This model has a hidden bake element located under the oven cavity. This is either accessable by a removable panel in the bottom of the oven or must be accesed from the back of the stove by removing the back panel and several screws. A diagram of the oven etc should be shown at either the searspartsdirect.com or appliancepartspros.com

How do you remove the moulded Hidden Bake Element from the inside whirlpool ceramic range accubake system


first, remove power from the unit before doing ANYTHING! second, remove the back cover of the machine, this will expose another smaller panel with 4-6 screws in it running along the bottom edge across the back. after removing the screws you will have to gently BEND the panel down until you can see the wiring leading to the hidden bake element. cut the insulation covering the back of the element... be sure new element is placed in the exact location of the old one to avoid shorting the bake terminals to the metal cover, then reverse the removal process...

Gr673lxss 1 how to find hidden bake element


Kyle,
Usually what they mean by "hidden" element means that the bake element sits in a recessed part of the oven cavity. You only have one bake element and one broil element in the oven. Hope this helps.

How do I check heating elements?


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. ( by placing the each of the meter prongs on each end of the heater element connectors) If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.
