    Default Rehab my old 1970s JBS16G001WH range

    Model Number: JBS16G001WH
    Brand: GE
    Age: More than 10 years

    I've lurked here a lot guys, but first time posting.

    It's a TZ serial number, so i assume December 1974.

    And im assuming thats a "g" in my model number, as even with a pencil rubbing, i cant make it out.

    Anyway, it has the old screw connector hinged style elements, and the wire needs to be replaced horribly. Ive ordered new high temp wire, but i need some of of the connectors to put on the wire, and I'd love to know if the ceramic covers for the terminals afe still available.

    Also, the oven seal is on the oven side, not on the door. Are these still available? There is hardly any of the seal left.

    I'll post pics when i can.

    JBS16C001WH is a valid model number.

    It's a TZ serial number, so i assume December 1974.
    It's the Z that would indicate the year 1976, 1988 or 2000.

    Do you have a crimping tool to install the terminals with? If not, look for a pkg with both together.

    I don't know that I'd even put terminals on the wires if they were going onto screw terminals on the elements. An electrical problem due to a poor crimp on a wire terminal is more likely to occur than wiring coming loose from a screw terminal.

    I'd love to know if the ceramic covers for the terminals are still available.
    The element terminal insulators were rarely ever available separately. You might get a used one from a used appliance dealer?

    Yes.
