Electric Range Frigidaire "Pics"
 
4 Attachment(s)

This stove is only a little over 2 years old, Tonight my wife was cooking and she heard a pop and the bottom element stoped working but the broil and the top burners were working fine. After it cooled down I unpluged it and took the back panel off and discovered the wire on the right connection of the bottom element was melted off. I also seen 2 strike marks where the wire hit the panel. All I had to fix it was the yellow connector pictured so I cut off the bad part of the wire and crimped on the new female connector and pluged it into the male connector and the element started working again. My Question is, the connector I used was the same size as the one that came off but this one has a plastic sleve where you crimp it, but all the others on the stove are just metal. So should I replace it with an all metal one or should this one work? also what would have caused this and could this happen again? what do you suggest I do about this? thanks for any help.
