My Repair & Advice
I purchased a replacement element. I first turned the electrical circuit breaker off then removed the oven door and oven racks for easier access to the oven element. As it is a convection oven, I used a phillips screwdriver to remove the screws holding the large cover in the back of the oven that covers/protects the convection fan. Once the cover was removed I had access to the two screws holding the heating element in place. I pulled the heating element out as far as the slack in the wires allowed. I unscrewed the screw from each terminal of the defective element, making sure the wire did not fall back into the rear of the oven. After attaching the new element I reinstalled the fan cover, racks and oven door, and turned on the circuit breaker. The new element was an exact fit.
