I looked up the part on-line and read previous repair comments on the ease of replacement. I turned off the electric power breaker - selecting the one labeled "50" as suggested by a previous purchaser. The oven light went off immediately. I then made sure I could remove the burned out element before I ordered the replacement. This was a little difficult, as the octagon shaped screw were rusted after 26 years and difficult to remove. I sprayed with WD-40 and followed the directions given by previous repairers. I was quite proud that when the part came a few days later, I was able to install without too much difficulty. Would have been easier if my arms had been longer. This oven located next to wall - set up a little on the high side for this 72 year old 5'2" woman. Good job!!

From inside the oven after turning off the breaker I removed all of the mounting screws with a nutdriver, I removed the wire screws after taping all of the wires together with a small piece of tape to prevent them from falling back into the opening. I installed the wires with the original screws as the provided screws would not fit the holes, tightened them, removed the tape and placed the element back into the opening. I then tightened the hanging brackets, after getting them to align and then tightened the rear mounting bracket. It did help to adjust the baking rack down and leave the baking rack in place to have a place to rest my arms. The install then became a piece of cake!

I turned off power to the oven and used a nut driver to unfasten the heating element from the back of the oven. I pulled it a little bit out, then used a screwdriver to disconnect the wires from the terminals. I used the new screws provided with the new element to connect it to the wires, then screwed it back to the back of the oven. I turned the power back on and tested it. It was easy. No need to replace the oven yet.

Oven door gasket hard, noot sealing

I thought it would be a simple matter of removing the inside glass (4 screws) and replacing the gasket, but it turns out that on this model I had to start on the outside, remove the drawer, then remove the front door cover, then undo a screw which held the inside two-tier glass in place, THEN I could remove the four screws and the interior panel which holds the gasket in place. THIS IS A TWO PERSON JOB unless you choose to use masking tape to hold the exterior door cover in place while removing/replacing the many screws which hold it on. WHILE REPLACING THE INTERIOR COVER WHICH HOLDS THE GASKET IN PLACE, YOU MUST PERIODICALLY STRETCH IT HERE AND THERE TO GET THE "SNAKE" TO EXTEND THE ENTIRE WAY AND TO SEAL TIGHTLY.

Ordered part. Part arrived within 3 days. Went to my nextdoor neighbor and sniveled about "being afraid of electricity." He came over, unscrewed 2 screws, pulled out old element, replaced with new element, gave me a look that said, "must be nice pretending to be a helpless old lady and getting your way all the time." Smiled and went back home. Sure love my neighbor(s)!
