Element, Broil, Part AP4283351. We bought our oven in Oct. 1994. The replacement element I ordered from you has an extra sheet metal brace with a threaded screw hole connecting the middle two of the four rods, near where the wires connect. This is visible on the parts diagram.
In the original installation, the two wires with a loop on the end that connect with a screw are both screwed together onto the brass colored connector that is bent at a right angle.
Here are my questions.
With the replacement element, does one of the wires with the loop on the end screw onto the brass colored connector, as in the original installation, and the second wire with a loop on the end screw into the threaded screw hole on the sheet metal brace connecting the middle two of the four rods? I think this is what I am reading on the instruction sheet, but I am not sure. A diagram would be very helpful here.
Or, do both wires with a loop on the end screw onto the brass colored connector that is bent at a right angle as in the original connection? In this case the sheet metal connector for the two middle rods is just there for structural stability.
Also, are the two wires with a loop on the end that connect with a screw the ground wires?
Any help you can give me would be appreciated.
