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!

Oven hearting element melted in half

  • Customer: Randy from Marietta OH

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.

Bake element simply snapped after 10+ years of use.

  • Customer: BRENDA from MILLVILLE NJ
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

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!!

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

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.

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..
