Repair was super easy, Remove Screws. (the hardest part was trying to remove the edging of the door without cracking it, or breaking the tabs used to secure it) Once I got the edges off, I slid the front of the door off, removed the screws and braces holding the outer glass. Picked out the broken pieces, cleaned all the glass and inside the door and put it all back together. If I didn't clean everything, it would've taken half the time.

Removed two screws holding cooktop to oven. Unlike the video, the cooktop was not detachable as the wires were hard-wired to the range, so I had to prop the top up with a 6" block of wood and was working upside down. I replaced the element and everything worked just fine.

KILL POWER FIRST. I should have read other entries on here prior to starting. I would have learned that one leg of the element is always hot. Fortunately it arced against the oven, and all I had to do was replace the terminal. Could have been much worse. Unplug range or shut off circuit breaker prior to doing any electrical work. Verify 0 voltage before starting if you shut off the breaker.

Heating Element Caught Fire

During normal use, the heating element on my electric range burst into flames one day. Judging from the internet, this is actually fairly common! It's an electrical fire, so it's important to shut the oven off at once, and not a bad idea to cut the circuit breaker immediately. Then put the fire out and unplug. Remove what's left of the old element by unscrewing 2 mounting screws where it enters the oven rear wall. Taking door off of oven made it easier to lean in there. Then pull the crimp connections apart to get the wires off of each end. There are videos on youtube and partselect.com showing how. One thing they don't mention is that the wires may want to disappear back into the hole in the oven wall once they're loose. So hang onto them. I put a piece of duct tape around each one to keep it from slipping back into those small holes. When the new element arrived, I just reconnected the two crimp connectors and re-mounted the two screws. Of course, make sure range is unplugged while you're in there. Those two wires have 220V on them. I'm also never again going to leave my range on, either in baking or cleaning mode, when I'm not home. That fire was scary!

The hardest part was deciding if this part would fix the problem. The upper oven became unusable. Both elements worked fine until reaching temperature. The oven would not come back on after that. I took two screws out. Then I pulled the wires out and unsnapped the coupling. The install was reverse. I just snapped the coupling in place and replaced the two screws. All works fine now. Saved a couple thousand as wife was prepared to buy a new one.

Inner door glass shattered

There are five Phillips head screws to remove from the door (2 top, 3 bottom); the only touch part is that there are no screws on the sides, but instead plastic tabs on each side that "latch" inside the door frame; you have to use a flat blade screwdriver to work each tab and press on the door frame to unlatch each tab (yup I broke one, not knowing the setup the first time, but it went back together OK anyway). Once the tabs are unlatched from the frame, the entire front or the door will come off (be ready for this); then, just a few screws to take off the 2nd inner door glass frame (remove second glass carefully), and your to the inner glass, which just fits within the frame. Then, carefully backwards and the door is together again (once again, provide support as you take the last tab/screw off the outside of the front door, or you'll have more broken parts).

I pulled down the wire around the glass cover. . . Released on end of the wire from its holder being careful to not let the glass cover drop. Unscrewed the bulb and replaced with replacement. Easy, easy.
