we of course turned off the power. the box wrench loosened the nuts. the part fit easily in our 30 year old oven. It was easy to attach the leads to the heating element--a bit awkward, but we finished the job in 20 minutes. At first, the new element looked different from the old one, but it fit perfectly. The oven is as good as "new" needs cleaning!

Took out the old (removed 2 screws holding the element to the back of the oven, disconnected the 2 screws attaching the electrical wires to the element). Decided to clean the oven with EasyOff. It took longer to spray this on, and then later wipe it up, than the repair itself. Reversed the procedure for the new element. A very simple repair - my wife is amazed!

Unscrewed the broken element from the back of the inside of the oven, then unscrewed the connected wires from the element and did the reverse with the new element. Viola.

Before touching anything, however, I made sure the oven was in the off position and also went to the house circuit breaker box and flipped OFF the appropriate circuit breaker(s). There were two - one for the element and another for the rest of the controls.

When everything was in place, I turned the power back on and turned on the oven and was cooking again. We had Prime Rib for Easter.

I (a woman) unplugged the stove, took out the screws, and unhooked the baking element. I then replaced the old screws with the newer ones, and made sure everything was nice and tight. I was a little nervous at first but everything turned out okay. I plugged the stove back up & the baking element was a bright orange and it works better than ever. The whole process took about 15-20 minutes.

The repair was a snap! Unscrew the two small bolts holding the back of the element in place. Pull out the element so that the connectors and wires are accessible. Unscrew the two wires from the element. Remove old element. Place new element in oven. Attach the two wires to the new element (two screws), place the new element in position and replace the two small bolts that were removed at the beginning. All done. Best thing? This is a 20 year old oven, GE didn't even have the part I needed. You did! Thanks.

Replace Bake Element

Incredibly easy - just make sure you have ordered the correct part. My GE oven is over 20 years old and I entered an incorrect model number into the order screen. A part that "looked" correct came up, I wisely called the customer service number where the rep pointed out my entry did not match so I carefully looked at the number again and discovered I left off a letter (plate was greased & tough to read). That then gave me the correct part number which arrived next business day. Old element easy to remove with right size nut driver taking care of the screws that were in for over 20 years. Replacing was very easy but remember the self taping screws WILL take some effort to start on the element, no sweat on the mounting plate which had slightly tilted slots which made re-attachment EASY!!
