When the oven was on we noticed the bake element had a 1 inch section that was bright red. Upon closer inspection, after the oven was off and the element cool, corrosion like damage was apparent where the element had been bright red.

Naturally the oven turned was off but for added safety I also set the breaker protecting the oven to the off position. Where the element attaches to the oven there is a small plate with two screws holding the element in position. Remove these two screws and then gently pull the element out 2-3 inches, which will expose the electrical connection. Using needle nose pliers gently pull on one of the wires to remove it from the element. Now remove the other and discard the old element. Simply plug the new element into those wires and screw the plate back into the oven. Now turn the breaker back on and you're done. Super easy!
