This was a truly simple repair. (Thank you engineers!) Moving the range away from the cabinets/wall and unplugging the 240V power to the range allows the repair to be safely completed. Two simple nuts held the heating element to the back oven wall, and two additional nuts connected the wires to the heating element. (The original equipment used nuts, so a nut driver was needed; whereas the replacement part came with screws so a standard screwdriver was used.) Once the connections were reconnected and attached to the back wall of the oven, the power was reconnected and the range was put back into its spot. I tested the heating element by setting the oven to 350 degrees and allowing it to completely preheat. Done!
