Question about Stoves Kitchen Ranges
Hi. I own a mid 80's GE stove, model # VJ32YKT-4 and I am just wondering how difficult it is to remove the top portion of the stove that houses the 4 elements so I can clean the outer surface of the oven liner. If you can find time to give me instructions I would much appreciate it.
SOURCE: self cleaning hotpoint stove
Sometimes in self clean it can burn out the element. Need to check the element with an ohm meter and see if it shows resistance. If it shows open then the element is bad. If it shows resistance then the element is ok. Next see if you are getting 220 volts to the element when in bake mode. If you are not getting 220 volts then the control is bad.

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.

yes you can
type in your model number

when it arrives unplug the unit and remove the screws holding the top down under the froont lip
lif the lid and mark where your wires connect, remove the wires, and the two 1/4 scres holding the burner
switch out the burner, and re plug all your wires
drop the lid and test

The issue would have to be in the clock or the power wire going to the clock.
The clock controls the power to the oven elements and there are no fuses or other devices to control the elements.
