Good morning. I...

Good morning. I replaced the bake element in my Whirlpool oven. When I turned it on, there was a loud pop and a bright white flash from behind the control panel.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is at least 12 years old, and it's an Imperial Series.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I believe that the element I put in was not an exact fit. I think the prongs are too long and it touched the backside and shorted something out. I need to know what to replace and how to get at it. I am going to try and get the correct element today.

Hi. You will need to unplug unit. Remove back covers. Look for any burnt spots. Remove element and tape off wires for element. Plug unit back in and see if control works.
