First of all I want to thank PartSelect. I have been looking for these parts for over 15 years. I am so happy to have found PartSelect. 1. Turn off Range 2. Turn off Breaker to the Range at your home Breaker Box. 3. Turn on Range to see if you turned off the right Breaker if so then turn Range off. 4. Lift Burner Element up. 5. Take off Silver Trim Ring and Drip Bowl. 6. With screw driver unscrew the screw that is holding the Burner Element to the Range. It is located at the base of the hing where the Burner Element attaches to the Range. 7. Pull the Burner Element out just far enough to see the entire Element where the wires attach. 8. Snap off the two silver clips from each side of the White Glass Insulation Block with a screw driver. 9. With an adjustable wrench (crescent) loosen and remove the screws holding one of the wires to the Burner Element. 10. Find the same Terminal on the new Burner Element and reattach the wire to the new Burner Element Terminal. 11. Now do the same to the remaining Terminal. 12. Install the White Glass Insulation Block over the two Terminals and secure with the two silver clips. 13. Reattach Burner Element to Range with screw. 14. Replace Silver Trim Ring and Drip Bowl. 15. Turn on Breaker and test by turning on Range. You will smell a slight electrical burn smell for a moment while the new Elements heat for the first time. This will dissipate quickly. NOTE: I used the old White Glass Insulation Block I did not use the one that came with the new Burner Element. I found the old one to be the better choice. I saved the new one in case needed at a later date. The Job to replace both the 6" & 8" Burner Elements took less than 30 Minutes. I think it took longer to write this replacement instruction. LOL Very easy...Thanks again PartSelect. Charles McAllen, Texas

unscrew hinge support screw w/nutdriver, remove ceramic insulator held on with clips around wires and base of burner, remove screws holding wires to element w/nutdriver, replaced screws on new element w/nutdriver, replaced ceramic insulator held together w/ clips, reattach hinge, replace burner lower overflow bowl and trim ring, fire it up. used pliers to hold the wires and burner element together when tightening screw so as to not bend element.
Removed single screw securing the old tilt-up burner. Removed clips on sides of clamshell ceramic terminal block with flat blade screwdriver to expose two wire connections. Removed 2 screws connecting the wires to the bad heating element. Did not use the supplied new ceramic terminal block, just reused old one. Connected new burner to wires with 2 screws. Reassembled terminal block with clips. Fastened clip with single screw to attach new unit to side of opening in range top. Tested. Done.
Read and follow the instructions. Be careful when stripping old wires to attach to new element. Fit the element to ceramic casing prior to attaching wires. If new element does not seem level after replacement heat a large pot of water. The element will expand and the weight of the pan of water will settle the element. "Physics 101"
I didn't turn the power off which was risky and dangerous, however it was very easy just removing one screw a couple of wires and installing the new one. VERY EASY!
A friend had stopped by and insisted on replacing the heating element on my 32 year old range. It took him all of 45 minutes to replace it, and now it works like a charm.
Removed the hinge mounting screw and disconnected the wiring. Hooked up the new element and replaced the mounting screw. A quick and easy $45 repair (part +shipping) that I am quite pleased with. Jim W., Marco Island, FL
replaced burner ( attached wth 2 screws )
Moved into a house built in 1976 about 7 years ago that came with an old but nice looking GE electric stove.Stove worked well until about a year ago when the switch for the 8" element became erratic. Having been raised where DIYS was SOP I didn't even consider calling for help instead, armed with the stove model number, I went to the internet (How on earth did I ever survive before internet?) and found this site where I quickly found the exploded view of my stove, IDed the switch, ordered and received it within a day or so. Fantastic turn around time!Now I've never ever worked on an electric stove so I was quite methodical in my approach. First I read the instructions (you know, when all else fails…) that came with the new switch, then I pulled the stove out, unplugged it and removed the tin back that covers the switches. I drew a diagram of the old switch orientation and which wires attached to what. Then I disconnected the wires, removed the knob and the two screws hiding behind it that hold the switch to the stove. Oops, the new switch was not identical to the old!!First: I noticed was that the stem for the knob was longer BUT they proved break off notches so that it can be shortened.Second: the stem on the old switch was a half round while the new stem was square. I tried the 'half round' knob on the square stem and it went on firmly. Nothing ventured nothing gained.Third: the terminal orientation did not match. So armed with my diagram and the instructions I made sure I knew which terminal was which (they are labeled). Once assured I knew what went where (I made notes) I installed the new switch and attached the wires (following my notes). Being an optimist I reinstalled the tin back, plugged the stove in and pushed it back into position before (with my legs, arms and fingers crossed) I tested the switch (which was not easy considering the position I was in). Lo and behold, no puff of smoke and…ta-da…everything worked as it should.All in all, upon receiving the switch the whole thing took less than 30 minutes.Recent.Less than two weeks ago one of the 6" elements fell apart, still worked but lost the supports that rest on the trim ring. Back to the internet to ordered a new element and new trim rings (just for the cosmetics). Again great service, I think I received my order the second day.Along with the element they also supply new screws plus the spring clips which hold the ceramic insulator together. There's only two wires to contend with so its easy to determine which is the left wire and which is the right. The old terminal screws were locked in pretty good so I used pliers to hold the terminal while loosening them. There's very little slack in the wires so it was a tad awkward reattaching them to the new element.I did notice that the threaded hole on the new element seemed to be slightly larger than the old. I noticed this when I used the old screws, one would tighten, the other did not so I replaced with the screws they supplied (Duh!). Well I do have an excuse, the new screws were longer which I feared would prevent the insulator from 'closing'.I probably spent the most time attaching the insulator. I found I needed to fiddle with position of the terminals before the two halves of the insulator would meet. I splayed the wires out slightly then cocked the wire ends slightly so that the wires would neatly leave the side of the insulator. I also adjusted the terminals and the bendable wire part on the element so that they were parallel to each other. ANYBODY can do this
Ordered replacement burners & oven element thru your website and installed. Burners & oven are working fine now. I have had to order an oven element in the past; about 5 - 8 years ago. I've owned this stove now for over 20 years.
