You need an element?
May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
Are you replacing a bake or grill element? What part number?
See the attached page. That is the bake element for the model you posted. Is that what you are replacing?
Oh, the fan element. One wire to each side, it does not matter if they go on the outside or inside as they are connected to the same terminal on the element. So just put one wire to each outside terminal and you will be good to go!
Please let me know if you have additional questions or need clarification. There is no additional charge for any follow up help!

Correct, just one to each pair.
The connector is probably loose. Do you have a pliers you can pinch it with a little bit and then slide it on?
Great! That should snug it up a bit and keep it in place!
The odor is fine, it is to be expected with a new element. If a connector comes off and shorts to ground, it will trip the power supply.
Well, it would create a direct short to earth ground and will spark, so it could be, yes. You definitely want to make sure the connections are tight.
I suspect it will be just fine!
Thank you so much!
It will last probably for half hour of constant burn time. I would turn the oven to bake with the fan element for an hour and it should burn off. The odor will be absorbed by the food so I would not cook with it still present.
You bet, thank you!
