Product Description

Lower Bake Element Specifications

At the floor of the oven is the bake element. If your oven is electric, the bake element will likely provide 90 percent of the heat for baking. Therefore, the oven will not heat properly if the baking element is faulty. If you can see that the element has been damaged, separated, or blistered, you will need to replace the part. If there is no visible damage, turn the oven on and check to see if the element heats evenly. If the element is not heating evenly, or if it is not heating at all, it will need to be replaced. This element is 19 inches wide x 20 inches long (including 5-inch-long terminals).

Bottom heat element burned out.
Husband took old one out and put new one in. Did not have to pull stove out. Be sure and disconnect the power at the electric box. Only 2 screws holding the element in. Easy fix, just wish they would last longer.

Burned out lower bake element
Watched a utube video on replacing element on my model range. Found my Phillips screwdriver. An electric drill would have been a bonus but not necessary. Pulled out range, pulled out plug, removed 1 screw from the lower back cover, disconnected the 2 wires, went to the front and removed oven door and racks, unscrewed 2 screws holding the element. Put new element in and reverse dprocess. Test oven. It worked!!

No heat from bottom element
First I disconnected the power! unscrewed the two screws holding element in place disconnected the wire clips from ends of element (be sure to hold them so they don't "retract" into the body of the oven) Connect the wire clips onto the new element and replace into original location and replace the screws. Turn power back on and start cooking again!

Looking to replace this part but considering doing it myself. How hard is it to do
PartSelect logo
Hi Craig, great question! Replacing the lower bake element should not be a difficult installation. After disconnecting the power, you will need to remove the screws that hold the element in place, there should be 2. You can then carefully pull the element out, until the wire terminals are visible. Unplug old element from the wires and plug the new element in. From there you can install the new replacement part. Best of luck with this repair!

Are the "prongs" for the lower baking element on the right or left side? The element in my stove now has "prongs" on the back right side where the element attaches to the stove. The part picture looks as if the "prongs" are on the left side.
For model number JDR8895AAW
PartSelect logo
Hello Judy, Thanks for your question. The prongs are on the right side, from the perspective of where you'd be facing towards the machine plugging the element in. I hope this helps.

July 20, 2017
I mistakenly hit the lower element with my plastic glove and the power in the whole range went out. My husband reset the breaker and it went back off. So we unplugged the stove and after we figured out how to reset it worked fine. Do you think the element is damaged? Will the circuit breaker shut down until we replace the element? Can I turn the breaker on and test the other stove burners if I take the element out? Thanks again
PartSelect logo
Hello Wanda, we would recommend to first check the terminal block to see if anything has been damaged or loosened, especially where the power cord connects. Then you should check the range for shortage using an ohm meter at the terminal block, if the connection is there you will get a reading. If you get a reading you can slowly disconnect components one at a time until the continuity reading disappears. This will mean that the component that you disconnected right before the continuity disappeared is where your problem lies. There should be a wiring diagram that can help you pinpoint the different components and aid in finding the shortage. Please let us know if you have any further questions!

How do i replace the bottom oven bake heat element which i just ordered.
For model number MER6555AAW
PartSelect logo
Hello Mike, thank you for contacting us. You would remove the two screws that hold the element in place. Then pull the element out about 3 inches and disconnect the two wires. If there is a lot of resistance on the wires you can clip them or clamp them so they don't fall back in the holes, then just connect them to the new element and install. Hope this helps!

Why will my lower oven not get as hot as I want it to? Whats wrong?
PartSelect logo
Hi Krista, we recommend testing your oven sensor with a multi-meter tool, it should read 1090 ohms of resistance at room temperature. If this test goes well you should test your bake element for continuity. If that also goes well, based on your symptoms, you have a faulty control board on your range. I hope this helps!

For model number part # WP7406P-60

Hello Joe, Thank you for the question. Yes, you will need to pull the appliance out and remove the back panel to locate the wire. Hope this helps!

I need a new lower element in my Jenn Air dual fuel double oven. According to what I see on your website, I think part # ps11744518 is what I need. However, I am wondering if the measurements given in your product description will work. The current element that needs replaced is 16" from back to front (starting where it is mounted) and 19" from side to side. There is 2" between the 2 element plugs.
For model number JDR8895AAS
PartSelect logo
Hello Marla, Thank you for contacting us. We have researched the model you have provided and have found the part you are looking for is PartSelect Number: PS11744518 for the Lower Oven Bake Element. It is best to go by the part number and model number and not the dimensions as we are going by a 1" grid and it is a estimate. The model number can guarantee the correct part. We hope this helps!

For the bake element, can I flip it over from what is shown in the picture?
For model number MER6751AAB
PartSelect logo
Hello Robert, Thanks for your question. You will need to align the bake element with the connectors in the back of your oven. They are likely on the right side. I hope this helps.

The lower element burnt out (broke) ordered replacement ps11744518. Replacement seemed to go fine but the new element will not heat. It very slowly warms to 305 degrees and goes no farther. Do you have any suggestions?
For model number JDR8895AAW
PartSelect logo
Hello John, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the Long Oven Sensor, PartSelect Number PS1570174. This long oven sensor is also commonly known as a temperature sensor. It is designed for use with ovens and ranges. It is similar to a thermostat; it measures and regulates the internal temperature of your oven cavity.Testing the temperature sensor probe on your oven is easy. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1080 – 1090 ohms at room temperature. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!
