I first turn off the 220 power braker to the electric stove. Making sure the stove and element is very cool.

I then removed the two screws that hold the lower baking element in place. Pull gently on the element not to break the wires from the wall of the stove (about 3 to 4 inches).

I than unscrewed the right and left wire attached to the element with the nut driver. (This old element was attached with small nut screws. The new one has screws that use a screw driver). Keeping the wires apart, I removed the old element and replace it with the new element part.

In replacing the new element, facing the stove I connected the black wires to the left side (my left hand) and the white wire to the right side (my right hand) with the new screws using a screw driver. REMEMBER TO REPLACE THE WIRES BACK THE WAY THEY CAME OFF WHEN THE STOVE WAS WORKING PROPERTLY. Attach the element back to the stove and turn the breaker on. Easy to do job.
