Easy replacement: 1/4 in. nut driver to loosen two retaining screws, unscrew two wires. Assembly removed and replaced with new bake element. Attached wires, replaced two retaining screws and unit is ready to cook! Bake element is a perfect fit, easy replacement, with no prior experience required. I'm sure I saved quite a bit of money by repairing myself.

Removed the two screws holding the element into the back of the oven, pulled the element out about 6 inches, removed the screws holding the attached wires, attached the wires to the new element, pushed the element back and attached the two screws that now held the new element secure to the back of the oven.

1st step and most important. Locate the circuit breaker for the oven and make sure it is OFF. Used nut driver to remove the two screws holding the element mounting plate to the rear wall of the oven. Gently pulled element out to expose wiring attached to the element. Removed those two screws holding the two wires to the element and removed the old element. Simply reversed the process to install the new element. The entire exercise took 10 maybe 15 minutes.

Broiler element burned out

Repair is pretty easy, its the accessability that makes it difficult. This is a wall mount oven. Removing the door would provide pretty good access, but having to reach over the door into the very top back of the oven is a real pain (in the back and other places). As another customer said, there were many dropped screws and much cussing. The old element terminals were just holes in a metal tab that accepted tapered screws. The new element had terminals that were threaded to accept the screws provided. It took lots of twisting and turning of the element and the power wiring to get the terminal on the wire lined up with the terminal on the element in a position where I could hold them together and insert the screw and start the threads. Don't try this after you've had a beer or two. Whew!!! Many tries, sore back, but did it. Like I said, simple except for the reach. Bake element was much easier. Hope I don't have to do this one again. My GE oven is a winner (20 plus years old) and Parts Select has what you need at a reasonable price and ships quickly. Have used before and will use again, if needed.

Easy if you have the right tools. Turn off the electricity to the oven. Remove two screws to release the element; pull the prongs out carefully so you don't damage the insulation. Unscrew the wiring from the old element. Attach wiring to the new element and secure with the existing screws. Ease the prongs back through the insulation and screw (you can use the existing screws or the ones supplied with the replacement part) the wall mount back into place, taking care to make sure that the element brackets are resting evenly on the oven floor. Turn electricity on and turn on the oven to make sure the new element is working properly. Easy. This oven is 25 years old--hope to get a few more years out of it.

I have had to replace this unit once before. It was very obvious which terminal had burned off. Removed the total front panel. Removed the timer and replaced wires from one unit to the other. Also had to strip off one wire connection and replaced it .

I removed the old element to see the connections and ordered from parts select. The new element arrived in a couple days and I installed the new element as described on the web site (extremely easy) and it was heating like new in a few minutes. Thank you so much for your help and product.

I am left handed which sometime presents things in a aweward way. My greatest task was finding the right position and being able to hold the leads while trying to connect them. So I got a pillow and positioned myself and got into the oven and was able to do the job from there. After doing so, it took about 10 minutes to do the replacement.

First and foremost...I turned the power off at the breaker box..double checked to make sure oven light did not come on. (The breaker box could be mis-numbered) Got a flashlight and unscrewed the plate holding the element to oven wall. I was careful disconnecting the old element per the advice of another commenter and connected the new. Turned on the power and Voila! I was cooking with electric again. I was recently widowed and if it can break it has around here. I've not only become an electrician (oven element) but a plumber, carpenter and roofer. I love the comment page and should I need more parts (and I probably will)I will always use PartsSelect. Oh, and they said I would receive my part in 1.8 days....it arrived in less than 24 hours...Thanks PartsSelect and all their commenters..
