Remove three screws underneath bottom front edge of the range top. Bewteen the oven door and the range top. Lift rnage top up in frotn and prop up. Remove two screws o the element and replace. Found out the problems was not the element but the control switch. The heating element for the bimetalic control was brokened and not making contact. element was OK. Would advise inspecting and using a DVM to check resistance of the element before purchasiing. By the way I swapped the control switch from another element and found out that they are claibrated to the sixe of the element. You have to purchase the right control switch or the element will not heat correctly.
