First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. Then I pulled the element out about 2 inches & disconnected the two wires, Then I removed the ground wire. I then wired in the new element ( this was the only tough part of the process, because I had a very tight space to work in- less than 2 inches.

My 8 inch stove top element would not heat

I first replaced the element and the receiver. This required splicing lines which was very easy. It still did not heat (even though my element indicator light was on) so I replaced the switch regulator. This took a little time because of the small space on my model. In fact, I had to replace a wire that had shorted by splicing a 3 inch section into it. When that was done, I simply re-connected the 5 wires in the original positions and reattached the cover. It works like a charm and my wife is delighted because we are hosting a family reunion/baby shower tomorrow!

I turned off the power first. Then I removed the element by taking out the three screws. The oven was quite old so getting the screws out took a little extra effort. Installation of the new element went easier. I was pleased with how soon the part arrived after I ordered it.

Pulled out the old one-couldn't find it ANYWHERE that was a comparable match except for partselect. shut off breaker to oven-put in the new one-hard to reach in due to limited space and hard to see due to sticking your head in an oven.used a mirror/flashlight to see behind element to unscrew and screw it back in.Other than space restriction and light-pretty easy. Works great! Thanks for HAVING the part!! :)
