My Repair & Advice
Ordered and installed a new element Wire connections were sticky and was a bit difficult disconnecting them from the "burned out" element. Problem to note: be sure to disconnect the two leads that attach to the "hot surface" indicator bulb. I didn't and when pulling the wires off the element, the pressure broke the indicator bulb housing. The wiring harness does not have much "slack". I had to order a new hot surface indicator bulb. However, to my dismay the broken housing caused a short which burned out the temp circuit which is attached to the element/switch. Now this leads to another set of problems and repairs. I believe I know which burner is involved, but the indicator light stays on all the time. I therefore disconnected the leads which attach to the hot surface indicator bulb. The elements all work as expected.
