Well, I called Sears and they said to replace the lower thermostat, which I did. However, I tested the old one by holding it up to a lit light bulb and it clicked and broke connection (I tested it with a multimeter). So I ohmed the upper and lower heating elements, with wires disconnected, and they both ohmed out at exactly .015. Aren’t they supposed to ohm out at 0.00?
