So, this is an old range...maybe around 1973 or so. The old element is bowtie shaped and has the
following information on the metal plate that holds the contacts: Westinghouse 0147361 2660W 236 V

This element has the contacts close together and they extend through a hinged plate that originally allowed the element to move up and down slightly and the whole thing screws to the back of the oven. The distance between the contacts is 1" and the two screw holes on the plate that attach to the back of the oven wall are just about 3 1/2 inches apart.


I'm not finding any part numbers that come close to this or any reference to this particular range. I'm thinking I'll be replacing this with something that matches the wattage and that mounts the same way, but not sure what that would be. I'd appreciate help finding an appropriate replacement part for this one that has burned completely through.

Thanks!

The most recent number for that element (Q147361) has been 5300207517, but that has long since been discontinued. Aftermarket equiv would be CH641, probably also obsolete, but my notes say a WB44X5099 would be satisfactory and is widely available.
