very easy repair took less than 5 minutes removed racks from oven and used a number 2 phillips head screwdriver to remove the 2 screws pulled element out detached the 2 wires and removed element reattached wires to new element pushed element back in and reinstalled the screws.done note* i found this to be a good time to clean the oven so the night before part was to arrive i sprayed a good coat of oven cleaner on the 3 sides and lower part of oven after removing element it made it very easy to clean the oven up.
