I am a recently divorced mom who is too proud to ask for help. When I received the part I took the time to read all of the previous posts. I did exactly as many people suggested: pull the oven out, unplug, clean up since you're back there anyway, used the nut driver to remove the metal plate in back and unscrew the two in the oven, carefully unclipped the electodes from the old element with the needle nose, remove the old element, insert the new element, reinsert the electodes , tighten all nut both in the oven and the large metal plate in back , plug back in, push the oven back in place. I reset the clock and also did what one person mentioned which was to turn the oven on and let heat up for about 20 minutes to burn off any of the manufacture coatings that were on the new element. This did not even take me 15 minutes! I was so proud of myself, I told anyone who would listen! Thank you to all of the men and women who took the time to detail what to do, you made my first repair as a single mom awesome!!

First, I read what other customers posted on this site about how to change the element. =)I didn't have a nutdriver so I used a pair of pliers instead. They worked fine.Pulled the stove away from the wall, unplugged it, removed the 4 small nuts holding the small plate over the back of the element connections, slid the connectors off the element prongs, removed baking racks from oven, removed 3 screws holding the element in place, slid element out. To put the element in I simply did the same thing except in reverse order. The entire process was so easy and only took minutes to complete! However, like another poster, I took the opportunity to clean my oven before putting in the new element. The best part of dealing with partselect....the element only cost me $51 vs GE site price of $91, Plus the element arrived the morning after I had placed the order! Thank you partselect! In gratitude, I posted my happy experience and a link to this site on my facebook! Thanks for everything!
Removed back cover to look at connectionswhich were a push on type connector. pulled offconnectors. there is insulation around elementRemoved old element, using a nut driver from inside oven. Installed the new element the same way.Reinstalling the connectors, reinstalled the back. less than 10 min. Was very easy !
1) unplug range (range is 220volts, please be careful)2) remove back panel3) unplug wires from bake element4) remove 2 5/16 bolts from mounting braket inside oven5) pull out broken element6) reverse steps to install new element7) turn on oven and observe new element for proper operation.
My baking element burned out after being exposed to grease and other remnants of past feasts. After some research the repair seemed straight forward so I figured I'd give it a shot. Overall it's fairly simple, though there are some things to watch out for.I didn't remove my oven's door, which restricted my movement somewhat. After removing the bolts I was able to easily remove the old heating element and expose the two connecting wires. One wire had much more slack than the other. I connected the wire with more slack first. However, I'm somewhat uncoordinated and doing so caused the other wire to retract within the unit. I had to pull out my stove and remove the back panel, which was easy. The retracted wire was easy to find, but there was no slack available through the back access either. I actually had to unscrew the wire from the thing that is connected to the wire that plugs in to the outlet first. Doing so gave me enough slack to connect the heating element to the second wire. After that I just reconnected the wire to the outlet connection and put the back panel back on! About 45 minutes in total time. Most of which was figuring out the approach to getting enough slack to connect the second wire and working around the oven door which restricted my movement.
impossible to repair, I would need to dis-assemble at least half of every part of the stove to get to where the element plugs in.
I checked prices on the internet and found your price the cheapest and ordered the part on a holiday. The part arrived in two days and was installed and back to work pronto. Having worked in sales at Caterpillar Inc for a lifetime, I know how important quick delivery and short downtime is to our customers and you came through for me. I am satisfied with my experience dealing with your company.
I shut off power at electrical box. Then I removed 4 screws on back to expose connector enclosed in insulation.. It was not necessary as when I removed 2 screws in oven and pulled element out , the element came out far enough to disconnect easily and slip the element into electrical unit.15 minutes start to finish..
This oven is 2 years old and the element should not have broken like it did. GE is doing something wrong in the making of their ovens.My husband took out the old broken element and attached the new one.
Turned breaker off to stove, removed two wire shelves, 1/4" nut driver to remove two screws, pulled wires and wire ends into oven area. Used long nose pliers to pull female clips off male clips on element. re-install female clips on wire to new element clips. slid wire and element ends back through opening in oven and re-attached element to back wall with screws and 1/4" nut driver. Turned breakers back on, turn oven switch on, element heat, replaced wire shelves, job complete, less than 15 minutes.
I removed the two screws in the oven and then pulled the stove out to remove the center back panel. This was easy to do once I found the right sized socket. Next I removed the two electric connections from the broken baking element and removed it from the oven. After I cleaned the oven it only took a couple of minutes to install the new baking element (connected the two electric connectors, screwed the two screws in the back of the oven, and replaced the back center panel). After that I plugged the oven in and tested the oven and it worked perfectly. Thanks for getting my new baking element to me so fast.
I ended up having to re-move the back panel on the stove to access one of the wires, so that I could pull the hot wire back through the inside of the oven. The connection to the bake element was then made simple and easy. My time lost was removing the back panel and re-installation. I can not complain about the repair problem. I saved at least a couple hundred bucks. So that's my story. Thanks for the response in expediting my order of the exact bake element.
It was so eazy that I didn't have to ask my husband how to do it.
I removed the old element and replaced it with the one that I ordered from Parts Select after reading your easy to follow instructions. I'm a 62 year old woman and it really was quite easy. Just make sure all electric sources are disconnected the breaker is off and follow the directions. The repairman would have charged me a minimum of $225. I did it my self for $60.00.
I looked up what was wrong on line. Found the problem and the solution. Put the model number in and found the heating coil I needed. I got the part in 2 days with standard delivery. Easily took the coil out by taking the back off the oven, disconnecting the old heating element which was attached by two simple clips that I just needed to pull apart. Put the heating element that I received in just as I had pulled the old part out. Put the cover back on. It was very very simple and I am proud of myself that I didnt just opt calling a repairman out and took the time to research it myself. Fixed oven for under $60!
