First, I unplugged the oven. Then, I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. After that, I gently pulled the element toward the front of the oven until the wires were exposed. I disconnected the wires from the old element, removed the old element and then attached the wires to the new baking element. I gently pushed the new element back into the screw holes and screwed the new element in place. When I plugged the oven back into the wall I heard a pop and thought I'd blown up the oven! Turns out the breaker popped...after fixing the breaker, I turned the oven on and the element worked just fine. I highly recommend PartSelect.com for their fast shipping and great products. I will be ordering from them again for future appliance parts.

First I opened the door to the oven. Then I opened the box that the part came in. (knife) I then slid the oven rack out of the box and unwrapped the plastic, being careful not to bend or scratch the new rack. Now, this is the tricky part... I had to move the existing rack down one space to make room for the new one. Then carefully slid the new rack in, tipping it slightly and sliding it in. LOL

(1) Disassembled range element cartridge unit by removing six machine screws on sides
(2) Removed old element receptacle assembly (note screww attaching the clip to ring was corroded and had to be drilled out and replaced - screw not included), retaining existing element (determined it was good)
(3) Fited up new element receptacle assembly and determined how far the new wires would go, cut the old wires at appropriate point (allowing for wire splice).
(4) Attached new element receptacle assembly using a machine screw I found in my collection
(5) Routed new wires though retaining clips, and spliced into old wires near the cartridge plug (note: be sure to use high temp splice nuts - not supplied in kit)
(6) Installed old element into new receptacle and tested by measuring resistance - element resistance should be about 12 ohms, with all connections to ground reading infinity)
(7) Reassembled cartrige assembly using six machine screws previously removed (note, make sure the part align properly - top inside the bottom)
(8) Put the assembly back on range - worked great!

I looked at the other repair stories on this site & realized it should be simple to do. I first switched off the power at the circuit breaker (range has its own switch). Then used a philips head screw driver to remove the 2 screws that hold the element in place at the back of the oven. Gently pulled the element out. Was able to disconnect the wire on the right side. But the other one would not budge. Thought I would have to get a repair guy out after all. Decided to try again again next day. Put on a pair of leather gloves to get a better grip on the wire (thought pliers might bend the connectors). Was able to wiggle it back & forth & it came loose. Then it was easy to hook up the new one, gently pushing the element connectors into the oven wires & put it back into the oven & replaced the 2 screws holding the element in place. Switched the circuit breaker back on. Turned on the oven and it works like new and no repair person visit!! Thanks for the info at this site.
