Hello, I can help you with this. Is there any rusting on the metal surface?
Also does this model have the element underneath (hidden) or on top of the bottom?
No rusting. It is a convection oven. Heating element on top.
The element could be removed, the bottom sanded clean and painted with a high temp enamel paint but it wouldn't last forever and would be as good as the person doing it. Some ovens you can replace the cell itself. Do you have the model number?
Forgot it is self cleaning. Just bought the house. Model number is(NNN) NNN-NNNNor(NNN) NNN-NNNNoff of the manual.
The liner can be replaced on this, it costs 140$ at sears.com and would cost about 300 or so in labor depending on the service company.
Here is the link to the part.
What type of company does this kind of work? Is it safe to use until I get it fixed?
Safe to use, the only thing that can happen is the liner can rust, an appliance repair company would be the only person to have replace this. It's a big job.
Thank you so much for all your help!
Glad to be of service. please make sure an leave feedback, and let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks!
