Question about GE Ovens
Spilled food into lower halogen heating element, but can't remove glass cover because single screw holding it down is weird--not Philips or other usual screw type. Kind of star- shaped opening in head. Know how I can remove this screw?

Hopefully someone answered your question by now. If not, the glass bulb cover sticks sometimes, but it does turn counterclockwise. Be firm with it, let it know who's boss. Once you've removed it, you can replace the 40 watt appliance bulb. (The manual suggests you unplug the range or disconnect power for your safety). Good luck.

SOURCE: Removal of outer door
Not sure if this has been covered - how to remove the door from the oven.
If you look at the hinges theres a pivoting piece (under all that grease) like a zippo lighter lid. Flid that open towards you and the oven door will pop out when pivoted closed - hinges and all. It should be fairly easy to put back too. Then follow the other instructions - screws on door base.

SOURCE: REMOVAL OF FAN
Ha - I found the solution myself. You need to remove the 3 screws securing the fan motor. Once you've done this, you can wiggle the fan a few mm, far enough to be able to remove the top element screw.

SOURCE: element needs replacing
You need to remove the outer rear panel of oven to gain access to heater on this model.
The element is attached to a panel at the rear of oven , which when removed gives you access to the element..
It cann ot be done from inside the oven.
Plz rate my solution.

Hi Steve...yes, these are a pain! Remove the centre fan nut (which is anti-threaded) then lever off the small locating washer underneath. If you are lucky, you will be able to now pull the fan blade off of the motor shaft. However, very often they won't budge!. If you try to knock it off, it is so easy to damage the fan motor (about £80!!). It is possible to leave the top bracket screwed to the oven and unclamp the element from it. I have come across three different typed of clamps so far. One is very easy to do. You can then remove the clamp from the new element and once the element is in place, use the old clamp. It's a fiddle but quite do-able. I have also come across these where the top clamp has been previously removed altogether by engineers on previous repairs! Hope this all helps a little....
