I purchased broiler element Y04000048 for my freestanding Admiral range 666-ESAW. The replacement part is identical to the old one. I see that I can replace the wires in the same positions as they were on the old one. But an instruction sheet that came with the part confuses me. It says: "It is necessary to use the enclosed ground screws (2) for mounting the element to assure a proper ground. The ground wire .... attached to the ground lug of the element is no longer required and should be removed." My questions: 1) I assume the ground wire is the one furthest from the brass lug. The ground is the leftmost terminal as seen facing an installed element. Is that right? 2) What does "remove" mean? Can I just re-install the ground wire on the new element as it was on the old and then use the two screws provided for the mounting plate? Or.... do I have to somehow physically remove and/or terminate the old ground wire? 3) I'm also assuming that the two new screws go in the mounting plate at the back of the oven and that somehow this is sufficient to ground the element. Is that correct? Thanks in advance for your help. Paul

First, it is about the electrical broil element, Part AP4283351. Second, it is about the electrical connections to the broil element, specifically about attaching the two wires with the loop on the end (not the push on electrical connectors). These electrical connections attach with a screw. Where do they attach on the replacement electrical broil element that pro appliance parts sent me recently? That is the question I need answered. You responded with “Hello Paul. You are describing the broil element support AP4047846. This part has been discontinued by the manufacture and is no longer available. Hope this helps.” This response missed the question I was asking. Here is my original message from yesterday. Can you help me with my need? “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.”
