Replaced both the baking element and the broiler element. The baking element was the only one burned out, but my wife insisted on replacing both since the oven was 20 years old. I cut the power to the oven by turning off the breaker first. I then used a nut driver to remove the two screws holding the baking element in, pulled out he element to get to the two wires attached & used the nut driver to remove the two screws holding the wires. Removed the old element & attached the wires to the new element, slid the element back into place & replaced the two screws, done! Did basically the same procedure to replace the broiler element, except I found that a striaight screwdriver worked better on the screws for it. Also, it helps to remove one screw from the support bracket for the broiler element & swing it out of the way. The only difficulty was having to work over the open oven door, however, it only took me about twenty minutes to replace both elements. Turned the breaker back on & oven works like a charm!
