Is my oven about to die?
I have just baked a Scali loaf and noticed a very bright light in the base of the oven. There was a red hot area about 2" from where the element plugs in, almost as though something was burning on the element. The stove is a basic Whirlpool that came with the house so it is quite old, and I have been cranking it to 500* pretty often - and hoping that it would last for yet another bake. I know there are mechanically gifted TFL members and wonder if someone can give me some kerbside advice? How difficult is it to change the element if that is the problem? I REALLY don't want to have to replace the stove, A.
