Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.

 

Can you tell me is this a gas oven? Also can you get me the full model number? Thanks, Bryan

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
The label on the back of the oven kists the model/serial # XXXXX MER6741BAB. It is an electric oven.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
Okay great that's it, can you tell me can you see the bottom element in the oven on this one? The reason I ask this is because some of these are hidden elements, is yours visible from inside the oven? You are going to need to replace this, but we have to know if yours is a hidden element, the diagrams are not really clear on this, let me know, thanks, Bryan

The element is not getting red at all...I will make sure the power is shut off at the circuit breaker. Is it easy to unhook the old element and plug in the new one?
