Hi and welcome to Just Answer. I am sorry to hear about your range.


While I look this up, is the element visible when installed or is it behind a panel?

Having trouble with the "reply" button. It is very acessible and visible, should be simple fix

Great. Simply remove any screws that hold the element in place, pull the element toward you, and unscrew the attached wires.


Attach the wires to the new element, push it back into place, and reattach the screws.


It's not very hard to do.
