Above all else it is imperative that the circuit breaker to the oven be turned off so that no current is flowing to the appliance. Two screws at the base of the heating element need to be removed at which point you can simply pull the element out. Carefully pull the electrical connections off and remove the broken heating element and replace it with the new one. Reinstall the screws. Turn the power back on and allow the element to heat until the oil that was applied to it at the factory burns away as a vapor in a few minutes. You're done!!!
