My heating element on the bottom of the stove burned out.

I unscrewed the 2 screws that held in the element, pulled it out a little, disconnected the 2 wires, got the new element out of the box, connected the two wires on the new element, put the screws back in and it was done! Very easy.

While making supper, we realized the bottom heating element wasn't working.

We decided to go "on line" to see if there was any way to fix the stove ourselves and found the Part Select website. After entering the model number for the stove, we were able to find the heating element. We ordered it and received it two days later! We saved money and time. Thank you!

Oven heat element burned out

When the new element arrived I turned off the power to the stove, opened the oven, removed the 2 racks inside and took the 2 screws out of the old element. I slowly pulled it toward the oven door to expose the wires attached to it and was able to slip one wire off the old element and hold it with vice grips so it wouldn't slip back into the stove. Unfortunately the other wire slipped off the element on it's own and immediately went back inside the stove. Our stove is a slide in so, after trying to fish out the wire for about 5 minutes with an ice pick, I gave up and slid the stove out, turned it sideways and removed the 7 screws holding the vertical center cover on the stove back. When I removed the cover the wiring was exposed so I re-routed the lost wire to give me some slack and then pushed it back through the hole into the oven. I then opened the oven door, slipped both wires onto the new element, reattached the element to the oven wall with the 2 screws and turned the power on and checked the new element. I then closed the oven, reattached the back plate and slid the stove back into place. Oh, and while it was out I took the opportunity to clean the area where it sits. All in all it was a simple job, just a little time consuming.

Heating coil in the oven shorted out

Found video on utube, bought replacement part. Took old heating coil out (two screws and two wire clips) inserted and installed new coil. The only issue is the oven door made for a longer awkward reach.

Lower bake element burned out

first shut the breaker to range oven off at the AC panel. find the corect size Nutdriver for the two small screws that mount the Bake Element to back of the oven wall. Simpley remove both of the small screws, and then carefully pull the Bake Element out from the wall of the oven. Be very careful not to pull element too hard or too quickley so the elements wires do not pull off and fall behind into the oven wall insulation. Once the element has been pulled out just far enouph, clip both of the elements power wires with a clothes pin to keep them from falling behind into the oven wall insulation. Carefully remove both of the element power wires by gently pulling them lose from the old element. Remove the old element and disgard as needed. Place the new element in the oven and re-attach both of the elements power wires to the new element as required. Carefully push the new element back into the two small oven wall holes as required. Re-attach the two small oven wall screws with a Nutdriver. Turn the Oven range power breaker back on at the AC power panel. Turn the oven heat setting on to pre-heat and test your new Bake Element to make sure that everything is working. After the oven has pre-heated and and you have verified that the new Bake Element is corectly in place nad properly working turn the oven off. The installation is now complete and you are ready to enjoy using your General Electric oven! Its Easy-Peasy folks!

Oven element burned out

This was my first attempt at an appliance repair. The job did nit look too difficult so I thought I would give it a try. The most important thing I can recommend is to have some type of clips to hold the wires after disconnecting the old element. As soon as you disconnect the wire, it retracts into the insulation. My job became more difficult and required pulling out the stove, removing the rear panel, and now needing a second person to push the wires back Into the oven. What should have been a 15 minute job now was a 30 minute procedure. Keep in mind that when you pull a stove out you now have to get the cleaning supplies out also. Word to the wise:USE THOSE PLASTIC SNACK BAG CLIPS! To hold the end of the wires.

Burnt out oven baking element

First of all i ordered the part and recieved it the following day, thank you PartSelect. :) Installation was a breeze. I just turned off the main circuit breaker then pulled the range out from its position between the countertops. I used an adjustable wrench to remove two small bolts holding the baking element in place, carefully pulled out the element to expose the two wires, disconnected them and connected the new element, put the backplate bolts back in turned on the main breaker and the oven worked as good as new.

The oven lower heating element was burned out.

I removed the racks and oven door. I used a socket to remove the screws that secured the element. I pulled the element out to gain access to the wire connectors and used pliers to remove the wires from their connectors to the burned out element. I installed the new element by using the pliers to secure the wire connectors to the element and then installed the element with the socket thus securing the element with the screws.
