I ordered the only part that looked like it would fit. First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. But the new replacement had the wrong ends to fit right. I was going to email you back to see if there were other options for me, when a friend came by and said he would just replace the oven connecting ends and then it would work. Luckily he had extra little ends at home, came over and replaced the ends, cutting the old ones off of the oven side. He wire stripped the wire, attached the new ends and crimped and then reattatched the whole heating element. Without his know-how, I would have had to have a repair man come and do the same thing for me, or go buy a new stove.....but it is simple when you know how!! It would have been helpful to me, to have the description of the ends of the new element I was buying..... whether it was male or female... but it is fixed now, thanks to my friend. A steak dinner was cheaper than a repair man!!!!
