DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS REPAIR UNTIL THE RANGE IS UNPLUGGED AND THE CIRCUIT BREAKER IS OFF!!!!!!

Very easy repair, but, either there is a minor amount of current flowing through the element at all times, or the off switch wasn't working when I started. didn't turn the breaker off, after I removed the nuts, as I was pulling the element to reveal the terminals, the terminals arc'd on the oven wall. BIG SPARKS!

After I turned the breaker off and started again. No problems.

I turned off the breaker to the range. I removed 5 screws holding the control knob carriage. I loosened the 2 screws that hold the control knob to the carriage. I removed each wire 1 at a time from the old control knob and hooked them up to the new one. I replaced all the screws and turned on the breaker.

All it took to repair was to plug in the new heating elements. The REAL story is the difference in price. I went to a parts center first and the two elements were going to cost me $115! I got them at PartSelect for half the price. And they came in the same sealed GE parts bag that Sears had. Can't beat a good thing!

Replace oven door handle

I first removed oven glass panel from frame by removing three screws which secured it to the frame. I then removed the spacer and handle mounts with a 1/4 inch nut driver. This is the only tool that worked for the application. Using an oen wrench or a rachet without a long extension would have taken much more time. Then reattached new handle using existing screws and resecured oven dorr glass to the frame.

One thing to look at is the old handle bracket vs. new bracket. The old bracket had metal threaded inserts to secure the mounting screws. The new handle is all plastic. This said, the existing screws might not work for the application and may split the plastic mounting bracket if it is over tightened. In my case they worked fine but, it is just something to think about.

Surface Burners were very slow.

Burned out Broiler Element Needed Replacing

  • Customer: Donna from Milton MA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 4 of 5 people found this instruction helpful
I used a socket set to remove broiler element. It was stiff after so many years, but no problem. All was going well until I pulled too hard on the old element(I'd recommend jiggling if stuck, not yanking) & 1 of the 2 connectors pulled loose & fell behind the back. After my initial panic, I summoned my courage, unscrewed the coverings in the upper back of the stove, found the lost connection, pushed the new element ends through the holes from inside the oven (easiest way to hook it up at this point), plugged it in from the back, pushed it back thru into place inside the oven, reattached everything (front & back), & it worked PERFECTLY! Had I not made a mess of it, it would have taken approx. 5-10 minutes. As it was, it took approx. 15 minutes. EASY!

pulled range out, unplugged unit, took out 7 screws, unplugged the elements, reinstalled elements, replugged, and completed with the 7 screws back in place. The 30 minute time was replacing both the broiler and bake elements. The parts were also delivered in a very timely manner. Could not have been more pleased and was very cost effective.

We had been searching for burner bowls for our GE range (10+ years old) and could not find replacements for them. I found the burner bowls we needed on partselect.com . I was able to easily place the order and the burner bowls were delivered to me the next day.

Removed old hinges and installed new hinges.
Hardest part was determining that worn hinges were the cause of problem, then ordering replacements. GE website hinge on exploded view did not look like hinges I removed.Thanks to Google I got on to PartSelect.com website where excellent pictures of hinges and one-inch grid confirmed they sold exactly what I wanted for my 13-year old range, the model number of which was not even on the GE website.

Removed the old element: removed clips holding the element, unscrewed the 2 screws that hold element in place. On the back of the range, removed casing to get to the connection wires, disconnected the element then removed the element. Reversed procedure to replace.
