Replacing the backing element in our oven.

  • Customer: Richard from Billings, MT

The element ignited and burnt like a sparkler. I unscrewed the bolt/screws holding it in, and pulled like I had on older models. The clips holding it didn't come undone, but the wires hit the side causing a huge flash. It was still hot, even though it wasn't turned on. You need to unplug the oven, or turn off the breaker. I unplugged and took the back panel running down the middle off (4 screws), and undid the clips. Putting the new one back in was easy. Insert the element ends through their places inside the oven. Screw them in place. Hook the wire clips on in back, and replace the back panel. Installation took less than 5 minutes.

Burned lower heating element

Being that the rest of the stove was functioning fine, it was still plugged into the electrical outlet, after unplugging the range, I used a nutdriver and and removed the back panel exposing the two electrical clips on the old heating element. After unplugging the two electrical clips, I removed the two screws that secure the heating element to the back of the inside of the range. Once the screws were removed, the heating element came right out. I inserted the new element, installed the two screws previously removed, plugged the two electrical clips on the back of the heating element, re installed the back panel, plugged the range in and cooked lasagna. Total repair time was 12 minutes.

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.

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!

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!!
