Really easy but in this model there are 2 versions of the sensor, male and female. The website didn't have any place to see that. So the first sensor that came was male but we needed the other. After calling they sent me a return form and sent the new part (which was actually much cheaper) overnight and it went in very quickly. Would check this out again when anything went wrong. they are great folks to work with.

First, turn off power to oven. There are six Phillips head screws on the pan above the element and 2 securing the element to the pan. Remove all screws and pull unit toward you, then slide off electrical wires from the element. To remove the element from the pan use the pliers to bend back metal hooks. Place new element under hooks, bending the metal to hold element in place and replace 2 screws securing the element to the pan. Join wires to element and push unit with wiring back into oven wall. Replace 6 screws holding pan to top of oven, turn on power, and voila!

I ordered new racks to see if they weere out of alignment. The new racks fell from its tracks after the broiler was heated. It seems the oven cabinet is expanding with the heat and the rack width does not compensate for that. The new racks did not solve the problem so I do not know what can be done next. Any shelf support would have to be heat resistent. Replacing the oven cabinet is not a good option and no gauantee it wouldn't continue with this stove.

Removed old assembly, attached wires to new and inserted into space for same. Of course you must turn off the range circuit breaker. The part that took the most time was removing the old assembly. Once that was done, the rest took only a few minutes.
