What is the distance between the two terminals? Side to side width

Val for model number MER5510AAW
Answer:

Hi Val, Thank you for your inquiry. The part is on a grid background that is made up on one inch squares. From what I am seeing the terminals are 19 inches apart. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Answer:

Hi Gloria, Thank you for your inquiry. No, you would not be able to use a bake element in place of the broil element. I have attached the part that you would need to replace in a link below. Good luck with your repair.

Heating element stopped heating

I unplugged the cord to the stove. Then I removed the two screws on the broken heating element. Once the screws were removed, I slid off the two wires attached to the element prones. Grab the new element and attached the two wires. Reinstalled screws. Plugged in the cord, and turned on oven. Heating element came on.

Baking element went out on our cook stove.

It was easy finding the part on line and the part was delivered within three days. It only took about 10 minutes to change element. I was so pleased with the product, that I just changed a thermostat on my parents stove which was purchased through parts select and that was very easy to change also.

Oven bake element failed.

Video showed element being unplugged from inside oven. My oven wires did not extend into oven cavity and they fell behind the back oven wall when I unplugged them. After trying to catch the two wires using needle nose pliers through 3/4" holes several times, I finally decided to take the complete back off the range. When I did this, I was able to see the wires with the female couplings. I then had my wife firmly hold the new element against the back of the oven from inside letting me connect the wires to the new element and replace the oven back. THIS WOULD HAVE QUALIFIED AS "EASY" AND A 15 TO 30 MINUTE JOB if this technique had been known from the outset.

The lower baking element had burnt out, literally

Unscrewed two Phillips screws holding the element in the back of the oven, pulled out the element and the leads, disconnected the wires, removed element from oven and reversed the process to install new one. One most important and critical maneuver - the element is connected to the hot wire on the left side and the switch shuts off the element by disconnecting electrical flow to the neutral side of the power so its not enough to just have the oven turned off - makes one heck of a spark when the wire touches the stove panel when you pull the wire through the hole (220 at 60 amps).

Element was broken(literally).

First, turn off the breaker to the range. Then just remove the 2 screws that hold the element at the back of the oven. Pull the wire connectors apart or push them off with a regular screwdriver. Instructions that I read said to make sure the wires don't fall back through the holes, but in our case the insulation held them in place. Reconnect the wire connectors to the new element and reattach with the screws. Easy!

The old element in the oven sparked and broke in 4 pieces.

Went down stairs and turned the breaker for the oven off. Opened the oven door, took a phillips head wrench and took two screws out of the back of the oven that held the element in place. Slowly pulled the old element toward me. It seemed to catch on something in the back of the oven on the other side of the oven wall, so a jiggled the old element a little and it came out towards me with a mechanical connector and a wire attached at both ends of the element. I slipped the connctors off of the element and attached the connectors to the new element. Carefully slide the new element back through the holes and put the screws back in the small plates attached to the element. Went down stairs and turned the breaker back on. Turned oven on and it heated up even quicker than the old element.

Oven bake element broke in half and wouldn't heat

First I fliped the curcuit breaker to eleminate power to the stove. Then removed the 2 screws that hold the element in place. Then carefully pull the element out and disconnect. Installed new element to connectors and gently pushed back into the stove housing. Secured with the removed screws and turned back on the curcuit breaker. Turned on the oven and it worked like a charm..
