Default 1960's GE Electric Range 4-connector elements
Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


We have an old (original) GE push-button electric drop-in range. All four elements use four (4) connectors, not two as seen on most replacement parts. Where might I find replacements that use a 4-pin/prong element?

No model or serial number tag can be found on the range or underneath. It dates back to 1961/62 when the house was built. The range controls are labeled as "Hi - 2 - 3 - Lo - Wm - Off"

*** Update ***
The ID tag was under a burner, but so badly affected by the heat that only the stamped numbers remained. These are: TV13710 and J P76V1BR.

Any help or just being pointed in the right direction will help.
Thanks,

I tried searching for your unit using the numbers as a model number and a part number and had no luck with either.

Perhaps take an element to a good sized GE parts dealer.
If you get a knowledgeable counter person they may be able to get a new element for you.
Then with luck you can use that part number to cross reference back to your unit.

Denman, thanks for the suggestions.

Did some more digging on this 50 year old model and found the original user's manual stashed in a file drawer here. As typical, the manual covers several models from G.E. But there is good news.

Per the photos in the manual, we have a "JP76" model "built-in range". The manual says it includes models with a "V" in the model number, so JP76V1BR is correct.

The downside is that it doesn't show up in a Google search except at G.E. So I've asked G.E. if they can reference the correct part number. I won't hold my breath though.
