Easy as Pie: Replacing the Element in Your GE Oven
Replacing the element in your GE oven can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. With the right tools and a little bit of know-how, you can easily replace the element in your oven and get back to cooking delicious meals!
The first thing you will need to do is locate the element you need to replace. Most GE ovens have the element located in the back of the oven, near the bottom. You will need to remove the back panel to access the element, so make sure to unplug the oven from the wall before you begin. Once you have the back panel removed, you should be able to locate the element.
Once you have located the element, it is time to remove it. Start by unscrewing the screws that hold the element in place. You may need a Phillips head screwdriver for this step. Once the screws are removed, you can carefully pull the element out of the oven. Be sure to take note of how the element was connected to the oven so you can connect the new element correctly.
Next, you will need to purchase a new element. Most home improvement stores will have a variety of elements to choose from. Make sure you get a replacement element that is the same size and wattage as your current element. Once you have your new element, you can begin to install it.
Start by connecting the wires to the new element. Make sure the wires are connected securely and that they match the same configuration as the old element. Once the wires are connected, you can then slide the element into the oven. Make sure it is securely in place and that it is not touching any of the other components in the oven.
Finally, you can replace the back panel. Make sure all of the screws are securely in place and that the panel is properly sealed. You should now be able to turn the oven back on and start cooking again!
Replacing the element in your GE oven is a relatively simple task. By following these steps, you can easily replace the element and get back to cooking delicious meals. Be sure to unplug your oven before beginning any repairs, and always make sure to purchase a replacement element that is the same size and wattage as your current element. Happy cooking!
