I turned the breaker off to the stove and moved it away from the wall. I then removed the center cover off the back of the stove and exposed the wires connected to the bake element. I removed the wires from the bake element and then opened the oven and removed the two bolts holding the element onto the back wall of the oven. I discarded the old element and replaced it with the new first bolting the new in , then connected the two wires and replaced the rear cover. Turned on the power and made a cake.
So easy. Took extra time so the wife would think it was harder. Just read the other reviews for instructions. Didn't have an issue with the wires pulling back into the oven though I did have my "clips" ready.
Really easy even i could do it , it was a little fiddly and the wires disappeared into the back of the oven , i easily removed the rear panel and pushed the wires back thru and connected them , turned the breaker back on and sparks !!removed the rear panel again in 2 mins and saw that the wires were touching the oven frame and had shorted out , it wasnt a problem moved them slightly, reconnected them to the element tightened them up , put breaker on and Done , took about 45 mins but i could of been done in 30 with a little more care in the beginning of the job EASY !
This was the second repair on this stove. It is less than 2 years old. I won't buy an other GE stove as long as I live. The first repair was replacing the burner recepticles. They just melted away. This time the bake element blew a hole in it causing flames to shoot from it. It was easy to get the right parts, but I only worry what will go next. How long will the replacement parts last? Oh boy!
First I unplugged the stove. Then I removed the two screws inside the oven to remove the heating element. For safety purposes I removed the back panel from the stove also to get a complete view of what I was getting into. That was just 5 more screws and the panel came off and exposed what the heating element was plugged into. Very easy to unplug and reconnect, install the back panel then install the two screws for the heating element and it works just fine.
First, my husband removed the two screws that hold in the element. Unfortunately, my GE Spectra oven had extremely short wires. That was the only thing that made it somewhat difficult. So, he pulled the element out as far as he safely could, replaced it with the new one. No problem! As I said, the only thing that made it difficult was the short wires supplied by GE. The part came from PartSelect.com with no problems. I would definitely use this website again to order parts.
After reading about possible losses of the wire leads, I put together a simple solution. First, turned off the breaker, then pulled the grates out for full access.Using a nutdriver on the hex-head screws holding the backing plate to the oven wall, I removed the screws, then gently lifted and pulled the element and it's attached wire leads out of the insulated rear of the oven.Attach a plastic clothespin to each lead above the spring clip attaching the lead to the element so the springy wire would not tend to pull back into the difficult-to-access insulated area "behind the wall" because that would be a real pain to get at.With nothing other than fingers, the spring clips can then be removed from the tabs on the element, the old piece removed, the new element set in place and quickly re-connected. No Problem!
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.
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!
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.
Simply unplugged the burned out unit and replaced it with the new one from Part Select. Very satisfied with service. Shipping was to be in 3-5 days and I received it next day.
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.
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!
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.
