When the element is removed from the rear cavity wall, the wires should pull off the spade ends of the element using something like pliers.

Replacing element in oven


Pull out the oven & unplug it. If element is screwed to the back wall of the inside of oven, you can remove the screws to detach the element or if not, there should be a metal protective plate at the rear of the oven to access the element screws/wiring. Replace with same.

We have a GE electric stove with a JDP 39 oven element which has burned out. How do we get the bottom heating element out to replace it?


UNPLUG the stove or turn off its breaker.

Inside the oven, trace the element back to the rear wall. There should be one screw on each side next to where the element goes through the rear wall. Unscrew that screw on each side and pull the element toward you - it'll come easily, bring its wiring behind it (this is why there must be NO power to the stove!). Detach the wiring from the element... DO NOT allow the wires to pull back through the wall, or you'll have to pull the whole range out to retrieve them.

To install the new element, just reverse that procedure.

Oven not highering up


  • 1 Turn off the power to the oven at the breaker box.

  • 2 Take out the screws holding the element bracket in place. These will be on the back wall of the oven, or sometimes on the top.
  • 3 Pull the element toward you a little bit until you see the wires behind it.

  • 4 Unscrew the leads and take the bad element out.
  • 5 Hold the new element up while you attach the wires to it. Don't stretch the wires any more than you have to.
  • 6 Line up the element while tucking the wires back in. Be sure not to pinch the wires between the bracket and the back wall.
  • 7 Fasten the brackets, making sure they're tight.
  • 8 Restore power to the appliance.
  • Buy Performance parts.

    Bottom oven heating element turned white hot and broke in the middle. Can I replace myself?


    This is a common problem and easy repair. Locate the model number onside the oven door frame. Purchase the element based on the model number. TURN OFF the power to the oven. Unscrew the 2 screws inside the oven holding the element to the back wall. Gently pull the element forward. The wires will be short.Remove the wires from the broken element. Place them on the new element. Re-insert the element terminals and attach the screws.
    TURN ON the power. Bake me some cookies and send them to me.

    Replacing oven burner element, the lower element, for a GE stove


    (I think it is 50 watts or volts??)
    Most electric ranges are supplied with 220 volts - this is, especially at 60 Hz, deadly. You were lucky this time.
    If the wires are not welded onto the element contacts, they might be so-called 'quick-disconnects' that pull straight off of blades that are part of the elelment.  
    You probably haven't hurt the range with the momentary short circuit since the chassis of the range is connected to neutral or ground so you just gave your breaker a workout. BTW, I have had to replace late breakers after they tripped. They wouldn't stay reset any more even after the problem was removed from the circuit. Don't be surprised if yours doesn't stay reset; it may not be a fault causing it.

    Take the 2 screws out of the back wall of the oven (inside) holding the element on. Then pull the element out and it will expose the wires and terminals (2). Unplug the 2 wires and plug them on the new element and mount the element back in the oven and your fixed. (make sure to turn the power off to the oven before you start unpluging wires.
