The range is in my rental property and that's how my tenants explained what happened. The repair was easy just unscrew the plate on the rear of the oven. pull the old element out exposing the connectors. Disconnect the old and connect the new, screw the new plate back in. But of course that's not the way mine went. I forgot to turn the breaker off and so when I pulled the old element out I touched it to the back wall of the oven causing a large spark and burning one of the connectors off. So I had to make a trip to Ace and buy a new connector replace the broken one then install the new element. I also replaced the knobs on the range top because some were broken and some were missing.The old ones just pop off and the new ones pop on.
