Product Description

Broil Element Specifications

The broil element is located at the top of the oven and gives off heat in order to bake evenly. If you notice that the element is not heating up or is not cooking evenly it could be because it is broken or burnt out. The depth of the screw-on terminals is 2-3/4 inches and they are 1-1/4 inches apart. Does not include mounting bracket. All you need for this simple repair is small screwdriver. To complete this repair, you will need to first turn the oven off (or shut off the house circuit breaker), remove the two screws that are holding the old element in place, remove the two wires from the old part, and then connect them to the new part and screw back into place.

broiler element was broken
I looked on Youtube for a how to video. It was accurate but the screws in my oven were NOT phillips head screws, they turned out to be sheet metal screws. I used pliers at first which was a PAIN but then I borrowed a socket wrench from the neighbor that was MUCH better!! I had wanted to do it myself to prove to my husband and son that I could but I ended up needing their help because the screws were so tight.... But we did the repair ourselves!!!

Replaced Oven Broiler Element
Removed old, burned out element, and replaced with a new element. The worst part of the entire job was getting the oven door assembled back on to the oven.

Replace cracked broiler element
Unplugged Stove, pulled away from wall. With smaller wrenches, took the two screw-nuts off the inside back and above that hold the broiler element in place. Since it is an older stove...took the back panel off the stove with philips screw-driver which consisted of 10 screws. Once that was removed was able to unscrew the broiler element from the two wires that provide the electricity. Used the flash light when I had to unfasten the screw-nuts inside the stove because kitchen lighting wasn't strong enough.

Old element was burned out
Piece of cake to repair. I took both both heating elements off. I sprayed oven cleaner everywhere to soften the grime. I waited 10 minutes and wiped up the softened baking grime. Installation took 5 minutes for each element and about 15 minutes to clean the oven while both elements were removed.

Top element burned out of oven.
Turned power off to oven. Unscrewed back plate exposing wires connected to heating element. It was difficult to unscrew the connections between them as it was hard to reach in because the oven door was in the way, but i finally succeeded. Unscrewed the bracket holding the burned out element and then attached the wires to the new element. Attached the bracket and I turned on the power. I then tested the oven and it worked.

When the broiling element wires slip back into the back of the oven ( this is a wall oven ) how do you retreave the wires to connect the broiling element?
For model number RJ734GP1
PartSelect logo
Hi James, Thank you for your question. You would have to remove your appliance from the wall to be able to get to the wires and push them back through the opening. Good luck with your repair.

I have an older model GE double wall unit (~1980). The bottom heating element in both ovens is out. These elements have a different shape than the broiler unit at the top and the terminals are approximately 1 " apart. Do you have the parts, the lower heating element, for this model oven?
