So i have an older Frid range with the red glowing heat elements, the front right is a dual element, only the outer ring works. Pretty sure my Ohm meter show the inner as bad. Ordered new element per model number. The element looks different at the wire hookups. Two small spade connectors at thermostat. Same LG at other terminals. Hooked it up and nothing works just the indicator lite. Is there a wiring difference on the new element? Did not come with new wiring diagram.

Robert? Where do you buy your appliance parts at?

Here's the right front burner for your model:

Here's the video that shows how you install it:

APCO it a dual burner. All the terminals are in the same positions, just different spade terminal sizes which pribably means a different wiring sequence. Not just plug n play i guess?

The terminals should be exactly the same as the old one. Yes, plug and play.

Is the part number you got the same as I posted above?

Tried the plug n play. No heat in center or outer ring, the element in lite came on only.

That's not the correct burner part number for the right front burner.

Go back to APCO and tell them you need the one I posted the link to above.
