I removed the two screws that hold the element, then I took the back cover of the range to have access to the wires, after that, I took the old one out, placed the new one and finally hooked the wires and placed the two screws right back. Very easy. I thought about bringing someone to do the job, and after I was done, I couldn't believe how easy it was.

First cut the power at the breaker and then removed the rear panel of the range. Then removed the two retaninig screws in the oven and then unplugged the old element in the back. Cleaned out the molten metal and remains of dinner and installed new element same way the old one came out and voila, oven is back in operation.

Took out the nuts that held the old element, removed it, put
in new element with tightened nuts...and it didn't work.
We took off the plate on the back of the stove, found the
element contacts protruding through, attached them to the
wire connectors that were close by, and it DID work. We were thankful it turned out to be easy!

Oven hearting element melted in half

I had read some of the other comments about the repairs. The one that I found most useful was the one describing how short the connector was once they are removed. That isn't a joke about 3/4". My sujestion is to have tape and tape them to the back of the oven so as to not to loose them in the insulation. Once that was removed and reconnected the oven worked again like new. Even the most novice of people will find it a breeze.

Bake element Burnt Out and Needed Replacement

I am a recently divorced mom who is too proud to ask for help. When I received the part I took the time to read all of the previous posts. I did exactly as many people suggested: pull the oven out, unplug, clean up since you're back there anyway, used the nut driver to remove the metal plate in back and unscrew the two in the oven, carefully unclipped the electodes from the old element with the needle nose, remove the old element, insert the new element, reinsert the electodes , tighten all nut both in the oven and the large metal plate in back , plug back in, push the oven back in place. I reset the clock and also did what one person mentioned which was to turn the oven on and let heat up for about 20 minutes to burn off any of the manufacture coatings that were on the new element. This did not even take me 15 minutes! I was so proud of myself, I told anyone who would listen! Thank you to all of the men and women who took the time to detail what to do, you made my first repair as a single mom awesome!!

1ST..Cut power at circuit breaker.
2ND..Using nut driver, remove two sheet metal nuts.
3RD..Gently tilt element upward and pull out until wire connectors show. There are two wires with flat connectors, use the vise grips to hold the wires so they don't slip back behind the wall of the oven, if they do, you will have to pull out the range from the wall and retrieve them! ( I used two surgical hemostats for this.)
4TH..disconnect the old element, connect the new one....
5TH..Gently slide element back in place, replace sheet metal nuts.
6TH..reset circuit breaker

First, the part was an EXACT fit - what a relief. Thanks PartSelect! Teh oven door had to be taken apart a bit, but once I found the right nut wrench, it went smoothly. Having another set of hands really helped.
