How do you replace elements?

Greg for Model Number RF368LXPS0

ANSWER Hello Greg. 1. Turn off the electrical supply to the range. 2. Open the oven door and remove the screws from under the front of the maintop, then close the oven door. 3. Slide the maintop forward and remove the ground wire and main harness strain relief from the rear of the maintop. 4. Lay a protective covering between the maintop and the range to protect the finish, then turn the maintop over and lay it on the covering so that you can access the components. 5. Disconnect the wires from the terminals of the limiter, and remove the screws, then pull the sensor tube out of the element, and remove the limiter. If you are only replacing the limiter, carefully install the new limiter in the element, and reconnect the wires to the terminals. 6. At the back of the maintop, remove the screw from the retaining bracket that contains the defective surface element and limiter, then carefully raise the end of the bracket, and lift the element and limiter from the maintop. 7. If you are replacing a surface element, disconnect the wires from the terminals and reconnect them to the new element, then carefully install the limiter in the new surface element. 8. Remove the old element, clean the glass of any debris, and install the new element. 9. Reinstall the maintop and reassemble the range. REASSEMBLY NOTE: When reinstalling the maintop, make sure that it is centered on the range, that the side brackets are engaged, and that the rear side flanges are inside the end caps. Hope this helps.
