I first killed the power to the oven by switching off the circuit breaker and then unplugging it from the wall. With the oven pulled out, I removed the back cover panel to disconnect the lower (bake) element power leads from the broken element. I removed the two screws on the metal plate that attached the element unit to the oven and removed the whole bake element assembly from the oven. I then inserted the new element assembly into the oven and reattached the screws. The next step was to reattach the power leads to the new element. It was then time to put the back cover panel back on and plug the oven back in. I then pushed the oven back into place and switched the circuit breaker back on. Finally, I tested the new element to see if it operated properly by setting a temperature and observed the temperature on a separate oven thermometer used for baking. Your exploded views of the oven helped me plan and execute this repair. Good feature that would be even better if the resolution was a bit better.
