Went down stairs and turned the breaker for the oven off. Opened the oven door, took a phillips head wrench and took two screws out of the back of the oven that held the element in place. Slowly pulled the old element toward me. It seemed to catch on something in the back of the oven on the other side of the oven wall, so a jiggled the old element a little and it came out towards me with a mechanical connector and a wire attached at both ends of the element. I slipped the connctors off of the element and attached the connectors to the new element. Carefully slide the new element back through the holes and put the screws back in the small plates attached to the element. Went down stairs and turned the breaker back on. Turned oven on and it heated up even quicker than the old element.
