This is a heating element compatible with various makes of ranges and ovens and is sold as an individual part. Measuring 20.5-inches wide and 20.25-inches (with terminals) long, this heating element is a genuine OEM part. If your range is not heating during the bake setting, not heating evenly, or if the element is burnt out or damaged, the element will need to be replaced. This repair is simple and only requires that you disconnect your oven from the wall outlet and use an appropriate screwdriver to disassemble and replace the element with the additional support brackets to secure it.

The oven would take an hour to preheat.

First, we turned on broil and the upper element turned orange and obviously worked. We figured the bottom element went out. The diagram on this site showed a bottom heating element that looked nothing like ours, but after reading other reviews, and reading that part that goes through the back of the oven was in the middle, and not off to the side, we ordered this element. It was perfect. All you have to do is unplug the oven, take out the bottom pan covering the element by removing 2 screws in the back, remove the lower small cover on the back of the oven and then unplug the old element, unscrew the old element on the inside of the stove, then install the new element and put everything back like it was. Nothing to it. It worked like a charm and my oven now heats up fast again. Easiest appliance repair job ever!

This part is used as a safety feature. If your range overheats this part will shut the range down.

The Range took forever to achieve the proper heating temperature with an inability to maintain a steady heat

I removed the bottom drawer,unplugged the Range and pulled it out to expose the rear cover panel. Using a nut driver (a screw driver can be used), I removed the rear panel to expose the Thermal fuse located almost dead center in the back of the Range. Unplug the two wires and loosen the screw holding it in position. Replace the thermal fuse, plug the two wires into the new part and replace the rear cover panel. Return the Range to its original position and plug it in. The job is done in less than 30 minutes.
