Turned off circuit to oven. Unscrewed two screws holding element in place at back oven wall, pulled out old element and loosened nuts holding it to wiring. Discarded old element. Put new element in place and re-attached nuts to wiring (very simple). Pushed back into place and replaced screws to hold plate to back of oven wall. Turned circuit back on and put oven on to bake to test -- voila, success! Thank you PartSelect.com!

Bake element was getting old, thin and burning hotter in various spots. Ordered new part. Upon arrival, turned off power in the fuse box, 2 screws removed the old bake element from wall of oven. 2 more screws disconnected the power supply. Installed new part, reconnected all 4 screws and turned power back on. Entire job took 15-30 minutes, extremely easy.

Turned off power to oven and removed screws attaching element to back of oven with a socket wrench. After removing the screws, I pulled element out about six inches and used a screw driver to remove the screws that attached the two electrical wires to the end prongs of the element. After removing old element, I simply reversed the process to install the new element.

First of all I would like to praise PartSelect.
I ordered the part Friday afternoon and it was delivered the next day (Saturday) I couldn't believe it, because I chose the cheapest shipping, probably had something to do with it coming from in state.
First MAKE SURE BREAKER IS OFF, unscrew the old element from the inside of the oven and pulled it out and then unscrew the connection piece,(make sure wires don't fall back through hole once disconnected) re-screwed the new element to the connection pushed it back through the hole and then re-screwed the mount to the inside of the oven. It was that simple by far the easiest home repair I have ever done and I'm a 52 year old women.
Praying before always helps too.

I remove the back plate, pull out the wires, and unscrew the screws and put the new part. The problem that I had was reaching to the back of the oven to remove the screws. Other than that it was very simple.

Broiler element had flared up and separated

  • Customer: Mark from Richmond VA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
Simple repair that was complicated by not being able to remove the oven door, leaving a long reach to the element connections in the back of the oven. Other than the accessibility issue, the repair is easy. Remove two scews, pull the element out about 3 inches to access and unscrew the screws holding the wires to the element. Then reverse the process with the new element. But, because of the long reach, there were alot of dropped screws and cussing.

Still need an other nut to keep broiler support inplcae. Support bar did not come with new screws so I must locate one new one.

I took out the old broiler support bar, but it was being held by one screw. I did install the new bar with one screw, but I need to obtain a second screw. I still have not located a second screw, but it is inplace.

Burned out element

Removed two screws that held the element flange onto the back of the oven, then two more little screws that held the element tips to the wires in back. Installed in the reverse sequence in about 10 minutes. A whole lot cheaper than calling a repairman! Thanks, the PartSelect customer service lady was a great help in getting me the right part for a 20 year old oven too.

Broken element

Removed the two screws that held the element in place. Pulled the unit out a few inches to get at the bolted wires. The hard part is reaching in the oven using bifocal lenses and trying to block out the oven light. Getting past that obstacle, the rest went very well.

Broiler unit burned out

  • Customer: Phillip from Charlotte NC
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the unit easily with anut driver, however the unit also supported the thermo-link. I had to use the hack saw to relieve a small opening for the thermo-link to pass through. No real problem. Then a few holes to be drilled to attach the 'link' to the base of the broiler unit.

BUT-I went into the website listed on the box. GEAppliances.com Guess what? Their price was twice yours!!
