Really simple. Shut off circuit breaker. Removed 4 counter top screws and slid out the built in stove. Removed 2 screws holding element in oven and removed back cover. Pulled leads off element in back since I couldn't remove from the front then removed element from oven front. Replaced the element and reversed the procedures. For the top burner, I cut the leads about 2 inches from terminal block and removed the screw holding the block. Afer stripping the wires, I used the wire nut supplied and reconnected the terminal block. Replaced the terminal block screw, slid stove back in and reversed removal procedure.
Turned power on and everthing worked. One problem occured with the terminal block; the connecting hole for the screw was 90 degrees off. I had to bend it to a 180 degree configuration for the screw to be installed.
