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.

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:

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!

Oven wouldn't heat

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches AND UNFORTUNATELY I DID NOT TURN OFF THE BREAKER TO THE OVEN AND THE LIVE WIRE TOUCHED THE SIDE OF THE OVEN AND A WHITE SPARK/EXPLOSION SCARED ME. LUCKY TO BE ALIVE AS I HAD NEARLY CRAWLED INTO THE OVEN WHILE DOING THIS. ALWAYS TURN OF THE BREAKER!!!!
