Do I need an electrician to put in the new element?

Not at all. If you're handy you can definitely replace the part yourself. You'll need to unplug the oven or turn the circuit breaker off first however. Then just open the door and remove the oven racks. Next, remove the screws going into the back panel holding the element in place. Pull the element forward carefully so that the wires don't disconnect behind the oven. Then unplug the wires and plug the new wires onto the new element.
