It was very easy, the element is held in place by a point that protrudes from the element's frame through a hole in the stove top. This hole is located directly across from the electrical socket your bheating element plugs into, under the stove top. Push the heating element in towards the socket and the heating element can now be lifted up and out of the burner tray. Remove the burner's reflector tray. Remove the single screw securing the elements electrical socket to the stove top. Lift the stove top up and secure. Remove socket and cut wires about 4 inces from the old socket. place shrink wrap over each wire and wire nut new socket to existing wires. place shrink wrap over wire nuts and heat to secure. reverse proceedure and test.
