This kit includes an 8", three wire, 2450W surface element. This low rise element has an attached trim ring, and a terminal block with all three-wire units.
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.

The hardest thing was finding the part to order! The GE Cooktop is from 1957 when the house was built. I followed the instructions that came with it. After seeing where the screw on hinge was supposed to be, I cleaned away the caked grease and finally saw the screw. I had to use a nut driver to remove it since it didn't have a slot for a screwdriver. Once that screw was out, the rest was easy. Before disconnecting any wires, I laid the new and old parts beside each other and drew a diagram showing where each wire (red, black & white) connected. It was a bit scary stripping the wires since they were old and fragile. It said to bend them into a "U" and solder but I didn't have soldering skill or equipment so I just tightened the screws holding the wires carefully. The connections are all nicely isolated in the bakelite insulator so it didn't seem cruicial. After working the new unit into place and turning on the power (at the circuit breaker), the burner worked perfectly. The replacement part looked exactly like the original. I was so amazed to be able to obtain the replacement burner after all these years! Thank-you PartsSelect!
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.
Raise burner high enough to remove screw located on hinge between coils. Remove screw completely and lift-out burner and ceramic block with wire connections. Remove the wires from the connector block and strip-back the ends of both about 3/4". Make connections per the diagram and then assemble the ceramic blocks around the connection in a sandwiched fashion and secure the halves with the clips provided.Now sit the burner down into place. An extra pair of hands is good here to hold the chrome trim ring and the coil up directly opposite the hinge. Then, peek under the coil and using fingertips, get the screw provided started in the hinge bracket and run this screw up snugly. A 1/4" nut driver makes this part easier, but a screwdriver will get it done.That's it. Just flip the breaker to restore power and cross your fingers. A fairly easy job that took about 40 minutes to do both 8" elements The potentially frustrating parts are the ceramic terminal block assembly and replacing the hinge screw, but a job that's very doable. Oh, don't forget to slip the drip pans back in.
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
Teh instillation was a simple matter of removing the old burners and replacing them with the new ones. Removal required the screw connector on each burner ring to be loosened and the reverse done when the new one was installed. The hardest part was finding the correct burners since the Model number of the stove was not in anyones file. This web site provided adequate pictures of the part to permit identification of the likely part to order. Thanks.
First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the four wires The element i request was 3 elements and i received two element but it was very easy i connect only the 3 wires.
It was pretty easy. I just had to remove two screws, remove old element, connect new element and put screws back on. For the burners all you had to do was disconnect old one and reconnect new ones. The parts even included new ceramic covers for the wires.
This part has the trim ring attached. My old element had the trim rim detached. This new part still fit my stove top and works fine.
First I removed the screw that holds the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the three wires. Then I just had to do it in reverse. EASY!
I unscrewed the old burner from the stove, took off the three wire to the heating element marking down where each colored wire went, taped off the exposed wires, ordered the new burner, and waited for it to arrive. When it got here, I installed it, and believe it or not, the new burner works just fine!. End of exciting repair story.
Took the old part off and marked the wiring for easy replacing and looked all over town and no part to match, so I went to the Internet and put in 8" burner and luckily found your website. The part was perfect and saved me alot of time doing more research for the part. Thank you for the quick shipment and good correspondence.I will definitely use you again for parts and tell my friends about your website too.
Remove the old element by removing one screw and inserted new element and replaced the screw.
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
