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.

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 oven lower electric element

It's a straightforward remove and replace with two screws. The lower element is most likely to go with years of baking when bake pans overflow on to the element, It can be checked with an electrical probe for resistance and continuity. If the oven is preheating and the lower element doesn't heat that is definitive. We had it checked under the extended warranty but the tech wasn't thorough enough. The extended warranty is of questional value.

Lower bake heating element burned out.

I removed the two screws retaining the heating element with a phillips head screw driver. Then I pulled the element forward to expose the wire connectors, and disconnected the two wires. I connected the two wires to the new heating element, and secured the new heating element with the two screws.

Lower element burnt out.

This was really easy. I took out the lower oven racks. Most important - Turned off the breaker to the stove. Unscrewed the element and popped it out. Put in the new one and screwed it back in. Turned on the breaker and I was ready to go.

Lower bake element burned out

thank you everyone here for your posts which gave me the confidence to try this myself. Could not have been easier and I have zero DIY talents. Just as other have described, unplug oven, unscrew plate holding element, slip wires off of old and onto new and reattach. Perfect!

Lower oven heating element burned through because of corn muffin mix falling on element

Turned off oven power. Using a Phillips head screw driver I removed the two screws holding the lower element in place from inside the oven. Slowly pulled the element toward me. Met with some resistance because of the oven insullation. The end of the element has two sliding clips that you pull off. Remove the clips, remove the old element and replace with the new one then reverse the procedure.

Lower element burned out

This element went out way to soon for a Maytag. As we are 75 miles from the nearest repair shop it was not cost effective to pay for a service call and the charge to repair. So even though the part was supposed to be under warranty we decided it would be better to order and my husband put in the part. Part is in with ease and my oven is back working.

The element on lower oven split

First we turned off the circuit breaker. Then we removed the oven door. Unscrewed the plate of the broken element and removed from the electric plugs.
We attached the new element to the electric plugs, screwed the plate into the oven. Turned on the circuit and I was back to baking Christmas cookies.
It was as easy as everyone else said it would be. It took about 5 min.
