    what’s the proper way to connect wires to oven elements? i originally used female spade terminals with the plastic cover removed, but i’ve had a lot of problems with those. even when i crimped them onto the element terminals, i guess there is enough arcing that the element terminals become erroded and the connection eventually fails. i tried using split bolts and those failed instantly. then i came across this diagram and it made more sense.

    so i ordered new elements, and they don’t have holes in the terminals for a screw. i’m guessing i should drill holes and attach with screws?
