Question Not sure of replacement burner element
Model Number: J331   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My old GE electric range needs a new front burner. I ordered part no. WB30M2 based on the description on the part, but now that I have it, I'm not sure it's the correct part. It seems to be the opposite of the old one, when you look at the two "arms" that attach it to the range. Am I supposed to open up the plastic box to attach the new part? The repair manual you offer for GE ranges is out of stock. Thank you.

I donít know how your old on is but the WB30M2 just plugs in. If youíre old one didnít just pull out you got the wrong one.

Here are some pictures and descriptions of units that work with GE ranges GE Range Parts

The range is probably 30 years old, or so. The old burner does not just plug in. I took it apart and found that the "arms" on the burner go into a plastic box. Inside the box there are two tiny bolts that have to be loosened for the old burner to come off. The new burner (obviously the wrong one) has no extensions to go to those bolts. What part do I need? Other that the arms not ending correctly, the old burner and the new burner look a lot alike. Thank you.

Default additional info.

Sorry - I did look at the photos. The one that comes the closest is the Westinghouse that has small loops at the end, but the loops are vertical. On this range, I think they'd have to be horizontal.

With all you said I believe the part you need is WB30X341 (large hardwire unit) but without seeing the unit I canít say for sure.

I looked at the photos. That unit doesn't look like mine - it has too many arms. Mine looks just like your photos of WB30X219 or WB30M2 with the exception of the ends. Is there any way I can send you a photo of mine?

Arrow Going by its parts list...

GE [model J331] electric range needs a new front burner.
You can see the replacement elements for that model going according to its parts list at the following links:

LINK > GE J331 Replacement Large Element, 2 wire

LINK > GE J331 Replacement Small Element, 3 wire

They should have a mounting bracket attached to them that gets screwed to the range top. The wiring is connected directly to the element terminals with screws (which should be included with the replacement element along with the terminal cover insulator).

JFYI
