I am a recently divorced mom who is too proud to ask for help. When I received the part I took the time to read all of the previous posts. I did exactly as many people suggested: pull the oven out, unplug, clean up since you're back there anyway, used the nut driver to remove the metal plate in back and unscrew the two in the oven, carefully unclipped the electodes from the old element with the needle nose, remove the old element, insert the new element, reinsert the electodes , tighten all nut both in the oven and the large metal plate in back , plug back in, push the oven back in place. I reset the clock and also did what one person mentioned which was to turn the oven on and let heat up for about 20 minutes to burn off any of the manufacture coatings that were on the new element. This did not even take me 15 minutes! I was so proud of myself, I told anyone who would listen! Thank you to all of the men and women who took the time to detail what to do, you made my first repair as a single mom awesome!!
