In this action-packed episode of Appliantology TV, Samurai Appliance Repair Man tip-toes you through the tulips of replacing a Kentucky-Fried bake element in an electric oven.  A Kentucky Fried element is one that has gone FWF  (Failed With Fireworks, arcing and sparking).  Whenever you're dealing with a Kentucky-Fried element, you have to check to see if the control board has been damaged and that's exactly what the Samurai shows you how to do.  
 
Here's the replacement bake element I used to fix this oven:  http://www.repaircli.../WB44X5082/3358
 
There's also another video at the link above that gives more details on the steps for replacing the element.

I use these to grab and hang onto the wire terminals so that they do not pull back into the mounting holes...
