After figuring I'd have to buy a new oven, I figured out that it was the lower baking element. When I received the new part, I removed the two screws holding the element on. Gently pulled the element off the back oven wall and removed the wire connectors. Put the new element in place - rehooked the wire connectors and it works like new. The light bulb replacement was as simple as screwing in the new light bulb. Thanks, saved me alot of money.....
