First I removed the screws and popped off the existing element. One of the wires "disappeared" back into the insulation, so I had to remove the back panel of the oven to access that wire and push it back through the opening. Then I attached the new element to the wires and replaced the finishing screws.

First I turned off breaker, pulled out oven unplugged/or dissconnected electricity to oven, unscrewed broken element in oven, unscrewed back panel of oven to disconnect 2 wires from element, and replaced with new element, then repeated the above in reverse.
Very easy for a typical DYI person.

We ordered the part, it arrived quickly my husband removed the burnt out element. We took the back off the stove in order to install the new part. It was easier to connect from the back than reach in to the oven. An easy repair and the stove works fine now.

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.

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.

One of the two wires slipped back into the void space.

I ended up having to re-move the back panel on the stove to access one of the wires, so that I could pull the hot wire back through the inside of the oven. The connection to the bake element was then made simple and easy. My time lost was removing the back panel and re-installation. I can not complain about the repair problem. I saved at least a couple hundred bucks. So that's my story. Thanks for the response in expediting my order of the exact bake element.

I too made the mistake of cleaning the oven with the shelves in place. It doesn't really harm them...but they turn a tarnished brown color...they look dirty. These replacement shelves were a perfect match. Pricing was reasonable, communication was terrific and shipping was super fast. Happy camper here :-)

Replacing the backing element in our oven.

The element ignited and burnt like a sparkler. I unscrewed the bolt/screws holding it in, and pulled like I had on older models. The clips holding it didn't come undone, but the wires hit the side causing a huge flash. It was still hot, even though it wasn't turned on. You need to unplug the oven, or turn off the breaker. I unplugged and took the back panel running down the middle off (4 screws), and undid the clips. Putting the new one back in was easy. Insert the element ends through their places inside the oven. Screw them in place. Hook the wire clips on in back, and replace the back panel. Installation took less than 5 minutes.

Burned lower heating element

Being that the rest of the stove was functioning fine, it was still plugged into the electrical outlet, after unplugging the range, I used a nutdriver and and removed the back panel exposing the two electrical clips on the old heating element. After unplugging the two electrical clips, I removed the two screws that secure the heating element to the back of the inside of the range. Once the screws were removed, the heating element came right out. I inserted the new element, installed the two screws previously removed, plugged the two electrical clips on the back of the heating element, re installed the back panel, plugged the range in and cooked lasagna. Total repair time was 12 minutes.
