Is it under panel on bottom of oven
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes it is under the bottom panel correct or you can remove the front lower grill plate and you should be able to get at it. Often they burn out or do not glow as bright as they should causing that issue. Very common.
