Supplier for heating elements for old GE stove

  1. I'm still using one of those semi-antique GE range/oven combinations.
    It's probably 50 years old but aside from the timer that stripped a gear
    many years ago, still works fine.

    The problem is that the oven and range elements are becoming harder to find,
    at least inexpensively. It used to be that MCM Electronics had them
    but no more. Google turns up a couple of suppliers who want 2 or 3 times the
    previous prices. Maybe it's just because they are much less in demand
    but wanted to check here first to see if anyone has a favorite supplier.
    Psrt numbers are: WB44X195 (small oven element) and WB30X354 and 356
    (range elements).

    Thanks.

    The elements you want are no longer being manufactured for many of these
    older types As they get harder to find, the dealers will keep raising
    their prices. If you are hard core on keeping this stove, you are best
    off to buy a lot of spare parts, or find a scrapper if possible, where
    the elements are still good (very rare).

    My father in-law had an older stove. He had to give up on it.

    I just go to the local appliance parts place & pay their price (or use
    the other burners - that's why they installed 4 huh?). Just happened to
    see the first place below on a quick Google search if you wana stock
    up...

    http://www.mainappliance.com/specials/index.html

    WB30X354 ... 8", 3 wire element with trim ring. (1955-1975) $ 19.49 each
    WB30X356 ... 6", 3 wire element with trim ring. (1955-1975) $ 16.99 each

    They want to sell to "servicers only" & have a $50 min order (See
    footnote on page). I'm _sure_ you service these things :)


    My standard price comparison place:
    Sears parts: "http://www3.sears.com/"
    UNIT 8" L WB30X354 $ 42.99
    UNIT 6" L WB30X356 $ 37.99
    BAKE UNIT WB44X195 $ 41.49

    Baking out those lasers done burnt up the element huh?
