First I took off the back protection plate and vacuumned all the lent away. I looked to see where the heating element was but honestly wasn't sure. So I went to the website and looked at the schematic diagram. Ah ha! It was 15 inches long and was in a riveted casing. So I ordered the element and fuse, not knowing what was broken.When I got the element I was surprised to see that there was only room for one screw. Great! I reached up in the casing and with a wrench took my time and unscrewed it. Looking around I noticed the only way I was going to get that thing out of there was to sort of bend it as I pulled it. Sure enough it slid out and when I looked at it the element was broken in one spot. To get it back in I reversed the procedure and pushed while I bent the frame gently. Then I replaced the fuse, put the plate back on and cranked it up. I was my wife's hero for a couple of days.
