Removed 2 hex head machine screws. Picked up on the element and slid wires through. One wire became unattached. Removed back panel, pushed wire through the oven wall, and replaced the back panel. Wires connected with push on connectors. Pushed attachment assembly back through the oven wall and replaced 2 machine screws. Viola! Working oven.
2 screws removed holding element in. Wires are very short and after removing from the element one wire went back into the insulation. Had to remove the back from the range to get access to wires.
Removed old baking element by removing two sheet metal screws inside the oven and pulling out the old element. When pulling out the old element, one of the wires was too short and popped back into the back of the oven. I then had to pull out the oven, take the shielding off the back of the appliance, gain some slack in the wire and push it back into the interior of the oven. I connected the new element and was finished with the repair.
First my husband removed the two screws that hold the element in place. Then pulled the element out and diconnected the two wires. The wires popped back in, so he took the shield off the back, I pushed the element in so he could see the prongs and hooked the wired back on. He then replaced the 2 screws and i was back to baking.Thanks
First- I slid the ove out and unscrewed the back metal piece/flap that covers where the element attaches to wires.Second- I unscrewed the two nuts/screws that holld the element in place-An appropriately sized socket wrench would have made it way easier.Third-Before pulling the element out, I disconnected the wire connection-the element tab just slid out of the connector.Fourth- Pull out the old element and replace with new one. Attach wires before screwing in the element place holders. Fifth-Replace back cover and screws. slide oven back into its nook,Sixth-Bake some cookies.
Simply remove it and replaced with new.
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...)
My husband did the repairs so I don't really know all of those details. I do know that the replacement product was delivered as scheduled and because I had read all of the other repair stories, I knew to tell him not to let the wires slip back into the back of the oven. Thanks for all of you who wrote about your experiences. It only took him 15 minutes to fix my oven!

WELL I first took off the oven door and then took out the baking racks. Then I used my nutdriver without and bits in it, since the screws that needed to be removed were .25" hex tops and that is the same size as the hole one the end of my nutdriver that you put the bits in, to unscrew the 2 screws. I then pulled out the element, but I could only get one side to come out. So I pushed the right side back in and tried to pull the left side out. Then there was a very load clap, a lot of sparks and some smoke. I then checked to make sure the knob was in the OFF position and it was. Then I pulled the stove out and unplugged it, something I felt I did not need to do because the switch was in the OFF position. I then removed the middle section from the back of the stove and unhooked the old element, went back to the front and pushed the new one into place and tighten the 2 screws. Went back behind the stove and connected the 2 wires, put the back piece back on, plugged the stove back in, pushed the stove back into place, then turned the stove ON to make sure the new part worked and it did. I then put the racks back in and the door back on and it oven was ready to make dinner. And NO I did not learn my lesson about first unplugging electric things before working on them, that is usually falls between steps 2 to 4. Louis
Turn off power at breaker 2.Remove two screws and pull out wire just about 3 to 4 inches so I could remove each side of clips. 3 clip the new bake unit to wires and screw the new unit back in to existing holes.4 Turn on breaker and start oven. I did it in less than 15 min it took longer to find my tools.
Read posts on this site by others who did the same repair and found that to be a great help especially since the part came with out instructions.From the posts I was expecting the wires to be short and had vice grips available to stop them from sliding back through the insulation. One still did though. I took off the back plate and pushed it back through. Piece of cake. The clips on the end of the wires were pretty loose and I used some needle nose to crimp them down. I also made sure to unplug the oven prior to starting.
The repair was quite easy once, I knew what was behind the heating coil back plate.•Slide the range out from the wall•Remove the two sheet metal screws with a nut driver on the coil back plate and lightly pull on the heating-coil until the leads are visible through the insulation•Hold onto the leads and pull on the coil until separation•Remove the coil•Remove (4) metal screws with the nut driver on the long rectangular cover plate on the back of the oven•With assistance in the back of the oven, have them push on the leads separately so that you can grab and attach each lead to the coil. Otherwise, you will keep fitting to hold onto the leads and they will keep extracting back into the insulation.•Install the new coil•Once the leads are attached, replace the metals sheet screws with a nut driver on the coil back plate•Replace the (4) sheet metal screws on the rectangular cover plate on the back of the oven•Slide unit back into place making sure that the rear foot slides into the tip-over bracket•Finished
My husband pulled out the stove, removed the center back panel, disconnected the old element, removed it, placed the new element in the oven, reconnected it, replaced the back panel onto the back of the stove and that was it. It took maybe 5 minutes and we saved about $10.00 purchasing the part from part select. We would definitely buy parts from PartSelect again.
