This heating element is a partially open-style bake element. Carrying 240V and 2000W, it is 19-1/4" wide by 15" long. The two 90-degree push-on male spade terminals are 13-3/4" apart.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Probably a good idea to either unplug unit or make sure oven is in off position first, then remove screw on either side of old bake element, then gently pull out about 3 inches to expose wire connections and carefully disconnect each slide-on connector. Dispose old element in trash and replace with new one from partselect.com in reverse order. Very simple and much less expensive than either buying a new appliance(if you've been satisfied with what you have), paying a repairperson to come in and/or trying to hunt down the right part from a "local" appliance store/warehouse. The part was easily identifiable via the graphic depiction on the partselect.com website, arrived in excellent condition and in record time for normal ground shipping(less than 2 days from order date!), and I experienced kind and competent customer service from the get-go. A do-it-yourselfer like me really can't ask much more than that when it comes to appliance repair!

I pulled the range out of its space, disconnected the power cord, disconnected the two electic power wire on the heating element. Then I disconnected the two retaining nuts on the inside of the oven and pulled the heating element out. Then reversed the order and wala, hot oven and now my corn bread does not burn.
First I cut the breaker to the oven. Then pulled racks out of oven. Then used my nut driver to take the two screws of the back mounts. I then pulled the broken part out and installed the new one. I was not sure at all about doing this until I read some of your other testemonies, but after that, I became an oven repairman. The very next day after instalation, my wife cooked me a ham and a pan of cornbread! Thanks for the fast service, y'all got me back to eating my wifes homemade dinners within three days of ordering my part. There is no way to thank you for that, but here is a very large THANK YOU! I will definitely be back(hopefully not soon!) when I need other appliance parts.
installed terminal block kits and burners worked great
unplug old baking element using socket tool and put in new baking element - very simple and it works!
Removed element by loosening two screws, disconnected heater element and connected new element and reattached to oven wall. Turn on oven to check for heater to work. Confirmed heater worked. Repair complete.
I just removed two screws. Pulled the element out, unhooked the wires. plugged the wires into the new element screwed it in and was done
Unscrew the old one and unplug the wire leads. Then plug in the new one and bolt back up.
Really easy--unscrew screws, pull element out, unclip wire connection. Re-clip to new burner, put back in--done. Saved a $100 tech trip PLUS double mark up on part!
I watched my husband do this repair so if it happens again I can do it myself. He removed the screws holding the element in place, unplugged the element, plugged the new element in and replaced the screws. I am so glad I found your site. The posted pictures and measurements made finding the exact part a breeze and the element arrived in a couple of days. We saved a bundle!! Thanks.
Removed the racks first. Then removed the two screws that held the element in place.I then pulled the element out about three inchesexposing the connecting wires.Each wire has a female slide type connector just disconect each one and then connected the new element .Attach new element by reptacing the two screws.
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, replaced witht he new element
pulled the element out and found it burn the connectins on one side. so i had to pull the stove and open the back to get to wiring. put a new connecter on. then connected the new element. closed the back.
If I didn't need my oven ASAP, I would not even have attempted to do this repair before my husband came home. But he wasn't going to be home for hours, and I needed it now!First, I took off the back panel. Slid off the wire connectors. Then moved to the inside of the oven and unscrewed the two screws that secure the element to the oven, and pulled the old one out. Put the new one in and reconnected the wires from the back, and replaced the back panel.That was it! It worked great!! Very simple.I called my husband immediately to tell him of my great accomplishment!! I was so proud of myself!Thanks,Vicki
Oven is an in the wall unit. Normally it is an unplug and plug in. The old one had a melted connector, so the connector had to be cut off and replaced as well. Be sure to turn off the electricity at the braker to be safe, first.
