GE electric stove/oven
Is it OK to use the OVEN BROILER ELEMENT after the oven element shorts out? We're shopping for a stove/oven replacement; model we like will take 7 days from date order.
Cannot find the unit online, so I'm going to disconnect the old element and take it to a local appliance parts.
It's a GE electric stove/oven MOD # JSP26GOV1WH. Serial #VM267829 -- found a site that tries to determine age of the unit from the Ser #. This may go back to 1983.
Element doesn't plug in to a receptacle; there are wires going back behind the oven wall. Pulling the oven out tomorrow (12/28) to disconnect element.
