Burned out oven bake element

My Repair & Advice
Very easy fix. Remove oven door by just opening it slightly and pulling up. (an easy way to clean it too). Then, with a phillips screw driver, remove two screws holding the damaged element in place. Slowly pull the element toward the front a couple inched to expose the wires. Disconnect the wires (no tools needed), remove the old element and replace it with the new. Reverse the past few steps and re-attach the wires and screw. Simple as that. I also chose to replace the Broiler Element as a precautionary measure following essentially the same procedure (a few more screws). The oven door gasket was old and leaking, so it was also replaced as well. No tools require.
