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.

"JSP26G0v1wh" Parts from RepairClinic.com
Check here for parts. And as far as using the broiler element it's fine. Just make sure that any thing you disconnect is isolated to prevent shorting. You may need to re-check your model number when you get on this site.

Local appliance store had it in stock. Working again (saw the plug ends with a better light).

Repairclinic.com had the element for $18 online. Paid more than twice that over the counter, but the oven's working now going into the weekend.

Thanks again.
