If your symptoms include: your oven is not heating evenly, not starting, or the heating is not consistent, then replacing the element can be the solution. Remove two retaining screws, make sure to disconnect the two connecters at each end of the element, and replace with the new one.

It was easy except that I had to make just a small modification to the electrical connection (holes were to small). . . . Other than that, its was a breeze to install.

First I turned off the power at the fuse box, then removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires and replaced with the new element. Very Easy!
Turned off power to oven. Removed two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled out the element far enough to get to the wires so I could disconnect them. I connected the new element and screwed it back in. 10 mins tops!!!
removed two screws disconnected old element from the two wires and replaced it with the new element. It saved $60.00 service call.
I had to struggle to get the pliers to grab hold of the screw because they were so tight. I was worried about "stripping the screws" but finally they loosened and I got them both out. My friend was holding the flashlight, so that helped. I was not real sure what to do next but the wires popped off the element so it was clear that all I had to do was pop the new one on. Easy. I had the most trouble trying to get the screws out. I saved myself $$$. Thanks for your help in sending the correct part!
Ordering and shipment of the part were quick and easy. The price was excellent too. It was the easiest repair we ever had to do to an appliance. After removing the screws that held the element in place and disconnected the part, my husband immediately connected the new part. It took less than 15 minutes.
Repair was very easy-make sure you shut the electricity off at the breaker box-having the oven control off does not kill the electricty to the element . Removed the screws, pull out the element, disconnected two wires, re-attach to the new element, install the screws.
