Question about Ovens
If you are concerned about the two electrical wires that connect to a replacement heating element, don't worry. It's AC, the heating element is just a big resistor, and the wires are electrically interchangeable. Just make sure the connections are clean, the wires aren't mechanically stressed, the metal terminals aren't too close to the metal parts other than the heater connections, and the wire insulation won't be in direct contact with the heater.
If you have more than two wires, or you are talking about a mechanical issue like how to mount the heater element, you'll need to post back with the model number and a more detailed description of the problem (for electrical issues, include the wire colors). Many ovens have a copy of the wiring diagram somewhere inside the back of the oven - this will show what color of wire goes where electrically.
