Hello JBlum, Yes, most stove top elements, including those with the thermo sensors, are replaceable. Without the model number, I can't steer you towards the exact part number, but you can look it up yourself at www.searspartsdirect.com

Just enter in the full model number of your GE range and it will bring up all the line drawings and parts lists for it. You can either order the parts from Sears, or use any other supplier you wish.

Just remember to disconnect the range from the wall outlet before you undertake any repairs or attempt to replace any parts, so you'll be safe.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

We have a dcs 48 inch range/oven and the main oven does not heat. The broiler does and the small side oven heats. Any advice?


You don't say if it lights up! If it lights up and stays on low it's the thermostat that's at fault, they are not adjustable and will need to be replaced.

My cooktops eye stopped working


Is the oven not working as well? If it isn't working check your breaker for that appliance.

I have a Chef Ceran Cooktop Model EHC64oU with four elements. The problem is that it doesn't seem to cook anything on a low heat. It stays on low for a few minutes and then the the temperature increases...


I am assuming having looked up the model that you have a glass top range. These ranges use a thermostat to regulate cooking temperature, and when they go bad you will either suffer from erratic cooking temperature or have no heat at all. The best solution I can think of is to replace that thermostat.

Coil element on kitchen aid model ker1201 slow to


some of the coiled eyes have two coils(elements). one of the coils can burn into at any point around the element rendering it useless while the other can still work. when you lift the glass top you will see the elements are shaped like springs. the elements metal is very britlle.it is you have to replace the entire eye to fix it. the coil most likely had a very gap in the break and acted like a short making and breaking connection until the gap was too wide then nothing. easy fix. just replace the entire eye (power UNPLUGGED!!!) match the old wires with the new part as you take the old part off. I mark them even with a sharpie. it has 3 to 5 wires on that plug into the eye unit. estimated cost for the part online is about 40 to 65 bucks.

My electric stove top burner only works on high


This is for the glass top units. well i'm not sure if your problem is with your large or small single burner or the large expandable burner. If it's the large or small single burner replace the burner and if it the expandable also replace the burner. If you have a coil burner replace the infinite switch. Good luck hope this helps you.

Only high setting works on burner


Sounds like the Switch or the element are bad, try trouble shooting them. It's a stove top??

Kenmore Electric Counter Unit 43421


You are right it is the infinate heat control. This has no thermostat. It works by letting the burner cycle on for longer periods of time on the higher settings on high it is on constantly. The contacts are probably fused inside This part shouldn't be more than $25.

Frigidaire glass cooktop


first try putting pans on top and see what they do you should not operate these type of eyes with nothing on them as you will burn out the sensors in the eyes if nothing is there to reflect the heat back to them if it does the same thing with pans on them then you will have to replace the elements
