freestyl 808 grill elements are hanging down and hit the food

This answer was rated:

freestyl 808 grill elements are hanging down and hit the food - is something missing that should be supporting the elements?
Yes, there should be clips that support the elements to the side. Look closely and you should see the clip support. If you use a flashlight, you will be able to see the support clips, the screws may have come out and will be down at the bottom. Take a look and let me know.

there are no clips at the side - just two slots in the roof of the grill cavity that pretty much align with the front-facing coil of each outside part of the element
The slots are where the support clips will go for the support. Can you see any clips on the elements? The clips are on the elements and will go into the slots to hold it. Does that make sense? Can you see the clips on the elements?

I thought this may be the case - no clips anywhere - they must have been removed and discarded by the previous tenant - these clips are just metal, nothing too special? Obviously, something capable of handling the heat of the element.
Yes, and they support the element into the slots you see. Look though the bottom of the oven maybe they have fallen in there and are still there...
