Locating the correct repair manual for a specific GE stove requires knowledge of the model number. If known, entering it into GE's database search feature, located at the Manuals and Literature link from the Support heading of the GE Appliance website brings up related manuals.
GE also offers an instructional Web page that explains five possible locations the model and serial number stickers are located on electric and gas ranges. These locations include: on the front frame behind the oven door, on the front frame inside the lower drawer, on the front-left leg behind the drawer or kick panel, centered or to the right of center under the cooktop for lift-up styles and under the left-front heating element on electric ranges. GE ovens, cooktops, downdraft vents, microwaves, outdoor grills, vent hoods, wall ovens and warming drawers feature model and serial numbers located in various places on different units.
The various types of manuals GE offers for its stoves are available for download from the website in PDF format. The use and care manual, for example, outlines safety features, warranty information and accessories as well as safe operation of the cooktop and oven elements. A care and cleaning section is then followed by a troubleshooting section for addressing common problems.
