Hey guys, i forgot to ask  - where is the best online source to get these elements from?  The element is still holding, but i do need to order one and have on hand.   Thanks for the response, this is a very informative site.    Any help greatly appreciated.

I read this info about repairing a broken heating element using a crimp type connector. In a pinch it may last a while but it is risky. The material in usually nichrome wire , brittle after years of use, and repairing it  using a crimped connector may cause a short and sparks before it trips a breaker or causes a t-stat to trip off. I have been working on dryers the last several years and it amazes me how much lint accumulates in the lower section. All that lint and a spark are all that is needed to start a fire.
