First thing I tripped the range breaker. Pulled the range out from the wall and unpluged main plug. I then removed the 12 sheet metal screws from the back lower cover.
I then unpluged the wires from the four element connections and marked the color on the range back.Two upper blue and red and two lower yellow and red. I then tested the resistance of the elements to confirm that they were bad. With volt/ ohm meter set for OHM'S I had no reading.
When my new parts arrived I first made sure that they matched the origonals. I tested the OHM'S on the new parts and began the change.
I removed the two upper element holding screws on the inside rear wall. I then removed the two hanging support screws from the inside top of the oven. For the oven element, simply remove the one screw at the back wall.
Reassembly is reverse of removal.
The element ends will stick out the back side of the range about one inch.Be sure that insulation is in place and that there is no contact between element ends and metal walls.Attatch the wires as you had them marked on the back. Replace the rear cover and tighten all the screws. Plug main plug back into socket. Reset breaker and slowley turn oven control up to a low temperature setting.After a few minuets the oven indicator light will go out.Open oven and check the temperature.
End cap has three screws to remove. Slip off old cap and replace with new one. Snug the three screws. Push the range back in place.
Have the wife back some cookies and enjoy.
