First removed the wires with a flat head screw driver then removed the screw that holds the fuse in place with a socket wrench. I then replaced the fuse in reverse order. The thermostat was a little bit harder to reach but I removed the wires with a flat head screw drive then removed the two screws that hold it in place. I placed the new thermostate and did the procedure in reverse. I have to say this company gets the product to the consumer in very quick manner. I order the part on Tuesday and had it by Thursday morning before lunch. I highly recommend this company. As far a fixing the problem figured out it was the heating element, so I ordered it on Wednesday had it by Thursday at noon. I was a little more difficulty to replace but was simple after I got started. First I removed the bracket holding the front of the element (2) screws, unscrewed the single screw holding the element in place. Pulled out the element, cleaned out the lint and undid the wiring. Placed the new element in reverse order and had heat. It works great, heating like it was new. Saved me over 600.00 for a new one and I spend a little less than 100.00 dollars for the repair and a little of my tme.
