Question about Whirlpool GY396 Electric Kitchen Range
I am working on a Whirlpool electric oven with a hidden bake element I need to replace it but have no Ideal how to get in to it Model number GR563LXSB1
In addition to what aborcass stated, I just had to fix the same problem. Remeber to turn off the power before you do this. On my stove the element acess is behind the side panel (right side when facing the stove). You remove two screws on the back and one underneath at the bottom, (you need to pull out the drawer). Once screws are out, slide the side panel forward gently about an inch and it should just drop off.
You should see the wires for the element level with the bottom of the stove. The wires will guide you to the element. And you should see that the element is screwed in with two screws to the stove. This is the tricky bit, to remove the element follow the metal piece holding the element to the right until you see a third screw. Remove this screw and the whole thing will come out. Take off the wires, replace the element on the metal strip, slide the element and metal strip back into the stove (take care to ensure the left side of the metal strip slides into the proper position under the metal clasp. Re-attach the screw, plug the wires onto the element and turn the power back on. You should have heat.

You will need to remove form the wall and access from behind, after removing hte back panel you see the 2 wires leading to the elemnt in the bottom right corner of unit, a few screws will remov ehte element form hte uit nad the new one will slide right in, if by some reason its not behind that panel 2 screws will remove the side panel and gain access form there
