Baking Element Caught fire

The heating element in my bottom oven caught fire...literally, there were flames. I immediately turned off the oven, and teh fire died down. Less than 2 year old GE stove; glass top; digital controls....Oven caught fire last night. It was the baking element. Don't know if the element was cracked or it burned right through the element; all I know is it is in 2 pieces now.

From a consumer repair stand-point; I would inspect, test for continuity and or replace your oven bake heating element.

How to Replace an Oven Bake Heat Element: While ensuring power off when servicing; Remove (2) mounting screws and slowly back-out the element about 3" or so. Then, disconnect and remove wires located on each side of heat element; re-install new element.

Should problems still exist, contact me.

Baking element


oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.

It is very common for elements to "catch fire" when they fail. It is really electical arching. But to answer your question you shouldnt be concerned if it ever happens to the bottom element immediatly kill the breaker it will stop instantly. dont use a fire extinguisher as it wont stop the arching. And most ovens do use the upper broil element for baking for very short intervals like 10secs on every minute or so to brown the top of product. Some models (especially older builder line ) do not
