Welcome to the forums! We don't know where you are located so we can't even come close to providing adequate information. Where is this grill element? Is it on a stove? What is the brand name and model of the unit to which it is attached. Is it 120 volts, 240 volts, or is it European/Asian/other electrical system?

I found a listing that suggests that your model takes a 2900 watt element.

If you look closely at your old element the specifications should be stamped either on the element support or into the element itself.

Right but did you look at the element rather than what the sticker says.
The stamping on the element would confirm that you have a 2k element.

The specs you show in your previous post shows the stove has a 3.4 kw oven element and a 2.0 kw grill element but only a total load of 3.4 kw.
Something is not quite right with those numbers so I would again suggest you closely look at your old element.

Another possibility is that the element is actually a 2.9 kw element with a 240 rating but the sticker has made an adjustment for the rating of 230 volts that they show.

Remove and check the element.
