    Pull the electrical cord from the wall - remove the rear power cord panel - slide new element into position - re-attach the two (2) screws that hold the element inside the oven - re-connect the red wires to each of the elements connections pushing in firmly - replace power cord panel - plug ranger back in and test on bake and broil.

Electric range heating elements don't work at all for "bake" function, but "broil" function works (top element) & stovetop works.

The bake (bottom) element has probably burnt out. It's very easy and inexpensive to change them.

First order a new one. Get the range model number and search Google for the element part number. You will get a number of appliance parts suppliers. Check a couple of them for prices and record the part number. (A few suppliers use private part numbers. Most use the manufacturer's part number which will be the one which appears most frequently.)

You could then order from the least expensive supplier, but don't do so. Now search Amazon and eBay for that part number. You will find the part for less than half the price. Order one.

When it arrives, do this:
  1. Unplug the range or make SURE it is turned off.
  2. Remove the old element. It will be held in place with a single Phillips head screw or a hex-head screw. Use the right sized screwdriver or nut driver or socket-wrench as appropriate. The screw will be tight after years of baking. After removing the screw, pull and wiggle the element until it comes unplugged.
  3. Push the new element into the socket and secure it with the screw.
Turn on the oven and let it heat for 5-10 minutes before baking to burn off the bad-smelling coating on the new element.

Appliance Repair Meridian - Oven Bake Element Replacement

Oven Bake elements are relatively easy to replace but there are extra precautions that need to be taken. Do not touch, reposition, or remove element without unplugging the appliance. On some ranges there is always L2-120V that is live - not switched in but there constantly. If you happen to touch the element, if it's broken, you can become enlightened very quickly.

Anyway, on with the replacment. Remove two screws from the inside back wall to release back element. Carefully and patiently, work the back element towards you to expose the wire terminals. Disconnect wire terminals and install in reverse order.

My electric oven heats to maximum when set on maximum but on other settings does n't heat up at all

When on Maximum a lot of electric ovens turn on both the broil and bake elements. When you turn on bake and it doesn't work then more than likely the bake element is bad. If you have a volt-ohm meter handy, unplug the oven from power. Remove the back panel. You should see the two wires connection to the bake element. No need to remove them at this time. Set your meter to ohms (horseshoe symbol) and place the meter probes as follows, one on the left and the other on the right metal part of the connectors for the element. The meter should read a fairly low resistance around 16 ohms if the element is good. If it is a high reading then the element is bad. As an example you can also check the broil element in the same manner and the resistance in ohms should be low, in the 16 ohm range. A new element can be ordered online by looking up the Make and model number for your oven. If you need one quicker, Home Depot and Lowes often carry "universal" elements. Disconnecting the connections and removing the two screws inside the oven that hold it in place will allow you to pull it out toward the front. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Oven heats slowly, bake element has been replaced

Yes, it is very possible that when the bake element burned out, it may have shorted out to the case of the oven, and burned up the relay on the control board. If you have a voltmeter (and feel comfortable in doing this), remove the back of the oven, and measure the voltage across the bake elements when you set the oven to some bake temperature. Be careful, you are dealing with 240 volts AC here! IF you don't have any voltage anywhere near 240 V while on bake, then you probably have a bad electronic oven control. If you have just 120 volts, then check your voltage at your power cord or (better) at the junction box at the back of the range. You should have 120 volts from the center (white or green) wire to either the red or black wire; and 240 volts from the red to the black wire. Now IF you have 240 volts across the terminals of the bake element, then you may have gotten the wrong bake element (wrong wattage - lower watts than the original). Maybe you ordered the wrong one, or maybe they put the wrong one in the box.

Wiring that leads to bake element on Electric Range is not long enough to fit through the slot in the back of the oven.

thats why electricians carry long wires and junction boxes of all sorts in their trucks

a solution's is to use a junction connection box and add a new length of wire to the oven side

All bake elements are not the same. The part # for your bake element is #9758519. Hopefully you can find an appliance parts store in your area. Thay are fairly ease to replace. With the oven UNPLUGGED, Remove the two screws holding the element in and there should only be two wires connected to the element.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

The baking element isn't working.

You can replace the element. The element should just plug in to the oven. You might have to remove a few bolts that hold the element in place. Get the model number of your range and call your local appliance stores, or order it online. Unplug the old element and plug in the new element.

Bake element does not heat up

The tech is right if he used his electical tester to test the ERC. Reliable parts at 1-800-666-0313 for your new control, however I strongly recommend you have the technician order it and do the install as the parts houses will not warrantee an electrical part sold to a customer once it is installed. It is warranteed through the technician and he can get another ERC if the new one is bad or he will absorb the loss if he misdiagnosed the repair. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.
