I removed the damaged element by removing the two screws holding it against the back wall of the oven. I pulled the old element out to expose the wires on each end. I pulled the wires off the old element and removed it. Plugged the wires onto he new element, and slid the wires back through the holes. Re-installed using the same screws. Done.

Pulled oven out, unplugged it, took off the back panel, undid the bolts that held the element in place, unhooked the old element and replaced it with new one. That was easy, considering we were ready to buy a new range.

The very first thing I did was turn off the power at the breaker box. Then, I removed the baking racks. Next, I remove the two screws holding the element in place and pulled the element out about 3-4 inches. Disconnecting the wires was simple because all I had to do was slide them off the old element & push them on to the new one. Once that was done, I replaced the screws to hold the new element in place, turned the power back on and tried the oven. Perfect. I am so happy I was able to do this repair myself, and the only cost was the element.

After determining that the baking element was not working, I ordered a replacement. It arrived the next day and I drove to my mother in laws ( who owned the electric range). I used a flashlight to see what tools would be required. I used a nutdriver and a pair of needle nosed pliers. I unplugged the stove from the 220 volt receptacle and unscrewed the fasteners holding the element to the back of the stove. I used the pliers to gently pull the wire clip off the element stud and replaced the old element with the new one. I re-attached the wires and secured the element back with the fasteners. I plugged the stove back in, turned the oven on and problem solved. The element turned cherry red, and after closing the oven door, I set the temp to 250 degrees and after about 10 minutes, I opened the door, and the element had shut itself off after reaching the desired temperature.
It was so easy of a repair, that my wife could have done it with no problems and she is not a "repair" person.
Excellent product and excellent time on the shipping.
