Default heating element crackling and popping and turning brighter than the rest
Model Number: J HC56 OV7AD   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Last night the wife was cooking and all of the sudden, there was some crackling and popping going on in the lower of the two ovens. (The upper one was not in use).

Looked in the oven and a small section, maybe an inch or so long was glowing much brighter and looked like there was something melting on it.

Turned it off immediately and the noises stopped.

Upon further inspection, it appears that the heating element (it's the lower element of the two), was melting?

Is this a normal occurance in the wear and tear catagory? The oven was clean and there was nothing slipped on the element itself.

I'm at geecue301@yahoo.com if someone can help me out that would be great.

This is my first post.

Is it easy to replace?

how do I do that? I've looked for the part on this site and am having trouble finding it. The live chat is out for now, and probably the weekend.

Here is a link I think your stove is included is the series
Model Search

The "o" in your model number is a zero and also cannot have spaces when searching.
Check the picture in the parts list just to be sure it is the same.
Click on the picture and you will get a better view.

Unplug the unit.
Just undo the screw and gently pull it forward.
Saw a post where the tech put a clothes pin on the wires to prevent them from going back into the oven. Great idea!
If you have problems getting the wires off due to cramped space remove the back panel and do it from the back.
You do not want to break the wires.
If the wire ends are dirty clean them up with some very fine emery cloth before reattaching.

Thanks so much. I'll look for the part with the 0 and no spaces. I appreciate your help. Btw how many years should a heating element last?

Once again, I've tried to find the part in the "model search" engine, and after putting JHC560V7AD, it gives me five JHC56*D1, then JHC56*VA, then JHC56*VB. But no JHC560V7AD. Any suggestions? They all look similar...

Thanks, but mine is squared off on the ends, as opposed to round. The basic shape is the same though. Do you think it would be okay to use this one?

Yes, it is. Do you know that it will work?
