At the floor of your electric oven is the bake element. This partially open-style element comes with push-on terminals. The bake element will likely provide most of the heat for baking. Therefore, if the oven is not heating properly, or if food is burnt on top and undercooked below, your bake element may be at fault. If you can see that the element has been separated or blistered, you should replace the part immediately. 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, use a multi-meter to test for electrical continuity to see if the element needs replacing.

This part works with the following brands: Kenmore, General Electric, Hotpoint.

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

This part fixes the following symptoms:

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

No oven heat.

I repair tools for a living. I have thirty years experience fixing messed up equipment. When I initially looked a the problem, I thought maybe I had a loose lug underneath the top stove panel because I fixed a problem with the stove about five years ago with a lug falling off the clean switch located in the back. When I saw that there was no issue with this I inspected the oven element and could see that this was what was wrong all bubbled up etc. So I went to the website, long story short used the website application to find my parts and come to find out the wrong parts arrived. I called customer service and the lady fixed up everything in a matter of minutes. I should have called them in the first place. Anyway, all and all I have a new stove now for the most part. I cleaned it all up and installed the new parts that customer service sent, and its all good.

Heating element shorting out-sparking

I turned off electric to the stove. In the oven, I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. After unpacking the new element, I placed it in the bottom of the oven, reconnected the two wires, and gently fed the wires back into the back of the oven. I then secured the new unit to the oven wall with the two screws.

Burned out

My dealer was unable to find the part even with a model number. Your accurate drawings allowed me to select correct part. It was a perfect replacement in every way and cheaper (by $10) than the dealer. Also quicker.

Lower bake element shorted out.

1st, Turn off the stove at the electrical box. 2nd, Remove the oven door by opening it to the first stop, and then pulled it straight up. 3rd, Remove the 2 screws using a 1/4" nut driver. 4th Pull the old heating element straight out, until the two wires that attach to the element are out 3" from rear oven wall. (Note: Place a peace of tape around each wire before disconnecting from the element. this will keep the wires from falling back through the holes). Remove the wires from the old element and remove the old element. 4th Place the new element into the oven, place the wires onto the new element. Then reverse the order of removal for new element install, for the repair. Less than 10 minutes.

The oven heating element broke in two.

Rating: 5 Stars!! We cut the power, removed two screws disconnected the two wires (just pulled them out of the covers) from the old element and pushed in the new ones. It didn't take longer than 10 minutes!

This is the first time it's been as easy as promised! Great customer service in addition to easy and reasonable prices!
Thank you,

20 year old oven bake element became brittle and pieces broke off, overheated and partially melted, one side touching bottom of oven, caused very slow heatup.

Removed nuts holding element to rear of oven using nut driver, pulled wires out 3 inches and disconnected using needle nose pliers, installed new element. Job took 10 minutes - very easy job and works fine.

A simple repair and a bit of advice...

I really like my repairman, but prefer to do it myself. PartSelect rocks...reasonable prices, really fast shipping AND online repair videos keep me coming back. The repair was exactly as the video described, but one of the wires came loose as I was pulling the element through. I thought I'd have to tear the stove apart to get to it, but luckily, all of the wiring is contained in a raceway that runs along the back of the stove. After removing it to expose the wires, I would recommend doing so instead of trying to pull the wires through as the video shows. In doing so, the terminal connections are readily accessible and it's much easier to remove and install the bake element without having to worry about feeding the wires through at the same time and running the risk of damaging them. Overall, a very simple, quick repair that saved me a $50-75 service call.

Element not working

You literally saved our Christmas from a disaster! Four days before Christmas our bake element gave out and we discovered it had split. We found you on the Internet, ordered the part, and prayed you would deliver as promised. We received it the next day, as promised, and in time to cook Christmas dinner. It was a snap to install, literally took five minutes. Your service, response time and instructions were perfect. Keep up the good work!

A few days before christmas, my lower oven heat element went out.

I went on-line, found Partselect.com, they gave me the part number, showed me a video on the repair details, shipped the part overnight, and within ten minutes of the arrival of the part, I was up and running. EXCELLENT SERVICE! Thanks for saving Christmas at our house!!
