After determining that the baking element was not working, I ordered a replacement. It arrived the next day and I drove to my mother in laws ( who owned the electric range). I used a flashlight to see what tools would be required. I used a nutdriver and a pair of needle nosed pliers. I unplugged the stove from the 220 volt receptacle and unscrewed the fasteners holding the element to the back of the stove. I used the pliers to gently pull the wire clip off the element stud and replaced the old element with the new one. I re-attached the wires and secured the element back with the fasteners. I plugged the stove back in, turned the oven on and problem solved. The element turned cherry red, and after closing the oven door, I set the temp to 250 degrees and after about 10 minutes, I opened the door, and the element had shut itself off after reaching the desired temperature.
It was so easy of a repair, that my wife could have done it with no problems and she is not a "repair" person.
Excellent product and excellent time on the shipping.
