Unscrewed screws in back of oven holding element. Slipped old element off of wire. No need to cut wires has the kind of ends (spade ends I think they are called) that just is pushed on to element. Attached new element. slid wires back into wall of wire rescrewed to oven wall. Very easy just be sure wires don't get pulled back into back wall of oven. Don't know what you would do then.

First I gave my roommate (an engineer) a screwdriver to remove the two screws that held the element in place. Then before I could hit the switch for the circuit breaker, he nearly fried himself by trying to take out the element! He gave up helping me after that.

Then I turned off the circuit, pulled the oven out and unplugged it, removed the racks from the oven, removed the two screws that hold in the element, and lifted up each side of the element and pulled each piece out. Unfortunately, they were a little stuck in back.

So I pulled out the oven, unscrewed the 6 or 8 screws that held up the back panel, and pulled the back panel off. I disconnected the two wires clipped to the element and pulled the old element out by lifting up and pulling them out. I then put in the new bake element, clipped the wires back on, put the oven's back panel on and screwed it in place, and then screwed the bake element back in with those two screws. Easy - a

For an electrical appliance, it doesn't get easier then this, this was real easy.

I removed both baking racks, unscrewed two screws holding the old element in place, pulled out element about 1 1/2 inches, removed the wires off of each end of the element, then replaced with new element in reverse order. That was it. Had time to play 18 holes of Golf!

i called Sears and ordered the element and they charged me 16.99 plus the part to ship the next day. after 1 week i called them and they said the part was on backorder. i then check with them each week almost a month and the part was still on back order, I asked if they could fix it faster if they came to the house, they informed me it would cost 65.00 for a repair person to see what part i needed and after that they would schedule m e for a repair when the part came in. meanwhile i could not use my oven. i happened to go on line and came up with your web site. i ordered the part and 2 days later my son installed it. my oven works great . your company is awsome.

The element went out on a Wednesday. We ordered the part the next day. We received it the following Tuesday (Mon. was a holiday). My 16 yr. old son replaced the part within 15 minutes. It was a piece of cake-actually it was a pizza!!
First and foremost we turned off the breaker, a very important thing to remember!! Then he removed the two screws that hold the element in place. He then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires...and reconnected the new ones and put screws back in. Voila!! Ours was stillll under warranty, but we would have had to pay the service call and labor costs. Our do it yourself was much cheaper and faster!!

Removed screws. Tried to pull out old element but spade lugs on old element were bent at ninety degree angle. Once I figured that out I was able to manouver the old element out with the attached wires. Had to be carfull that the loose wires did not slip back ijn through the hole. Reaching in over the oven door was a but diffcult, but all-in-all the jobe was done in a few minutes.
