Our oven element arced, melted and caused a 1 hour heat cycle to reach 200 degrees. I looked online to replace the part, but my oven is from 1987. The part from Part Select matched (I triple checked) and hoped it would work. I used a chair to hold the open oven door, instead of removing the entire door. I fastened it with duct tape and padding. Working inside the oven is hard to reach, so I knew I would lean on the door. I set up a Craftsman work halogen work light to allow for best visibility. a few items to note:-be sure to turn of the breaker, have extra tools handy. My replacement element had screws that would not work, I had to use my Craftsmen set up sockets to replace the new element. This is a great time to clean out your oven. Overall the job only took about 40 minutes, set up and break down included. $25 and my time was sure better than buying a new oven.-Rob

I turned off power at fuse box, removed retaining screws from the back, swapped wires from old units to new exactly, replaced the retaining screws, turned power back on and tested unit. Took less than 30 min to complete both elements. PartSelect = GREAT SERVICE, PARTS FIT, GREAT PRICE. What more could you ask. THANK YOU.

Burnt out broiler element in oven

Broiler element failed catastrophically (with light flashes) while in use (1986 GE self-clean oven/four burner stovetop). Part number embossed on element plate - very difficult to see - took digital photo while still in oven and magnified. Easy to search for part. Good price, prompt delivery. Removal of old and install new awkward because of access angle and my decreasing nimbleness, as well as oven control thermocouple and support bracket in way. But no technical difficulties. Hex head metal screws holding in element; Notched phillips metal screws holding bracing bracket (easier to put element in by removing one side of bracket). Screws difficult to remove as in much used oven 26 years, and thermocouple partially blocking socket ratchet wrench. Would have been easier with 1/4" short extension. Before detaching element, I used twist ties around the leads tied to a large plastic clip so as not to lose them into oven back. PartSelect part was made by GE, not secondary source. Perfect replacement for this old part - still available.

Opened breaker to kill power to unit and removed element. Reverse procedure and back to baking. Had no idea that i would find the correct part still in existence. Oh what a relief.

broken bake element

turned off the breaker for the oven. removed screws holding old element in place, and carefully pulled the old element out of the back. took apart the wires that came out of the insulation with a screwdriver. replaced with the new one. the first time i did this, the insulation started smoking, i believe because i didn't have the wires screwed on tight enough the first time. but yeah, the hardest part is getting the rusty screws out. i had to do some prying action.
