Removing Broiler Element – GE Double Oven JK5500SFSS

Removing Broiler Element –

I want to remove the broiler element in my oven. It looks simple, but want to confirm. I see screws on the back plate of the element that I know would have to be removed. What I don’t know is once the screws are removed what is in back of that plate that would have to be removed. What type of electrical connection is used. For example, is it a screw or slip on type of connector or something else?

Or, is there a link to a video or instructions on how to do it?

Thanks,
Jerry

First and foremost..... make sure power is off. With most electric ovens..... one side of the element has live power on it and the other side is switched. You don't want to pull the wires thru the metal and hit.

You missed a digit in your model number...JK5500SFxSS
I figured it was a 1.

Don't know about a video. I can send you to an exploded view showing the broiler element assembly. It's called an assembly because it's actually a dual element.... at least in the top oven. The four wires should just slide off the element. Be sure to mark the order of connection.

UPPER OVEN Diagram & Parts List for Model JK5500SF1SS GE-Parts Wall-oven-Parts | SearsPartsDirect

Part 252 is the broiler element. When the link opens click on "full size" under the diagram. It will open in a new page. Now click on the new diagram for an exploded view. You can use your cursor or arrow buttons to navigate.

Let me know if you need further help.

Thanks for the quick reply. The missing number is 2 and it was for the upper oven. I didn’t think it was required. Anyway could you send me the links for both upper and lower ovens for me to save?

Thanks,
Jerry
