Question about Electrolux Ovens
I've never done this, but I would normally say yes, it's not going to be easy, especially if you've never done it, but depending on what you have to replace, it might not be as bad as you think. Here is Sear's site with diagrams of your oven:
In the diagrams, the upper oven should have the parts you need. Not having the oven in front of me, I'm unsure of the exact part you're going to replace, but these diagrams should give you the part number, and hints as to taking the unit apart.
A service manual would be helpful, but perhaps you won't need one if you study the diagrams well. Sears might have the manual available, if you need it. Here is Sear's support site, where you can chat with a tech, if you have to. They often know the answer:
Good luck, hope this helps you, and thanks for using FixYa.

Use "The Works Toilet Bowl Cleaner" to dissolve the foil. *Caution* when the cleaner is applied to the foil a chemical reaction occurs releasing some harmful fumes so please use outside or in a well ventilated area. I just did this to a Frigidaire oven I bought from Lowes at a discounted price. The previous owners bought it, did not read the owners manual or just disregarded the warnings on using foil in the oven and thought they would line the bottom pan with foil to help make it easier to clean (Good idea, but don't try it on the hidden element ovens). With the heating element being hidden under the drip pan the heat is hot enough to melt the foil and fuse it to the pan. Now most of the pans on these ovens are removable by just a couple of screws and I strongly recommend removing the pan when doing this. Squirt some Works toilet bowl cleaner on it in a well ventilated area and watch it go to work. It took about 15 minutes for it to dissolve all the foil on my oven, then I rinsed it clean and reinstalled it in the oven. The pan does have a slight discoloration on it, not from the cleaner but from the foil being melted onto the pan, if you choose you can buff this out. Most of the modern ovens have the ceramic coated drip pans in them so the Works toilet bowl cleaner will not harm them, unless you have scratched the finish off. Works Toilet bowl cleaner contains a fair amount of hydrochloric acid which is what makes this work so well.
