The meltdown was a spectacular event. After clearing the kitchen of smoke and allowing the oven to cool down. I easily removed the remnents of the old element by removing the screws holding each side in place and disconnected the two wires. I then insulated the hot side wire (red) to prevent the possibility of a short when resetting the breaker in order to use the stove top. The next day I found and ordered the very reasonably priced new part with optional overnight shipping. it arrived at 1:00 pm the following day. Installation was a simple reverse of the removal. The oven works great and I now keep a fire extinguisher in my kitchen.
