The age of General Electric stoves can be determined by the serial number. The second letter of the serial number indicates the year, while the first letter identifies the month of manufacture. A cross-reference chart to decipher GE appliance serial numbers is available on the GE website.
The serial numbers on GE electric stoves are usually located under the left front burner unit. They can also be located behind the door on the frame. In double-door models, it's located behind the lower door. Other locations can be behind the drawer or kick panel on the left leg or inside the drawer on the front frame. Serial numbers for lift-top models are usually located under the top, centered or on the right side of the frame.
