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!

Burned lower heating element

  • 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.

impossible to repair, I would need to dis-assemble at least half of every part of the stove to get to where the element plugs in.
