First I removed the screws and popped off the existing element. One of the wires "disappeared" back into the insulation, so I had to remove the back panel of the oven to access that wire and push it back through the opening. Then I attached the new element to the wires and replaced the finishing screws.

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 I turned off breaker, pulled out oven unplugged/or dissconnected electricity to oven, unscrewed broken element in oven, unscrewed back panel of oven to disconnect 2 wires from element, and replaced with new element, then repeated the above in reverse.
Very easy for a typical DYI person.

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.

One of the two wires slipped back into the void space.

I ended up having to re-move the back panel on the stove to access one of the wires, so that I could pull the hot wire back through the inside of the oven. The connection to the bake element was then made simple and easy. My time lost was removing the back panel and re-installation. I can not complain about the repair problem. I saved at least a couple hundred bucks. So that's my story. Thanks for the response in expediting my order of the exact bake element.

I checked prices on the internet and found your price the cheapest and ordered the part on a holiday. The part arrived in two days and was installed and back to work pronto. Having worked in sales at Caterpillar Inc for a lifetime, I know how important quick delivery and short downtime is to our customers and you came through for me. I am satisfied with my experience dealing with your company.

baking element burned out

My baking element burned out after being exposed to grease and other remnants of past feasts. After some research the repair seemed straight forward so I figured I'd give it a shot. Overall it's fairly simple, though there are some things to watch out for.

I didn't remove my oven's door, which restricted my movement somewhat. After removing the bolts I was able to easily remove the old heating element and expose the two connecting wires. One wire had much more slack than the other. I connected the wire with more slack first. However, I'm somewhat uncoordinated and doing so caused the other wire to retract within the unit. I had to pull out my stove and remove the back panel, which was easy. The retracted wire was easy to find, but there was no slack available through the back access either. I actually had to unscrew the wire from the thing that is connected to the wire that plugs in to the outlet first. Doing so gave me enough slack to connect the heating element to the second wire. After that I just reconnected the wire to the outlet connection and put the back panel back on!

About 45 minutes in total time. Most of which was figuring out the approach to getting enough slack to connect the second wire and working around the oven door which restricted my movement.

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.

This oven is 2 years old and the element should not have broken like it did. GE is doing something wrong in the making of their ovens.
My husband took out the old broken element and attached the new one.
