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.

juist loosened nut and pulled element out about three inches, detached leads, reattached new leads and installed.
(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...) I did have a problem with the wire connectors. they were a little over heated and loose, so I used pliers to ajust the connection.
Removed back of stove, removed screws holding old element. attached new element in same place, returned back to stove. My wife pushed element from inside stove into holes, which was a help. Voila! It works great.
took off the back of the stove..first Unplugged it! and undid the old unit, and put the new one on....easy peasy!..Thanks for your fast mailing!
Turned off main power at electrical breaker. With pliers, removed two screws that hold element in place. Pulled element out about 3 to 4 inches. Disconnected two wires from element. With pliers, adjusted connections on new element connections from horizontal to vertical position. Connected two wires to connections of new element. Installed new element in oven with original two screws. Powered on main electrical breaker. Oven back in operation! Also, part arrived in 3 days! I'm a happy camper!
Just took the back of the stove off and removed old one and put new one in. Very simple.
It was really easy. Removed the racks, removed the 2 quarter-inch screws with a nutdriver. Pulled the bad element out about 3-4 inches, enough to unhook the wires attached to the element with spade connectors. Unhooked the wires and removed bad element. Hooked up new element and reversed the process. Thanks PartSelect!
First, trip the circuit breaker for your stove. Second I removed the two screws ( 1/4" nut driver makes this go quickly ) that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches ( double check the electricity is off with your tester )and disconnected the two wires from each side of the element. Press connectors on new element and slide back in.
Took the back off, and took the terminals off. Took out the old element and put the new one in and put the terminals on and screwed it back in and put the back on. And all done.
Moved stove out from wall and cabinets, then unplugged the stove. Removed the oven racks, then removed the 2 screws securing the baking (lower) element to the rear wall of the oven. Pulled the element out a few inches and disconnected it from the stove wires. Removed old element. Removed screws from rear panel to gain access to wiring. Inserted new element and connected to wiring. Put element in place and replaced the 2 screws in rear wall. Put rear panel back in place and replaced panel screws. Plugged stove back in and moved back into place. Tested oven and it worked just fine. Parts Select did a great job of filling my order and promptly shipping it. I got it in 2 working days.
Removed sheet metal plate from back of oven. Disconnected two lead from existing bake element. Removed existing bake element, replaced with new one. Connected wires, replaced sheet metal.The trick with this old oven is to access the wires from the back.
The only difficultly I had was to bend down the ends of the new element so they were straight. Easily done with a pair of pliers. Slide the connectors from the oven over the ends, and put them back into the holes for them in the oven.Correct size socket and it was installed in minutes. I turned the oven on, and there was my heat. I used an oven thermometer to check the heat, and it was perfect. Quick service and the element was exactly the correct size.
first i removed the two screws that hold the element in place. then pulled out about 3 inchesand disconnected the wires.installed in reverseorder.
