I killed the circuit breaker to the oven, then double checked with an electrical tester. I removed the oven door for easy access, unscrewed the element bracket screws, plugged in the new element and then I reversed the steps above.

I am very happy with PartSelect and will use them in the future for all my appliance parts needs.

the plastic pin that retains the spring has a head on one end that hits a plastic stop on the door to keep it from coming out. I used a small grinder and made a flat spot on the head diameter to make it easy to slide out. This is easier than trying to pry the door off the pin at the two retaing snaps. I was conderned these pin retainer clips were brittle and would break off.
Once the pin is slid out, it is a matter to hold the new spring holes in line with the pin. rotate pin so flat side you ground is turned up, so pin will not move out that way. Tiij about an hour

The part came as promised & and it was exactly the right part! I turned off the breaker to the oven (the oven has a clock and timer on it too). Unscrewed the 2 screws with a Phillips screw-driver and carefully removed the old part - being very careful to be safe and not make a big mess. It was easy to disconnect the wires and get the old element out. Then connected the wires to the new element, placed into position, screwed in the 2 screws, and turned on the breaker. It worked great. Then set the clock because it was 13 minutes slow!
