First remove the oven racks and the burner cover in the bottom of the oven. There are two phillips screws near the back. Loosen the screws but it is not necessary to completely remove them. Pull out the bottom cover and this will expose the burner. There is one phillips screw at the front of the oven and one at the back. Remove these screws and set aside. You should be able to remove the burner and unplug the wire connected to it. Replace with a new burner in the reverse order. Plug in the wire and make sure the new burner is seated properly over the gas valve. It lines up pretty easily. Put the rear screw back in but be careful not to drop it into the hole otherwise you will have to use a magnet to retrieve it or pull the oven out because it will be on the floor. Replace the front screw and put everything else back together. Pretty easy job
