First thing I did was turned off breaker to stove. Then I opened oven door to broil position, pulled the door up at that angle and slid off hinges to make it more accessible to work on. Push door hinges to the closed position for safety purposes(reverse this procedure to install door back later). I then unscrewed the two screws that secure the element to the back wall. At this point I detached support clips and used the element to very carefully pull the wires into the oven. I then used my needle nose pliers to hold each of the spade connectors on the wires and pulled the element from the connectors making sure wires don't fall back into the holes. I replaced support clips and carefully slid element back into position and secured it back to the back wall using the two screws, then attached element to the new support clips. I installed the door back, flipped breaker back on and now my oven has a new broiler element in less than 15 minutes. Thanks PartSelect for the speedy delivery and great price.
