Guy came over. Looked at stuff. Fiddled and such (I'm too hungry to sit and type out the whole thing). Boils down to that it would take something like $150 to fix it. However, he said that, once stoves start getting past 8 or 10 years, things start breaking (electric ones, at any rate). He said mine looked at least 12 years old, and I imagine this was a new stove when the house was built in 1987. He said that I could probably get a new one for $279 or $299, something like that. He gave me a recommendation for a place to try that is sometimes cheaper than other places. And he also suggested Home Depot. So, I guess it's time to shop around. But I really need some food tonight, so I guess it's takeout time.
