Where are the heating coil wires found?

I am asking where I can find a NEW heating coil wire?

Thomas Frye - Reply

There is continuity in the heating coil wire, so I believe something else is causing my problem. There is one terminal on the heating element

that has a curved, rigid, bulbous hotdog shaped component that is right close to the terminal on the heating element. I am not sure what it is.

One can be seen in the picture at the top of the page in the introduction.
