Major Appliances/ge zet 958smss double wall oven


QUESTION: I need directions to replace the hidden bake element.  I have removed the top broiler.  3 screw on top and 3 on the bottom.  I have removed the crews from the lights and the cover to the convection fan.  The door is off.

I can not figure out how to remove the convection heating element
I can not figure out how to pull the light through
the meat probe will not pull through

ANSWER: First thing I would do is to remove the oven door and then remove the oven floor to gain access to the hidden bake element....    Good Luck, Eric

QUESTION: How do you remove the oven floor the whole who insert is one piece?  I can send you a picture.

Hello Tom,
         I have done quite a bit of research on this unit and from what I can gather, the unit has to be pulled from the wall and attacked from the rear.  If you look at the  diagram for the bake element the (L-Shaped Plate) number 489 almost has to come out of the rear of the unit.  If I were there, I would pull the unit and attack from the rear.  These hidden elements are very tring at times.  Some come out from the sides but none thart I have run into come out from the front.  I apologize for the first response....Thought the floor came out until I looked further....  Pull the unit and attack from the rear....  Good Luck, Eric
