A replacement is usually around $40. There are usually 2 screws holding the element in the back of the stove. Turn off the power and remove the element. There are usually only 2 wires. It really doesn't matter which goes where. Install the new element and see if it will shut off when oven reachers temp. If it continues to heat, there is another piece that needs to be replaced. If there is a contactor or relay replace it, If not the thermostat needs to be replaced. Sometimes when the element burns out it shorts to the ground and fuses the contacts forcing the element to stay on. Sometimes you actually have to turn off the power to the stove.

SOURCE: Oven heating element
You said, We have an OLD (1950-60) Frigidaire wall oven, model # RBG-94. Bottom heating element has gone out. Oven is still in good shape so we'd like to be able to find an element replacement, but have had no luck finding one.
I am not able to find this part either.
Anywhere. This oven is to old for parts. But most important is that it is causing you high utility rates!
Today's appliances save you the arm and the leg that such an old oven is costing you.
You have no idea how it is sucking your money out of your pocket!
It is unfortunate, that no one told you about this years ago!
You payed for more than one oven with your utility bill if you had it since it was new. My advice is do not put good money into bad!
Shop for a new one and see your bills go down.
my wife was telling me to replace the air and furnace for 7 years and I said, it's not broken. But it was over 20 years old. She was right, cause the new one saved me $100. a month!
That means I threw away $7000. in 6 years with my old world attitude.
Yes I am old fashion and always fix it!
But after 25 years of marriage. i finally realized she is a good evaluator and I was a fool to not appreciate her gift for all these years! And out tons more money than I told you about!
Hope I saved you some bucks with my real life stories!
Don't tell your wife!!!

Hi, Unplug the oven and remove the element to test it. Check the element and see if there is continuity. If the element is open, replace it. It can be bad even tho it doesn't appear bad.
I hope this helps you.
