Question about Ovens
I have a Moffat Gourmet 300, model # MSS 4053 H. Recently the bottom element burned out rather dramatically, going off like a welding rod. I replaced it, but it did not work. I then found a fuse was burned out and replaced it too. Then the element came on on its own and would not shut off, with the oven reaching the temperature that it would go to to clean the oven. Suspecting a relay had shorted out when the element burned out, I replaced it too. It then appeared to work properly on its first test run, with the new element cycling on and off as it usually would. The next day when the oven was used the element didn't shut off when it reached temp, even though the oven controller was no longer indicating that it was heating. I took out the fuse to stop the element from continuing to heat. What other component could be at fault? This is an old stove, so parts are hard to find. Where is the best place to look for parts for it?

SOURCE: heating element will not heat
With all that you said, I would suspect an open or faulty element. It is pretty much the most obvious solution.
If you have any electronically ability and you are going to open the oven, use an ohm or resistance meter, check the amount of ohms and use the upper element as a reference for the correct reading.
The element will either read open or good. You can use a light tester also and if the light lights between the two connectors of the elements, then it is ok and look elsewhere.

We had the same thing happen and now they came and said it was the clock that needs to be replaced. They said that controls the oven. Even though clock is on and working the function for turning on the oven is not
