Slide the 1/4″ wire spade connector off each end of the old element, careful not to let the wire draw back into hole. Remove the old element from the oven.
Place the new oven element on the oven floor. Slide the 1/4″ wire connectors onto each end of the new oven element. Push the new element into the 2 holes the old element came out of. Install the 2 sheet metal screws you removed earlier. Reapply the electrical power .Turn the oven on and allow the new element to heat up .
