When cooking toast on a cookie sheet under my broiler, I noticed that one side of the pan was not cooking as quickly as the other.

I completed my repair early in the day so that there would be no need to be concerned with any hot parts in the oven. I checked and rechecked that the oven was turned "Off". Then I removed the top rack to give myself room to work in the oven. Next, I unscrewed the screws that were in the "holding clips" that held the back of the element in place. Then I unscrewed the screws that held the element to the top of the oven. I then carefully pulled the element out of the sockets at the back of the oven. Once I noticed how the element was connected to the power, I continued to pull the element and the wiring out of the sockets about 3 inches. I then carefully disconnected the power from each element end by gently sliding the connector off the end of the element. As I removed each wire connection, I carefully situated the wire so that it didn't slip down its socket. I then removed the "holding clips" from the old element and slid them into place on the new element. I then reconnected the power to the new element. Then I carefully fed the wiring back into the sockets and then reinserted the ends of the element into the sockets. I then screwed the "hanging clips" back into place at the back of the oven. Next, I replaced the screws into the brackets that held the element onto the top of the oven. Once I made sure everything was back as it was, I said a little prayer and then turned on the broiler to see if it worked. And Yeah! It worked and I saved my family budget the price of a service call - and that was probably worth $150.00.
