Burnt stove element

Hi there, My 15 year-old GE basic stove has a burnt element. The stove has been discontinued; I looked in Canada and the States. Surely a stove should last longer than this? My husband bought a different element and wants to adapt it. Is this safe?
Many thanks,

most electrical wholesale shops carry elements for stoves

Should we repair heat element, or buy a new oven?

It sounds like your element is electric. When food drips on that element it can cause a heat spot on the insulation around the electric element and eventually burns through. You can easily replace that element for about $50 - $60. It requires about three hand tools and 15 minutes to remove old one and install a new one. You should be in business for another 14 years if you clean any drippings on the element itself.

Hello, I have an older model GE wall unit oven, single. It is the original unit and is about 40 years old. Tonight, I was cooking dinner and I opened the door. There was a loud buzzing noise and when I...

Hi Leslie,

First of all, the manual isn't going to help you much as they only usually provide information on installation and operation. Also, if the oven is indeed 40 years old, it's probably going to be rather difficult to obtain one.

Considering the age of the oven and your description, it's most likely that the element has simply burnt out rather than any electrical fault. If it's the original element, 40 years is pretty good going!

If you post back with the model number of the oven, I might be able to find the manual and/or a supplier for a new element, but there's no guarantee a replacement is available. It's possible to fit non-standard elements as long as they are of similar size and the same rating, but I would leave that to an engineer as it can require new fixings if the pattern is different.

Oven takes FOREVER to pre-heat

You probably have a bad heating element. Trip the breaker and make sure that all power is removed from the stove/oven. Remove the element, and test it for continuity. If it tests open, obtain a replacement from an appliance parts supply house. If it tests good, you should suspect either a bad switch or thermostat.

Can I use a similar bake element if I can't find the exact match

Yes, I would say you could use a different shaped element.

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.
