I replaced my Beaumark element with a generic model listed at 3000W
The one I actually needed was for a self cleaning oven and store listed two in stock on their site, but nothing there
However.  Self clean model was only 2500W

Safe to use the first for self cleaning or play it safe and not

Self clean maybe twice per year

Thanks

If it appears to operate fine i would say it will be fine.. I don't really see the harm in using a 3000w compared to a 2500w element as long as the bake temp reaches desired temp properly

Don't know about the bake temp.  I didn't see any info on the sticker on any wattage of elements and only did a test run to see if it heated up.

I guess that if I set the oven to 350.  It's going to be 350 (and beep to let me know it reached that temp) or food is either going to be or not going to be cooked properly 

Thanks

Yes that is correct it will reach the correct temperature perhaps just a little faster with a 3000w element but it should be ok
