Step 1. Turn off the breaker to the range. Step 2. Pull the range out from the wall. Many of the installation instructions recommend accessing the element from the front only and to use clips to keep the wires from popping back into the insulation. My recommendation is to just pull the range out and take off the back cover. This is much easier than worrying about losing the wires. The connectors will be easy to access from the rear. You know you need to clean behind your range anyways. Step 3. Remove the back cover of the range. Step 4. Disconnect the two wires that are attached to the lower element. Step 5. From inside the oven remove the two screws holding the element and remove the element. Step 6. Insert the new element and reinstall the two screws to secure it. Step 7. From the back of the range reconnect the two wires to the element. Step 8. Reinstall the back cover. Step 9. Turn the breaker back on. Step 10. Test the new element.
