Customer Question
General Electric WB44X134 Broil...

General Electric WB44X134 Broil Unit Replacemenet does not align with the screw holes in the back of the oven and the electrical contacts are of a different type than the OEM. What should I do?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your oven? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

GE , manual for it says it is a JKP 76. I think it is about 20 years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I have replaced the bake element with no problem. The replacement was identical to the OEM. But not with this broil element.
