I looked up what was wrong on line. Found the problem and the solution. Put the model number in and found the heating coil I needed. I got the part in 2 days with standard delivery. Easily took the coil out by taking the back off the oven, disconnecting the old heating element which was attached by two simple clips that I just needed to pull apart. Put the heating element that I received in just as I had pulled the old part out. Put the cover back on. It was very very simple and I am proud of myself that I didnt just opt calling a repairman out and took the time to research it myself. Fixed oven for under $60!
