I loosened two screws that held the baking element to the stove and pulled out. Then, with a screwdriver , I took the old wires off and replaced them onto the new Baking Element and reassembled.

It was a very easy task and while I was at it,I replaced the Drip Bowl pans on the top of the stove with Chrome ones.

I ordered the parts on a Tuesday and, to my surprise, I received them on Thursday, and the cost was about half of what it would have cost me elsewhere (to include GE Parts Warehouse)

I highly recommend partselect to all of you that need inexpensive repairs.
