First I removed upper front grill by removing two Philips head screws on top and pulling off. This exposed the Philips head screw which holds control panel in place. After removing screw I pushed up on panel and it came off to expose fuse. With needle nose pliers I removed old fuse and again with pliers held new fuse in position. With the help of a bladed screwdriver, I pushed new fuse into holder, then replaced panel, screw and grill. This took less than 15 minutes even as one of the wires on control panel pulled out of connection and took some time to locate where to reconnect, otherwise was an easy fix

After ordering the element, found out it was the wrong element, I needed an 18.5 inch x 15.5 instead of the 15 1/4 x 15 1/2"...I slowly bent the element in shape to fit my oven. It works beautiful.
But for you guys, order the right one. Don't forget to measure your old elements spread from connection to connection. Install the new element and then test to be sure it works proper.

Removed 4 small star head screws from back of microwave, lifted body off, removed blown fuse and replaced with new one (found where cord enters). This model is stainless inside and out and I like it a lot. It is also sold by Daewoo and a few other manufacturers.

Our oven is a wall mounted oven so I could not reach the plugin. Therefore I shut the power off at our breaker box. I then removed the screws that held the old heating element to the oven. Removed the element, slipped connecting wires off of the old element. Next I slipped the connector wires onto the new element and replaced the screws. Turned the power back and and checked to see if oven worked. It did! As you can tell I am a novice at home repair but this worked perfectly!

On the Saturday before Christmas, during some baking, my heating element we out of my oven! Since I was cooking Christmas dinner at my house on Thursday, I freaked out. Fortunately, we got on the interenet, ordered a new element, paid for 2-3 day shipping, and received it on Wed. afternoon. My husband unscrewed the old element, and put the new one in about 5 minutes. Very easy job, and Christmas was a total success!

Check the connectors first and the associated wiring, as our stove had been stricken by lightning a couple of years ago. Seems the stove was fairly new we had a service tech replace the stove top relays to correct the shorted out stove top. Unfortunately no one checked the rest of the stove as the oven elements still functioned. What I realized when the bake element failed was the lead wire to the bake element was actually shorted from the lightning to the stove and the element was damaged but still worked. The lead wire was trimmed back and the connector replaced along with the element. The lightning had damaged the unit and luckily we don't bake much as it actually had soldered the connector to the back of the stove. Lesson learned...if your appliance it struck by lightning remove the back and check to assure your stove will operate safely. Thanks for the prompt shipping as everything is good as new now and we are much safer too.

First I removed the two screws that held the element in place. Then after slightly pulling out the wires, I disconnected the two wires on each side. The new part just snapped into the old wires. I pushed the element back into place, replaced the original two screws to hold it into place, and it was all done! Two screws and two wires...done. It took about 2 minutes and this is something I have NEVER done before. The oven works beautifully now!

The hardest part was taking out original light bulb because screws on shield where hard to unscrew after all this years . The old bulb vent out leaving neck in socket. It took narrow electrical pliers to get neck out .The generic appliance bulb did not fit and had aluminum neck ,not recommended for brass sockets in ovens.Putting new light bulb in was not the problem.
