This closed hinged-style bake element has screw in terminals.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
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, reconnected the wires to the new element, reattached it to the oven and voila!It worked. What was really cool, once I ordered the part, I received it in only two work days!Good job folks!

Hardest part was getting the wrong element and having to send it back and reordering correct one....too many variables. Two screws inside the oven removed, pull out range and take off back and attach new element to plug ins!
Turned off power at breaker panel. Removed 2 screws attaching element to stove. Pulled element out a couple of inches and removed 2 wires attached with screws. Installation is reverse order of removal.Be careful not to twist the terminal ends when tightening screws.shipping was very fast!
Of course I unplugged the stove. Then I removed the cover to reveal the connections for the element. After unscrewing the two wire connectors, I had to use a nut driver to remove the two screws holding it in place in the oven. The new element went in easily. I screwed it in place in the oven and then attached the two wires in the back and replaced cover. Plugged it in, tested it, and we were good to go.Note: this was a second attempt, The first time I ordered a heating element with push on connectors not screw on. Beware! Pay attention to the pictures and description. I ordered too quickly.
First, shut off the breaker to the stove. Removed old element by unscrewing the two screws on the plate where the element attached at the bottom of the inside of the oven. The old element was corroded at the connection, so disconnect it, attached the new one, pushed it back in the insulated socket then reattached the two screws on the plate. Flipped the breaker back on. Works great. Only took about 25 min. from start to finish.
Our element blew in our oven, we took it out and saw what we needed. It was very easy to see what part we needed to order because of the great pictures on the website. The larger views really helped. We got the part quickly and put it in. It was a breeze and now our oven is working great! The best part however, is it only cost about $33.00 including shipping and handling. Much cheaper than if we would have had someone come in to fix it!
Note: Please make sure power is off!!! Turn off at the fuse panel,Main. Test oven after you turn off breaker...try turning on oven with normal switch, indicator light should be off. Also check interior light, usually wired 110 volts, may be on a separate circuit, just for safety!!. Remove retaing screws, scewdriver will work , but a nut driver is easier. Pull old element out gently and check between terminals with volt meter. Remove screws on element holding feed wire, reverse this process to install. Test oven for proper operation after installation...make sure oven cycles through a set temperature range.
Finding the replacement part on partselect.com was easy. The search feature brought me to a diagram of the bake element and offered precise grid measurements to assure me it was the correct part. Be sure to completely unplug your stove before doing anything. The only tools I used were a small nut driver, a standard pliers and a flashlight (and a cushion for my old knees, ha).Installation was easy, but you have to be very careful to not bend the little prongs were you attach the element to the stove wires... they bend pretty easily, so hold them tight or hold them in a pliers firmly but without crushing them. Drive the two screws to attach the element to the wires; then, drive the two screws to hold the element face plate against the rear of the oven, and viola, you're done! Thanks, partselect - website, price, packaging and shipping were perfect! Also, I got several good tips from the feedback of other customers that were very helpful. That is a nice feature of your website and a good customer service.
Before you start, make sure the circuit breaker is not tripped, which can explain element not heating.In my case, the toaster element was ok, which tells us that the oven is receiveing electric current.1) Take the grills out so you have free access2) Remove the door - this model just pull it up to let it free3) remove the 2 screws securing the element on backwall of the oven and gently pull the element out4) if you have a multimeter: a) set it to AC, greater than 300 V b) use your alligator clips, attach the clips to the contacts of the element c) briefly turn the oven on: expect to read between 230 and 260 volts5) remove the screws securing the old element6) install the new element;7) secure the element back to the backwall8) turn the oven briefly on and feel the heating element: should come warm pretty quic;- Job done -When you remove the screws securing the wire to the old element, make sure the wires are not cracked, or interrupted.Otherwise, a real simple and easy fix.Specs of this element are what I missed but here they are:Resitence : 25.5 OhmsVolts: 230 - 260VolstPower : 2050 to 2650 WattsThe power depends on the voltage, so make sure you dont have it too low (less than 220 ) or too much (yeah, 260V is nearing upper limits)
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. connected the wires to the new element. pushed the element back in place the screwed it back to the back of the stove.
Removed the plug from wall socket.Removed door to oven by lifting it straight up while partially open, in locked position.Remove Baking shelves.Removed 2 screws @ the back of element where it goes into the ovens back wall with a nut wrench and gently pull the element towards you until wires are exposed.Using a flat blade screw driver hold on to the end of the element near the end with the screw and support it as you un screw the wire so the end of the element does not bend as you turn the screw.After both wires are removed, remove the old element.Install the new Element in reverse.Very Easy!
It was pretty easy. I just had to remove two screws, remove old element, connect new element and put screws back on. For the burners all you had to do was disconnect old one and reconnect new ones. The parts even included new ceramic covers for the wires.
It was realatively simple, turned off the power to the oven, removed the bake element , by loosening the two metal screws in the back of the oven, with a nut driver and removing the screws, then pulling the element outward, to expose the two wires ,that were connected to the element, using a nut driver to remove the two screws and a pair of pliers to hold the wire connectors, then removed the old element. Installed the new bake element, by connecting the two wires to the element, with the two screws, then pushing the element back in place , attaching the element to the back of the oven, with the two metal screws, finished with the installation, turned power back to the oven , and tested to make sure the oven worked , all done.
turn power off at circuit breaker box, remove old coil from oven, attach the new coil and attach to wall of the oven. Very easy to repair.
Turned off breaker,first . Then removed 2 nutscrews and pulled unit out , 4 inches ,removed 2 nutscrews joining the 2 wires and the 2 terminals of the bottom element. Removed bottom unit and replaced with new unit . reversing the process. Turned breaker on and tested the oven. Works fine. Took less than 15 minutes.
