Repair was easy. 1. Turn off the electric to range. 2. very carefully remove the door(makes it real easy to access inside the oven.) 3. remove the 2 screws but be careful. 4. remove the two push on teminals. 5. The wires are very very short so they snapped back into the back of unit. 6. pulled out range and took off the 5 screws holding the small metal piece protecting all electrical wires...7. found the two terminal wires and push them on new terminal leads. 8. screwed the elements two screws back in, 9. replaced the small back with the 5 screws. 10. cleaned the floor behind the range and pushed it back in place.... DONE.... element works fine...tested it. however not cooking with oven today with temps outside at 104-105 ...will wait till it gets a little cooler... but all in all it was a piece of cake.....
