Shut power off to stove. Removed two screws with a 1/4" nut driver. Extracted the old element. Discovered one of the two solderless connections was not connected. Pulled the stove out and removed the back panel, only 4 screws, and exposed the wiring to the element. Discovered a wire connection had burned out. This was most likely due to a loose connection. I installed the new element and made the good connection. After cleaning up the burnt wire end on the other wire, I installed a new crimp terminal and connected it to the element. These crimp connections need to be tight. Replaced back panel and plugged stove back in and tested it. All worked fine. Put stove back in place. About 30 minutes. I am an electrician but do not normally do appliances. Good luck.
