Overall the repair wasn't all that difficult.....other than in my situation the new part comes with a "female" modular plug, and my range has a "female" reciever plug. These of course won't connect. I had to cut both mod plugs off, strip both ends of each wire, and wire wrap using the porcelain wire wrap caps that came with my part. This repair would have been MUCH MORE difficult had the porcelain wire wraps not been included. The "fine print" does tell you that you may have to do this "STEP" but I didn't read that the first time I tried to do the repair. Fortunately after re-reading the paperwork I read what had to be done in my situation. This simply lenghtened the time involved and added a couple steps. You need to be comfortable stripping wires in order to complete the repair in this manner. DO NOT USE PLASTIC NUT WIRE WRAPS.....this area, though protected can still heat up. Plastic and higher heat are not a good combination. The plastic wire wrap could melt. USE (if they are included) the porcelean wraps or go buy them if you need to.
