I needed new surface elements & burner bowls

This was about the simplest fix I've ever done. Just pulled off the old surface elements & burner bowls, wiped down the range top, and put in the new parts. Perfect fit. No problems at all. $$ well spent. ParsSelect shipped quickly, and they arrived well packaged. A+ experience all around. Thanks PartSelect. JA, San Ramon, CA

Replacement of coils

Removed by slightly wiggling out of the coupling. No tools needed, seriously, (and I'm a contractor). Basically, pull out and snap back in.

Heating element required continuous adjustments to work.

I removed old 8" surface element and terminal block. Some of old wiring had to be cut off because of harding/cracking of old wiring. Stove was 23 years old and this burner was the most frequently used one. I soldered the new and remaining old wires together. I used the shirnk wrap that came with the terminal block to cover the solder joint. I screwed the new terminal block (one screw holds it in place - used same screw from old terminal block that was removed). I finished by inserting the new surface element. Everything works fine. In the next week or two after we use it a while, I will check wiring again to make sure there are no changes. You need to be very careful as it gets very hot under the burner.

The drip pans were unusable due to excessive use, and I decided to replace the surface elements as well.

There was nothing to it...I unplugged the Sufrace Elements from thier bases, removed the Drip Bowls, replaced the Drip Bowls and then plugged the Surface Elements back in to thier bases. The entire process could not have taken more than two minutes.

Burners were not level and did not heat evenly

The burners were not level and would heat more on one side than the other. Since the range was 21 years old and would cost a lot to replace, I decided to replace the burners and
treat myself to new drip bowls. I Googled and got the information on the range including part numbers. I ordered them and am very happy. It was very easy to replace the old ones. Only problem the large drip bowl was dented but on sending an email to compamy, a new one is being sent. I am very happy at the ease since I am a retired widow of 76 years old. It pays some time to take care of the old and do a little reapair instead of spending a lot of money on relacement when every thing else is in excellent condition.
Thanks for making this a very easy experience.

The burners no longer worked on my stove top

All it took to repair was to plug in the new heating elements. The REAL story is the difference in price. I went to a parts center first and the two elements were going to cost me $115! I got them at PartSelect for half the price. And they came in the same sealed GE parts bag that Sears had. Can't beat a good thing!

Element was loose, heated erratically

The cause of the problem was that I had installed a generic replacement recepticle earlier. Parts Select had the correct part. It came with handy wire nuts to help connect to range wires to the recepticle wires.

I had to replace my drip pans as well as the heating elements on all four burners

Very simple to replace, pull off the old element and push in the new one. Not only was it super easy, part select was so easy to work with. I had placed the order wrong, and immediately called customer service. They cancelled my order and placed the new one, refunding my money within 2 business days for the wrong order. Courteous, friendly and prompt. I would highly recommend them! Oh, I forgot to mention that the parts actually fit perfectly, unlike drip pans bought elsewhere. Thank you, Sincerely, Cindy

Melted electric range element

Because of the superb pics and descriptions on the Part Select site, I was able (with NO range model number) to order the correct range element for beloved son's stove. He plugged it in in 3 seconds, works great !
