A few days before CHristmas. Baking element breaks. No pies! Oh no. I read earlier installation stories and decided I could do it myself. I ordered the part, which arrived in 3 days - still time for pies! I flipped the circuit breaker (no need to add myself to the holiday light display), removed the little holding plate in the back of the oven using a small ratchet/socket, pulled the wires off the ends of the old element using a small pliers, being careful not to let the wires slip back into the hole (there's not a lot of play in those wires, so using a hairclip or other clip on the little wires while you are inserting the new element might be helpful.) I carefully attached the wires to the new element, pushing the assembly back into the hole. After tightening the screws on the holding plate, I flipped the breaker on - and the family enjoyed fresh pumpkin pies for the holidays! Total time for the repair - less than 15 minutes. Honest. It was easy! Thanks, PartSelect!
