This heating element, used in any range/oven, is an open-style bake element. It is placed at the bottom of the oven and supplies heat. If your baking element does not supply consistent heat or is burnt out, then replacing the element is the solution to this problem. This heating element is a 19-1/4 inches wide by 15 inches long. The push-on male spade terminals are 13-3/4 inches apart. The tools needed for this replacement are: a screwdriver and needle-nose pliers. The first step in is to unplug the range or shut off the house circuit breaker before starting. Unscrew the back of the oven cavity to pull out wires from the defective element. Reconnect wires to the new element and screw it back.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First my husband removed the two screws that held the heating element into place. I had tried it with pliers which didn't work well. But with the proper socket the screws came loose easily. He pulled the heating element out a few inches and detached the wires. He then slipped the wire over the new heating element and screwed the new element into place. Now we can bake again. Very easy and we received the part quickly.

Loosened the two nuts that hold the element in place. Gently pulled the old elementr forward to expose connections. Disconnected the old element and attached the new element. Slipped the new attached element through the holes being carful not to disturb the insulation. Once the element was in the correct position with the tabs against the back wall of the oven replaced the two nuts and the job was complete. The whole job took approx. 5 minutes. It was very, very easy.
Pulled stove out, removed screws that hold the element in place. Then pulled element out a few inches, diconnected the two wires. I connected the wires to the new element and put everything back to right. It was quick and easy.
I unplugged the stove and used a flashlight for light. I tried a phillips head, but it was too big. I then got a set of pliers and unscrewed the two screws an pulled out the element. I removed the 2 electrical plugs from the ends of the element and attached the new ones. They went on from the top where as the old ones slid from the side. after pushing the element back in i screwed the screws back in and the backings were a tad large so I bent them up and presto it was fixed!
the repair itself went smoothly. the clips that the new part connected to were old and slack. the clip came undone and had to pull the stove out to get to part from the back. i squeezed the clip together to make it stay on the new part and it held. the oven is heating well now.
Removed the old element by sliding the wiresattached to it. Unscrew 2 screws, slide thenew one to the wirings and put the 2 screws back.It works. Praise the Lord.
I turned off the circuit breaker to the range. Next I removed the two screws that fastened the element to the rear of the oven. Then I pulled the element out far enough to be able to reach the spade clips and disconnected the element. I connected the replacement element to the clips and fastened it to the rear of the oven with the two screws. I turned the circuit braker on and the element functioned properly.
Really easy process. First I unplugged the oven for safety then I proceeded to remove the 2 screws that were holding the old element in place. Next I removed the old element then installed the new one. After installing the two screws I connect the oven back to its power source and BANG!............. It works like a charmI give it a A+ installation
First unplugged the stove, then removed the screws holding the element in place. Next I pulled the element out until the wires were visible and unplugged them. After removing the old element, I plugged the new one in and positioned it with the screws. Plug the stove back in and done.
Removed back cover, unhooked wires, unscrewed and removed bad baking element. Reverse order to install. Less than 15 min. repair job.
Turned off power to oven at breaker box.Removed one screw that holds the element in place. The other screw would not unscrew, I went to hardware store for drill bit and special hand tool (which cost less than $15) to remove stuck screw. I didn't have the right size screw, so I went back to hardware store for two new screws. Pulled the element out and disconnected the two wires(they are plug-in). Lost one wire into the back of oven because I did not hod it for the new element to plug onto. I removed the back of oven by unscrewing several screws and located the wayward wire. I threaded it back into the hole (easy) and someone grabbed it and held onto it while I screwed the back of the oven back on. Then I placed the wire connectors onto the new element being sure to squeeze hard with pliers so there would not be any slipping off of the wires. The power was restored and the element worked great. A less than 30 minute job took over 2 hours because of inot thaving he right tools.
Repair was simple. Unplugged stove, removed a plate from back of stove. Disconnected wiring. Removed screws from inside oven, removed old element, installed new element. Replaced screws, hooked up wiring, replaced back plate, plugged it in, used it that night.Thanks for sending the right part the first time and getting it shipped so quickly.
