This part fixes the following symptoms:
First, we turned off power to the range. We removed the screws holding the element to the back wall of the oven and pulled out the element a few inches. We disconnected the 2 wires from the old element, and attached the new element with the 2 provided screws. We pushed the element back into the wall and secured it with the screws. Turned the power back on, turned the stove back on and, voila, the frozen pizza was well on its way to becoming dinner!

This was so easy to do. First I took the two screws out of the holding plate. Then the element comes out and I took the two screws attaching the wires to each end of the element out. To replace it just reverse the above and turn it on let it heat for about 10 mins to burn off any residue and you are ready to start baking again. Although not really necessary it is reccommended to unplug or turn of the breaker before you start working on the problem.
First I removed the two screws that held the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. Then I removed the old element from the oven and replaced it with the new element. Then I connected the two wires to the new element and pushed the element into place. Then I replaced the two screws that held the element in place. I then tested the oven and it worked wonderfully.
Removed two screws and take Element out and put new one in.It is very easy to do.
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 copy and pasted this from their example - it really is that easy - this is a simple repair.
TURN OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER before doing anything even if oven is not turned on! If I hadn't checked voltage with tester before starting I would have made a shocking discovery.1) unscrewed shield cover to get get at the element screws.2) unscrewed element screws and removed old element - pulling connecting wires out about 3 inches3)attached new element to connecting wires (2 screws)4) pushed new element into place and reattached element connector plate to wall of oven5) reattached shield cover to wall of oven

Connected the wires on the new element.4. Screwed the element back in.5. Connected the stove and turned on the oven.6. It works like a new one.
super easy - unpluged stove - unscrewed old element w/nutdriver from back of stove. unwired element - discarded. wired new element (2 wires). secured new element to back of stove. pluged stove back in. works great. Ordered part on Sunday, recieved it on Tuesday- VERY NICE SERVICE
Pulled out the bottom drawer of the stove and discovered the plug. So the plug was pulled from the wall socket.Before this I had sprayed the screws with WD-40 and let it sit for 2 days.Screws came out easily. Pulled out the old element and removed screws. Screwed on new element on both sides. Put in place and put old screws back. Plugged stove back in. Turned on stove. Element came right on.
This was extremely easy to replace. When I told my mom I would replace it for her, she thought I was crazy. When she saw how easy it was, she finally understood. I had to remove the two screws holding the element in place. I pulled it out about 3 inches and unscrewed one screw for one wire. I didn't want to lose the wire, so I immediately connected the wire to the new element. I disconnected the second wire and attached it to the new bake element. Then attached the two screws putting the plate back up, securing the element. So easy! Just unscrewing and replacing 4 screws and I was done!! Took less than 10 minutes. I didn't have any real tools available, so I used a small adjustable wrench and it worked fine. The best part was it was so easy we were able to have a working oven in time for Thanksgiving!
Just like your example said/turn the power off to the oven/remove the screws that hold the element in place and then I pulled th element out a little ways and disconnected the wires/reconnecting took a little longer only because it was hard to see/but I connected the two wires and put the screws back in and it worked. Saved me a lot of money/my husband wanted to get a new double oven
Repair was as easy as one, two three. Turned off the power and removed the two screws holding the element in place. Then pulled the element out approx. 3 inches and removed the two screws connecting the wires to the element. From there I reversed the process and the repair was complete in less then 5 minutes, and I am not a electrician.
It was so easy. Just removed the cover and then unscrewed the wires (keep track of which wires go to which side). Do teh reverse to reinstall
First I read the already posted repair stories to give me confidence I could perform the repair.Followed their steps -Removed the two screws holding the plate to the oven.Pulled out the element.Removed the two screws holding the wires to the element.Installed the new element by attaching the two screws (which were supplied) to the element.Reinstalled the plate to the oven.Tested it and it worked perfectly saving a costly service call.
