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.

I assumed the bake element was the problem,so I ordered one from Part Select.I was amazed that I got it in 2 days! After removing the 2 screws that held the element in place,I disconnected the 2 wires from the element.I wasnt being very careful and let one of the wires slip back into the hole in the back of the oven.Couldnt get the wire back out,so I had to take the back of the stove off to get to it.Next time,I'll be careful to keep the wires from going back into the holes.Then I connected the element,screwed it in place an turned the oven on.Success !!!
Unplugged oven, unscrewed element, removed back pannel, unclamped old element and removed it, installed new element, clamped it to wires, screwed element to inside of oven, then replaced back pannelWhole thing took about five minutes.
First I disconnnected the breaker for the oven and then removed the broken element by unscrewing the screws that held it in with a nut driver. I then pulled the element out exposing the connected wires. I removed the wires from the element by pulling them off with my fingers. Using a set of hemistat pliers I secured the wires so they wouldn't slip into the holes at the back of the oven. I connected the new element by slipping the connectors onto the element and finished by putting the ends of the element back into the holes and securing it into place with the screws using the nut driver.
I could see a visible burnout on the element.Got it really fast.Removed two screws, pulled it out, disconnected two wires. installed a new one in, and was done!
simple ratchet extension and socket to remove screws and replace. be sure to crimp the connectors with pliers before ataching the element.
First turned off the breaker to the oven, I opened the oven door, took out the baking racks, removed the two screws that hold the element in place. Pulled the element out about 3 inches, disconnected the wires, Installed the new element in the reverse order.

(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...Really really easy . I am a single woman with no repair experance and had no problems.
Open the oven door and removed a metal screw from each side of the element on the rear wall of the oven. Pull each side of the element out about 2-3 inches and you should see the terminal fitting with a spade type connector. Remove the connector from each side and discard the old element. Place the connectors on your new element and push it through the openings that the old element came out of. Replace each of the metal screws and you are done.
took out the two screws pulled the element out unplugged the wires, plugged in the new element, stuck the element back in the holes and put the screws back in
Only two screws to remove, so it was very easy to just pull the element out, remove the wire connectors from the old element and place on the new one. This is one repair you should NEVER call a service person for! Be brave--anyone can do this.
took the screws out and then put the new element in and that was all.
