Bake element stopped heating.

I removed one screw easily. The other screw was difficult to remove without stripping it. I sprayed WD 40 and let it sit overnight. The next day, my husband sprayed it again and after trying several different size Phillips screwdrivers, he got the second screw out. He easily removed the element and then the two wires from it. He attached the two wires and replaced the screws. We tested it and it worked. The best part is: my husband scrubbed the oven before putting all the parts back!

my wife removed two screws and removed clips with pliers. We ordered part (2 days) it was fast. Installed in less than 5 min. and I only have one arm. We tried to find part locally but with no model # the parts houses could not find it. We found it on your site in less than 10 min. Your graphs and photos made it super easy. Will pass along your site to others. Thanks for being so helpful.

After trying to set the bake temp after the self cleaning, it would not heat up. I Googled the model number,selected your link because it mentioned my symptom,and said usually it is the temp sensor in the oven that gets damaged by the high self cleaning heat. Your site had a place to enter my model number. You provided a great exploded view of the parts, showing me my sensor,then you provided the part number of the kit i needed,and filled out the order form with payment method. Less than a week later I got my part with instructions. Your video showed me the two screws I remove from the front ,and I pulled the old part out and uplugged it's connector. Replacement was easy, and oven was fixed! Thank you for a great site! You held my hand through it all!

Removed frame to cabinet lag screws
Slid oven out of cabinet (required because wire harness could not be pulled through inside of oven)
Removed two screws holding attaching sensor inside oven
Uncoupled wire harness
Installed new sensor in reverse order

Unfortunately, neither the new bake element or sensor fixed the problem, so I just ordered the more expensive control board -- hope that does it.

After cleaning, F1-1 error flashed and neither oven worked

First I called a repairman and left a message. That was 3 weeks ago. So, I 'googled' the error message and determined what part I thought I needed. Ordered the part on Wednesday evening and it was there when I got home from work on Friday. I unpacked the part, got a phillips screwdriver and then watched the repair video on your website. About 20 minutes later I pushed my stove back in place and the flashing said 'set time'. Then I checked both ovens, and have since used both, and everything works!!

Parts no longer available so we went to several appliance stores and measured racks. We found a jenair model had racks that measured correctly got the model number and ordered the racks. There working great and now the oven looks like new. Our kitchen is a restored 1956 GE metal kitchen in Cadilac pink. Thanks guys for the fast service and very resonsble price. Was also very happy to find the racks were made in USA.

Replaced the heating element

It would have been a very easy job if the one wire had not fallen inot the back. I could not reach it and fried to figure out how to get in the back to no avail. Finally I took a piece of wire coat hangerm and bent it and then fished it out. The packing around the hole compressed while I was trying to get the wire and I thought I wpuld have to replace it, but overnight it resumed its original size. It should have probably taken less than thirty minutes.

The hardest part was taking out original light bulb because screws on shield where hard to unscrew after all this years . The old bulb vent out leaving neck in socket. It took narrow electrical pliers to get neck out .The generic appliance bulb did not fit and had aluminum neck ,not recommended for brass sockets in ovens.Putting new light bulb in was not the problem.

old bulb fused into old socket.
