Our older range burnt out the 8 inch surface burner element and connector. I already had a spare connector from an earlier repair but needed a new element. I researched and picked out this 2600 watt element instead of a lower 2100 watt element. The element came in a ziplock type bag. Not exactly sealed but it was new. I washed the new element to minimize the burning of fumes from a brand new element. Turned on the vent fant, hooked it up and turned on the heat. The element smoked a little bit but that quickly stopped.

One thing I noticed was the most inner ring did not appear to sit flush/flat along with the rest of the rings. It was raised higher than the rest of the rings. I had thought about exchanging it because I was worried about our pots and pans not being flat on the element during cooking. I compared our other existing elements and they have flat surfaces on the rings. So it looks like with use, the rings flatten with heat. I decided to use it the way it is, after a day or two, the rings of the element now are all flat.

There is a stamping under that show it is 2600 watt for 240 v, but I don't see any country of origin. Our existing element are made in US. My guess is this new one is from China, but I can't confirm it.

UPDATE 01/03/2014: IMPORTANT READ! Initial rating for this element was 5 stars, now it is one star because it exploded. A section glowed bright white, started sparking and exploded. Fire alarm went off. We were very fortunate that no one sustained injuries. The parts of the element that sparked, flew a short distance causing very minor stain to the range top, a couple pots sitting on the other unused elements. The pot that was on this element was a Corning ware glass pot (I think it's no longer made).

5/16/2014 This is ANOTHER update, yes, it exploded AGAIN after only 2 months! Burnt the newly replaced control switch due to last explosion. And you wonder why I bought it again, I was trying not to!!! Yet this seller is all over the place on the internet, this time I got the item from eBay instead of Amazon, the seller has a different name on eBay, but when I received the item, it was shipped from Amazon using Amazon's packaging and an Amazon order number that I never placed. The lesson learned? - Go to Lowes and pay $35, if it explodes, at least you can take it back to Lowes. READ the other 1 star ratings and stay away from this item/seller!

I initially gave it a 5 star, but after using it for 2 months, the element exploded while cooking yesterday, damaged my pot, dripping pan, and the control switch. I saw the other 1 star rating here, we had the same experience! This is a fire hazard and Amazon should do something about the seller and this product before someone gets hurt!

This is the larger sized burner. I ordered 2, and it seems to be working good so far. I've been using it for couple months now.

It's been a pain for a while with the inconsistent heat from the Whirlpool stove. My landlord sent a mechanic twice and he just couldn't "fix" it. Sparks and smoke came out from the burner adapter occasionally and there was no tolerance of fire risk at all then. I then decided to purchase the burner and rewire kit out my pocket to replace it. Takes only $30 and 10 minutes, works like new. Cooking is a joyful work again. The replacing is very simple and needs no professional tools. Just make sure the stove is unplugged before working.
One thing needs to be aware of is the bad odor when you first turn the burner on. I believe it's from the coating of the burner and it's toxic. I had the windows of my kitchen open, set the burner at mid-heat for about 5 minutes until the smoke and odor was totally gone. Then I turned it to high-heat to make sure it functions as well. Now it heats up in a very short time and the heat is very consistent.

Works okay. Nothing to get excited about.
Not convinced this is to manufacturer's specifications. Heating element not as robust as the element it replaced - narrower gauge material. Might be the reason one reviewer noted this product exploded (twice). We'll see.

My burners have been a pain in the butt for months now. I bought only one of these to make sure it was a good fit for my ancient Whirlpool stove. Fits perfectly and for about 60% less then what the hardware store wants for this same part. I will be placing an order for three more! As a previous reviewer said they will smoke for about 5 minutes when you turn them on for the first time.

UPDATE: Just over 3 months later I noticed a burning plastic smell last night when I turned the burner on. I asked my husband if he had spilled anything on the burner. He denied it, but I was pretty certain that it was probably just something that needed to burn off. This morning the burner won't turn on at all. Pulled it out and melted! Near the connection it melted! Guess you get what you pay for. I'll be headed to Lowe's tonight to pay out the nose for one that will last longer then a few months.

I have tried at least two other burners, which never worked. This burner worked as if it was the original burner.
