First , I have been working on electrical equipment for many years....and I forgot to un plug the unit from the wall. I assumed that if the oven was turned off I could remove the element, WRONG. One of the leads from the cord is wired directly to one lead of the element. When I tried to remove the element it shorted out against the wall of the oven. Then I turned the breaker off, unplugged the stove and finished the repair in about 10 minutes. Always unplug it first!.
