As luck would have it, I found the HP parts I ordered to replace my dead
thermal fuse.

It is P/N 10811-80008 and is labeled 'FUSE - THERMAL 115C'.  So, you may
have hit it exactly.

Fellow Time-Nuts,
the polyfuse was finally replaced now with a thermal fuse. The closest I 
got my hands on was 115degC. Fits nicely and oven is heating up again :)

Pictures are updated (well, the last picture at least.. just for reference):
