Broken oven bake element

My Repair & Advice

Unscrewed the old part, screwed in the new part. The hardest part was reaching in to get to the back of the oven. We have a 35-year-old General Electric range in one of our rental units that had a broken bake element in the oven. I didn't think we'd be able to find the part to replace it but, lo and behold, there on your web site was a bake element that looked exactly like the one that was broken. Taking a chance, I ordered it. When it arrived, I couldn't believe how similar it was to the broken part. The broken part came out very easily and the new part went in very easily with just a screwdriver and a nut driver. I figure it would have cost no less than $150 to call an appliance repair person.
