It was great to read the other comments about replacing the element part. When I pulled out the wire others said they pull back in to the insulation and you can loose them. So when the yellow wires came out after getting the screws loose I put those potato chip clips on the wires so they would not pull back in and get lost. I certainly didn't want to pull the oven out and go in from the rear. I turned the main breaker off before attempting anything. The screws would not budge till I sprayed them with the WD40. I am a woman and did this with the help of my 19 yr. old son. The hardest part was removing the screws. Removed the racks and took off the door. This made it easier to reach the screws. It was very easy to replace once we got the old one removed. The part arrived in 3 days from ordering. Excellent customer service. Will use again.
