It's replaceable,if it's an exposed element meaning you can look in the oven and see the element you can do it yourself unplug the range take out the two screws securing it pull it slowly toward you,unplug the two connectors and put in the new one,if it's a hidden bake meaning you can't see the element you would be better off having it done.
