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 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.

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!

My exact model number did not appear in the listings, nor were the oven rack measurements clearly stated in items offered. I sent an email to customer service, received an immediate response with the correct answer (re: which part would fit my oven), ordered this item, and had a shipment arrival within days. The racks are a perfect fit, and they look great. The price is less than any other site I investigated.

Oven hearting element melted in half

I had read some of the other comments about the repairs. The one that I found most useful was the one describing how short the connector was once they are removed. That isn't a joke about 3/4". My sujestion is to have tape and tape them to the back of the oven so as to not to loose them in the insulation. Once that was removed and reconnected the oven worked again like new. Even the most novice of people will find it a breeze.

Oven bake element caught fire

Took out the nuts that held the old element, removed it, put
in new element with tightened nuts...and it didn't work.
We took off the plate on the back of the stove, found the
element contacts protruding through, attached them to the
wire connectors that were close by, and it DID work. We were thankful it turned out to be easy!

Bake element Burnt Out and Needed Replacement

I am a recently divorced mom who is too proud to ask for help. When I received the part I took the time to read all of the previous posts. I did exactly as many people suggested: pull the oven out, unplug, clean up since you're back there anyway, used the nut driver to remove the metal plate in back and unscrew the two in the oven, carefully unclipped the electodes from the old element with the needle nose, remove the old element, insert the new element, reinsert the electodes , tighten all nut both in the oven and the large metal plate in back , plug back in, push the oven back in place. I reset the clock and also did what one person mentioned which was to turn the oven on and let heat up for about 20 minutes to burn off any of the manufacture coatings that were on the new element. This did not even take me 15 minutes! I was so proud of myself, I told anyone who would listen! Thank you to all of the men and women who took the time to detail what to do, you made my first repair as a single mom awesome!!
