This is a 240 volt bake element for your oven or range. The kit comes with two installation screws and the element. The element functions by supplying heat from the bottom of the oven to bake or cook your food. You may need to replace the bake element if your oven is not heating properly. Each screw gets screwed into each wire terminal with a Phillips screw driver. Hold the wires forward to make sure the wires do not fall back through the rear of the oven. Unplug your appliance or shut off your circuit breaker to the appliance before installing the new part.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Removed screws from plate holding the element in then removed the screws from the wires attached to the element. Reversed the process and was finished. Oven is back in working order. (I am recently widowed and this is the first time I have had to do this type of repair)

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 wiresthe Replacement fit easily. Part was delivered the day after ordering even though I used normal delivery. Oven broke on a Thursday,ordered the part Friday morning, back in operation on Saturday
Had my youngest son removed the two nut screws that held the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. Removed element and installed new element in reverse order.
I removed the screws that held the element in place. This was the most difficult part because clearance was tight between the screws and the element. I gently pulled the element out enough to expose the wire connections. I disconnected the wires and removed the element. Installation was the reverse - connect the wires, re-position the element, re-install the final screws.
Turned off circuit breaker, took two screws out to be able to pull element out from back. Took two more screws out to remove old element from oven. Did the opposite to install the new bake element. Turned power back on, and it worked fine.
Used a nut driver to remove two hex screws holding element to the back of the oven and then the two hex screws connecting the element to the oven wires. I pulled the element out and reversed the process. I turned the oven on and made sure the element worked.
First, I turned of breaker for the appliance. Removed two hex head (1/4") screws that hold element in place at back of oven. Gently pulled element exposing wires connected at base of element by hex head screws. Removed the screws and olf elelemt, placed new element in place, tightened screws, inserted into base and tightned screws for plate that holds element. After turning on the breaker, I set the oven to a low temp so I could feel the heat without burning my hand and was satisfied that the element worked.
I removed the two screws that held the element panel on. I removed the lead wires from the element, making sure the wires didn't retract back into the wall. I put the new element in, reconnected the lead wires and put the screws back in. I was concerned that the panel wasn't as long (top to bottom) as the previous one and it barely covered the hole, but it works fine. It would have cost me $60 to have it done by my home warranty company so I saved almost half.
First I located the circut breaker to the oven- once no power supply was confirmed (oven light was out) I diconnected the screws that held the old element in place. Pulled the old element forward and disconnected them from the wires. The hardest part was getting onto the oven to reconnect the wires to the new element since the door opens down the work space is a little tight and awkward. Connected new element and replaced screws. Done in less than 20 minutes and no repair service calls to pay!
First, I shut off the power to the oven... no point in risking a nice electric shock. The next thing I realized was I could not see anything... enter the flashlight. Then, well then it was really easy. I removed the two screws that held the element to the back wall of the oven, pulled the element (and some of the insulation stuffing) out about 2 inches to reveal the two wires and their connecting screws. Unscrewed them, put the new element in, reconnected the wiring, restuffed the stuffing and reattached it to the oven wall. Turned on the power and she heated up faster than ever. Speaking of fast, my part arrived the day after I ordered it and that was with regular shipping. Thanks fellas.
remove 2 screws holding element to oven back wall/ unscrew wires from element/ new element install the reverse of removal
My husband removed the old element by shutting down the power, then unscrewing the element. Then he screwed in the new element and turned oven on for 5 minutes to break it in.Very simple and so cheap!
First I removed the two srews that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about three inches and disconnected the two wires. I attached the wires to the new element and we had our oven working again. I really am happy with the timely service I received from PartSelect and would recommend them to anyone.
I removed the two screws that held the element in place. I pulled out the element and disconnected the two wires and unscrewed the screws and then place the new element to it. screwed the wires back to the element wires and then push it back in. Replaced the outside plate and screw the two screws back in. Save myself money by doing it myself.
I remove the back plate, pull out the wires, and unscrew the screws and put the new part. The problem that I had was reaching to the back of the oven to remove the screws. Other than that it was very simple.
