If the element wires are touching, do you need to replace the burner? I'm not able to bend them back in place.

Greg for Model Number KESC307HWW8

ANSWER Hello Greg, The wires cannot touch as this will give the circuit a different resistive value and will cause multiple issues including premature part failures. I would definitely change the element 8523696 if I could not manipulate the assembly to operate properly.
