Just opened it up. Sure enough there are 2 elements. I never saw the second
one in all the years I have the roaster. Plug it in and sure enough one of
the elements did not heat up. I will take it into a small appliance repair
shop tomorrow and have both elements replaced. Thanks to everyone. I should
have looked closer and noticed the second element. Now anyone know what I
can do with 2 lbs of baked coffee?
