The repair was easy. I turned off the power to the oven at he curcuit breaker. Using a phillips screwdriver, I removed the 2 screws that held on the old heating element. One screw came off easily. The other screw required a little WD-40 and alot of force, but I was able to get it off. I then removed the 2 wires from the terminals on the old element. Again, it required a little force and wiggling of the contact.

Reversing the process, I slid the contacts onto the terminals of the new heating element. Then, I screwed the backplate of the new heating element in place at the back of the oven with the 2 screws I had previously removed. I then restored power at the circuit breaker. The whole job took less then 10 minutes.
