After 12 years the element died for the 2nd time We thought about getting a new oven, but ours has become sort of "retro" looking. I think it's from the '60s. We looked on line and found the part at a reasonable price and decided to give it a try.

I first went to the breaker box and shut off the power to the oven.
Then I pulled the 2 screws from the back of the oven that held the element in and pulled off the clips and removed the old element.
My wife decided to give the old oven a good cleaning with a non-fuming cleanser while I went out to play golf.
When I came home she had applied the 2 clips to the new element and fastened it in with the 2 screws. (I love it when women use tools!)
The oven now looks and works like new!
