Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range
I have a GE TrueTemp electric range (model J BPOWOB1WW) whose baking element has gone out (burned out and broke apart). I ordered the part today, thinking I could replace it myself, but taking a look at the connection, I'm not sure I can.
Will I be disconnecting the ends of the element from the wires while reaching inside the oven--that is, unscrewing the plate and pulling the element toward me to reach the connections; or taking off the plate on the back of the oven, disconnecting things from there, and pushing the ends of the new element through the insulated slot, and reconnecting the wires to the element from in back?
Either way, the way the element ends are connected to the wires puzzles me--no obvious, easy parts to pull apart or unclip and reconnect, no simple unplug and replug. But then I don't have the part yet and don't what the end of it looks like. Do I need to rewire?
I'm not a fix-it kind of guy, but I'm trying to improve myself.
I just had the same problem. Just remove the rear panel of the range and unplug the two leads. Now go to the two screws inside the oven and remove them. The heating element will now come out and you can insert the new element the same way. Replace the two screws inside the oven and then attatch the two leads in the rear. Replace the rear panel and you are set to go.
