You might be, but should remove the element and inspect the connector on it, and the plug for signs of heat damage and/or electrical pitting. That's the more likely problem. If you see signs of these problems, replace the element, part number 2183, price $28.40. You can buy it at The receptacle is not listed on the website, but you can call them at(NNN) NNN-NNNNto find out if they have one. If not, you should be able to find one at a local repair shop. The thermostat is no longer available from the manufacturer, but should also by able to be matched, if you need one.
