I suspected the bottom element was acting up. To repair I first turned off the circuit breaker for the range, confirmed by checking the clock and a burner. I removed 2 1/4" crews using a nut driver, then removed and replaced two Phillips screws, being carful to attach two leads to left side, and one to the right side. Reinstalled the two screws, flipped the breaker and baked some cookies. 100% Success!
