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...
Hello. Your oven has the hidden bake element. Are you SURE it's the problem--Many things can mimic a bad element. A thermal fuse might have opened, the main oven control board might have a stuck relay that turns on the bake element. TURN OFF THE POWER NOW. To *verify* that the element is indeed bad, you will have to pull the oven out and remove the back cover. Near the bottom you should see the 2 wires connected to the terminals at the end of the element. *Carefully* remove one of the connectors(it doesn't matter which one) and, using a VOM(digital volt meter) set to continuity(it beeps when the leads are shorted together), put each lead on a terminal of the bake element. If the element is good, your meter will beep(there is almost no resistance in the element). If you hear nothing, it means that the element has opened somewhere(just like a broken wire). At this point I highly recommend getting a pro to further troubleshoot the unit. If the element has opened, it can be really tricky to remove and then insert a new one--depending on the model oven you have.
Your lower element may be burned out. Generally you can firmly grasp and pull it out. Take it to a repair shop and get a replacement unit. Then simply snap it back into the same outlet where you remove the first one. It sound as if you've tried everything else so it must be the unit that is bad.
If the part that is not heating is only the bottom element, and the top element is heating regularly, then you may need to replace the lower element. Before replacement the element can be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms at the element terminals, with a multimeter set at Rx1. Disconnect power before removing the element.
If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature instead, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.
If it is fan assisted, and the fan is working o/k, then the chances are it is the element.
This is usually located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.
Normally a straightforward repair

TUTORIALS1, If the fan motorin the back of the oven is going round and
the temperature light is on (normally little red light), but there is no heat
then you will probably need a new oven element, these are generally very easy
to fit and readily available from our website these can be tested with a
electric meter. To gain access to the element you will
have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will see
the fan and element, if you
look closely at the elementyou will
probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however
there is no evidence of a fault but the elementis open circuit ie:
broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Some
elements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nuts
from the rear of the machine. 2, If your fan oven is getting warm but takes a very long time to
cook or is burning the food more on one side than the other, then you need to
check if your oven fan motoris working you will
see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motoris not blowing the heat into the oven then
you need To replace the oven fan motoris a little more
expensive and a bit more involved. 3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heating
and burning everything then you will need to replace youroven thermostat 4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if youroven is not working at all ie: no heat
and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timerinto AUTO mode,
simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.
Turn the power OFF to the oven. Remove the oven racks. Unscrew the element where it enters the back wall of the oven from inside the oven. Carefully pull the element leads out of their respective holes. Carefully because the wires will be short. Remove the wires from the element terminals. Place the wires on the replacement element. Reinsert the terminals into the holes and replace the mounting screws. Turn the power back on and bake me a dozen cookies.
