the bake element was a snap. i took the back cover off i may not have had to do that but i was replacing the cook top anyway. so 4 screws and two quick electrical connectors the cook top was a little more involved but just screws. you will figure out which screws to remove. then put them back.maybe 20 screws.if you look at the bottom of the new top you can see where the screws go.this took the most time.

I actually had to hire someone to fix the problem. My stove happened to be one of those they describe on the internet where the wires were not long enough to pull out. Had I tried it would have become a major repair job. The repairman had to use needle nose pliers to grab ahold of the wires and get them out far enough. All went well though and he only charged $25.00.
It is very easy shut off the power yo the stove at the fuse box, unscrew the two screws and pull the element out replace and screw back into place.
Moved the stove, unplugged it. took the back off, took out old board installed the new one. It was just that easy and saved us from buying a new stove.
When ordering the replacement part, read the posts on how to replace the bake element. Just follwed their lead. The only difficulty is getting a hold of the wire at the back of the range that the bake element plugs into. There wasen't much play in the wire.PS Be sure and remove the range door or have very long arms.
Disconnected power to the range, Took off the oven door removed two screws and disconnected the two electrical connections to the heating element. Made the two connections to the new element and replace the two holding screws. Replace the oven door and plugged in the power cord. Turned on the oven to test and was finished.
Removed element's two mounting screws and disconnected the wire leads on each end. Connected wire leads to the new element and replaced mounting screws. Only took a few minutes to make the change. The oven is good as new.
This was very easy. All I did was unscrew the brackets from the back of the oven holding the element. Then I removed the wires from the bad element and reversed the procedure adding the new element. It was easy to order the right part and I got the item in plenty of time for the Thanksgiving holiday!
-Disconnected power from oven at the circuit breaker.-Removed oven door and racks. -Removed two screws holding element to the rear wall. -Carefully pulled element away from rear wall, exposing wire leads. -Carefully detached wire leads with male Sta-Kon connectors from element ends. (Taking care not to break or weaken the wires at the connector.) -Disposed of old element and placed new element in same position.-Re-attached leads by very carefully sliding male Sta-Kon connectors into the new element connectors, taking care not to push too hard and bend element wire. -Gently re-inserted element ends into wall and re-attached element to wall with original screws.-Reconnected power and tested new element. Element did not heat.-Disconnected power and looked for collateral damage from original element failure.-Removed oven from wall, removed rear panel and identified the high-temperature limit switch.-Removed Sta-Kon leads and checked switch for electrical continuity. It had none, apparently the result of the high current from original element short.-Obtained new hi-limit switch from Part Select-Removed and replaced hi-limit switch, re-attached leads.-Replaced rear panel and reinserted oven in wall.-Reconnected power and tested new element.

after finding my part and thank god for you guys i recieved it early it only took 4 days to get here i unscrewed my old oven part and popped the new one in easier than making cookies and now i can bake til my hearts content thanks for being there for me barbara krebs
the hardest part of this repair was the wait for the element to arrive in the mail - which was in 4 business days - then took 5 to 10 minutes to get to circuit breaker box in garage. That was the longest part of the repair. My husband took the door off the oven after turning the circuit off in the garage. Followed directions from others who made the same repair and it was done in 2 minutes! Super easy - thanks for saving us money during this time of tight budgeting around the holidays! You're a lifesaver!
I had the part overnighted since Thanksgiving was in two days and we needed to be able to use the oven. I saw a video on the website that instructed how to unplug the stove. Unscrew the baking element from the inside of back wall of oven. Gently pull out the part to where it is attached to wires. Simply pull apart the male part from female parts. Replace the old element with new element and attach it to the pulled out wires. Then gently push back wires inside the back wall of oven. Screw the attachment back in. We then plugged the oven back in. Turned on the oven to about 300 degrees. We put an oven temperature gauge inside and after a time the oven temperature was at 300 degrees and steady. It was fixed. Thanksgiving was on!
First I turned the power off to the oven using the breaker switch. Removed the old bake element by first unscrewing the 2 screws for each bracket holding each side of the old bake element and unplugging the two current connections. Replugged and rescrewed above. Turned breaker on for oven. Tested by turning oven to back and watching new bake element heat up.
Plugs in easily, screws to secure
