Shut off breaker to oven and remove oven racks. Use nut driver to remove two screws on the plate at back of the oven. Carefully pull the element forward to expose the two screws that attach element to oven wires. Place forcepts or clothes pin on the oven wires to prevent them from slipping back into the oven wall. Remove the two screws and remove old element - reverse the process to install new element. When the old element has been removed, it provides an excellent opportunity to clean the oven with no obstructions before installing the new element. Easy job.

Screws out, new ones in, done. The only thing I'll add which had me concerned was that the element photo shown on the one inch grid didn't show the mounting screws at 3.5" on center which is what my oven had. Fortunately, the picture notwithstanding, the new part was punched at 3.5" so it went right in.
Unplugged oven. Removed old element. 1.Two 5 mm metal screws held plate to oven wall, 2. 2 screws with a Phillips head connected element to wires. Reconnected with new element and reconnected to wall and it did not work. Unplugged again and removed small back cover to oven where wiring is. Suspected new element might hit frame. Bent wiring harness slightly so it would clear frame. Place cover on, plugged back in and it worked like a charm. Very satisfied.
Shut off the breaker (of course). Got my tools together--a nut driver, screw driver, flashlight and reading glasses. There are two nuts to loosen first then screws. Replace the element and the screws, nuts and you are finished. I did turn on the oven (400 degrees) for 15 minutes to burn off any chemicals and test my handywork. Very easy to switch out, using instructions from other customers. Thanks for the tips guys!
Losses the elements from back of oven unscrew the old elements from the attached wire the attach new element to these wires slide carefully into the back of the oven screw in place be sure the electric is off at the electric panel when working on oven took no more than 30minutes
I removed the old element, found a part number on the old element and ordered a new one. Thankfully they still made it as the oven was built in 1988. The part arrived and it was just as simple to install as it was to remove.
The repair was easy and I thank the other posters here for the tips that made it that way. In particular the mention in one post that specified the size of the screws, 1/4 inch and using a Rachet so I was able to know up front that I didn't have the right size in my toolbox. Also the people that mentioned clipping the wires as they do try to slip away as you work. I turned the power back on and was able to burn my finger testing it in just moments.
Pretty much the same as everyone else said ... turned off the power, removed the screws and wires, attached the screws and wires ... done. Pretty simple. A very easy repair job. Thanks, !
1. Turn off power at the house panel. Remove two screws from retainer plate at the back of the oven that hold heat element. 2. Pull old element forward exposing the connections. Remove the screws holding the wires connected to the elements. The old screws required the nut driver. Hold the tabs with the pliers while removing the screws to prevent the tabs from breaking off. 3. Use the screws provided with the new element to attach the wires to the new element. Remember to hold the tabs with the pliers to prevent breaking. 4. Push the connections back into place at the back of the oven. Connect the backing plate to the oven with the screws that came out. 5. Inspect the oven to verify that the installation was clean. Turn the power back on at the panel. Test the oven by setting the temp to 450 degrees and make sure the element glows. Turn off the oven. 6. Your job is complete.
Kill power to oven by the circuit breaker and padlock it out so no one else can turn it on while you are working on the oven. Remove shelf units so you can comfortably reach the back of the oven. Unscrew 2 screws holding the bottom baking element to the oven back. Put lock pliers on each wire (so they don't go back into the wall). Remove 2 screws holding wires to element. Replace element. Replace two screws holding wires to element. Feed wires back into insulated back of oven so they don't get crimped. Attach new element with 2 screws to back of oven. Turn electricity back on. Test element.
