Just checked my mother-in-law's oven today per your suggestion. The oven only has a top element - assuming its a dual bake/broil element. When I set the oven to broil on HI - the element got hot right away. However, when I set the oven to bake at 400 degrees - the element lost its heat and did not feel as hot as it was on the broil setting and after 20min the oven only reached 185 degrees. Does the element need to be replaced?
It appears that the hidden lower element was not heating so I ordered the WPW10276482 per your suggestion and I just recieved it. The element came with no instructions. Where can I get a detailed and graphic instructions on replacing the bake element - especially since it hidden. How do I remove the metal panel to access the hidden bake element?
