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, disconnect the power from the electrical box, not just turn off that oven. specially if you have a double oven. Just turn one off is not enough.I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out slowly about 2 inches to expose the connectors, and then disconnected the two wires by holding the wire (female) connector by one plier and pull the element (male) connector out with another plier. Then, insert the new element connectors, and push the wire back into wall then fasten the element with 2 screws.

Disconnect the Power to the Oven1. Took out the baking racks2. With a nut driver, removed the two machine screws holding the baking element.3. Pulled the baking element out 3-4 inches and using pliers, removed the wires from the back of the broken element.4. Reattached the wires to the new element and reversed process.
Exactly as you descibe and after disconnecting the two wires from the contacts on the element and taping the two wires to the oven wall so they do not fall back into the hole from where they came was extremly helpful. Also was an opportune time to clean the oven properly prior to installing the new element.Thanks
e.g. 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...) Then I simply re-connected the replacement element and viola!
After I removed the 2 screws holding the element to the rear wall, I was afraid to pull too hard on the wiring for fear of breaking something. However as I pulled on the connectors, I could see there was some wire that I could pull out through the insulation (maybe 1"). I put a clamp on each wire for fear it might slip back inside. I then disconnected the clips and reconnected to the replacement element, pushed the wiring & clips back, and replaced the 2 screws. I am a DIY guy, but 76 years old, and convinced anyone could do this.
Turned off breaker to oven at breaker box. Removed the 2 screws. Gently pulled the heating element out enough to remove the 2 wires. Connected the 2 wires to the new element. Pushed connecdted ends back into hole and replaced and tightened 2 screws. Turned breaker back on, tested oven, and it worked.
Loosen the screws to the bake element. Carefully pull out old element until wires are exposed. Pop off the clips from wires to heating element (leaving clips on the wires). Attach clips to new heating element. Screw back into place. Piece of cake!
Really simple. shut off breakers. checked the breakers were off. then checked again (this is 220V power to the element).Undid the 2 nuts holding the old element in place. Pulled out the element into the oven space an inch or two.Used pliers to pull the contacts out from the old element (not by the wires folks). reversed the process and I was done!
Simple job. Disconnected the power to the oven, removed the two screws holding the old lower element, pulled it out and disconnected the two electrical wires. Installed the new one by simply reversing the removal process. Very impressed with PartSelect on price and delivery. My local repair company wanted to charge me twice the price and a part delivery time three times longer. Will definitely use PS in future
basically unscrew two screws, unplug, plug new one in and screw the screws back in.
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. I plugged in the new element and proceeded to clean the oven which is what I was doing when the problem occured.
had to drill new holes
