Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The hidden bake element and bake element circuit can be tested for resistance from the power board or at the bake element from behind the range where the hidden bake element leads are found.  The bake element leads will be near the bottom of the range and not mid way up. Mid way up is the convection fan and convection fan element. Judging by the image, the bake element leads will be over on the lower right rear area behind the range. Look for two Red wires.

There will be two red wires connected to the hidden bake element. If the bake element is bad, then it will need to come out from the side and you will need to take the left side panel off the way it looks. If two red wires and the bake element leads are at the back, then the element will come out from the rear. It may have cover that will need to be removed on order to remove the element.

There is a Red wire connected to terminal T3-2 and another Red wire connected to terminal T1B-2 at the power board. These two wires can be disconnected from the power board and then with an Ohm meter, place on meter lead on the wire that was connected to T1B-2 and the other meter lead on the wire that was connected to T3-2. The Ohm meter should measure resistance/continuity if the bake element and circuit is Okay. I added an image below of the wiring diagram and I circled the two wires that will need to be disconnected from the power board for the bake circuit. If the bake circuit shows open/no continuity, the bake element has likely failed. If it does measure continuity/resistance, the power board is most likely faulty. The board is likely located behind the range. There is likely a cover over the power board that will need to come off to access the power board.

NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.  

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

UPDATE and request for help. The wire connected to T1B-2 traced back to the Broil element, and the wire connected to T1A-2 traced back to the Bake element. Apparently this wiring defect was from the factory as the back of the stove has never been removed berfore. This may have also been the cause of our oven always being 25-50 degrees low. I finally found the bake element (had to remove the top and right side panel) to get to the connections. The bake element connections are rusted and test open. The connectors are on the opposite side than I anticipated (on the right looking at the stove from the front). I still need help in gaining access to the element to replace it. The only possible way I can see is to completely remove the warmer drawer and its housing, then remove the bottom of the oven housing. This seems a little too envolved a process to just replace the bake element. Please advise.

Terry; I added a link to a previous answer that may help. We have very limited info of your specific model for instructions for accessing and removing the bake element. If you located the bake element, is there a panel covering the bake element that will need to be removed before it can be slid out? It may have metal tabs on the sheet metal that will need to be broken in order to remove the cover and access the bake element. If you could take a picture of the element leads it may help us determine it it has the metal panel covering the bake element or not. I also added an image of the wiring diagram if needed again. The link below may also have some useful information. Copy and paste the URL below in your browser. http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/289860-whrilpool-electric-range-model-gr-448-lxpt-2

Mark, Lyle's answer is not complete since I have removed 2 of the screws plate that holds the element but I cannot locate the 3 screw that is suposed to be in the back of the stove. I can jiggle the element but cannot remove it. This is a Whirlpool Electric Range Model # GR 448 LXPT2, the Sears the element part number is # 9755770 or Substitute # W10308474. Do I have to remove another aluminum panel in the back of the stove that protects all the electrical wiring to get to the 3rd screw? Please help. Thanks

A:

Thank you for the reply. Looking at the parts break down, you have to remove the back panel to access the wires to the element. Once you remove the wires look for a screw that secures the element around the terminals. Due to the limited amount of service information on this model, you will need to rely on your personal observation to remove the element. If you happen to have a digital camera please reply below with images of the back and side of the range with the panels removed. With those images, we should be able to see how it is removed. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

Once you remove that side panel, you should see 2 screws holding the element in place and one more screw to the right at the rear that secures that plate that hides the element. Those are the screws that need to be removed so that you can pull that element out. I am not sure which screw that you are referring to that is giving you the trouble. That parts list diagram is somewhat confusing compared to the actual configuration of the element and the fasteners. Try removing the 3 screws that I described above and then see if you can carefully pull that element out. NOTE: You should have the range unplugged when performing this repair. You can check that element for continuity using a volt ohm meter before pulling it all of the way out. Here is a link for a video that shows how to test that element with a volt/ohm meter: Bake and Broil Element Testing . I mention this test because it could prevent you from replacing the element if it is actually still okay.

I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and a digital picture of the problem that you are having with the removal of that element.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician replace that element, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
