This 6 inch high rise burner trim ring is intended for use with detached style low rise tilt lock surface mount burners on ranges.
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

It was so easy to find the correct items on your web site and they arrived in a very timely manner. Perfict fit. Now I know how to get parts when I need them.
I have tilt up burners on my Range, and decided to replace one that have finally rusted out the part that holds it in place. Repair was easy- installed according to the enclosed instructions. Parts arrived in good condition and very timely. A+
Simple replacement on an old "built in" range in good condition but drip pans and trim rings soiled beyond cleaning. Stove top, although 20+ years old, now looks like new. So glad to find parts were still available as "universal" replacement parts for the 8 inch burner do not fit. Delivered to my door in days.
The replacement drip bowl and trim ring fit perfectly.
replace trim rings with the new shiny ones I got from parts select. Thank you!
Order special parts from PartSelect. Electric Burner was rare 3 level 4,6 8 inch selectable. Raise burner unit on hinge. Place drip pan, then trim ring under burner. Lower burner.
Just replaced drip pans and rings on stove
After receiving parts, was getting rims unpackaged and removing the old rims, then and installing the new ones. Extremely easy to do. No tools needed
simply lifted the heat coil and slid the rings off and lifted the drip pans off. Vacumed the bottom underneath the old pans. Cleaned the grease off around the stove where the rings sat. Let it dry and added the new rings and pans. Looks like it did 30 years ago.......let them try making a stove last that long today !! Make sure the power is OFF at the electrical box.
All I had to do was remove old drip pans and insert the new ones. What a huge difference it made. It made my stove look so much newer.
Too easy to describe. Just lifted out the old rings and popped in the new ones. PartSelect is my go-to source for appliance parts both for my home and my job as maintenance man for residential group homes in my area. Website is easy to use, prices are good, shipping is always surprisingly fast. Thank you.
lift stove eyes and replace
I lifted the coils, removed the old bibs and replaced them with the new bibs.
