The next four elements in our sweet sixteen are from Frigidaire (now an Electrolux company). Frigidaire is still selling quite a few ranges in the US and they are mainly using an affordable element design.
We used to call this first element the Dolly Parton bake unit. I’m not sure why, but Frigidaire decided to angle the bends more so that name doesn’t make any sense (it’s more like the Madonna element now). Replacement for Bake element # 5303051519. The 1/4″ spades where the wires plug on the end of this element are bent upwards at a 90 degree angle.
The next element on our list looks very similar to the 5303051519 bake unit but the ends where the wires plug on are different. The replacement for the 316075104 bake element has 1/4″ spade ends that are vertical and go straight toward the back of the oven. This might not seem like a big difference but even a small change where the wires plug on can cause disaster. No part of the naked wire or element or terminal should ever touch any part of the oven body.
Our next bake element is an extra wide unit (19.75 inches wide) – replacement for bake element 318255006. This bake element also has 1/4″ terminals with a 90 degree bend up.
If you happen to have an older Frigidaire range (perhaps one made back in the old General Motors era) that is not quite wide enough to cook a super huge pizza, you might just be using our next element- coming in at just under 13 inches wide, the narrow replacement for 5309950887 bake element.
