CustomerKenneth from Newport OR

The old oven element burned in two.

After removing the screws holding the element in I disconnected the wires and attached alligator clips to the wires to keep them from pulling back inside the holes. I would have had to pull the stove out and removed some covers if they disappeared through the holes. After getting the part number off of the old element, I ordered a new element from Partselect.com and received the new one in less the a week. Reinstalling the new element took about 5 minutes.

CustomerJohn from Wetumpka AL

Oven would not heat up

Took out the hexagon screws, used pliers to pull the connecting ends apart, slid in the new element in to the connecting slots, reattached to screws, turned on the oven to see if it would heat up and it did. It was really easy. I had waited for a week to get the part from my local Sears parts house. You sent it out and I had it in 3 days. They still don't have the part. Thanks so much.

Customerkatie from jacksonville FL

Oven wouldn't heat

I read the "easy to repair" story after I ordered my part and I felt like I coud do this on my own. (Female not much experience in repairs) I shut off circuit breaker...proceeded to take out element...could not get it to easiler come off...so I made the mistake of cutting the wire because it looked like that's what I needed to do. WORD TO THE WISE...there are clamps that actually pull off the element..just need to pull a little. So my "easy" project was made more difficult because I didn't know this up front. Otherwise it would have been a breeze. I had to go to the hardware store and but new clamps and attach to the cut wire. Good news is my oven is now working and Parts.com was fast, cheaper than the GE parts place and great service.

CustomerJimmy E from Ridgecrest CA

Half of the bake element had burned out and oven would not stop heating.

After removing the racks from the oven and reading the instructions, I looked at the connections and confirmed they were the same. i got the nutdriver, carefully unscrewed the plates that connected to the back of the oven and carefully pulled the wires out. I pulled the connectors of the old element out of the wires. Plugged the new bake element connectors into the wires, moved the wires back into the space behind the oven, screwed on the plates to keep the element in place, and tested the oven. Worked great!!!!! Saved a lot of money.

Bake element burned out

Pulled plug from wall socket. Checked internet for repair parts. Found part at Part Select as well as at dealer. Best price, Parts Select. Ordered and received two days later. After removing screws attaching burner to rear panel, tried pulling out old burner. Had to pull appliance from the wall to access connectors. Remover wire harness cover (one screw). Detached old burner (2 slide clips) and installed new. 20 minutes, at most.

CustomerLinda from Andover NJ

Oven bake element sparked & on fire.

First turned off the power going to the oven. Then removed the two screws that hold the element in place. When we pulled the element out of the back of the oven, we used 2 clothes pins to make sure the wire wouldn't retrack into the back of the oven wall. Then removed the element, put in the new element, attached the two wires and inserted into the holes. Last tightened the screws to the oven wall through the back plate. It was so easy! When we removed the old element, it broke in two pieces! I placed my order one afternoon, and the next day the order was there at my doorstep delivered by the FedEx man. Terrific service! I have recommended PartSelect.com to everyone I know! Thank you.

The bottom stove element broke in several places

I just followed the directions in the video. Did exactly what it said to do and had no problems whatsoever. In fact, repairing this element made the timer start beeping again and actually made the oven cook better.
