Bake Element wouldn't heat up to temperature

I had viewed the video link on PartsSelect. I removed 2 screws and proceeded to pull element out to disconnect wire connectors. However one side the wire connected was melted on to the contact tab of the element and the wire was broken off. I proceeded to remove back panel from stove and located the exposed broken wire. I stripped back wire and installed a new wire connector that I had in my tool box. I fed wire through small hole. Then I re-installed back panel. I then connected wires to the new bake element and installed element mounting screws.

Very simple fix--unpugged two fittings in the back of oven plugged in the new element and it was done.The Best part was that the element burned out on a Sunday and I ordered the part that day and it shipped on Monday and received part on Wed AM.This is the second time I've had to replace the element and by ordering through Part Select I saved $24.00 versus buying it from an appliance store.

****Threw the breaker switch for the oven to the 'off' position****. Opened the oven. Unscrewed the phillips head screws at the back of the old element. Removed the connecting wire, taping them to the stove so that they wouldn't recede into the hole. Securely attached the connecting wires to the new element. Pushed the wires back into the holes in the stove. Removed the tape from the oven. Screwed the element into place. ****Threw the breaker switch back to the 'on' position****. Process took under 10 minutes.

DO NOT FORGET TO UNPLUG OR TURN OFF BREAKER BEFORE DOING ANYTHING WITH THE WIRES. Don't forget to turn it back on again when you are done.
