GE ranges are built with parts that fit the following categories body parts, control panel and cooktop parts, door and drawer parts, and gas or electric burner parts. Each range is made with approximately 100 to 250 different parts.
Within all the parts categories of GE range hardware such as screws, nuts, brackets and bolts are included. Pieces specific to the body of a GE range include the heat sensor, oven rack, power cord, oven lamp bulb and oven insulation. The burner parts include bake burner, broiling burner, oven ignition, the high voltage harness and heat shield. Specific parts included in the control panel and cooktop category include the control board, knobs, a variety of burner cap sizes for gas ranges, cooktop seals and the burner grates. The parts specific to the door and drawer category include a range door bumper, drawer body, glass panel, hand bracket and oven-door glass.
GE gas ranges typically include almost twice the number of parts of an electric model. This excess is due to the addition of a gas connection to the electric power needed for the control panel. Freestanding gas ranges use the most parts at almost 250 while an electric drop-in range uses the least amount of parts with just over 100.
