This tilt lock hinge mounted surface element kit includes a 6 inch, three wire, 1350 watt surface element, and a terminal block with all three-wire units. These high rise elements do not come with an attached trim ring.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First I shut the power off to the stove, then I lifted the burner and removed the screw that holds the hinge to the stove surface. Then gently I pulled the element out of the stove, exposing the wire connection (the ceramic block, the connection is samwiched between.) Then I took my screw driver and popped off one side of the clamped block(there is 2), then removed the top piece of the ceramic. Taking note of wire placment. Carefully used my socket wrench to remove screws that hold the 3 wires from the old element. Placed the new element in and screwed the wires on and placed the top ceramic piece back on. ( making sure wires are clear of pinching) Then push the clamps back on. Push wire connection(block) back in the stove top and screw on the hinge that holds it to the stove. I turned the power back on and now they are like new. This was very easy.

I did the repairs by first shutting down the power and then checking with a tic tester to make sure power was off. Removed one burner at a time by unscrewing the holding screw on the hinge and then removed the ceramic insulator cover and then disconnected the wiring. I drew a schematic for the 3 wire leads (240 volts). Unscrewed them and removed the burner. Cleaned stove top, put burner back in reverse order. Very easy project. Stove top looks as good as it did when it was new.
It took about 20 min to flip the breaker off and remove the 2 hinge screws and disassemble the 3 wires on each burner and reattach same to new burners. All the hardware was included with the parts went together fast. Flip the breaker back on and everything works perfect.Parts Select was the only place I could find replacement parts for such an old cooktop.Thanks, Jerry
I removed the screw holding the tilt-lock hinge, then removed the insulator brackets and unscrewed the wire terminals. Units come with new insulators, brackets, terminal screws & hinge screw. This is a very straightforward operation.
First I made sure the electricity was off. Then, I flipped the burner up, and loosened the screwon the hinge. This allowed the burner to extend onto the cook surface. After loosening the clips holding the ceramic insulator together, the wires to the element were exposed. The wires were then transferred to the new burner element from their corresponding position on the old one. The new ceramic insulator was affixed over the wire with clips, and the hinge reattached. The chrome ring was worked over the burner, and the burner reseated in its proper cook poistion. Testing confirmed the burner to now work as new.
Transfered wires from the old burner to new burner followed the color code. Each burner takes about 10 min. to replace.Part select thank you for the great service you are providing.Mory
