I don't recall seeing that specifically, though it's been discussed in several different places. From what I can tell from pictures of the fixtures, you could probably replace it if you're handy with wires and soldering; the elements are soldered onto the wires from the switch IIRC. In that case I would probably try to put a "female" receptacle in the fixture as opposed to re-hard wiring a new element. But really, the fixtures themselves aren't that expensive (I just bought one from Amazon for like $10), and you'd have to buy the new element anyway.

But again, if you're under warranty, give your dealer a call. My dealer is good about me providing the labor and them providing the parts. It saves us both a whole lot of time and effort (and money).

Of course, all of this assumes it's truly the fixture that's bad. I guess I would back up a few steps and put a volt meter on the wires just to make sure...

I called a dealer a few towns over and they confirmed that I have to order the entire fixture. I'm not a fan of the fixture anyway, so I will replace it with one that's more appealing. I'm also out of warranty since I'm the second owner. Thanks for all the replies. This site is awesome.

If that doesn't work Home Depot, Lowes or a hardware store. Key is to take the bulb along you need to replace.
Unless it's one of the integrated LED's Lowe's Home Depot.
I took a bulb out of one of the dinette lights, no bulb markings, to Lowe's. Employee in electric took one look @ the bulb went to the bulbs and handed me a T3? 20w halogen. Purrrfect fit
