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.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. connected the new element, reassembled and SHAZAM. It worked. I am not good with electrical circuit testing etc. even though I know it must be easy so after reading many stories here, I decided to start by replacing just the element and see if I got lucky. I did. No need to call expensive repairman.

Oven would not heat, broiler still worked.

I unplugged the stove for precautionary reasons.
I then removed the two screws holding element in place with the correct nutdriver.
I then carefully pulled out the element and pulled the two female spade connectors off.
I then compared to new element and plugged the new element in.
Finally I screwed in the new element and tested the oven.
It worked again!! I would recommend running the oven for a bit before placing anything in to bake. this allows burn off of stuff on the new element.

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
