Once I watched the video I realized how absolutely simple the whole repair would be. The information making sure the little clips did not slip back into the oven was quite helpful. I saved a minimum of $150.00 by completing the task myself. Thank you. Joan

Daughter Could Broil BUT Could Not Bake with the Oven

  • Customer: Joe from Burlington, CT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The ~60 minute time frame resulted because of: Locating & Turning off the Circuit Breaker (40 amp) in the Electrical Panel Box to the Oven (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR SAFETY); Removing the Old Bake Element; Using a OHM Meter to Check the "Continuity" of the Old Bake Element to make sure that it was defective; Ordering the New Unit from Parts Select; Installing the New Bake Element and Calibrating the Oven Temperature Settings with a New Oven Thermometer. This was done for Safety and Cooking Reasons to ensure that the Oven would not overheat and was heating correctly. OTHER REPAIR HINTS FYI: I had to use a 1/4" Socket with a Ratchet to remove the Screws which were "frozen" in place; Upon installing the same screws I found that a Portable Hand Held Electric Ratchet worked great because of the "Arm Stretch" into the Oven; I secured the Power Wires that attach to the Bake Element i.e. to prevent them from slipping into the Oven Wall by securing them in place with a "loop" of #14 Romex Wire; Lastly, using pliers, I "VERY Lightly" compressed the electrical Spade Connectors (Female) from the Power wires onto the Bake Element Male Connectors to make sure that the wires were secure and could not easily disconnect.

This was my second time installing a new Bake Element, I am a 67 year old female, if I can do this anyone can. Used a pair of pliers, unscrewed screws pull out burned out element, release from wires, connected new bake element, pushed back in inserted screws...that easy all done.

Followed the video step by step, made the job simple and easy. Did not know there were springs attached to the lower part of hinge till watching video. Parts were genuine GE manufacturer parts which fit perfectly. Very helpful staff and great customer service. My model number did not match perfectly with others listed but the hinge part is identical.

The bottons on the old clock were worn through

I removed the face of the range back. I did not need to remove the three screws in the back like I thought - just the two torx in the front panel. 2) I lifted the clock face assembly out and up. 3) Look at the very simple wiring. Mine had white and red wire coming out of the "power block". 4) I looked at the old circuit board to see which is line and which was neutral. There was no designation. 5) i removed existing wires. 6) I unscrewed the old clock from its moorings, and saved screws. 7) I made sure the up/down orientation of the new clock was the same as the old one. There is an "up" word on the new circuit board, but with the clock upside down, make sure the buttons are correct. BTW, I had to affix the new clockl/timer cover plate onto the replacement clock, using that "up" word on the new circuit board to orient it. 8) I attached the Red wire to the Line connector on the new circuit board, and the White wire to the prong labelled neutral. 9) I used the old screws to secure the new clock to the range back. 19) There was an extension wire included with the new clock. I did not need to use it. 11) I wrestled the clock/timer back into the range itself, using the two torx I removed to secure it. 11) The new buttons on the left (Timer and Clock) are reversed, so now the Timer is the top butting and the bottom now sets the clock. 12) I do not like the feel and action of the new buttons. They are very stiff, and not particularly easy to push.

Bake Element Burned Out

  • Customer: Shane from Lenox, GA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

1. Turned off breaker (Important!) => 2. Removed two (2) metal screws from element mount (1/4" socket or nutdriver) => 3. Pulled element out enough to disconnect wire connections from element (I bent mine up a little to keep them from disappearing back into the holes!) => 4. Connected each wire to new element then re-installed element into position => 5. Re-installed to metal screws (Do not over tighten!) => 6. Turned breaker back on then turned on oven. Element heated up quickly! You may notice a slight smell of something burning when you first turn it on, but that's normal and will fade quickly. Repair completed and $$$ saved!

the original path was from the right front control knob around the back of the range and left side of range,which i dismantaled to install the new wires to the right front burner. When I found them to be to short I had to also dismantal the right side so the wires could be routed there. The new wires worked fine but did take some extra time.
