The bottom heating element needs replacing. The element is not exposed, how is it removed?
Answer Hello Harry. You will need to pull the unit out and remove the back panel. Now you will see where the bake element W10276482 is mounted. Remove the wires and the screws and pull the unit out of the back of the oven. Install the new element in reverse order. Hope this helps.
The lower element is enclosed, how do you replace it?
Answer Hello Harold. This is a simple repair. First, Turn off the breaker because the elements always have 120Vac floating on them and will be an electrical shock hazard. Now, to ease the repair, remove the racks from the bake compartment. At the bottom in the rear of the bake compartment, you will notice two screws, one on each end of the element. Remove these screws and gently pull the element from toward you. This is done gently because if the wires are pulled off they can go back into the holes and require the removal of the oven rear panel to retrieve them. Remove the wires one at a time, hooking them to the new element as they are removed so as not to allow them to ever lay loose. Once both wires are on the new element, slide it back in so the screws can be reinstalled. Reinstall your racks and your ready to turn the breaker back on and bake! I hope this helps!

I've ordered a new broiler element for my range. How do I replace it? Please give me a detailed description. Thank you.
Answer Hello Tommi. For the broil element W10310249, you will disconnect the power to the unit, and remove the screws securing the bracket and the element in the back wall. This is easier if you remove the oven racks. Then you will remove the element from the unit and remove the wires going to the element. Reinstall in reverse order with the new element. The bake element 74010750 is installed the same way, but does not use a bracket to secure it. Hope this helps.
How do I disconennet the bake element part in order to connet a replacement if the tip (or one of the ends) of bake element burnt out?
Answer Hi Val. remove all power. Take the door off. Slide the drawer off (if equipped). Pull The unit out. Unhook the cord. Remove the back assy. Unhook the 2-wires on the element. Go to the front oven cavity area. Remove the racks. Remove the 2 -phillips screws that are inside the cavity holding the element screws in and pull out the element. Replace the element and put the screws in place. Go to the back of the unit and before hooking the wires, make sure the insulation covers the holes that the element went through so the heat dont escape and burn wires. The bake element is part # 74010750. Thank You.
