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).

This part works with the following brands: Maytag, Kenmore, Jenn-Air, Whirlpool.

This part works with the following products: Range, Wall Oven.

This part fixes the following symptoms:

  • Little to no heat when baking.
  • Element will not heat.
  • Oven not heating evenly.
  • Will Not Start.
  • Oven is too hot.
  • Little to no heat when broiling.

Question:

Looking to replace this part but considering doing it myself. How hard is it to do

Craig
Answer:

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!

Question:

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

Wanda
Answer:

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!

Question:

How do i replace the bottom oven bake heat element which i just ordered.

mike silverman for model number MER6555AAW
Answer:

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!

Question:

Why will my lower oven not get as hot as I want it to? Whats wrong?

Krista
Answer:

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!

Lower bake element burned in two piecies.

First I unpluged the range from the power source. Then I removed the back cover, disconnected the two wires to the element, remover two screws on the inside of the oven the held the element in place and removed it. I then installed the new element in the reverse order. This took about one day to get the new part and 15 to 20 mins to do the repairs. I figured that I saved at least $55 on a repairman service call.

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!

Lower burner element wasn't working

watched how to video so was prepared for a standard install. removed screws and coverplate...disconnected wires...threaded new element thru coverplate...reconnected wires...reinstalled coverplate with screws. disconnecting and reconnecting wires took some thought and patience, but wasn't rocket science.

The lower baking element metal broke so the oven would not heat.

Hiring a repair man was going to be expensive, and I saw the part was cheap and others had said this was an easy job to do. I figured I'd give it a shot even though I have very little experience repairing things and there was no help coming from my husband. I followed the instruction of others, unscrewing two screws and pulling the broken element out. The metal that capped the ends of the broken piece needed to be removed. One came off easily. The other took a bit of wiggling to get off. A mistake I made was, by accident, one of the wires coming from behind the stove got pushed back through the hole in the oven wall.. I needed to fish it out with tweezers, but thankfully, that was easily retrieved. Once I put the caps on the new piece, I had some trouble reaching the plate to screw it back into place. I removed the oven door, which helped a lot, but then found it a little tricky to get the oven door back on. Despite the little set backs, I still did it myself in around 15 minutes. I'm delighted to have my oven back without paying a fortune!

Heating element cracked and no longer worked

This was the easiest repair I have ever done. The element was shipped right away and I received it in about 3 or 4 days. 2 screws were removed and reinserted to replace the heating element.
