Nov 17, 2013

Turned circuit breaker off to range as recommneded. Removed 2 screws from old heating element using a nut driver after removing the two racks from inside the oven. Considereing others had noted the wire sometimes came off and had to be retrieved by removing the back panel, I removed the back panel using the nut driver instead of waiting to see if that would happen. I removed the back panel after sliding the range out for easy access. Back panel was removed using the nut driver on approximately five screws that secured the back panel. This step may not have been needed because the wires were secured snug on the heating element. Secured new heating element and back panel. Turned on power after tripping circuit breaker and noticed a bright red hearting element in range within one minute. Real simple repair quickly done minutes after delivery by UPS.
