Just like the other responses described with two additional steps: 1) with a convection oven you have to remove the fan cover. It has four screws, the same size as the broiler element screws....but, get a piece of stiff cardboard the same width as the oven; put it all the way back, under the fan cover. There are holes in the oven bottom and your screws really want to roll into those holes and disappear; the cardboard will cover the holes. 2) as soon as you disconnect the element from the electrical wires....put a twist tie or other clamp on each wire as they want to fall back in behind the oven and you'll end up having to remove the build oven to get at the wires. The twist tie should keep them from falling out of reach.

After getting the part from PartSelect, which only took 2 days to get here and was in great condition and matched perfectly. I went to the customers house, shut off the power to the oven, removed the 2 screws holding in the element, pulled the element out and removed the leads. Took the new element and put the leads on the contacts, pushed the wires and leads back into the hole and screwed in the 2 screws. Went outside and turned the breaker back on, went and turned the oven on to broil, waited a few seconds and it heated up perfectly, and the customer was real happy. She said it was great that she could bake again. Thank you guys for sending the right part in a timely manner and good condition, it keeps my customers happy and keeps me in business. Joe

The range kept giving an F2 alarm

When I got the part I removed the tin cover (two screws)on the back of the range. I removed the sensor by removing the two screws inside the oven and pulled out the sensor. taking the instructions advise, I checked the sensor with my ohm meter and although it read 1.1 ohms as compared with the recommended 1.09 ohms at room temperature in the instructions, went ahead and changed the unit. The connector did not fit my particular model so I spliced the wiring and using the two included wire nuts made the connection. I reinstalled the sensor, reattached the gas line, plugged it in and tried the oven before I put it back in place. The oven works great now and it was super easy.

First of all, go to circuit breaker box and switch off the power to the oven.

Return to oven and verify the power is definitely off.

Open oven door to 'vent' position and remove door. Return hinges to closed position. Remove all racks.

Using nut driver (1/4-inch) remove the two screws just above the element.

Gently rock the element back and forth while pulling gently toward yourself. You should see two wires emerging from the layer of insulation in back of oven. When you have enough wire exposed, use long-nose pliers to gently rock the 'Faston' connectors and pull them off the element's male connectors.

Insert new element and re-install the connectors, being certain they are fully engaged.

Fasten the new element to the back wall of the oven using nut driver. Be careful to not cross-thread - gentle is the word!

Turn the circuit breaker on and very briefly turn the oven to Bake and verify the element is heating. It likely will smoke a bit.

Re-install the racks and the door. Reset the clock.

You should be done and your oven should run for many years..
