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.

Fireworks! Element blew explosively. Loud noise, major arc. smoke and blew breaker.

First job was power off! Next step was to remove the two screws holding the element to rear wall of oven. Next is was to gently pull the wires through the hole as far as possible. At this point I needed pliers to stabilize the joint while I removed the two screws of the electrical connection. Now it was easy to clean the oven to remove arc residue. Now it was a matter of reassemble. Hardest point was getting the screws started in the electrical connections without cross threading while reaching in over the door. Use pliers to ensure you don't bend the connection wires on the element. Finally remount the element with the two original screws. This was the second element to fail. Last time I removed the oven door for better access. I think it was quicker with door on but a lot more bending and reaching.

I shut down the electric to the oven at the circuit breaker. Then i loosened the mounting screws and pulled the element from the back wall of oven. Then i disconnected the two leads to the element with a phillips screwdriver and removed element. Installation was done in reverse order.

remove/replace baking element. Relatively simple to do; however, I used the old screws/nuts as they worked better than the new ones which were included.

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!

Replace Broiler Element

After an exhaustive search of local oven dealers and big box stores, I could not find a broiler element for my aged GE stove. I did find it online at Parts Select for about 1/3 the cost from GE online parts.

Replacement was easy-- just as described in posts for this part. The 'hardest' job was getting the screws started that hold the wires to the element-- small screws and small holes-- but just required some patience. A simple, inexpensive repair that avoided my having to replace the entire stove. Thanks!

bake element was fried

husband said he would call repairman. I found you and ordered part. By the time my husband got around to calling the repairman, I was finished.
Only trouble was getting my hands to work in the small space. The cover plate was not as big as the former unit so I had to muscle it on. BUT, it was a very easy process and we saved tons of money on a repairman and a new oven/micro. THANKS.

The element in the upper oven burned out. Looked like a welder's torch when it went out.

After checking the website, I wasn't sure the part I needed was available. Called the Customer Service number and the lady was very helpful.
My part was delivered in 2 days regular UPS.

The most time took finding which breaker shut off the power to the oven. Removed two screws on the inside of the oven at the back wall. Pulled out the wiring and removed two more screws that attached the power to the element. Replaced the old element with the new one. Reversed the process. Done in 12 minutes! Very easy.

Bake element melted! Lucky it didn't start a fire!

The longest step in the fix was the walk downstairs to turn off the breaker.
1 nut driver to remove the element from the oven. 1 screwdriver to disconnect. Just as simple to re-install.

If you have this oven I seriously recommend the $30 expense to replace the element before it fails. It honestly went out with a white hot welder's torch sort of short circuit that could have burned my house down.

Removed the coverplate screws, slid the element outward, and removed the wire connecting screws. Positioned the new element to reconnect the wires, and discovered this isn't easy to see with trifocals. Succeeded after several failed attempts. Slid the new element into position, and reattached the cover plate.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires and replaced the two wires that hold the element in place. I received the part within about 36 hours after placing order.
