A little background story: One day after cooking up some chicken I noticed a bright blue light coming from the bake element. I turned off the oven, but the blue light remained and was getting brighter. Come to find out the bake element had more or less welded itself in half and what I saw was electricity arcing between the two halves of the baking element. I had to unplug the range to stop the arc. Luckily fixing it was as easy as unscrewing the old one (held in with one philips screw on each side), popping the connected wires off (they just slide on and off of connecting tabs), and doing the reverse for installation. Super easy job.
