This six inch chrome drip bowl is intended for use with rolled terminal style plug in surface element units.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
Sold individually. This part is located beneath the element and catches any spills.
Removed the burner elements, removed and disposed of old drip pans, cleaned the area, relaced with new drip pans and replaced the burner elements. Verified all burners were level - good as the day it was new!

I pulled off the electtic burners ( the coiled part that heats) and replaced the the drip bowls . I cleaned the knobs so well the numbers came off 2 so I replaced them as well
Most trainable people can pull out the heating elements and replace the Drip Bowls. The great thing about the ordered drip bowls was that they FIT! Most drip bowls sold as easy replacements for GE or Hotpoint appliances do not fit and wobble the heating element or drip bowls. If not fitting correctly, the tenant usually destroys the heating element and the drip bowl.
First, I used the PatrSelect website, which has great prices, and has helpful diagrams. Once I had all the parts, I worked with my wife to turn off the power at our home junction box. Next, I lifted off the cover over the control area of this range. I removed four nuts to lift out the panel that holds the four controls and the fan switch. I removed the wires from the broken controls, removed the two screws holding each control in place, then screwed the new ones in place. I would recommend trimming the posts on the controls to the correct size before screwing them in place, because it is easier to grip them and not bend them when they are not mounted. I reconnected the wires and replaced the panel. For the "receptacle", I followed the instructions provided regarding cutting the wire and placing the wire nut and heat shrink tubing. I opened the unit that houses the burners to get easy access.
Threw away old drip bowls, cleaned the top of the range, put on new bowls! So easy, a cave man could do it! All kidding aside, took knobs off and soaked them in hot soapy water for a while, cleaned part of stove behind knobs, cleaned under the burners, put it all back together, and while it doesn't look a new stove because it's at least 20 yrs old, looks 100% better. I think I can live with it for a while until I get brave enough to remodel my kitchen. Soooooo scary.....
Removed burner from each one. removed drip bowl. Inserted new bowl. Replaced burner. Excellent help from order people so I got the correct bowl was irreplacable.
