First, we ordered the part on Sunday afternoon online. It was here by Tuesday morning. We unplugged the oven and removed the screws holding the element in place and the electrical contacts. That was the toughest part because it's hard to get in the oven and they were baked on pretty well. We had to drill holes in the bake element. Be careful not to drill them too big, so the screw will fit snug and make contact. We screwed the bake element to the contacts, then back to the over, plugged it in and turned it on. The temperature is more constant and steady than ever, and the oven heats much faster. We were impressed and happy to avoid replacing the whole stove.
