Question and Answers

Q:

Element replacement part for electric range cooktop

A:

That replacement part 8523697 is the correct element to replace the left rear burner. The white plastic piece in the center should stay in place. Here is a link for a brief repair video that shows how to replace that type of element: Large Element Replacement . That repair video shows the type of replacement element that you are describing (with the plastic piece in the center holding the limiter).

I hope that this information helps. I understand your apprehension about installing the element with that center piece in place. The video shows that the holder is a component that needs to stay in place while installing that type of element.
