First and foremost...I turned the power off at the breaker box..double checked to make sure oven light did not come on. (The breaker box could be mis-numbered) Got a flashlight and unscrewed the plate holding the element to oven wall. I was careful disconnecting the old element per the advice of another commenter and connected the new. Turned on the power and Voila! I was cooking with electric again. I was recently widowed and if it can break it has around here. I've not only become an electrician (oven element) but a plumber, carpenter and roofer. I love the comment page and should I need more parts (and I probably will)I will always use PartsSelect. Oh, and they said I would receive my part in 1.8 days....it arrived in less than 24 hours...Thanks PartsSelect and all their commenters..

Our broiler element wasn't working.

  • Customer: Donna from Novi MI
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

We unscrewed the element easily enough, but had a hard time disconnecting the prongs. Once we did, we had to use a thin screwdriver to open the clamps to fit the new prongs into them. After all was accomplished and we switched on the breaker the broiler still didn't work. Either we did something wrong or the element wasn't the problem. We haven't decided our next move yet; whether to get a repairman in or buy a new oven. It's a pretty old oven/range.

I watched a video of someone replacing a bake element. Told my husband about the video. The person said on video that the hardest part was taking out the original screws and be careful to not let the wires that the unit hooked to to slide back into the insulation. Husband said that everything went easy and it worked. Thanks for being so prompt in sending the part. I have already told others about PartSelect and how easy it was to find parts for all kinds of appliances.

I diagnosed the problem as a burned out element. Received the part the next day (very quick service) My husband replaced the old element with the new. My broiler still doesn't work. I don't blame the company, my diagnoses was wrong. I have called the appliance repairman and it will probably be an expensive fix.

Turned off power. Removed the old bake element, cleaned inside oven, and eliminated food particle build-up in the corners and bottom surface of the oven. Then, I installed the new element by sliding the wire connectors over the wiring connections attached to the bake element and re-screwed the new mounting screws. Post-installation and check: Element quickly warms up to 2 minutes faster than before. Saving power and my time in cooking.

Simply remove screws from plate attached to oven then tug on element. You should see that the element is attached to two wires with srews as well, remove those. Then reattach the element with the screws you just removed.

Asked a local repairman to fix it. I saved money(saved $20.00) by ordering the broiler element from GE part select via customer service agent. The agent was informative and helpful. The part arrived the next day even with regular shipping cost. Impressed with the GE part select. Will use the company again.

Broil Element Stopped Heating

  • Customer: Meagan from Weston FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The broil element was easy to replace. Start by either unplugging the unit from the wall or turning the circuit breaker off. I started by removing the two screws that hold it in the back. There was a support bar attached to the top with two screws also. After removing all screws, gently pull the element forward exposing the two wires. Make note of which wire goes to which terminal. I also clipped a clothes pin to each wire to prevent them from falling back through the hole. Disconnect the two wires and reconnect to the new element. Reattach all screws and you're done.
