This bake element is found on the bottom of the oven.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
We removed the old element by removing the screws that attach it to the back of the oven. (make sure to secure the part that plugs into the actual element so that it won't pull into the back of the oven, we used clips to hold it). We removed the old element and placed the new one in position. Pushed the plugs into the element and screwed the element into place.In our case, we had to also order the clock portion of the stove, as the arcing of the element when it burned out, fried the circuit. So we ordered a new clock. It was also simple to do. It is one unit and we simply removed the old clock, writing down where each colored wire went, and put in the new one, attaching the colored wires. Works like new!We received our parts in 1 day! I priced the repair with an appliance repair service, and figure we saved ourselves @ $150. The parts themselves were $10-$30 cheaper than the repairman quoted us to repair.

Replacing the bake element in the oven was easy once I figured out which tool to use. I initially thought I needed a hex key but saw from a previous commenter that a nut driver is needed. I was able to attach it to a power drill to unscrew the nuts. once the plate was released it was easy to unhinge and install the new element. Be sure to turn off the electricity as the stove is on a 220 line.
remove power (unplug) remove screws from element unplug element replug new element replace screws reconnect power bake cookies until something else breaks.
Remove screws from back of oven after unplugging oven. disconnect wires from element by sliding of element. Remove screws holding element inside oven and slide element out. Replace element by doing everything in reverse. 20 minutes tops.
repair was exceptionally easy. Did not need the fiberglass tape that was mentioned in online repair steps. Just slipped the wires off and then back on the new element. Any 70 year old can do.
I am a DIY kind of wife. My husband works late most nights and I get home in the afternoon. It was really quit simple except for the element plug slipped into the back of the stove. So I had to pull the stove out from the wall and take a couple of screws out of the back and push the plug back through. It was scarry for a minute but it all ended up just fine and we had a wonderful dinner that night.
