Crappy tire is where I got one for my stove. They also carry the oven element and new dials. Cheaper than a repair shop.

thanks for the reply all...just to confirm, are they all universal, is there any one better than the other? The stove is less than a year old, but I didn't expect the element to come apart.

yea, they are universal. I even saw some chinese store selling one specially design for WOK. It is a curved heating element instead of a flat one.

On the other hand, if you stove is under a year old, that should be cover under warrenty?

I have a GE stove and I got my elements from a GE supplier. We bought an element from Cdn Tire and it didn't work (heat up) my stove so we had to buy it from a supplier. Eventhough all elements are universal but it may not necessarily work for all stoves.

really? Eventhe connector looks the same? And do you have a multimeter that can measure the resistance on the heating element? Humm.. this is interesting to know.

And how much more expensive is buying from GE (vs CanTire)?

Yup, the Cdn Tire and the GE supplier's elements looked the same. Everything looked the same but the one from Cdn Tire just didn't heat up. Odd, eh? Anyways, I can't remember how much Cdn Tire's cost. GE's supplier's element cost us about $30 each (that's for the bigger element). Here's a link to GE's Parts & Accessories Store:

There is also small specialty store at HW7/Keele which sell parts for appliances (stoves, fridges, washers etc.) It's more for repairmen/contractors though, so the more you buy, the lower the price.
