I recently had a small fire in my GE oven. (Spectra, I believe). It was in the element and appeared to be electrical in nature. The spark/ flame did not go out until we turned to breaker off. Once the flame was out we could see the element had burned completely in half. I am wondering if it is possible to replace the element rather that buying a new oven. And more importantly, if so, is that a safe thing to do?

Exclamation Oven Element Failure

That is a common (although possibly frightening ) way oven elements sometimes fail (see the following link).

That is usually what's done, yes. You can see the element used in your oven and read some tips about that job at the following links:
