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.

This oven is 2 years old and the element should not have broken like it did. GE is doing something wrong in the making of their ovens.

I shut off power at electrical box.
Then I removed 4 screws on back to expose connector enclosed in insulation.. It was not necessary as when I removed 2 screws in oven and pulled element out , the element came out far enough to disconnect easily and slip the element into electrical unit.
15 minutes start to finish..

My baking element burned out after being exposed to grease and other remnants of past feasts. After some research the repair seemed straight forward so I figured I'd give it a shot. Overall it's fairly simple, though there are some things to watch out for.

I didn't remove my oven's door, which restricted my movement somewhat. After removing the bolts I was able to easily remove the old heating element and expose the two connecting wires. One wire had much more slack than the other. I connected the wire with more slack first. However, I'm somewhat uncoordinated and doing so caused the other wire to retract within the unit. I had to pull out my stove and remove the back panel, which was easy. The retracted wire was easy to find, but there was no slack available through the back access either. I actually had to unscrew the wire from the thing that is connected to the wire that plugs in to the outlet first. Doing so gave me enough slack to connect the heating element to the second wire. After that I just reconnected the wire to the outlet connection and put the back panel back on!

About 45 minutes in total time. Most of which was figuring out the approach to getting enough slack to connect the second wire and working around the oven door which restricted my movement.
