A few days before CHristmas. Baking element breaks. No pies! Oh no. I read earlier installation stories and decided I could do it myself. I ordered the part, which arrived in 3 days - still time for pies! I flipped the circuit breaker (no need to add myself to the holiday light display), removed the little holding plate in the back of the oven using a small ratchet/socket, pulled the wires off the ends of the old element using a small pliers, being careful not to let the wires slip back into the hole (there's not a lot of play in those wires, so using a hairclip or other clip on the little wires while you are inserting the new element might be helpful.) I carefully attached the wires to the new element, pushing the assembly back into the hole. After tightening the screws on the holding plate, I flipped the breaker on - and the family enjoyed fresh pumpkin pies for the holidays! Total time for the repair - less than 15 minutes. Honest. It was easy! Thanks, PartSelect!

A bit tricky getting the wires back in, had to take the back off and push wires through, wife had to help hold wires while I attached from the oven. Overall not to bad for someone who can't do anything without duct tape.
This was a week before the big baking day "Thanksgiving". I looked up G E parts & gave them my Serial #, They came up with the correct Part #. I ordered it, and with next day shipping was able to get it promptly and my next door neighbor installed it so all's well that ends well.
The element ignited and burnt like a sparkler. I unscrewed the bolt/screws holding it in, and pulled like I had on older models. The clips holding it didn't come undone, but the wires hit the side causing a huge flash. It was still hot, even though it wasn't turned on. You need to unplug the oven, or turn off the breaker. I unplugged and took the back panel running down the middle off (4 screws), and undid the clips. Putting the new one back in was easy. Insert the element ends through their places inside the oven. Screw them in place. Hook the wire clips on in back, and replace the back panel. Installation took less than 5 minutes.
Well since I am a 71 year old female - First I called my adult son to come fix it. When we pulled the old unit off one of the wires slipped back through the insulation. So the stove had to be pulled from the wall and the back plate removed. the whole thing including cleanup took about 20 minutes.
Turned off the power at the stove breaker. Removed all racks. Used nut driver to remove the two (2) mounting screws.Not knowing what's behind I gently pulled the old element out.I used two large heavy duty paper clips to hold the short power wires until I got ready to install the new unit.The procedure went really well.The unit works good and the temp is right in sync with a manual thermometer.By the way,I did remove the oven door first.

Simple....Unplug the range, remove cover in back, unhook two wires, just pull them off, remove two bolts inside oven holding element to the rear wall and remove element. Reverse procedure for instalation.
Removed back panel, tested for power, removed burned element,replaced with new element. Tested for heating, all OKThe part came very quickly!ThanksW. Weir
Replaced element in about 5 minutes, couldn't have been easier
Removed the bolts that were attached and gently pulled the element out. Removed the attached wires. Attached the wires to the new element and slid back up inside and tightened with bolts.
Unplugged the range, took off the back cover & disconnected the wires from old element. Removed the two screws that hold the element in place, removed the old element, installed the new element in reverse order. Plugged the power cord back in & checked to make sure the element would work. Very easy repair.
my husband did the repairs, my burner and oven work great. the best part was your speed on getting this sent out. It was sitting at my back door when I got home, the day before Thanksgiving. went right to work making pumpkin pies
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.
I turned the breaker off. Then I took the panel off the back of the stove to reveal the electric connections and disconnected them. Then I removed the two screws holding the element and removed it. Then went in reverse order. It was a breeze!
