We have the original 1970's counter top stove and the elements were breaking!!! My 13 year old son replaced the two elements (I think the process is not that hard to do and I don't know the steps... sorry!) and dad helped him make the drip bowls fit (since we haven't been able to find parts locally!)

The repair was straight forward; Loosen the screw at the tilt mechanism allowing the burner element to come off the stove and then unscrew two electrical connectors freeing the burned element. The installation could have been as easy as reversing the procedure however the lugs on the new element were poorly placed making it difficult to attach the two halves of the supplied insulator with the clips that secure the two halves. The insulator required the wires to be bent 90 degrees which further complicated the installation. A dremel and some dielectric grease completed the task to my satisfaction. It should have been a 15 minute job. The new element functions far better that the burned element prior to its demise. I should have changed it long ago. I bought the 8" element as a back-up because this stove has only one large burner. However, given my experience with the improvement of the 6", I'll change it shortly. And knowing I may run into the same installation hiccup, I'll prefit the ceramic insulator.
Followed instruction that came in the new parts. Each element took about 10 minutes to remove, inspect the wires, clean the connections and reconnect the new elements. The element covers that came with the kit were easy to install, and everything fit just fine. Most important thing is to turn of the electrical power to the unit BEFORE you start.
I held a flashlight directly on the repair sight while my husband disconnected the old burner unit and put on the new. The extra light was essential as it's kind of dark and part of the repair takes place partly under the stove top and our bodies were blocking the light coming from above. Also pay attention to how it is put together and make a note of it before you take it apart. Other than that it was very easy to replace the bad burner.
turn off power at breaker. lift element from stove top lift out drip bowl . remove clips and ceramic cover. unfasten three wires. using new element install three wires to new burner ,clip on ceramic cover then slide burner back in to stove top and install drip bowl turn on power and test
