connection wires falling behind oven. Time consuming to take of back of stove but otherwise all went very well.
Cut off stove at breaker box then remove shelves.use a nut driver, quarter- inch to remove two screw that hold element in then carefully pull the element out about two inches they have a push on clips that holds the wires to the element use a piece of wire to keep the push on clips from going back into the stove.Pull the clips off with needle nose plyers and reconnect. Most important thing don't let the wires pull back into stove. Duke
First turn off the breaker to stove then remove panel on back of stove about 12" wide and about 30" tall 6 or 7 screws. Then pull wires off of element, then go into the oven and remove 2 screws, pull out element, then same thing in reverse very easy.
First unplug the unit from the outlet. Then remove the rear cover, covering the electrical wires. Disconnect the hot /ground wires from the element leads. Then open the oven door and use the nut driver to remove the inner screws to release the bake element. Insert new element and replace all screws and electrical leads. You're all done!
I removed the racks and oven door. I used a socket to remove the screws that secured the element. I pulled the element out to gain access to the wire connectors and used pliers to remove the wires from their connectors to the burned out element. I installed the new element by using the pliers to secure the wire connectors to the element and then installed the element with the socket thus securing the element with the screws.
turned off power to stove.removed old coil, as instructed by internet info.replace new coil.il
The repair was easy to fix. I unplugged the stove to be safe, unscrewed the broken element and disconnect. And reconnected the new element and screwed it into place.
It was so simple.after turning off power 1. removed oven door 2.used nut driver to remove the screw nuts. 3.used clothes pins to hold wires and prevent them from falling back into insulation. 3.connected new element to wires and inserted into insulation area. 4.reconnected the nut screws. 5.replaced door. 6.turned power back on.
Removed 2 screws, removed element, replaced element, replaced 2 screws - Worked great
Turned off power to the stove, had my tools ready. I had read about replacing this part so I thought I was prepared, well the most difficult part of it all was the wires hooked to the bake element, they do not come out very far from the back of the stove, maybe 1 inch not much to work with & you do have to secure them with some type of clamp so you do not loose them into the back of the stove, (I had read about some people having to pull the stove out, take the back cover off & stick the wires back through, I did not want my husband to have to do that, Ha Ha) besides for the wires being to short everything went well. Put it all back together & turned power on & tested the stove "IT WORKS" again. Thanks to everyone that shared their stories It helped me!
My husband did the repair, I held the light. Pull out stove, unplug it, remove the screws with the nut driver, free old element from clips, put in new element and hook up clips, replace screws in the new plate.
My son read all the blurbs on line and came prepared to keep the little clips from slipping into the insulation. No problems, it was quick and simple. I recommend reading instructions on line from others, they gave good tips
