Yes that's a common problem. but not because there was a fire on top of the element it mean that is bad. have you try the oven after the fire?

The coil in my oven caught on fire


You will need to replace the element, If it was just the lower bake element, it is a very easy repair, two screws and two wire connectors. UNPLUG the stove FIRST!!

Grease fire in oven. elements would not come back


First verify 220 volts to the range where the cord connects.
Second,unplug the range and remove the element again and using a volt/ohm meter set for ohms or continuity check the element. No reading is a bad element.
Third, if power is OK and the element reads continuity check for power in at the oven control in the control panel.
Set for Bake and check power Out of the oven control.
No power out is a bad element.
If the control is OK,remove the oven temperature sensor and with the meter check for 1100 ohms +or- 25 ohms.
If not correct,replace the temp sensor.

IT CAN BE IF THE ELEMENT HAS NOT BEEN REPLACED FOR A LONG TIME AND IT SOUNDS LIKE THE TERMOSTATS HAVE FAILD SO REPLACE ELEMENTS AND TERMOSTATS AND YOUR OVEN WILL HAVE A NEW LIFE .

Bake element got very bright then sparked and caught fire.


Hi, Just go ahead and replace the old element. It happens with no real reason. The new element should work great.

Baking element


oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.
