We ordered the part, it arrived quickly my husband removed the burnt out element. We took the back off the stove in order to install the new part. It was easier to connect from the back than reach in to the oven. An easy repair and the stove works fine now.

First cut the power at the breaker and then removed the rear panel of the range. Then removed the two retaninig screws in the oven and then unplugged the old element in the back. Cleaned out the molten metal and remains of dinner and installed new element same way the old one came out and voila, oven is back in operation.

I removed the two screws that hold the element, then I took the back cover of the range to have access to the wires, after that, I took the old one out, placed the new one and finally hooked the wires and placed the two screws right back. Very easy. I thought about bringing someone to do the job, and after I was done, I couldn't believe how easy it was.

First, the part was an EXACT fit - what a relief. Thanks PartSelect! Teh oven door had to be taken apart a bit, but once I found the right nut wrench, it went smoothly. Having another set of hands really helped.

I too made the mistake of cleaning the oven with the shelves in place. It doesn't really harm them...but they turn a tarnished brown color...they look dirty. These replacement shelves were a perfect match. Pricing was reasonable, communication was terrific and shipping was super fast. Happy camper here :-)

The hardest part was taking out original light bulb because screws on shield where hard to unscrew after all this years . The old bulb vent out leaving neck in socket. It took narrow electrical pliers to get neck out .The generic appliance bulb did not fit and had aluminum neck ,not recommended for brass sockets in ovens.Putting new light bulb in was not the problem.

First, I read what other customers posted on this site about how to change the element. =)

I didn't have a nutdriver so I used a pair of pliers instead. They worked fine.

Pulled the stove away from the wall, unplugged it, removed the 4 small nuts holding the small plate over the back of the element connections, slid the connectors off the element prongs, removed baking racks from oven, removed 3 screws holding the element in place, slid element out.

To put the element in I simply did the same thing except in reverse order. The entire process was so easy and only took minutes to complete! However, like another poster, I took the opportunity to clean my oven before putting in the new element.

The best part of dealing with partselect....the element only cost me $51 vs GE site price of $91, Plus the element arrived the morning after I had placed the order! Thank you partselect! In gratitude, I posted my happy experience and a link to this site on my facebook! Thanks for everything!
