GE assigns every stove a model number to identify its exact configuration for parts replacement and repair purposes. A help page on the GE Appliances website shows where to look for the model number on different types of GE ovens.
When the repair of a stove requires replacement parts, the owner must identify the correct model number. The model name is not enough to identify the correct replacement parts, because there may be multiple oven configurations sold under a single model name. The official GE parts website, GEApplianceParts.com, provides free access to illustrated oven schematics and full parts lists for every available GE oven model number.
