Removed two screws that attach bake element to rear of oven. Slid off blade type connectors at each end. Slid connectors onto new element. Pushed element into place and reinstalled two screws. Tested. Perfect. Took longer to do this survey than to do the repair! The one day shipping service was a big plus.

first I took the opportunity to clean the oven really well, Turned off the electricity at the breaker box, Took out the screw on each side and pulled out to view the clips they were attached to, they came off easily, I attached the new ones pushed in to place and reattached the 2 screws. Easiest thing I've ever done and was so cost effective to do this instead of replacing the stove. Works great!I can't believe it was shipped so quickly. I will be shopping here in the future!!!

#1...love the website where it helped us diagnose our problem. Also the video where it showed us exactly where and what to do. #2 we accessed the rear of range and unplugged. #3 Took back panel off of range to exposed wires and clips of heating bake element. #4- removed old element from the clips to find that one end was FRIED and FRAYED. Like something burned through the clip. 5- We cut and stripped the end of the hot wire, re-attached the new clip to repaired wire. 6 - plugged her back in...turn the oven on to see that the NEw coil heated up wonderfully. BEST part of the story yet....I placed the order via internet on Monday at 3:45 pm. I paid for the standard shipping of $7.95 or 3-7 day delivery. On Tuesday AM....the very next day, I was WOKEN up by my doorbell at 8:05 AM....by the time I got to the door to see who it was...the FED EX truck was pulling out of my driveway. THEREFORE I got overnight delivery without paying for it. AWESOME delivery, service, transaction....and great website and parts!! HIGHLY recommend to all!!!!

Called Sears, repairman couldn't come for a week and would cost $129 for visit not including parts. Went to Sears repair store, part cost more than the part I had already found online and would take a week to arrive. Ordered the part online, paid for next day delivery, watched a video on how to replace. Had my oven back in two days and $59!!!

Removed old coil by unscrewing the element and unplugging it from the wires, adjusted the terminal slightly and plugged in the wire from the new element.

It was a very simple process and would have taken me less time if I wasn't so old and couldn't bend easily!

Repair went fine as I read on how to do it and it worked fine. Hardest part was hitting the hole for the screws.

I am a 62 year old woman. All I had to do was unscrew the retaining screws on the back of the oven wall, pull the element out and unplug it. When the new one came, I did it in reverse. It took about five minutes. Ps: I did turn the breaker off first....

After removing the old broken element, I searched the internet for the part by brand and model number. With very little trouble, I located the correct part, ordered it and waited for the notice of shipment. In 5 days, and that included Memorial weekend we had the part and in 5 minutes the part was installed. The cost was $31.20 plus shipping..not bad!

Removed old element (two screws) unclipped two wires. Clipped the two wires to the new element (one at each end), reinserted new element, replaced the two screws. Done. Oh, flipped the circuit breaker back on:-)

The old element toasted. Burned-up completely.

I shut the breaker off at the main power box.
In the oven, I loosened two screws to remove the old element (parts now, after the burn-out). I pulled the old element out of the back wall of the oven to expose the wire connections. I detached the simple sliding wire connectors. Done with removal. I waited for the new element to arrive (one week). Installed easily. Turned on the breaker and baked a few potatoes. Very simple.

First I turned OFF the elect power to the stove.
Then I got a flash light to see into the oven. removed the two screws, anf pulled the element out far enough to disconnect the two wires.
Put the connecters on the new element pushed it back put the two screws back.
Turned the power on works great, very easy.

The previous repair stories were extremely helpful! The most difficult part was unhooking the old element and I assume some of that was contributed by it's age. Installing was a piece of cake!
