are there any discolored spots?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Towards the ack of element it looks a little more whiter than the rest and in one segment there seems to be a spot that looks like it has something dripped on it but it isn't a food drip. Could that be a burnt spot? Is the answer replacement????
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
i would replace the element, its bad, shut the breaker off before removing this there is power to one side at all times, you can order this @ http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-JBS16GOK1AD+-%3d%3di3358&PartID=3358 thanks Bryan

I'll probably shut breaker and unplug. Are there wires to worry about or is it a "plug In" approach. ?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
the wires are screwed on the element in this one,just take the two 1/4 screws out holding the element in and pull it out undo the screws on the wires and replace
