First, I shut off the power to the oven... no point in risking a nice electric shock. The next thing I realized was I could not see anything... enter the flashlight. Then, well then it was really easy. I removed the two screws that held the element to the back wall of the oven, pulled the element (and some of the insulation stuffing) out about 2 inches to reveal the two wires and their connecting screws. Unscrewed them, put the new element in, reconnected the wiring, restuffed the stuffing and reattached it to the oven wall. Turned on the power and she heated up faster than ever. Speaking of fast, my part arrived the day after I ordered it and that was with regular shipping. Thanks fellas.

First I located the circut breaker to the oven- once no power supply was confirmed (oven light was out) I diconnected the screws that held the old element in place. Pulled the old element forward and disconnected them from the wires. The hardest part was getting onto the oven to reconnect the wires to the new element since the door opens down the work space is a little tight and awkward. Connected new element and replaced screws. Done in less than 20 minutes and no repair service calls to pay!

The replacement was simple. I turned off the power to the oven, took out two nuts holding the element in place, unscrewed the element from the power and finished the job in 10 minutes. The company that we called was going to charge nearly $200 to complete this job. I saved a lot of money by doing it my self.

Turned off power to oven and removed screws attaching element to back of oven with a socket wrench. After removing the screws, I pulled element out about six inches and used a screw driver to remove the screws that attached the two electrical wires to the end prongs of the element. After removing old element, I simply reversed the process to install the new element.

First of all I would like to praise PartSelect.
I ordered the part Friday afternoon and it was delivered the next day (Saturday) I couldn't believe it, because I chose the cheapest shipping, probably had something to do with it coming from in state.
First MAKE SURE BREAKER IS OFF, unscrew the old element from the inside of the oven and pulled it out and then unscrew the connection piece,(make sure wires don't fall back through hole once disconnected) re-screwed the new element to the connection pushed it back through the hole and then re-screwed the mount to the inside of the oven. It was that simple by far the easiest home repair I have ever done and I'm a 52 year old women.
Praying before always helps too.

Piece of cake to repair. I took both both heating elements off. I sprayed oven cleaner everywhere to soften the grime. I waited 10 minutes and wiped up the softened baking grime. Installation took 5 minutes for each element and about 15 minutes to clean the oven while both elements were removed.

I remove the back plate, pull out the wires, and unscrew the screws and put the new part. The problem that I had was reaching to the back of the oven to remove the screws. Other than that it was very simple.
