1. Disconnected power by turning off the 50 A breaker at the breaker panel 2. Confirmed that power was off (no lights on - on the oven anywhere) 3. Removed the screws from the mounting plates below the old element. I used a Phillips screwdriver. 4. Pulled out the old element. 5. Disconnected the wires - they have lugs on them. 6. Made sure that the wires did NOT slip back into the back wall of the oven. Be careful with this. 7. Installed wires with lugs on new element. 8. Pushed element back into the back of the oven. Made sure that wires were not crimped on a piece of the oven wall. 9. Replaced the screws and tightened them. I used a Phillips screwdriver. 10. Turned the power back on at the breaker panel and checked for proper operation. I put the old element in the box that the new element came in and threw it away. *Done!*
