This bake element kit comes with two installation screws.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Removed the two screws that held the element in place. Pulled the unit out a few inches to get at the bolted wires. The hard part is reaching in the oven using bifocal lenses and trying to block out the oven light. Getting past that obstacle, the rest went very well.

Turn off power to oven. Make sure with tester that the power is indeed off. Disconnected the two fasteners holding the old unit face plate to rear of oven. Pull the unit outward to expose the leads. Disconnected the leads. Reform new element to remove minor bends so it will sit flat on the floor of the oven. With plies holding the leads straight connect new unit to oven leads. Push new unit back into mounting hole. Reconnect new unit face plate to back of oven. Check that unit is level. Turn the power back on. Test the unit. All works just fine.
shut off circuitbreaker.removed two screws.kind of hard since screws were 25 years old and were tight.then i removed the oven door and pulled out the elementout and removed two more screws that held the wires to the element,then removed the element and replaced the new one and screwed it to the wires and thenthe next two screws that held the element in place. turn on the circuitbreaker and it was a miracle it got hot!
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..Took out the old element and reversed tjhe procedure to install the new one
I have to admit that I tried to remove the element myself but I did not have the right tool for the last two screws. If I did it would have been very easy. I ordered the part and had someone else put it in so I cheated.
Removed bake element by taking out the screws of the element plate at the back of the oven. Pulled out the bake element and disconnected the two electrical wires attached to the element by screws. Screwed on the new element and reattached the back plate. The light bulbs (upper and lower oven) were replaced by pulling up on the wire holding the light bulb protective glass enclosure in place, removing the enclosure and then unscrewing the light bulb. Then screwing in the new bulb and re-attaching the glass enclosure.
Simple, unscrew and then re-screw
having read instructions from previous PartSelect users it was a snap. Nutdriveer, and screw driver were the only tools needed. This was a wall oven and the most difficulty I had was getting to the nuts with the door open. I really didn't want to take off the door.
Turn off circuit breaker. Release bake element from back of oven with a phillips head screwdriver. Remove bake element from heating wires with an adjustable wrench. 1/4 nutdriver was a little to big large for the old screw. Do not allow wires to fall back into the installation. Reverse the procedures for installing the new bake element. Most difficult part of the repair is having old eyes and not being able to focus on the work site which is about 12- 14 inches from your eyes. Young people with good eyes no problem. Oven heats like a new unit.
Flipped the breaker, checked that there wasnt power. Unscrewed the 2 screws holding the bake to the back wall of oven. Used nut driver to unhook bake from electical leads. Used new screws from new bake to attach to leads. Mounted bake with original screws to back wall oven.
Took out the old (removed 2 screws holding the element to the back of the oven, disconnected the 2 screws attaching the electrical wires to the element). Decided to clean the oven with EasyOff. It took longer to spray this on, and then later wipe it up, than the repair itself. Reversed the procedure for the new element. A very simple repair - my wife is amazed!
we of course turned off the power. the box wrench loosened the nuts. the part fit easily in our 30 year old oven. It was easy to attach the leads to the heating element--a bit awkward, but we finished the job in 20 minutes. At first, the new element looked different from the old one, but it fit perfectly. The oven is as good as "new" needs cleaning!
Removed access screws from bake element cover, removed screws retaining wire connections on bake element, reverse procedure, and heat to burn off contaminants.
remove/replace baking element. Relatively simple to do; however, I used the old screws/nuts as they worked better than the new ones which were included.
First job was power off! Next step was to remove the two screws holding the element to rear wall of oven. Next is was to gently pull the wires through the hole as far as possible. At this point I needed pliers to stabilize the joint while I removed the two screws of the electrical connection. Now it was easy to clean the oven to remove arc residue. Now it was a matter of reassemble. Hardest point was getting the screws started in the electrical connections without cross threading while reaching in over the door. Use pliers to ensure you don't bend the connection wires on the element. Finally remount the element with the two original screws. This was the second element to fail. Last time I removed the oven door for better access. I think it was quicker with door on but a lot more bending and reaching.
