Shut off the power at the breakers, then remove the oven door from the hinges (for easier access to the back panel. Loosen the nuts holding the element plate to the back of the oven wall. Pull the faulty element away, carefully so as not to break the wires. Unscrew the electrical wires, noting their positions. Remove the faulty element from the work area. Place the new element into the oven area, attach the wires, push the element plate back in, and screw it back down. Turn the breaker back on. Bake cookies to test. Side note: delivery time from PartSelect was excellent. I went from shorted element to baked goods in just a few days.
