I had previously removed the element so I began by installing the new element. The wire connectors, did not fit as tightly as they did on the old element due to a slightly different shape on the element. Therefore, I had to take some needle-nosed pliers in order to bend the oven's wire connectors and make them fit tighter. Once that was done I struggled a bit to slip the connectors onto the new element but finally got them on.

There is also a 208V element available for this oven but after calling the web site's phone number was advised that the 208v is for an apartment-type oven and that the 240V is appropriate.

Everything works well!
