The replacement baking element looks different than my old one, do i need to move brackets over to new one or are there some instructions on how to install the replacement

Will a bad oven sensor cause the oven to take an extremely long time to reach selected temperature, and cause food not to cook thoroughly (on the bottom) when the oven says it has reached temperature? If not,can you possibly suggest a cause?
For model number WFE714HLAS0
Hi Terrence , Thank you for the question. Yes the Oven Sensor can cause this.I suggest testing the sensor to see if it is defective.Testing the temperature sensor probe on your oven is easy. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1080 – 1090 ohms at room temperature. Hope this helps!

I need the lower baking element. The diagram image looks different from the part in my oven. The lower and upper elements connect to the back in the "center" of the oven wall. The parts diagram shows them with an offset to the lower left side.
For model number WFE540H0AS0
Hi Kevin, Thank you for your question. This would be the correct bake element for your appliance. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

How do I know if I need a new sensor or a new baking element? Oven takes a long time to reach the temperature desired. Once it does, the food is uncooked on the bottom of the pan and overcooked on the top of the pan.
For model number MER8674AW0
Hello Carrie, Thanks for your question. Your issue is more likely due to the sensor, but we would recommend using a multi-meter to test both the sensor and the bake element, and replacing either if they are not showing continuity. I hope this helps.

I have Maytag model mer8674ab0 oven that needs a replacement heat element which is under a heat cover. It has a two pronged sections that fits into the bottom middle of the back of the oven. What element is compatible? It is square shaped. The one in the diagram for the oven has the prongs on the left. That is wrong. I need a middle pronged piece. Which do you recommend.

I replaced the thermal fuse-thermostat, checked the heating sensor and it was in range for ohms 1085. Both top and bottom element still will not heat. I checked the wiring harness and there is no burnt or loose wires. Trying to figure out the next step?
For model number MER8674AWO
Hello Keith, thank you for your question. Since the sensor is testing within range and there are no burnt or broken wires on the elements the electronic control board would have to be replaced, Part Number: PS11756979. Good luck with your repair!

    Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
    The oven would take an hour to preheat.
    First, we turned on broil and the upper element turned orange and obviously worked. We figured the bottom element went out. The diagram on this site showed a bottom heating element that looked nothing like ours, but after reading other reviews, and reading that part that goes through the back of the oven was in the middle, and not off to the side, we ordered this element. It was perfect. All you have to do is unplug the oven, take out the bottom pan covering the element by removing 2 screws in the back, remove the lower small cover on the back of the oven and then unplug the old element, unscrew the old element on the inside of the stove, then install the new element and put everything back like it was. Nothing to it. It worked like a charm and my oven now heats up fast again. Easiest appliance repair job ever!

    Bake element wasn’t heating properly.
    I watched a video on google on how to replace the element and then looked on the internet to order the element. When the part arrived, I pulled the range out and unplugged it. Then I watched the video again and followed the techs instructions to remove the element and replaced it with the new one. It’s a very simple process that I think almost anyone can do . The online videos make the job easier because they show exactly the order of disassembly and assembly, and Part Select helped with finding the right part and shipping it in a timely manner. Thank you!

    Oven would not heat
    Opened the breaker for the oven. Verified the power was off. Removed the racks from the oven. Using a screw driver removed two screws in the back of the oven holding down the steam bake bottom of the oven, pulled up from the back to get the pan out. Removed the screw holding the front of the element in place. Removed the screw in the shiny metal of the element at the back. Gingerly pulled the element to the front and as the element stopped slightly turned the element to let the prints come out. That part was challenging to get the angle right so not to damage the wires. Using a small Phillips screw driver I pushed in on the connector latch on the terminal and then pulled the terminals off the element one at a time. Follow all the steps in reverse to install the new one.

    The oven's lower heating element needed replacement
    Watched the video and realized this was something I could do myself...bear in mind I'm not exactly a handyman! Took me about 30min as the oven also needed some cleaning...my tenant definitely needs to use the self-cleaning!

    I have to note, although the heating element was covered by Maytag's 10yr limited parts warranty, I decided to purchase from PartSelect since Maytag could not provide a ship date and I couldn't keep my tenant waiting! Supposedly Maytag had the part in stock but their warehouse was behind because of the pandemic...what a lame excuse! Almost a month later, Maytag has yet to ship the part! Needless to say, am very disappointed in Maytag's after sales and warranty program! I get the impression, they just wanted to pressure me to buy the new part!

    Lastly, was very pleased and impressed by PartSelect's customer service! Their website was very easy to use, less expensive than buying direct from Maytag and the part was shipped same day! Thank you PartSelect!

    Bake element not working
    I pulled the range out from the wall, then unplugged it from the wall outlet. I removed the oven door & set it aside. Removed the screws covering the rear wiring shield, then disconnected the 2 leads from the bake element. Unscrewed the screws holding the oven floor pan, then unscrewed the screws holding in the original element. Replaced it, screwed everything back together, and pushed the oven back against the wall. Took me about 30 minutes, and now the oven works as well as it did when we first bought it.
