I cleaned the knobs and the numbers came off leaving me in a state of panic as I had no idea that would happen and could not even estimate the temperature.

Just took them out of the package removed the old ones and attached the new ones. I cut out a picture of the knob when the accident occurred, who would guess cleaning the knobs would erase the numbers, and taped the picture above the knob until the new ones arrived. thank you for keeping the old knobs in stock,

The replacement switch was slightly larger than the old one so it would not go through the hole in the front panel so I had to get a reaming tool and enlarge the hole just a little for the switch to go through. It was still an easy repair as I had the proper tool.

Removed burnt bulb. On replacing the bulb I glued the bracket, retainer gasket and bulb cover together- I used only a small amount of glue-just enough to hold the three items together. You need to do this since the three items slip in your hand while you attempt to screw the bracket to the oven wall. Need my help, email me @ Lexidog999@tx.rr.com

Determining the correct bake element to order was the most difficult part. Once I received the part, it took me 2 minutes to unscrew the back panel, detach the wires, connect the new wires and re-connect the back pannel - turned the oven on to test - and we were all set just in time for Chistmas baking.

This was an easy thing to do. Take the two screws off the back, pull the wires out, pull off the connectors, get the new element, replace the connectors, make a hole in the insulation, fish the wires back behind the insulation, screw the mounting screws and turn it on. The only thing I did extra is clean the bottom of the oven because with the element out, it's easy to do.

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.
