Had to move the range out of its little cubby hole in the kitchen so that I could have access to the back of the range. This process probably took the longest. After that it was a piece of cake. Took about 15 minutes to complete the job. So easy, eve a caveman could do it.

Took back cover panel off (upper) and removed the 4 1/4 inch nut screws. Used nut driver and removed the 4 screws holding control panel in place.

I first talked to a tech rep for General Electric about the symptom. Then he told me if the burner is overheating it would have a bad surface switch. I swiped the alleged bad switch with another switch that was good on the range. The result was that the problem followed where I put the bad one so that is how I troubleshot it. I then ordered another switch.

heating element in oven

I first pulled the stove away from the wall to unplug and look from the rear. Look at the wiring from the back (you may have to remove 2 screws and the plate that covers the wiring) and take a picture of it if you can with your smart phone - this way when you go to put it back you have a reference. I then removed the oven racks and the 2 little bolts holding the element in place. Wiggle it toward you slowly so the wires don't pull off. It's easier if you use needle nose pliers to get the fittings off, if its hard wiggle the fitting it will come off. I put the connections on the new element and squeezed them tight not to move. I did put a small piece of electrical tape on the connection ends for my piece of mind. Screw it back in and, plug it in and turn on. If the element starts to glow your done, put the cover back on over the wires and slide it back in place. If your kind of handy you can do it.

Original terminal block plastic shielding melted, protecting appliance when the wires overheated.

Safety first * Unplugged 220 VAC from outlet. Removed shield cover screws with 1/4" hex nut driver (5 screws). Removed all 6 silver screws from terminal block with 1/4" nut driver, freeing all wires. Removed the green ground screw and ground bracket from center terminal. Cut away (using the drill) melted original terminal block plastic to access the 2 black 1/4" nuts holding original terminal block onto appliance. Discarded the original damaged terminal block. Attached the new terminal block, aligning the mounting holes and the terminal block the same way the original terminal block was lined up and re-used the black 1/4" nuts (original used because the replacement package did not include new black screws). I bought a new appliance cord, since the original cord overheated. Reattached all wires using the 6 new silver screws. Start with the middle terminal by attaching the appliance wires and the ground bracket. The ground must be attached to the bracket and the bracket bridges between the terminal block and the range body. Reattached shield cover. Plugged in appliance. Note: it doesn't matter which outside wire attaches to the outside terminals (both are hot), but the middle wire (neutral) must attach to the middle terminal. However, the ring terminal should be flush on the terminal block so you don't bend the ring.

Bake element in the stove went out

Unplugged the stove from wall, pulled out oven racks. Unscrewed 2 screws that attached the burner to the oven. Pulled the two wires off, be careful not to let them go back into or behind the oven wall, then you would need to take the back center panel off and push them back through. But I bent the wire enough when taking them off to make sure they rested on the inside of the oven wall, got the new burner attached it to the two wires, screwed it back in the oven wall and I was done. Plugged it back in and works beautifully. Whole thing took maybe 15 minutes 30 minutes tops.

When my wife tried to get the oven door apart to clean behind the glass front, she bent the Door Bottom Channel Trim, so I had to order a new trim piece.

Consult the instruction guide that comes with the new part. Excluding doing some cleaning while things were apart, the operation took about 20minutes. 1. Open the oven door all the way. 2. Pull back the hinge latch on each hinge. 3. Close the door partially (about broil position). 4. Remove door by pulling so that hinges com out of the slots. 5. Carefully set door face down on a table so that inside of door faces up. 6. With a Torx driver, remove 2 screws at upper part of inside of door. 7. With a nut driver, remove screws at bottom of Door Bottom Channel Trim. 8. Lift inside of door off, being careful not to lose the spacers that are behind the door panel at the upper part of the door. 9. With the nut driver, remove 4 screws that hold bottom trim to the side trim pieces. 10. Remove the old trim and replace with the new. 11. Align the left, right, and bottom trim pieces. 12. Reattach the 4 screws that hold the bottom trim to the side trim pieces. 13. Carefully replace the inside door panel, making sure the spacers are aligned properly between the main door pieces. 14. With the Torx driver, replace the 2 screws at the upper part of the inside of door. 15. With the nut driver, reattach the bottom screws at the bottom of the trim piece. 16. Carefully reinsert the door hinges into the slots (the door must be in the approximate broil position). 17. When hinges are properly inserted, door may be opened all the way. 18. Push the hinge latches back into hinges to secure door to oven.

I too made the mistake of cleaning the oven with the shelves in place. It doesn't really harm them...but they turn a tarnished brown color...they look dirty. These replacement shelves were a perfect match. Pricing was reasonable, communication was terrific and shipping was super fast. Happy camper here :-)

Replacing the backing element in our oven.

The element ignited and burnt like a sparkler. I unscrewed the bolt/screws holding it in, and pulled like I had on older models. The clips holding it didn't come undone, but the wires hit the side causing a huge flash. It was still hot, even though it wasn't turned on. You need to unplug the oven, or turn off the breaker. I unplugged and took the back panel running down the middle off (4 screws), and undid the clips. Putting the new one back in was easy. Insert the element ends through their places inside the oven. Screw them in place. Hook the wire clips on in back, and replace the back panel. Installation took less than 5 minutes.
