LRE3194ST LG Range oven not heating properly - What is this burned up part?

Good morning! I am back after a few years absence. Several years ago I was here troubleshooting a Samsung range. I ended up getting rid of it, and have had an LG range that has been trouble free for about 4 years....until now.

My wife reports that when she pre-heats the oven, it dings letting us know it is up to temp, but it's not really there. If it's set ot 375, it might get up to 325. And then it hovers well below the acceptable temp range.

I took off the back panel last night to take a look, thinking I'd replace the temp sensor first. But low and behold, I see this. What is this burned up wire? I'm not sure what the issue is, but I'm confident this is not helping our oven in any way.

What is this burned up wire?

The burnt wire terminal is attached to a heating element.

The wire needs to be cut back to an unaffected portion of wire and a new wire terminal installed. The element terminal it was attached to needs to be inspected as well. If discolored or burnt also, the element may need to be replaced or the same thing will likely happen again.

I'm not sure what the issue is

Me either.
