If you need to replace the element, the best thing to do is remove the old warming drawer element and bring it into an appliance parts store. They can match up the mounting resistance with a new element because this oven is far too old to have the OEM element still made I'm sorry to say. All you can do is bring the old element into a parts store and have them match it up as best they can.

What about an old installation manual.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 1 year ago

Nothing was recorded digitally on units this old unfortunately. There are no diagrams, manuals, or anything of that sort that you can get on appliances made before the 1980's.
