This was a very easy repair. First unplug the oven. The heating element is on the bottom of the oven. Remove two screws from the back wall of the oven where the element comes throgh the back. Pull the oven out and go to the back. Remove the cover plate from the center of the oven. You can see where the element comes through the back so just unplug the old element and it will slide right out. Slide the new one in and reverse the steps. EASY!

Once I opened up the back of the range, the sensor wires where there and burnt just like your info said. One nut to take off in the oven and the sensor came right out and the new one went right in. The oven works great, cooked the turkey today. The worst part of the repare was the cleaning behind and under the range, it hasn't moved since it was put in 6 years ago. Very pleased with PS.

I unplugged the stove and removed the oven racks. Then I turned on a flashlight and laid it in the oven so I could see. Next, I carefully connected the push on terminals. Then I screwed in the two screws with a nut driver. Finally, I replaced the oven racks and plugged in the stove, and I was finished!
