Bake Element Specifications

This bake element is used in ranges and located at the bottom of the oven. The bake element supplies heat for baking. If your symptoms include: your oven is not heating evenly, not starting, or the heating is not consistent, then replacing the element can be the solution. Remove two retaining screws, make sure to disconnect the two connecters at each end of the element, and replace with the new one. Before starting this replacement, make sure the range is unplugged from the power source or shut off from the house circuit breaker. The tool needed is a Phillips screwdriver.

For model number RB 5250N1AD
Hello Carol and thanks for writing. If the oven temperature is higher than the level set, then most likely the thermostat needs replacement. Heating elements: The oven can also overheat if there is a malfunction with its heating element. ... A problem with the sensor can cause the oven to overheat. We hope this helps.

Need baking heating element for this GE wall oven. In your search there is no "0" after the "g" does this matter
For model number JKP26G0P4BG
Hi Joe, thank you for your question. Yes, that would be correct. You no longer need that 0 in your model number. So this element would be the correct part for your model. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Could the elements be the problem if the oven doesn't heat up enough? My oven reads 350 but temperature reads 220.
For model number JRS04BW1BB
Hello Jeanne, Thank you for the question. I Suggest testing the Oven Sensor, PartSelect Number PS236043. Testing the temperature sensor probe on your oven is easy. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1080 – 1090 ohms at room temperature. Thank you for your inquiry, good luck with this repair!

Baking element broke in half
I removed the screws holding the old element in place, then pulled it out a few inches from the back oven wall. Then I pulled the wires away from the old baking element (pulled off easily), and being careful to keep the wires on the same sides as before, pushed the new element on to the wires. It was then just a matter of inserting the wires and insulation back into the opening and tightening the screws. Simple!

26 year old oven, lower element burned into two pieces.
I first removed the broken element by removing the two hexhead screws on either side of the element bracket. Then I gently pulled the wires through the opening and removed two more screws that attached the wiring to the element. I then compared the new and old elements and found a few differences.

First, the screw holes where the wires connect to the element were tiny in the new element, about a third the size of the holes in the old one. Secondly, the mounting bracket was not as long as the original, and the holes to mount it to the back of the oven are located at the top of the bracket, instead of the sides.

Since this was the only element that I have found, that comes close to the original, I decided to make it work.

I took my drill and a small bit and bored out the screw holes, just enough to get a self taping screw to fit and reconnected the wires.

Now I'm not sure that I would recomment the next step to anyone, but I did this: I held the new bracket against the back of the oven and drilled new holes to match the new bracket, and again used self tapping screws. The reason that I don't encourage this is that the new bracket fits just inside of the old opening, but the insulation cannot be seen as long as the element does not get moved. I then plugged the original bracket holes with the original hex head screws.

It took a little more time and effort than I had expected, but well worth it, after eight months without the use of my oven.

Bad element
Removed mounting screws and element only pulled out about 2 inches. Disconnected wires and had to drill slightly bigger hole in element ends to reattach wires. Element mounting bracket was different than old element. Had to use one existing screw hole in oven back and drill a new one.

Baking element quit
Removed burned out element and discovered replacement element had a different back plate and different hole pattern. Also, the electical connecttion from power wires to ends of element were a TOTALLY different size, both in hole size and size of material that hole was placed. This tood a lot of slow increasing the size of the hole time. Also, the backplate was a different size with a two hole pattern at the top of the plate, as oppossed to the original plate with holes centered at the sides of the plate. Had to drill holes in back oven wall higher than I wanted, as the oven wall had a depression in the back wall and I could not drill at that point. By drilling holes that were higher than previous holes, there was now a 1/2" opening at the bottom of this plate. Used a hack saw and cut off a piece of the old plate to slip underneath, then screwed in the new plate, thus filling the remaining opening, and securing the additional hand made additional plate. This was a lot more than I had bargain for, and when I turned on the oven, it did not work! I re-checked the connection of the power wires to the grid element and found one of the connections to be disconnected. Reconnected this wire and everything is just ducky now.
