Pull the range out from the wall and unplug it. Open oven door and remove philips screws holding the element in place (in back of oven). Remove the back cover removing philips screws holding it on. Find the wires connected to element (element is now loose) and remove wires (pull off). Go back to the inside of the oven and remove two philips screws holding the bracket on the top inside of the oven that is holding the heating element. When I removed these screws I found that I was not able to reinstall the screws due to metal fatigue. I had to cut two pieces of metal, drill small holes in them, remove the two screws holding the stove top (at the front of the range) in place. I then pulled the stove top forward and up. I had to cut two small holes in the insulation to find where the screw holes were. Then I reassembled the bracket and heating element put the screws one at a time up through the holes in the top inside of the oven, lined up the metal pieces that I had cut and tightened the screws. If I had not had to do this it would have been a 10 minute job. Then you just reinstall the screws in the back of the oven that hold the heating element to the back of the oven. Reconnect the wires in the back and reinstall the back plate of the stove. Plug in the range and all is better.
