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!!

1ST..Cut power at circuit breaker.
2ND..Using nut driver, remove two sheet metal nuts.
3RD..Gently tilt element upward and pull out until wire connectors show. There are two wires with flat connectors, use the vise grips to hold the wires so they don't slip back behind the wall of the oven, if they do, you will have to pull out the range from the wall and retrieve them! ( I used two surgical hemostats for this.)
4TH..disconnect the old element, connect the new one....
5TH..Gently slide element back in place, replace sheet metal nuts.
6TH..reset circuit breaker

Burned lower heating element

  • Customer: Harold from Holly Ridge NC

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

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.

I'm so pleased with the ease of placing my order, the price, and the speed of delivery. My only challenge was figuring out the correct part to order, as I didn't have an owner's manual for the range when we moved into the house. But once I located the model # in the range's lower drawer, the website did a good job of guiding me toward the correct replacement part. In my case there was no "repair" involved; I was simply replacing a broken lower oven rack. I would definitely use this company again.

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.

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.

I shut off power at electrical box.
Then I removed 4 screws on back to expose connector enclosed in insulation.. It was not necessary as when I removed 2 screws in oven and pulled element out , the element came out far enough to disconnect easily and slip the element into electrical unit.
15 minutes start to finish..
