My Repair & Advice
Ordered replacement bake element from AppliancePartsPros.com over telephone after verifying part availability.
Received part after several days, and installed it immediately. Closed circuit breaker in main panel. Verified no power by switching oven on. No light, no clock, no heating, etc.
Used screwdriver only to remove screws, pull element out just enough to access/disconnect slide on connectors. Connected new element and reinstalled screws. Powered back on.
