Using a nut driver, remove the back panel of the oven. Remove the electrical connections from the elements.

The Bake element has two Philips head screws at the back of the oven, the Broil element has one screw at the back of the oven and two on top of the oven near the front. Remove the screws.

The element then falls out very easily. The new element has to be pushed gently through the insulation on the back of the oven, but this was not a problem.

One issue: make sure that the Broil element is "right side up." The screw on the back of the unit is below the electrical connections.

Replace the screws, reconnect the electrical connections, and test the oven. If everything works, replace the back panel.

Total time from turning the first screw to the last was roughly 30 minutes.
