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.

    1. i have seen it before in that time frame it's very well possible workmanship of the coating on element was bad but i would not worry it really is a common problem

Kill the power to the stove. L2 is always hot to the element. If it welded itself to the frame whats left of the element stays hot. Easy fix but power needs to be OFF

Electrice oven not working


Hi.
You are quite correct in saying that a new element will solve the problem.
It is usually located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.

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.
