1.Turn off breaker to stove. Remove 1 hex nut from each side of lower heat (bake) element.
2.Gently pull entire element out to expose electric cable (may only come out 2 or 3") and gently but firmly remove each element tab from each wire. NOTE: If open oven door and remove it it is easier to work.
3. Before purchasing the element, I tested to be sure power was full 220v that was feeding the element. If it is not your problem is elsewhere. To do this I attached a voltage tester to ends of electric cable and turned bake control to ON being absolutely sure no contact is being made by the wires to to the stove. This test also offers someassurance that your control panel is functioning.
4.Ordered part online and unbelieveably had it in 2 days.
5. Plugged each end of element stab tab back into wires. BE CAREFUL not to bend the element tab WHEN PUSHING IT BACK ON WIRES. Gentluy push element ends back into rear of stove.
5.Replace both hex nuts.
6.Turn bake element on to test. Should glow almost immediately.
7.Replace door if removed.
8. Write yourself a check for $125.00
