Thoughts of roasted turkey, prime rib, pies and cookies come to mind. Delayed repairs to the oven have now come due. We have some help for you on getting that oven repaired, which we will get to in a moment. We also have help for you if you have a problem with the surface burners on your range.
|WB30M1 & WB30M2|
GE has many different surface elements they have used over the years. Lately they usually use a similar surface elements to the Whirlpool version. GE also has a "Y" base with standard 6 inch 4 turn and 8 inch 5 turn sizing. The big difference is in the connectors. Instead of a closed loop, GE uses a push in tap style of connection. For the 6 inch ask for part WB30M1 and the 8 inch is part WB30M2.
For example,consider this GE bake element, part number WB44X200. No longer used in new products, for a long time GE was using this bake element in many of their models. The element measures a width of 13-1/2 inches, length of 16-5/8" inches, and a depth of 2-1/2 inches. The terminal ends are spaced 1-1/4" apart. It is hinge mounted, It was used on GE, Hot Point, RCA, Kenmore and a few other brands. We still get calls for it everyday. We recommend this element for truck stock as we approach the holidays.
If you are part of an active service company, any of these parts would make a fine addition to your inventory. Remember, the holidays will be here soon. Not having parts on hand can cause return trips to finish service calls. Be ready with inventory on hand and keep your rate of first call completions high.
