how do you install the bake element?
Answer Disconnect power. Remove the 2 mounting screws holding the element to the back wall. Slowly pull the element out until you can get to the wire terminals. Unplug the wires from the old element. Plug the wires onto the new element. Re-install the element to the back wall. Re-connect power and test. You're done, Thanks!

I need to replace the Oven Bake Element of an older Whirlpool Selfcleaning Oven. Unfortunately, even with the help of your Model Number Locator, I was not able to find the oven's model #.
However, on the mount bracket between the terminals of the oven bake element, it says, hardly legibly, B G S (or B O S [?]) and, below that:
STILLMAN L 260 AT 308180 FSP 2600W1950W 240V208V.
The shape and dimensions seem the same as those of your item AP3075035 (made by Whirlpool), except that the central part of the sinuating front end is less triangular and more rounded. Since the part is compatible with 2600W / 240V, like your AP 3075035, I assume it would be ok. for me to order this item. If not, please let me know by e-mail. Thank you, Chris.
Answer Hello Chris. Yes, according to the part number on the element, this should work for your oven. Hope this helps.

How do I remove, for replacement, the hidden element in my range?
To remove the hidden bake element you will need to pull the unit out and disconnect the power. Remove the rear cover of the range and at the bottom you will see where the terminals for the bake element are located. There should be a cover there that you will remove to get the element out.
